I have had the chance to know a good chunk of the 43 Miss Earth Philippines 2018 Official Candidates the past week and a half. I must say that I am impressed with a lot of them. This national pageant has really found a good niche, and it shows in the quality of advocacy and communication skills in majority of the participants. So in alphabetical order now, I am sharing with you my Top 16 running favorites among them:
Berjayneth Chee – Balingasag, Misamis Oriental
Marla Alforque – Cebu City
We’Am Ahmed – Davao City
Lea Macapagal – Dinalupihan, Bataan
Zahra Bianca Saldua – Las Piñas City
Joana Cristine Dalangin – Lipa City
Flordeliz Mabao – Mandaluyong City
Dianne April Pangilinan – Mariveles, Bataan
Theressa Anne Mariano – Fil-Queensland
Silvia Celeste Cortesi – Fil-Rome
Leandrea Camille Batingan – San Jose del Monte City
Jean Nicole de Jesus – San Rafael, Bulacan
Naomie Hannah White – Fil-Sydney
Gabrielle Camille Basiano – Tacloban City
Lovely Lamptey – Taguig City
Noelle Uy-Fuentes Tuazon – Tangalan, Aklan
The #EarthWarriors have a lot more deciding pre-pageant activities in the coming weeks so the list could still change. And once the finals night on May 19 approaches in the homestretch, I will be more confident in ranking them.
More about Miss Earth Philippines 2018 soon!
“Dyosa ng Inang Kalikasan” (Goddess of Mother Earth) is the theme for Miss Philippines Earth 2018. And starting April 21, the Pre-Pageant events will begin with the Resort Wear Competition to be held at Laus Event Center in Pampanga. From there, a succession of carefully-planned activities will follow one after another leading to the May 10 Press Presentation at Diamond Hotel Manila and the May 19 Coronation Night to be held at the SM Mall of Asia Arena.
Here are some of this year’s Earth Warriors (including Naomie White of Fil-Comm Sydney on the left photo above) who will compete along with the other ladies to complete a roster of forty:
Hot on the heels of Bb. Pilipinas 2018 is Miss Philippines Earth 2018 which has already started to assemble its roster of Official Candidates for this year’s edition. There are a few familiar faces like Noelle Uy-Tuazon, Zarah Bianca Saldua and Jean Nicole de Jesus. The majority, though, are fresh faces in the national level who are taking their big leaps into the big pageant stage. Names like Berjayneth Chee, Liz Mabao, Brazzirie Yanson, Theressa Martinez, Gabrielle Camille Badiang and Naomie White don’t ring a bell yet. But they will soon!
Pre-pageant activities will go into full swing after the Lenten Season all the way to the Finals Night at the SM Mall of Asia Arena on May 19.
Here are some of the 2018 Earth Warriors for your initial consideration.
