This is truly the height of the worldwide beauty pageant season. Four, I repeat, four big international competitions are simultaneously happening in different parts of the globe. First, there is Miss Earth 2009 here in the Philippines. Then there is Mrs. World 2009 in Vung Tau, Vietnam. Meanwhile, the Miss International 2009 gets underway in Chengdu, China later this week, while the Miss World 2009 just winded up the London leg and the 115 delegates are now in Dubai, UAE for the short second leg en route to South Africa for the official pre-pageant activities and finals on December 12.
Here are some pictures of Bb. Pilipinas-World 2009 Marie-Ann Umali a few days after her arrival in London for Miss World 2009. In my opinion, she has the toughest competition ahead, on top of having more than 100 delegates to battle with.
