When the new management of Miss World Philippines – MWPO (or Miss World Philippines Organization) held a media conference at New World Makati Hotel last July 7, five beautiful ladies graced the occasion and made the proceedings more special. They all have one thing in common – having won the Miss World Philippines crown in different years with Megan Young successfully clinching the country’s very first Miss World crown ever. The other four are Miss World 2011 1st Princess Gwen Ruais, Miss World 2016 3rd Runner-Up (and the reigning national titleholder) Catriona Gray, Miss World 2015 Top 10 Finisher Hillarie Parungao and Miss World 2012 Top 15 Finalist Queenie Rehman. If only Valerie Weigmann was here, then the cast would have been complete.
Anyways, the support of the five ladies has given the new management a five-star touch given their unified presence. MWP National Director Arnold Vegafria and MWPO General Manager Bessie Besana couldn’t be happier with the positive turn of events. Hopefully, this year’s edition will be the best to date.
Finals night will be on September 3 with the venue still to be announced. And GMA-7 will be the Official Network.
