Going into the Top 12 (only for this edition in connection with the June 12 Independence Day celebrations), the semifinalists were subjected to a unique “Earth Talk” interview where the ladies picked a “popular hashtag” in a container and expounded on the same. It was here where both Schweighart and Gregorio performed in relatively middling fashion as they were required to explain words that were less than impressive. Artajos gave the most solid reply that sealed her Top 5 placement.
But when the Final Q&A got underway during Top 5, the strong favorites really delivered and the judges’ choice on who to succeed Angelia Ong landed on the head of Schweighart. Artajos also gave a remarkable answer but somehow, she was already outweighed by the two ladies ahead of her in terms of cumulative performance in swimsuit, Filipiniana gown and all.
Imelda Schweighart will now represent the country in Miss Earth 2016 which – according to reports – might be hosted in Macau.
For the special awards handed out last night, Gregorio was named Miss Hana Shampoo, with Eva Reinoso of Alaminos, Pangasinan getting Miss SM Markets. Jan Abejero of Quezon City was named Best Eco Beauty Video with Krissandra Abel of Lobo, Batangas as Eco-Warrior.
Watch Schweighart’s winning Top 5 reply below.
Congratulations to all the winners!
I must say MPE queens this year are more beautiful than the BBP queens this year.
Wow Imee is from KF!!!! Galing talaga
Fantastic show – despite some less than appealing camera shots, the stage, presentation are sleek and simple.
congratulations to imelda – despite i do not agree with her answer – she gave a confident answer.
i love the hashtag questions. it like back in the early 2000 when the ladies were shown pictures and have the interpret the picture. very relevant and up to the times.
I think Bb Pilipinas should learn now from Miss Philippines Earth on keeping up with times.
Angelia looks stunning in that Almodal dress. Imelda should wear one of his creation for Miss Earth 2016.
Cannot wait to know where will Miss Earth 2016
