Last year, 5’9″ Brenna Cassandra Gamboa survived some of the toughest cuts in any Miss Philippines-Earth edition ever. She made it all the way to the finals night. But then again, she was stopped in her tracks at the Top 10 level. She failed to advance and bid goodbye to the crown which landed on Athena Mae Imperial’s head. She treated everything as an experience that strengthened her resolve even more to give another pageant a try. This year, she enlisted for Miss World Philippines 2012 and officially became Candidate #16. In the roster, she belongs to the group with previous beauty contest experiences (along with Queenie Rehman, Maryanne Misa, Fer Mary Baliquig, April Love Jordan and Carla Lizardo). Will the past exposure do her more good come finals night on June 24? Personally, this Fil-Am beauty has her share of pluses that qualify her for the crown. But there seems to be something missing. Must be the lack of oomph? She has better than creditable communication skills in English. But how far will this complement her bid?
Let’s see how Brenna will step up to the plate in this one. 😉
