From the original 25 (with showbiz personality Arci Munoz being ‘pulled out’ by TV5) Official Candidates of Miss World Philippines, I am liking 11 ladies so far. Actually, there are a lot of promising contenders in this batch. But to separate the ones who are instantly ready for Miss World 2012 (since the winner will have to be in China by July 18) will yield at least 3 names (Mary Ann Misa, Queenie Rehman and Carla Lizardo), with three more as possibilities (Rizzini Alexis Gomez, Paula Bartolome and April Love Jordan). Without further ado, here are my running favorites for the competition which will have its coronation night on June 24 at the Manila Hotel Tent.
