Katarina Rodriguez could be the poster girl of inked beauty queens in the Philippines
This is one question that will potentially separate the open-minded readers from those with double standards on the matter.
Personally, I don’t mind seeing tattoos on our beauty queens. It makes them more sexy, aside from having minds of their own in terms of how to freely express themselves – be it on any part of their body or outside.
How about you?
How do you feel about tats on beautiful ladies who aspire to be Official Candidates in our national pageants this 2020?

My last teaser for the year 2019 isn’t much of a tease. It can be called an ultimate seduction – a one big final thrust, if you will.
While she may not be saying it outright, Katarina Rodriguez has been leaving hints here and there about the possibility of extending her colorful pageant career to the fullest. You simply need to read between the lines to sense what kind of future plans are being considered. And at her age of 27 now, time is not giving much of an extension beyond 2020 if she is serious about giving it one final go.
Her advocacies are already intact – being a Peace Hero for Teach Peace Build Peace Movement and a Children’s Right Activist (and Ambassador) for Save The Children. On top of that, she can think on her feet and express her meaningful thoughts well.
Having two national titles tucked under her belt, Katja should have moved on from pageantry by now. But the build up from Miss Intercontinental 2017 to Miss World 2018 is like assembling a totem pole where the topmost part is still missing an important piece. And if she pushes through with Miss Universe Philippines 2020, then it will be like the 3rd part of a trilogy where the last chapter will have all the exciting elements of a long story waiting for one big epilogue.
In less than two weeks from now, the reigning titleholders of Miss World Philippines 2018 will crown their successors along with the addition of at least two (2) new titles at stake.
For now, let’s feast our eyes on the quartet of Katarina Rodriguez, Maureen Montagne, Alyssa Muhlach Alvarez and Kimi Mugford in Dennis Santos creations as styled by Kenneth Ramil Yturralde and Karl Dioso.
After September 15, they are all ready to move on – Katarina with her charity causes, Maureen with plans of joining Miss World America for a second time, Alyssa with her showbiz career and Kimi with her studies in the US.
We already know by now that Miss World 2013 Megan Young will host tonight’s finals of Mr World 2019.
Two more beauties will join her to do all the color commentaries backstage:
Miss World Philippines 2018 Katarina Rodriguez and Miss Eco International 2018 1st Runner-Up Maureen Montagne.

With Bb. Pilipinas 2019 over and dine with – albeit delayed for this year – could Miss World Philippines 2019 be closing in on its tails? I bet it will be. With Miss Philippines Earth 2019 going into full swing mode this month and finished by next, the search for the successors of Katarina Rodriguez, Maureen Montagne, Alyssa Muhlach Alvarez and Kimi Mugford will be starting soon. I’m interested to find out who among our 2019 Binibinis will cross-over (or plot a return) to the accepting arms of the Miss World Philippines Organization.
Who do you think will make the move? Nicole Guerrero? Julia Saubier? Ilene de Vera? or Jessica Marasigan?

Congratulations to Miss World Philippines 2018 Katarina Rodriguez who is now the first Filipino Ambassador of Save the Children Foundation. Your good heart and influence will definitely go a long way in fulfilling the meaningful causes of the organization in improving the lives of children through better education, health care and economic opportunities – especially in helping #stopthewaronchildren.
