This year wasn’t the best for Philippine pageantry internationally, but not the worst either. It’s middling around the average range and pushing higher than 2019 and significantly compared to 2020. Keep in mind that I included only the competitions that I blogged about.

If I missed anyone worth including/following, please reply in the comment section below. I’m just too happy that international pageantry has slowly stepped out of its lockdown shell. Hopefully, it will be so much better in 2022, omicron variant notwithstanding.
PS Samantha Bernardo’s 1st Runner-Up placement in MGI2020 should also be included above.
