Last year, Kagandahang Flores snatched the Bb. Pilipinas-International title via Nicole Schmitz. Will one of Rodgil Flores’ ladies duplicate the effort this year? Very possible. And one of his anticipated wards, showbiz newcomer Imelda “Imee” Schweighart, could be an excellent fit for the Miss International competition (especially if Japan hosts the same once again).
I know. I know. Why do I keep on insisting that only a mestiza or mixed-race candidate is appropriate for MI? It’s just that gut-feel tells me their type would grab better attention here in Asia more than anywhere else. Honestly, Charmaine Elima is another possibility for the same title. But then again, I’m not looking into that option right now (just as most of you are giving her a MUP peg). So let’s see what (good) fortune awaits Imee for BPI2013. 😉
