Romellean Joy Pontino for Miss United Continents 2017
Ina Patricia Gita for Miss Globe International 2017
Gladys Louise Santos for Miss World Peace 2016
Cindy de Vera for Charity Queen International 2016
Last Wednesday night at the Tanghalang Pasigueño, five (5) ladies walked away with the crowns that represent the inaugural winners of Jewel of the Philippines 2016, the newest multi-title beauty pageant organized by John dela Vega.
Top winner is Natasha Angela Manuel of Cebu who was adjudged Jewel of the Philippines 2016 and will now be the host delegate for the first-ever Jewel of the World 2017 that will be held here in Manila. Her court includes Romellean Joy Pontino of Nueva Vizcaya who will be our representative in Miss United Continents 2017 (Jeslyn Santos will be the entry for 2016), Ina Patricia Gita of Bulacan for Miss Globe International 2017, Gladys Louise Santos of Valenzuela City for Miss World Peace 2016 and Cindy de Vera of Pangasinan for Charity Queen International 2016.
We have to give props for JDV in mounting this grand competition. It’s no joke going through the process of finalizing one up until the coronation night. What’s more, the bigger international pageant for next year is something that will really challenged him to the fullest. But I’m pretty sure he will deliver.
Congratulations to all the winners! May you all bring honor to the country! 🙂

Jewel of the Philippines 2016 will be aired on August 28 over GMA News TV
Tomorrow night at the Tanghalang Pasigueño, the lives of three ladies will change the minute they get crowned in the finals of Jewel of the Philippines 2016. This trio will represent the country in Jewel of the World, Miss World Peace and Miss Charity Queen International. And from the twenty-three lovely contenders, I made a short-list of my favorites to make it through.

The ladies in my upper tier are: Fel Sharae Banaybanay of Mandaluyong City, Inna Patricia Gita of Bulacan, Prexie Mae Balunggay of Tabuk City, Babyerna Liong of Tacloban and Meagan Vinasoy of Isabela. I feel strongly for these five delegates and would be happy to see three of them get the crowns at stake. My potential spoilers to the five are Novie Shane Leonerio of General Santos City and Cindy de Vera of Pangasinan.
Let’s see who will make it to the top among them. By the way, this inaugural edition may have only three titles being offered, but in 2017, the number will increase to five (5) with the official addition of Miss United Continents and Miss Globe International in the slate.
Congratulations John dela Vega and Orientscape Productions for staging this new multi-titled beauty competition. I’m sure the finals (which will be aired over at GMA News TV on August 28) will be a success! 🙂
