Hail! Hail! The Queens of the New Normal in Pageantry are here!
In what will go down Philippine Pageant History as the first-ever Virtual Edition of a National Beauty Competition, Roxanne Allison Baeyens of Baguio City was proclaimed Miss Philippines Earth 2020. She outlasted 32 other Eco Angels on her way to the title and the automatic right to represent the country in Miss Earth 2020. She is 23 years old, stands 5’4” and is an artist by occupation. Her environmental advocacy is centered on Urban Gardening. You might remember her as the lead in the Nescafe TVC titled “Receptionist” released late last year.
The court of MPE2020 – four ladies who will hold four equally-important titles
Her equally-important court is made up of:
Patrixia Sherly Santos of Daraga, Albay – Air
Gianna Margarita Llanes of Mandaluyong City – Water
Sherry Anne Tormes of Atimonan, Quezon – Fire
Ilyssa Marie Mendoza of Fil-Melbourne – EcoTourism
The judges for the Finals include former Miss Earth titleholders Alexandra Braun (2005) and Nicole Faria (2010), GMA Network VP for Program Management Joey Abacan, the #Greenman himself Matthias Gelber, Hana Shampoo Marketing Manager Carlos Bacani and former Miss RP Suzanne Gonzalez Gommer who represented the country in Miss World 1975.
It was not an easy journey for all the candidates as they had to pass through a pageant process that was entirely held online. While each one of them had the advantage of being in their respective comfort zones, the off-site presentation of their performances in each of the several preliminary competitions and three crucial areas of Prejudging placed them at the mercy of data/internet connection and an assortment of hardware that replaced the more traditional face-to-face judging they are used to. But in the end – and with the commendable efforts of the organizers – the results came convincingly for the panel of judges.
The five other #EcoAngels in the Top 10 who are now considered the runners-up include:
Justiene Ortega of the City of Manila
Alayzza Izzabelle Tolimao of South Cotabato
Arielle Jazmine Roque of General Santos City
Tsina Jade Chu of Iloilo City
Angeline Mae Santos of Quezon City
My big congratulations to all the winners!
Miss Philippines Earth 2020 Roxie Baeyens is ready to fly!
Starting today and each day till the end of the month, I will present three (3) Eco Angels of Miss Philippines Earth 2020 to familiarize you with their stats, environmental advocacy, interesting infos and why they want to be the next spokesperson for Mother Earth.
In just one glance, that is.
Let us begin with the candidates from Luzon and NCR:
This is it!
I have been maintaining my Youtube channel #normannormandotcom for quite some time, but it’s only now that I uploaded my first face-to-face vlog. Since we are already entering the #NewNormal of pageantry, it definitely is high time that I start vlogging on top of blogging. Pardon the still-amateurish effort, but I know it will improve in due time.
So for my first feature, I am sharing my early favorites for Miss Philippines Earth 2020. After yesterday’s post about the 33 Eco Angels vying for the crown, here now is my initial shortlist. Do keep in mind that the bulk of the competition will take place next month so the composition of my running picks is still subject to change as every phase of the preliminary events are held progressively.

Angeline Mae Santos is an independent candidate who signed up for Bb. Pilipinas 2020 last week. She hails from Trece Martires, Cavite and is a licensed Civil Engineer by profession. She is 25 years old, stands 5’7” and – for those who can’t seem to place the pageant she was last seen in – a former Official Candidate of Miss World Philippines 2018.
Angeline is currently taking up her Masteral studies in Engineering Management, major in Construction Management at the Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila. She also works as Civil Engineer II with the Department of Public Works and Highways.
Below is Angeline’s talent performance during the Charity Gala of MWP2018.
A gender and development focal person at DPWH, Angeline is a member of the Philippine Technological Council Women Engineers Network and Lifetime Member of the Road Engineers Association of Philippines. It’s kind of hard to imagine her wearing a hard hat everyday on the job, but that’s who she really is – a woman who enjoys excelling in a male-dominated industry.
Is there room for her as one of the Binibinis during the final screening of Bb. Pilipinas 2020?
In shots taken by Mark Neto Diaz with Creative Direction and Styling by Vhee Co plus swimwear by Bench Body, here are the 40 Beach Beauties of Miss World Philippines 2018.
By the way, they did their own makeups using BYS Cosmetics PH.
