  1. Sir Norman, after niya, sino pa ang mga matatangkad na local beauty queens?

  2. if i may add a little trivia, Jennifer Mendoza was a volleyball player before she was a beauty pageant contestant/runner-up.. i believe she was with the volleyball team representing Western Visayas during the 1976 Palarong Pambansa held in Lucena..our hometown in Quezon hosted the Western Visayan delegation and she was the talk of the town then, tall ladies very uncommon then ( even now, given her height )..it was a pleasant surprise to see her on tv later, as a candidate in the now defunct Miss RP, then the local franchise for Miss World..

    • ang pagkakaalam ko sa mutya ng pilipinas siya sumali at siya ang nanalo.

    • Maria Rosario Aspillera Díaz was popularly known as Rio Diaz. She 1st joined Miss RP in 1976 but was left unplaced. She was crowned Mutya ng Pilipinas in 1977 and won Fourth Runner-up in the Miss Asia Pageant that same year.
