If there is one candidate of Miss World Philippines 2012 considered one of the most qualified by true-blue pageant watchers, Queenierich Rehman should easily fit the bill. But the question in our minds is this. Will the crown fit her head, figuratively-speaking that is? Let’s count the ‘Miss World’ ways. Is she talented? Check. Having just co-shared the Miss Talent award with Loraine de Guzman, her beatboxing/vocal imitation skills are unique, albeit less lady-like in appearance. Is she sporty? Check. She spent her high school and college years playing basketball for Southville International School and Assumption College, respectively. And in doing so, she won Rookie of the Year and MVP awards as an excellent hoopster. Is she beautiful? Check. No lengthy explanations here needed, although being declared Miss Photogenic is proof positive of that. Is she sexy? Check. She did not win Best in Swimsuit during Bb. Pilipinas 2011 for nothing. Is she a beauty with a purpose? Well, Cory Quirino will take care of that since the organization takes care of Manila’s streetchildren and unwanted babies. So what else is left unchecked? Her communication skills? She passes this one creditably well.
So back to my original question. Will the crown fit Queenierich Rehman in more ways than one? I say yes. Let’s see if good fortune awaits her on June 24. She can always fly the skies as a Flight Attendant later on if being a beauty queen isn’t meant for her. 😉

During the Charity/Gala Night of Miss World Philippines 2012 held at Dusit Hotel Manila, Special Awards were handed out to deserving candidates. Of the several citations, worth noting are the major ones which include Miss Photogenic (Queenierich Rehman), Miss Talent (tie between Queenierich Rehman and Loraine de Guzman), Miss Friendship (Vanessa Ammann) and finally, Ms. Fashion Runway (Brenna Cassandra Gamboa) which carries an automatic semifinal seeding.
There were actually other Sponsor Awards given such as Miss World Traveler (Queenierich Rehman), Miss Laguna World (Vanessa Ammann), Miss Manny O Wines (Brenna Cassandra Gamboa) and Miss Prudential (Queenierich Rehman).
A sign of things to come maybe? Well, I don’t want to look into it that much, though. 😉
Last Fathers’ Day, while families were celebrating special lunches or dinners in honor of their respective patriarchs, the talent competition of Miss World Philippines 2012 was getting underway at Bellevue Hotel in Alabang. Since this is a fast-track segment, the winner will be announced and automatically seeded into the semifinals come June 24 Coronation Night. As such, every participant really gave their personal best in whatever skill or talent they can deliver. Below are some HD pictures of the ladies, courtesy of OPMB Worldwide’s Bruce Casanova.
