This quartet is easily getting the biggest initial noise with their just-announced candidacy for Miss World Philippines 2018 – Katarina Rodriguez, Maureen Montagne, Kim De Guzman and Arienne Calingo. And it is up to them (and their respective fans/supporters) to keep the momentum on their side or allow the other contenders to make significant inroads into the competition itself.
Personally, I would never take anything lightly because there are so many potential winners among the thirty-three other successful aspirants. I can name at least 1/4 of the rest as capable of pulling a win (but not for now). And we still haven’t seen the three ladies from the overseas Filipino Communities who will complete the roster of 40.
So all I can say is this.
Let the (bloody) Battle of Beauties begin!
