Earlier today, the fifteen (15) ocean ambassadors of Miss Scuba Philippines 2017 were presented to the media in a Press Presentation at the Belmont Hotel Manila in Resorts World Manila. This national competition is proof that quality over quantity is possible in a beauty pageant. Instead of assembling a large number of candidates, the organizers – led by National Director Cindy Pacia Madumma – opted for half of the usual number. And pageant colleagues were in unison that this is a good batch of contenders. There are crossovers from the big leagues such as Bb. Pilipinas, Miss Philippines Earth and Mutya ng Pilipinas.
Voted as Darling of the Press was Sherlyn Doloriel of Misamis Oriental who can be remembered as Best in Swimsuit of MPE2017, followed by two 1st Runners-Up Angela Gene Valdez (alumna of Bb. Pilipinas 2016) of Legazpi, Albay and Fel Banaybanay of Sogod, Southern Leyte.
All the ladies have been undergoing dive lessons to get certified, and more pre-pageant activities will take place in the weeks to come before the finals on October 10 at the Plaza Atrium of Resorts World Manila.
