Last night, the Miss Earth 2017 Welcome Party was held at the Carousel Mansion in Mandaluyong City. Already checked in are 78 of the 90 expected delegates for this year’s crown. And just by first impressions, I am easily charmed by Paweensuda Drouin of Thailand who is one of the ladies to beat in this batch, along with Karla Aponte of Puerto Rico, Karen Bustos of Mexico and Andreia Gibau of USA. Rojina Shreshta of Nepal and Dominika Szymanska of Poland are worthy surprises as well. Of course, host delegate Karen Ibasco is not lagging behind.
Here are photos from the event.
