Pleased to share with you Episode 5 of Pageantry Norms Season 3 which happens to be Part 3 of our Christmas Episodes and the last one for 2020. Miss Globe 2020 Lorinda Kolgeci was unable to join due to connection issues in Kosovo. But I am happy spending online time with Miss Earth 2018 Phuong Khanh Nguyen, Miss Universe Singapore 2020 Belle Ong and Miss Globe Philippines 2020 Rowee Lucero.
The program will have a one week mid-season break, but we will be back on January 10 for Episode 6 titled “Happy Pageant New Year 2021” featuring some of my favorite pageant personalities – one from BPCI, one from MWPO and one from Mutya Pilipinas plus one former Miss Universe Philippines titleholder.
During the Virtual Press Conference hosted by Miss Universe Singapore National Director Valerie Lim – along with the 2019 titleholder Mohanaprabha Selvam – the representative of Singapore to the 69th Miss Universe was formally introduced. She is Bernadette Belle Wu Ong.
26 year-old Belle is Philippine-born to full Chinese parents. At the age of 10, her family migrated to Singapore and has been staying there ever since. So it shouldn’t surprise you that she is just as fluent in Filipino as she is in English and Conversational Mandarin. Professionally, she is an Events Host, Actress and Professional Model.
Belle will undergo part of her trainings here in Manila before the Miss Universe competition in 2021. She was initially delegated for Miss Charm International in Vietnam. But with the pandemic and limitations, the organization has decided to send her to MU instead.
Bernadette Belle is a woman of the world. A model, host and actress, Belle has lived and worked both in Singapore and abroad, making her an excellent communicator who can relate to a variety of cultures and backgrounds. She is a diligent hardworker who believes in continuous learning. She has also worked 4 jobs to put herself through school while she was in Australia. A graduate of Accounting and Finance, she is also trained in the culinary arts.
Do watch a video of Belle during last year’s national competition.
