Yesterday, the Pre-Judging of Mutya ng Pilipinas 2016 was held to select the ladies who will make it to the crucial first cut of the finals this coming Saturday, July 30 at the Newport Performing Arts Theater of Resorts World Manila. The thirty (30) candidates gave their individual best to the panel of judges in hopes of making the first big step towards claiming one of the crowns or an important placement for that matter.
My short-list includes a dozen of the contenders and they are: Lynette Bradford, Loudette Ali-poon, Joanna Rabe, Michelle Thorlund, Marielle Cartagena, Angela Yagaya, Dianne Lacayanga, Rianne Charlotte Kalaw, Mary Theresa Erna Gomez, Justine San Jose, Ganiel Krishnan and Renelyn Deguit.
Among the twelve ladies I named, my bets are on Justine San Jose for Mutya Asia Pacific International, Ganiel Krishnan for Mutya Tourism International and Michelle Thorlund for Mutya Overseas Communities.
Will these three fire it up all the way to the top crowns? We’ll see!
The TV telecast of Mutya ng Pilipinas 2016 will be aired iver at ABS-CBN the late morning (or 10am July 31) after the winners are crowned.
Good luck, ladies! 🙂
