The 30 lovely hopefuls of Mutya ng Pilipinas 2014
Uncooperative weather? No problem. Have the Press Presentation indoors so no amount of rain can stop the ladies from putting their best foot forward for the media representatives who were just too happy to see all thirty of them parade in red two-piece swimwears.
Honestly, this has got to be one of the best batch of Mutya ng Pilipinas candidates in recent memory. It’s a pity only one of them will eventually wear the top crown and represent the country in the Miss Tourism International 2014 to be held in Kuala Lumpur on New Year’s Eve. I wish the organizers can close a deal for a new franchise so that another girl will be given the chance to wear the Philippine sash abroad.
As expected, the likes of Patrizia Bosco, Glennifer Perido and Cristine Racel stood out. But they have to be closely on guard because there are quite a number of stellar standouts who can also lay claim to the throne just as intensely. There’s Dorina Losenada Doerr from Heidelberg but representing Tagbilaran City. The Scandinavian rep, Britt Rekkedal, is also a strong possibility, just as the lady from Iloilo City, Froilene Villanueva. And let’s not forget other stunning bets like Jackielyn Dulay from Nueva Ecija, Kim Fyfe from Australia, Cheryl Chen from Tarlac and Anna Margarette Bascon from Lapu-Lapu City.
Despite the inclement weather, the Mutya ng Pilipinas 2014 candidates delivered.
All in all, there are no slim pickings in this year’s roster. I hope that the best of the best will eventually win!

All roads lead to the Mutya ng Pilipinas 2014 Press Presentation at Hotel H2O today.
Today, the Press Presentation of Mutya ng Pilipinas 2014 will be hosted by Hotel H2O at Manila Ocean Park. The Official Candidates will be formally introduced to various media and online representatives. This is where the real competition starts as early favorites will start getting their due attention and be hand-picked by the photographers for potential winning chances.
Last year’s winners, Miss Tourism International 2013 Angeli Dione Gomez and Koreen Medina (who became the last Mutya entry to Miss Intercontinental and placed 4th abroad) will be around to usher in the current crop of contenders.
Stay tuned for photos from the event. 😉
Starting today, all the regional and overseas candidates will arrive in Manila to join the NCR entries to begin their Mutya ng Pilipinas 2014 journey. While the past 48 hours or so have been marred by the stinging effects of Typhoon Glenda, everyone needs to move on and get back on track. The pre-pageant activities have been finalized and compared to recent editions, this year has actually been met with a little more excitement and anticipation.
This early, I have a feeling one of the delegates from abroad could take it all the way and succeed Angeli Dione Gomez as the country’s representative to Miss Tourism International 2014 in Malaysia. But will the likes of Glennifer Perido and Cristine Cheeny Racel allow that to happen without giving a stiff fight? And will Koreen Medina wear a sash that could possibly hint on a newly-acquired pageant franchise if ever?
Let’s see what new developments Mutya ng Pilipinas has in store for all of us to witness. 🙂
