More than three months after being crowned as Reyna ng Aliwan 2019 during this year’s Aliwan Fiesta, Nicole Borromeo (of Sinulog Festival of Cebu) was stripped of the title when the organizers finally reached a decision to make the bold move when the Cebuana joined Miss Millennial Philippines 2019 – a direct violation of the stipulations in her contract which she and her manager conformed to prior to winning the annual festival-themed national competition last May.
In her place, 2nd Runner-Up Roi Neeve Comanda of Panagbenga Festival of Baguio City was chosen to take over the unfulfilled reign, and was given her ceremonial crowning during a Press Conference held at the Davao Ballroom of Sofitel Philippine Plaza.To continue what Borromeo (right photo) is now unable to do, Neeve will be the one to tour around the Philippines and grace the various festivals in the country in preparation for the next Aliwan Fiesta. She reigned as Miss Baguio Tourism last year. She is 20 years old and a freshman Tourism major at the University of the Cordilleras.
Best of luck to the new Reyna Ng Aliwan!
