If the crown is really meant for you, then it will land on your head no matter what the circumstances are.
As 1st Runner-Up of Mutya Pilipinas 2019, Cyrille Payumo was perfectly happy with the placement. It was her first national beauty pageant, after all. But it didn’t take long for her to ascend to one of the major titles when the original winner for Mutya Tourism International – Tyra Goldman – had to be replaced as per the strict rules of the Malaysia-based organization.
So off to Malaysia this beautiful and statuesque Kapampangan went. She did everything possible to represent the country well. No stones were left unturned, including the online voting where she placed a strong 2nd in the final tally.
Cyrille also won Best in National Costume
During the finals, Cyrille grabbed just one special award – Best in National Costume – while the representatives of other ASEAN, Asian and European nations kept on receiving one subsidiary title after the next.
It cannot be denied, though, that our bet was a stand-out in more ways than one. And when the winners in the magic circle were being announced, her country name was not being called. That is, up until the biggest one when Tan Sri Datuk Danny Ooi finally revealed that “Miss Tourism Philippines” is the winner of Miss Tourism International 2019/2020.
Congratulations, Cyrille! Savor the victory and be gloriously happy that you will return to the country with a 5th BIG win in this competition.
Congratulations to Mutya Pilipinas Tourism International Cyrille Payumo who was just crowned Miss Tourism International 2019/20 in Petaling Jaya, Malaysia!

Best of luck to Mutya Pilipinas Tourism International 2019 Cyrille Payumo who departed for Malaysia earlier to represent the country in Miss Tourism International 2019.
Bring back the crown to the Philippines, dear!
Mutya Pilipinas recently announced that – due to the new policy of the Miss Tourism International Pageant in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – and in compliance with their latest rule, being “naturally-born in the country the candidate represents and no-dual citizenship”, Miss Cyrille Payumo, First Runner Up will replace Miss Tyra Goldman in the November 2019 Competition.
“We respect the rules of the Organization and assure them of our 100% compliance“ said Cory Quirino, President of Mutya Pilipinas after her telephone conversation with Tan Sri Datuk Danny Ooi, President of the Miss Tourism International Pageant.
“However, so as not to deprive Ms. Goldman of her opportunity to compete, we are presently studying possible options for her in other respectable international competitions. She is a gem of a beauty queen who can proudly and ably represent the Philippines”, stressed Quirino.
After checking out the Final Q&A portion of Mutya Pilipinas 2019 above and seeing the performance of Kapampangan Cyrille Payumo, it’s so easy to understand why she lost her claim for one of the crowns.
Now, watch my interview with now Mutya Pilipinas 2019 1st Runner-Up Cyrille Payumo and how she handled the critics and bashers about her performance during the pageant, especially the dreaded Q&A where her answer to the final question went viral on social media.
