Call her the missing member in the country’s roster of representatives for the Grand Slam beauty pageants of 2012. Miss World Philippines 2012 Queenie Rehman is last in, first out, i.e., last to be crowned nationally and first to compete internationally. Additionally, she carries the big weight on her shoulders to match – if not surpass – Gwendoline Ruais’ fantastic 2nd-place finish in Miss World 2011. And for this reason alone, we should give her our full support in Miss World 2012. The month of July is just a few days away, and by the middle part, she will already be sent-off to China to start her battle with more than a hundred beauties from all over.
It won’t be an easy journey for this Filipina-Pakistani looker. The unwelcome tension brought about by the political friction between the Philippines and China adds to the crazy equation. But if she sticks to her gameplan like a pageant pro, there should be no big obstacle to stand in her way. And for Pinoy pageant fanatics out there to whom money is no object, then you should start booking your flights to/accommodations in Ordos to cheer her during the MW homestretch by mid-August.
For now, let’s start building positive vibes for our rep. You can visit her official FB page (which, I was told, she administers herself) and follow on Twitter @queenie_rehman 🙂
