Miss Intercontinental 2017 Veronica Salas of Mexico
The Top 3
Veronica Salas Vallejo of Mexico is the new Miss Intercontinental after she defeated 64 other contenders for the title. Our very own Katarina Rodriguez is 1st Runner-Up, with Cathelijne Heppenhuis of the Netherlands getting 2nd Runner-Up. All three ladies were also awarded as the best in their respective continents.
Watch a video of their post-Coronation interview as (a teary-eyed) Miss Philippines Katarina Rodriguez expressed her #real feelings about placing so heartbreakingly close to becoming the country’s first winner in the competition. You would really wonder why she was specifically asked to speak in Filipino – perhaps to express her true sentiments? (Her placement brings back memories of 2015 when Christi McGarry also finished 1st Runner-Up in the same pageant).
Now watch how Katarina nailed the Q&A

Tall and tan and young and lovely. The adjectives fit her well.
And at a veritable height of 5’11”, Christi Lynn Landrito McGarry is one of the two tallest Official Candidates in Bb. Pilipinas 2015 (the other one being six-footer Crissa Mae Mendiola). She held the title of Mutya ng Pilipinas Asia-Pacific 2010 and represented the country in that year’s edition of Miss Intercontinental. In Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, she left quite a good impression, enough to make her a part of the Top 15 and declared as Queen of Asia-Oceania. Watch her crowning moment during Mutya 2010.

This year, 24 year-old Christi Lynn could be one of the designated spoilers of Aces & Queens for the crowns at stake. For obvious reasons, she can no longer be considered a potential successor to Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental Kris Tiffany Janson. But still, there will be at least four more titles to vie for. And this statuesque Fil-American beauty is more than pumped up to give the competition her best shot. She has already fulfilled the residency requirements of BPCI so there should no longer be cause for concern in that regard. All she has to do is to focus on the challenge at hand.
And now, here’s one more look at Christi Lynn L. McGarry.
