When the new management of Miss World Philippines – MWPO (or Miss World Philippines Organization) held a media conference at New World Makati Hotel last July 7, five beautiful ladies graced the occasion and made the proceedings more special. They all have one thing in common – having won the Miss World Philippines crown in different years with Megan Young successfully clinching the country’s very first Miss World crown ever. The other four are Miss World 2011 1st Princess Gwen Ruais, Miss World 2016 3rd Runner-Up (and the reigning national titleholder
) Catriona Gray, Miss World 2015 Top 10 Finisher Hillarie Parungao and Miss World 2012 Top 15 Finalist Queenie Rehman. If only Valerie Weigmann was here, then the cast would have been complete.
Anyways, the support of the five ladies has given the new management a five-star touch given their unified presence. MWP National Director Arnold Vegafria and MWPO General Manager Bessie Besana couldn’t be happier with the positive turn of events. Hopefully, this year’s edition will be the best to date.
Finals night will be on September 3 with the venue still to be announced. And GMA-7 will be the Official Network.

Details for the BWAP will follow soon.
Your thoughts, dear readers?
The changing of guards at Miss World Philippines is doing a lot of good for the beauty contest with a purpose. The active sourcing and screening invites have started early. Early birds are being encouraged to join the beeline for application.
And this year’s edition promises to be a real battle of the camps as well. Both Aces & Queens and KF have signified their intentions to field in their bets. And not to spoil the suspense too much, the princesses (or at least a couple of few of them) will have their pageant missions abroad if all negotiations are finalized.
Here’s the pitch now.

Catriona and Shamcey during the MPE event at Hannah’s
Last Friday night, Miss Universe 2011 3rd Runner-up Shamcey Supsup-Lee and Miss World 2016 3rd Runner-up Catriona Gray shared the limelight as beauty queen-judges during the Miss Earth Philippines Hannah’s 2017 Special Event of Miss Philippines Earth 2017 held at Hannah’s Beach Resort and Convention Center in Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte. The two beautiful ladies bonded fast as they spent two nights in the lovely venue to assess the ladies who participated in the side activity for the environment-themed pageant. And as expected, their personalities are an easy fit. No diva attitude whatsoever as they gamely went through the pre-judging and main events even if the flight from Manila to Laoag was seriously delayed and pushed all the night schedules into the weekend hours of the morning.

Over this weekend, a special event was held at the Premium Suites Poolside Area of Hannah’s Beach Resort and Convention Center in Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte where candidates of Miss Philippines Earth 2017 were brought to the vacation paradise called “Crown Jewel of the North” where they competed to become Miss Earth Philippines Hannah’s 2017. What added more glitter to the whole activity was the presence of Miss Universe 2011 3rd Runner-Up Shamcey Supsup-Lee, Miss World Philippines 2016 Catriona Gray, Miss Philippines Earth 2016 Loren Mar Artajos (with two members of her elemental court – Tim Alsowyed and Charinna Barro) and the visiting group of eighty-seven (87) members of the Lower House headed by Cong. Rodolfo Fariñas on a continuing inspection of tourist sites in Northern Luzon.
The candidates competed in swimsuits and evening gowns before getting grilled in the Top 10 Q&A. In the end, Shane Tormes of Mandaluyong City edged out all the beauties to win the special title. She was joined by two (2) runners-up April Rose Alegre of Davao and Mikaela Mendez of Tanza, Cavite. Interestingly, the top finishers are all present and former Miss Hannah’s Ecotourism Philippines alumni (a fact that underscores the high quality of winners in the host venue’s annual pageant).
Congratulations to all the winners! Many thanks to Col. Ricardo Nolasco Jr and Ronald Dominguez of Hannah’s for continuing to trust normannorman.com in the judging and media coverage.
Ever since Miss World Philippines 2016 Catriona Gray was talked about as possibly joining Bb. Pilipinas 2018, not a few among those who are planning to sign up for the next edition felt a cold shiver in their spines. Some are saying that the highest title is almost a given for this beautiful and charming Fil-Aussie. And I have told colleagues that it would really be best for her to take part in a beauty contest with several titles at stake. That way, the other candidates won’t feel left out in the hunt for a crown.
What are your thoughts, dear readers?
