Now that the host cities, competition dates and finals are being announced, our Bb. Pilipinas 2018 Queens are getting clarity on the respective timelines they will observe for their missions. Take for example Jehza Huelar who will be only one of two Europe-bound titleholders among them. She is set to travel to Krynica-Zdrój, Poland to represent the country in the 10th Anniversary of Miss Supranational which is anticipated to be a lot more momentous than all previous editions combined because of the milestone the organizers will be observing.
Jehza is getting all the training and support she can get to deliver a presentation in Poland that we still haven’t seen before. And knowing the kind of “performer” peg that the organizers are looking for in their candidates and winners, she will – if absolutely required – turn 180 degrees in her overall aura and disposition for the competition. As of now, her stylists (like Francis Chee and Vhee Co) are doing a good job of slowly transforming this beautiful Dabawenya into a more fiery miss.
Wait till you see the new version of Jehza Huelar within the next three months before leaving for her assignment abroad.
Bb. Pilipinas International 2017 Maria Angelica De Leon is looking forward to the month of July where something exciting awaits!
Watch out for our Queen Mariel soon!

There was queenly presence alright at the World Plaza in BGC yesterday during the formal unveiling of the first ever PLDT-Smart store – a one-stop digital hub and converged store which caters to customers from PLDT Group’s three flagship brands: PLDT, Smart and Cignal.
All the reigning Bb. Pilipinas 2018 titleholders – Catriona Gray, Ma Ahtisa Manalo, Jehza Huelar, Eva Patalinjug, Karen Gallman and Michele Gumabao – plus Miss World Philippines 2017 Laura Lehmann were present to check out the opening, as well as try out some of the services on offer.
Below are more photos from the event.
As early as the 4th Quarter of 2017, talks are already spreading that Gerhard Von Lipinski – CEO and Producer of the Miss Supranational Pageant – is seriously eyeing the hosting of the 2018 edition in our shores – the Queen City of the South to be exact. Early negotiations may have already been made, but nothing is set in stone as of yet.
If we do the math, the logistics of the entire hosting and production will be massive. Just think of bringing in both Miss Supranational and Mister Supranational in, and the cost will be almost double. And it’s no joke making a serious commitment to take charge of everything from a host country’s perspective.
Reigning Miss and Mister Supranational titleholders Jenny Kim and Gabriel Correa
Now if we look from the angle of our representative’s chances of winning a 2nd Miss Supranational crown, then Jehza Huelar won’t stand a significant favor of doing so if she was to be a host delegate. Aside from another Asian (Jenny Kim of Korea) being the reigning titleholder, I am inclined to think that the pageant owners won’t sit well with the thought of having the host country as her successor. 1st Runner-Up at best. Besides, Miss Supranational has definitely changed from the time Mutya Datul won in Belarus. It has grown more profitable and familiar so the judgment calls have become more relatively “layered”, so to speak. We can’t deny the fact that it has already benefitted much in terms of popularity when a Filipina became the first Asian to win the crown. So the running cycle could still be more distant from “reaching full circle”.
If you ask me, I’d rather see Jehza as a traveling candidate this year so that she can have a more enriching reign, regardless of where the 10th Edition will be held. Now if my considerations for a Cebu hosting are proven wrong and Gerhard ends up doing business with another country – or going back to Poland for that matter – then the fate of our bet might also turn out the same. 1st Runner-Up or Top 5 at best. Just a cut better than what Chanel Olive Thomas achieved last year.
How about you, dear readers? Please share your inputs.
