When I stated in an earlier post that a participating Filipina in Miss Scuba International is capable of wiping out the competition, my confidence wasn’t shattered when I finally saw the ten (10) ladies competing for Miss Scuba Philippines 2012. At least half of the group is strong enough to wrest the title once fielded in the world finals to be held in Bali, Indonesia come November 30.
I can see any one among Janicel Lubina, Hannah Joy Demit, Christine Paula Love Bernasor, Raizza Guerra and Maria Espinoza as potential winners of the local contest, and easily stand out against the delegates from other countries (which include Australia, Belgium, China, Indonesia, Italy, Malaysia, Mexico, Mongolia, Netherlands, New Zealand, Panama, San Marino, Singapore, Thailand, the United Kingdom and the United States).
One of them will be crowned winner on October 27 at the Toyota Asian Cultural Center inside the UP Campus in Diliman. Whoever she is will travel to Bali to participate in diving expeditions and marine conservation projects prior to the coronation night at the Samur Paradise Hotel. My Top 2 picks are obviously Janicel and Hannah Joy. Hopefully, one of them comes out on top. 😉
