At the poolside of Diamond Hotel Philippines before lunch today, the eighty-four (84) Official Candidates of Miss Earth 2017 were presented to members of the Press in their white two-piece swimwear by Ricky Abad. The media came out in full force as cameras clicked endlessly and videos were recorded of their favorites.
Voting for Darling of the Press was conducted, and host delegate Karen Ibasco got the Gold, with front-runner Paweensuda Drouin of Thailand settling for Silver and a surprise Bronze medalist in Abigail Chama of Zambia.
