The reigning Miss Philippines Earth Janelle Lazo Tee – along with elemental court Ana Monica Tan, Chelsea Fernandez and Alex Dayrit plus Miss Earth Air 2018 Melanie Mader – were present during the contract signing with Lorraine Schuck and Peachy Veneracion for Carousel Productions.
During the Miss Philippines Earth 2019 Welcome Party held at the Carousel Mansion in Mandaluyong City, 38 of the 42 expected Official Candidates were introduced to all invited guests and sponsors – including members of the media – as they formally started their pre-pageant journey to this year’s crown.
The ladies – divided into regions of Luzon, Visayas, Mindanao and NCR (including reps of the Filipino Overseas Communities) – were asked to perform individual presentations that reflect the uniqueness of their respective origins in the country. They were judged accordingly, with the Mindanao contingent getting the solo recognition of being chosen as the best performers with a Gold Medal awarded on the spot.
From this day till the finals in July (details of date and venue to be finalized soon), they will be busy in various pre-pageant activities focused on environmental awareness and seminars, school and sponsor visits, a trip to El Nido in Palawan, medal-earning challenges and the unique preliminary judgings (beauty of face, beauty of form/figure and intelligence).
More on Miss Philippines Earth 2019 soon. In the meantime, here are photos taken by normannorman.com during the Welcome Party hosted by Berjayneth Chee and Ella Bautista.

And the 2018 edition promises to be record-breaking, as in more exciting – with fifty (50) Official Candidates – and far-reaching – with more Regional and Overseas Competitions to complement its biggest assembly of beautiful Filipinas ever. The gathering of all past titleholders and even joiners who did very well in other competitions will be something to look forward to.

Your blogger spoke to Mutya ng Pilipinas President Hemilyn Escudero-Tamayo (right photo with Joy & I) who is doubly enthusiastic about what’s in store for pageant fans and followers for 2018. She also shared thoughts about her inspirations in making the beauty pageant bigger than ever before.
“Madame Stella Marquez de Araneta of BPCI and Ms. Lorraine Schuck of Carousel Productions are my idols and I consider them pillars of the pageant industry. We should really be thanking them for keeping this industry alive as well as producing excellent winners. They deserve to be honored and looked up to after having earned many achievements inside and outside the country, while bringing Philippine pageantry to the highest level.”
Watch out for the 50th Edition of Mutya ng Pilipinas!

Yesterday afternoon, the final screening of Miss Philippines Earth 2017 went without a hitch at the Carousel Mansion in Mandaluyong City. The ladies who came have already been pre-selected before attending the all-important interview with the judging panel which included Lorraine Schuck, Peachy Veneracion and (newly-placed) Miss Philippines Air 2016 Shannon Bridgman.
There were a few familiar faces who showed up, like Jessica McEwen from Mutya ng Pilipinas, Karen Ibasco from Bb. Pilipinas and Iya Antonio from Miss Global Philippines, just as there are notably promising ladies in contention like Samantha Acosta, Odeza Duqueza (Bb. Aurora 2017) and Heike Marlis.
The selected applicants from this group will join the official entries from the different key cities and provinces in the Philippines plus the Filipino Commumities abroad to form the 2017 batch of Earth Warriors who will vie for the crown of reigning titleholder Loren Mar Artajos come June.
