And you thought nobody got the right combinations from a total of 247 entries? Well, there is definitely one who submitted 100% accurate predictions. And this individual beat the deadline (September 27, 7:30PM) by just a little over an hour. She is not from the Philippines. She is not from anywhere around the Asian region. She’s not even from the US or Canada. She participated in my contest all the way from Bushmansrivermouth, Eastern Cape, South Africa! Let’s give it up for international reader Mary-Elizabeth Coetzee!
“Wow, I am soo pleased I predicted the top 3 in correct order. I know Miss Ghana was an outsider, so well done Africa, France + of course Congrats and well done Megan Young of Phillipines (sic). U deserved the Crown and by far the most beautiful Miss World ever !!!” gushes Ms. Coetzee after I informed her of the good news. In just a few, she will be receiving her USD100.00 gift card from Amazon.com.
And since we do not have a Philippine winner for the part of the prize package that can only be redeemed locally, I decided to give a consolation prize to one entry. He got all three (3) ladies right, except that he switched Misses France and Ghana. I gave more weight to the part that he got the cast complete. And he is reader Christian Mercado. He will receive the P2,000.00 gift certificate from Beverly Hills 6750 and a Starbucks Card (with P500.00 stored value).
Congratulations to Mary-Elizabeth and Christian! 🙂
I already coordinated with Mary-E regarding her prize. However, our consolation prize recipient – Christian Mercado – has not replied to my email yet, so I’m giving him a few more days to confirm mailing details. Otherwise, I might have to select another one.
See you again for our next contest which will start in mid-October – “Predict Miss Universe 2013 and her Runners-Up”! 😉
