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?

At the Sapphire B Ballroom of Crowne Plaza Manila Galleria, a two-in-one Press Conference was hosted by the Miss World Philippines Organization. First was the homecoming for Miss Eco Philippines 2018 Maureen Montagne who successfully ended her mission in Cairo, Egypt when she placed 1st Runner-Up in a very close battle for Miss Eco International 2019. It was almost a back-to-back win for the country with Cynthia Thomalla being the outgoing international titleholder.
Maureen was pleased of her achievement abroad. For now, she plans to hang her pageant shoes in favor of a showbiz career. She will be shooting her first feature film soon, and is hoping that she will get a good hosting break on TV after.
The second focus of the Presscon was the formal introduction of Arnold Mercado as the new General Manager of the Miss World Philippines Organization. One of the former pillars of popular beauty camp “Aces & Queens”, he will now be in-charge of the annual Miss World Philippines competition as well as the upcoming Mr World 2019 to be hosted in the country starting late July with a finals date set for August 4. He will also take care of the promotion and appearances of the reigning Queens and Kings of the organization.
Best wishes to both Maureen and Arnold (now fondly called “Mama World” by everyone) in their future professional endeavors as part of the group headed by Arnold Vegafria.
