Time for the girls. Here are the 15 female contestants vying for Ms. Eco-Tourism Philippines of Mossimo Bikini Summit The 2011 Edition. Photos courtesy of Mossimo’s Eco-Tourism website:
So far, the girls I’m liking so far – bikini-wise – are Kim de Guzman, Melissa Tavora, Chill Torralba and Maria Martinez. If it’s a beauty titleholder in focus, then I can see potentials in Mira Mae Dimmerling, Hershey Montecastro, Nicole Kaufmann and Janelle Olafson. I’m actually a bit surprised that Nicole joined the fray, after misses in the Bb. Pilipinas and Miss Resorts World Manila pageants. Let’s see if she has lady luck on her side for this one.
Anyways, the finals night will be held at Canyon Cove in Nasugbu, Batangas on June 18, 2011.
Okay, let’s start with the male candidates first. The ladies will follow in another post.
These 16 guys will be vying for the title of Mr. Eco-Tourism Philippines 2011 which is also known as Mossimo Bikini Summit The 2011 Edition (images courtesy of rddantes.com):

Mark Luz and Jolo Garcia
Kevin Donelly and Kiko Matos
Judah Cohen and Charles Flores
Alvin Haider and Ryan Briese
Aaron Yanga and Russel Gooh
Benj Bolivar and Kyle de Ortega
Martin Flores and JD Espinosa
Following the bikini theme of the competition, my shortlist would include Renzie Ongkiko (very deserving although he is on the short side of height), Mark Luz, Nelson Banzuela and Aaron Yanga. I would also choose any of the four to become Mr. Eco-Tourism Philippines 2011.
Pageant Date will be on June 18, 2011 at Canyon Cove in Nasugbu, Batangas. Visit their website for more details.
