New leaders have emerged as Savannah Gankiewicz of Hawaii (fondly called “Moana” by the other candidates) zoomed her way to the top of the scoresheets and was named Best in Swimsuit. On the other hand, repeater Jannie Alipo-on of Navotas City is starting to show that 3rd time could be a charm after bagging both Best in Resort Wear and Mutya ng Pilipinas Hannah’s. Both ladies did very well during the preliminary judging interviews the night before and appear to be headed for front-runner status in the thick of the fight for the three crowns at stake.
Other ladies who did well were Lian Enumerable of Negros Island Region who was chosen as Mutya Photogenic, with Arianne Viardo of Pampanga and Suzanne Perez of California getting 2nd Runner-Up positions in the Swimsuit and Hannah’s categories, respectively.
Onwards now to the Regional Costume Competition which will be held at The Plaza of Resorts World Manila tomorrow night at 6pm.
