Among the 48 Official Candidates of Miss Philippines Earth 2012, one lady easily stands out because of her beauty, styling and long curly tresses. Her name is Ina Dominica Guerrero, representing the Municipality of Daraga, Albay. The Management junior at Bicol University is another clear proof how beautiful and diverse the Bicolana women can be.
That said, do you guys think Carousel Productions is ready for a more exotic Miss Philippines Earth? We’ve already seen a number of mixed-racial winners (e.g. Karla Henry, Sandra Seifert, Tamera Marie Szijarto, Jeanne Harn and Laura Marie Dunlap) and fair-skinned ones (e.g. April Ross Perez, Carlene Aguilar and Psyche Resus), but never a darker beauty in the mold of Ina Dominica Guerrero above.
I, for one, would be happy having someone like her represent us in Miss Earth. But that would mean ignoring the fact the she is facing heavy competition from the more hyped and more environmentally articulate contenders in the batch. Let’s see if she can hold up her own when judgment time gets tough.
