Congratulations to Joanna Camelle Mercado of the Philippines. She is Miss United Continents 2022!
Camelle defeated 24 other candidates from different parts of the world to become our second big winner in the pageant after Jeslyn Santos last 2016.
Her five runners-up include Ecuador, Colombia, Venezuela, Paraguay and Mexico in that order.
I just love the spunk of Camelle. She was a one-woman band in Ecuador who relied on her strong determination to stand out from start to finish. Her interview in Spanglish definitely made her stand out in the Top 6. When it was just Filipinas and the host delegate in the Final 2, it’s easy to tell that the crown is already hers!
Congratulations once more, Filipinas!
