Miss Philippines Fire 2014 Ma. Paula Bianca Paz (Photo credit: Melvin Sia)
Placing in the Top 5 is better than none
When Ma. Paula Bianca Paz was crowned Miss Philippines Fire 2014 last Sunday night, many of the online comments kidded about her getting another 3rd Runner-Up placement after two editions of Miss World Philippines with the same rank. I don’t see anything ghastly about the whole thing. I believe that it’s better to have made it to the magic circle than not to have made it at all. And besides, that is where the risk of re-joining enters the picture, just as the presence of younger competitors who are just hungry for the top crown.
Bianca knew right from the start that Jamie Herrell was a fierce opponent, and that she needed triple time to even eclipse her in the final rounds. She could have managed to get Air or Water, but two other ladies (Diane Querrer and Kim Covert) were deemed better in the Q&A.
Back to the drawing boards, where will she head to next? For now, I think it would be for her best interest (and her camp) to fulfill the year-long responsibilities as the element of Fire first. The clock may be ticking faster – age-wise – but there’s no other option that will serve her better at this juncture. 😉
The two tallest earth warriors in MPE2014
Who doesn’t love a statuesque beauty contestant, moreso if they stand 5’11”?
Kim Covert of Dumaguete City and Mary Anne Ross Misa of Makati City are the two glamazons of Miss Philippines Earth 2014. They possess such enviable height measurements, that dwarfing shorter co-candidates is inevitable.
The good thing is that, more than being tall, they have other qualities that could convince the organizers of their qualifications for the title. Watch their eco-videos below.

So what say you, dear readers? Do Kim and Ross have what it takes to be the next MPE? 🙂
Three interesting finds of Miss Philippines Earth 2014
19 Year-old Kim Covert, 25 year-old Jennifer Hunt and 20 year-old Sarah Theresa Stewart are three interesting mixed-race beauties vying for Miss Philippines Earth 2014.

Let’s see if these ladies have what it takes to upend the more experienced pageant joiners. They have their objectives cut out like a complex jigsaw puzzle piece looking on where to fit themselves nicely.
Good luck in the competition! 🙂
