But what really makes Christi Lynn McGarry more unique compared to the rest? I can name two (2):1) She was crowned Mutya ng Pilipinas Asia Pacific 2010 but was sent instead to Miss Intercontinental 2010 in the Dominican Republic after the original Mutya ng Pilipinas Intercontinental 2010 Carla Lizardo could not fulfill the overseas mission. She placed in the Top 15 and was named Continental Queen of Asia Oceania. In the same year, she was appointed to represent the Philippines in Top Model of the World where she also finished in the Top 15.
2) When Christi suited up for Bb. Pilipinas 2015, she wanted so much to win any of the titles at stake except for Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental for obvious reasons. But as fate would have it, she earned the right to represent us in Miss Intercontinental for a second time. The only difference is that she performed better by grabbing 1st Runner-Up honors to Valentina Rasulova of Russia and claiming the Continental Queen of Asia Oceania sash once more.Christi’s pageant career is colorful to say the least. Maybe the hues are not as bright as, say competing in either Miss Universe or Miss International. But all things being equal, her share of achievements cannot be sneered upon. Here is someone who vied twice for the same international pageant crown, made a creditable mark at first and returned as a more polished and prepared fighter five years later. All #ForThePhilippines.
2015 is too strong.. of course pia and janicel. We even see the likes of kylie and win being unplaced…
@ Rj1609 But, of course, destiny had other plans for both, in Japan and Bolivia. 🙂
Sigh, with the current pandemic and possible cancellations of national pageants, Christi could have been the perfect appointee as MUP. Her killer body and beautiful, almost bordering exotic face, coupled with her impeccable comm skills would have been a killer combo in Miss Universe. Sadly, she’s 2 years overaged for the title.
And I agree with some observations that she could have been sent to MI instead, I can definitely see her doing really well there. But the Pia-Janicel combo was just too strong in 2015 that they already barricaded the Top 2 titles as early as Press Presentation.
HAYNAKU, Mr. Tinio! This (McGarry’s participation at TMotW) confirms it.
You MUST CONVINCE JG et al to endorse MIG of Sorsogon to Mdme. CQ for appointment as our next rep. WILL WIN.
Personally meet with the First Couple Escudero, if necessary to ensure this happens. Your intervention as eminent pageantry blogger in the country will establish your dominion forever.
Mdme. CQ and Ms. Ongpauco-Escudero can take in the delights of a lavender plantation-distillery in the South while Sorsogona “gives face” (as Lu Sierra is wont to say) at the Riviera.
Next entry should be name of halfies winner in the Philippines who are proud to be Pinas but after their reign returned to their countries.
What are her plans in the future ? Is there a man waiting to marry her ? Maybe she can fulfill her MU dream through her daughter
Sana sumali ulit sya the following year… I would have loved to see her in MU pageant.
She would have joined again if she was allowed to . Maybe she can join a Mr. pageant in the future
It’s a pain knowing that Thailand has at least 3 stunners waiting to be named MUT … and I donot see any Filipina who can come up to that level.
oo nga pala… sorry I forgot.
McGarry should have been sent to International . I think she can go to any pageant and be noticed . Her feminine and queenly aura and great comm skills would have been a hit on the MI stage .
