Mary Ann Mungcal from Pampanga (the same province of outgoing titleholder Camille Hirro) was crowned Miss Global Philippines 2017 during the close of the finals held at the Newport Performing Arts Theater of Resorts World Manila. She will now set her sights on representing the country in the next edition of Miss Global 2016 later this year in a still undiclosed host country.
Earlier, Mungcal cornered a lion’s share of the special awards – including Best in Swimsuit and Long Gown – before slowly climbing to the top of the rankings. She fumbled during the Top 10 Q&A but redeemed herself fairly well during the Top 5 that sustained her pole position on the judges’ scoresheets.
Her court includes 1st Runner-Up Rowee Sasuluya, 2nd Runner-Up Jacqueline Mayoralgo, 3rd Runner-Up Mhaelen Patano and 4th Runner-Up Fina Galupa.
Congratulations to all the winners!
