Sure, 2nd Runner-Up and Global Ambassador Janelle Olafson was missing (maybe she had prior commitments in Manila that prevented her from joining). 1st and 3rd Runners-Up and also Global Ambassadors Perlyn Ocampo and Sammie Anne Legaspi were present. But it is the absence of 4th Runner-Up Christine Horstmann that got me into thinking, along with the fact that Clarize Angelica Barrameda now wears a Miss Global Philippines Runner-Up sash. A promotion definitely happened. And with that, could a removal be far behind?
The usual suspects are either Janelle or Christine. Their absence makes it look unofficial that one of them could have been pulled out or something. And a Press Presentation could be looming soon to make things more official on what actually happened.
Be that as it may, I am happy with Clarize being part of the court now. She fully deserves to be up there with the rest. 😉
