I always appreciate spending time with Miss Millenial Philippines 2017 (and Miss Kaogma 2017) Julia Gonowon. During my judging stint at the Kaogma Festival last Friday night, we had quality time together before and after the finals where she relinquished her crown in Camarines Sur. And I can easily tell that she is bound for bigger things in the pageantry world. For sure, we will see this sweet and charming 5’7.5” of a beauty doing one of the big leagues come 2019. After all, she has the right ingredients to shine even more.
Tonight, one of the twenty (20) gorgeous candidates above will be crowned Miss Kaogma 2018 at the Freedom Sports Complex in a big finals production that will seek to find the successor of Julia Gonowon. Hosts Rachel Peters and Robi Domingo will lead us through the proceedings, together with special guest Ian Veneracion.
Your blogger will serve as one of the judges alongside distinguished personalities in the pageant and entertainment industry.
Who will the lucky girl be?
Find out soon!
Coming soon: Miss Kaogma 2018 – the biggest beauty pageant in the Province of Camarines Sur which offers a hefty cash prize of P300,000.00 to the top winner. Julia Gonowon, the reigning Miss Kaogma, is also the reigning Miss Millenial Philippines. And CamSur Governor Migz Villafuerte – along with Miss Universe Philippines 2017 Rachel Peters – are leaving no stones unturned to make this year’s edition the biggest and grandest yet.
In line with this, your blogger has been invited to judge on May 25, with the likes of Bb. Pilipinas International 2017 Mariel de Leon and Bb. Pilipinas 2018 Finalist Sandra Lemonon also in the panel.
The lineup of candidates this year is made even brighter with the presence of two (2) Binibinis – Sigrid Grace Flores and Angelie Aubrey Asuncion. This could be a fight to the finish for both including the likes of Candy Vollinger and Jian Cayla Salazar.
Now since we just finished another Election Day nationwide, have you exercised your right to vote today? Both Migz and Rachel show proof that they did.
Watch out for my blog report about the finals of this pageant next week!
Julia Gonowon of Camarines Sur topped the strong competition and won for herself P500,000.00, a brand-new Mitsubishi Montero Sport and a house-and-lot from Bria Homes (this prize package makes the winnings of our national beauty queens pale in comparison, without a doubt).
Carina Cariño of La Union finished 1st Runner-Up, with Eleonora Valentina Laotenza of Aklan and Shiara Joy Dizon of Malabon claiming 2nd and 3rd Runner-Up placements, respectively. Dianne Lacayanga of Ilocos Norte was named Bayanihan Queen.
