Let’s now focus on the Miss Philippines Earth 2012 candidates who crossed over from BBP or MWP.I’m pretty sure you’re all familiar with the three ladies above. They participated (and lost) in Bb. Pilipinas 2011. One of them, Samantha Purvor, even took full advantage of her youth last year by taking part in Miss World Philippines 2011 as well. No victories to speak of, but still with the potentials to win one. As part of this year’s roster of Miss Philippines Earth, they are capitalizing on their good communication skills (aside from physical beauty) to finally make a dent in the national pageant scene. Will they be more successful this time around? Kathleen Subijano, the younger sister of Bb. Pilipinas World 1994 Cara Subijano, is giving the environmentally-focused competition a try, aiming to exceed her semifinal placement in Bb. Pilipinas 2011. The more articulate Samantha Purvor, on the other hand, is dead set in fulfilling a life-long dream of becoming a beauty queen. And Glennifer Perido? She wasn’t able to create ripples in BBP, so she enlisted right after in Miss Casino Filipino 2011 where she snagged 1st Runner-Up honors to eventual winner Catrine Rosary Ocampo (an alumna of Miss Philippines Earth 2011). Who will be most successful among the three? I’m betting on Samantha Purvor in this one. She’s the one who fits what the organizers would love to have as their winner – smart, pretty and well-spoken. But who knows what magic Kathleen and Glennifer will weave in the contest? And lest we forget, there are several other contenders who will give them a run for their money.
Anyways, best of luck to all three in MPE 2012! May you serve as true role models for the preservation of Mother Earth! 😉
