The ladies (teens, if you will) have started arriving in Mato Grosso do Sul, Campo Grande, Brazil for the Miss Global Teen 2010. Misses Philippines Mariella Castillo and South Africa Lisa de Bique are the first to check in at the Bahamas Hotel last weekend and have become roommates for the entirety of the pageant.
Miss Philippines Mariella Castillo (2nd from left) and Miss South Africa Lisa de Bique (in blue) were the first ladies to arrive for the Miss Global Teen 2010 competition. They are pictured here with the pageant organizers.
Mariella travelled close to 48 hours before landing in Campo Grande and it amazes the organizers that she still looks so fresh and beautiful after the long and punishing flights (including connections and layovers) to South America.
Even after close to 48 hours of travel going to Brazil, Miss Philippines Mariella Castillo looked fresh and ready to pose for the cameras.
