Nonstop. That’s the best word to describe the hectic schedule of the Miss Earth 2012 ladies. And I’d like to think that they’re all having fun despite the little rest they had to go through. Anyways, next week should be exciting as their next stop will be Palawan where they will bask in the beaches of Puerto Princesa and enjoy a grand tour of the world-renowned Underground River.
Osmariel Villalobos of Venezuela continues to stamp her class above the rest of Group 2 after she was awarded Gold in the Swimsuit Competition at Golden Sunset Resort in Calatagan, Batangas. Coming in at 2nd is USA's Siria Bojorquez, good enough for Silver. Sara Kim of Korea got the Bronze. A non-medal earning award was given to Nathalia Moreira of Spain who was selected Gandang Ricky Reyes.
During the Resort Wear Competition held at Hotel Pontefino in Batangas City, the Gold Medal was won by Osmariel Villalobos of Venezuela, with Ilknur Melus Durasi of Turkey and Fabiana Granados of Costa Rica copping Silver and Bronze, respectively. Meanwhile, a non-medal earning award was handed to Shauny Bult of the Netherlands as Miss Earth Pontefino.
During the Walk With ME held at SM Mall of Asia this time, three ladies stood out as the People's Choices and were awarded medals as follows: Gold - Rocio Castellanos of Dominican Republic, Silver - Nathalia Moreira of Spain and Bronze - Natalia Pereverzeva of Russia.
During the Green Bag Challenge, three winners were awarded for each placement since this was a group activity. Gold was given to Australia, Belize and Belgium. Silver went to Bosnia & Herzegovina, Botswana and Austria. Bronze was co-shared by Singapore, South Africa and Slovak Republic.
A group of Miss Earth delegates did the 'I Love My Planet Earth School Tour' in Makati City led by Tamerin Jardine of South Africa. One lady who had a good time teaching the schoolchildren was Lea Sara Wittwer of Switzerland.
Gold Medalist as 'Fastest Learner' during the Liter of Light Project in San Juan was Darli Pacheco of Puerto Rico (Center, Top Photo), with Silver Medalist Gloria Ofa Blake of New Zealand and Bronze taker Lorraine Ditsebe of Botswana.
More to come! 😉

Samantha Purvor is one determined lady. She participated in Bb. Pilipinas 2011 but missed the Top 15. Not dampened by the non-placement, she went on to join Miss World Philippines 2011. She turned out luckier here by making it to the Top 12. This year, she is taking part in Miss Philippines Earth 2012 as Miss San Juan City. And she is bent on finally making her presence felt in the finals and scoop an element, if not the top plum itself. So far, she is maintaining a good stand as one of the favorites, having recently won Best in Swimsuit plus the Gandang Ricky Reyes awards during the swimsuit competition held at Golden Sunset in Batangas.
Could this be Samantha’s lucky year? Will she heave a sigh of relief come midnight of May 27 for victorious reasons? What do you think are the chances of this well-spoken beauty? 😉

Looks like the representative of Puerto Princesa City is going full steam ahead in establishing herself as one of the top favorites for Miss Philippines Earth 2011. In the swimsuit preliminary held at the Golden Sunset Resort in Calatagan, Batangas last weekend, Jonavi Quiray bested 48 other ladies to win the important special award of Best in Swimsuit. Let’s see how she fares in the evening gown preliminary. If she tops that one as well, chances are that she has already taken a major shine from the organizers and should be a shoo-in for the Top 5 come finals night in Puerto Princesa itself.
Aside from her, I like the ladies from Milaor, Las Pinas City, Narvacan, City of Manila and Cebu City. 😉
