It is no longer a secret that the 47th Miss Intercontinental will be held in the Philippines from January 9-26, 2019. Coronation night will be on January 26 at the Mall of Asia Arena, with the delayed telecast airing (possibly over ABS-CBN pending final negotiations) a day after.
This is the reality awaiting Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental 2018 Karen Gallman – to be a host delegate to the arriving foreign candidates who will vie to become the successor of Veronica Salas of Mexico. It effectively doubles the pressure since we have not yet won the crown, and to aim for such on your own backyard could get tricky in the process.
Regardless of the possibilities and eventualities, Karen will bravely go through the challenge. She is armed with the knowledge that the support of her fans and supporters are within arms’ reach. You could say that she is the top favorite of the Filipinos to win, unless one or two of the other contenders will spring a big surprise the minute the visitors start pouring in.
