On top of the five (5) entries of Aces & Queens – Catriona Gray, Sandra Lemonon, Vinie Camille Dy Quiangco, Arienne Louise Calingo and Ralph Lauren Asuncion – thirteen (13) more aspirants showed up for the Final Screening of Miss World Philippines 2016 at the B Hotel in Quezon City.
The names of the other ladies have not been released yet, but I am pretty sure that – with the still underwhelming turnout of additional sign-ups – Viva Entertainment and GMA-7 will take matters into their own hands and make sure that they will still be able to assemble an acceptable number of qualified candidates for this year’s batch.
True, people are asking why go through such lengths if the title is looking like a lock for the most obvious winner. But this is still a beauty pageant search and CQGQ is obliged to come up with a competition that would pass the standards of the Miss World Organization for a title-dedicated national finals. Everything should go through a process. And the likelihood of a surprise candidate or two is still in the clear horizon if you ask me.
Watch out for what will happen next! 🙂
