The South Korea-based Miss Asia Pacific World (MAPW) competition used to hug controversies when its edition a couple of years back received backlash from some of the contestants who complained about the poor treatment they got from the organizers. But with the help of new individuals at the helm, the beauty-cum-talent search carries a renewed reputation. The tagline is “Super Talent Endeavor 2013” – much like a cross between Miss Asia-Pacific and America’s Got Talent but with no X’s involved in thumbing down a participant.
For this year, the beauty pageant being promoted as the #1 Super Talent Search in the World will start receiving its candidates in Seoul starting October 15. Finals will be on October 30 at 63 Tower City. And as Philippine representation, Czarina Rosales was appointed by local franchise holders. But who is this girl?
Czarina Rose Bautista Rosales is a professional R&B singer who once took part in ABS-CBN’s Star in a Million contest (Season 1 won by Erik Santos). While she did not win that one and was in fact eliminated much early on, a recording career – albeit struggling – followed. A duet with rap/hip-hop artist Gloc-9 (“Blues Niyang Itim“) was one of her more notable outputs. With beautiful exotic looks, good-enough height of 5’6”-ish and a radio-friendly singing voice, she could wow the judges of MAPW during the all-important talent rounds.

Let’s see if this girl has what it takes to stand out in Seoul and, hopefully, bring another crown for the country.
By the way, whoever makes it to the Top 7 will be awarded a talent management contract where work opportunities in the Asian region can be had. To top it off, plastic surgery is part of the package, if need be.
Good luck, Czarina! 😉
