Miss Philippines-Earth 2010 Kris Psyche Resus has the sole distinction of being the country’s representative to the first-ever Miss Earth to be hosted by another country. All roads lead to Nha Trang, Vietnam between now and December 4, by which time Miss Earth 2010 will have already been crowned by last year’s winner, Larissa Ramos of Brazil.
At Villa Immaculada in Intramuros, Manila, Carousel Productions hosted a formal send-off for Kris Psyche Resus. She is all set to leave for Vietnam to join more than 80 other ladies from all over the world to vie for the most unique and noteworthy international beauty pageant title – Miss Earth. She knows that the chances of becoming the 2nd Filipina to win Miss Earth are not the brightest (since the people behind it are all Filipinos and making another Miss Philippines get the crown in only 2 years’ time might not sit well with most), but she is extremely focused and determined to give it her best shot.
Personally, I will be pleased seeing her place as high as the Top 8, if not one of the court elementals in the Final 4. To say that she will be facing extremely tough competition would be an understatement because majority of the delegates have either been selected as representatives in Miss Earth-dedicated searches or as part of the winners’ circle in their biggest national finals. In fact, Osmel Sousa has already acquired the ME franchise for Venezuela which means that he will be sending over one of his thoroughbreds starting this year, with a formally-conferred Miss Venezuela-Earth 2011 (Caroline Medina) coming to Manila next year. This goes to show that the pageant is already being taken seriously by all participating countries.
Here’s wishing Kris Psyche Resus the best of luck in Miss Earth 2010! 😉
