And then there were ten. The list started with 50, up until last night’s Cultural Costume Competition and three separate eliminations prior. Miss Philippines-Earth 2011 is now down to the Ten Finalists who will ultimately vie for the crown come pageant night on June 5.
The Final 10 (in random order) are:
Miss Cebu City – Murielle Adrienne Orais
Miss Las Pinas City – Michelle Gavagan
Miss Fil USA East Coast – Brenna Cassandra Gamboa
Miss Puerto Princesa City – Jonavi Raissa Quiray
Miss Cotabato City – Edan Dafilmoto
Miss Pagadian City – Ma. Alicia Elena Ariosa
Miss Malolos City – Mary Denisse Toribio
Miss Mun.of Casiguran – Athena Mae Imperial
Miss Makati City – Tarhata Clio Shari Rico
Miss General Santos City – Catrine Rosary Ocampo

The last cut is really the cruelest and my heart goes out to the ladies who bid farewell at this juncture when they are way too close to reaching the coronation night. But this is how the 2011 competition has been designed so they really can’t do anything about it except cry over the elimination.
Good luck to the remaining qualifiers and may the best environmental advocate win! 😉
