Maybel Perilla won Miss Golden Universe 2016 for the Philippines in Manaus, Brazil
We won Miss Universe last December via Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach. And just over the weekend, the crown of Miss Golden Universe 2016 was claimed by Maybel Perilla of the Philippines in Manaus, Brazil.
And just to sweeten things a bit, this win was complimented by the 1st Runner-Up finish of the country’s entry in the male division – J Daniel Verano.
Congratulations to MB Philippines Italy Organization which is responsibile for training and sending Maybel to the host city.

After safely arriving in Manaus, Brazil, Miss Golden Universe Philippines 2016 Maybel Perilla buckled down to business of competing for the title of Miss Golden Universe 2016. A welcome dinner (photo below) for all the candidates was hosted by the organizers at Intercity Premium Manaus – the official residence.
The morning after, it was swimwear photoshoot right away as Maybel donned her black-and-white swimsuit and flashed her beautiful face and sexiness to everyone in the hotel poolside.
I have a feeling our bet is really getting noticed by now. Keep it up, Maybel! 😉

Maybel Perilla will represent the Philippines in Miss Golden Universe 2016
As of (Word)press time, Miss Golden Universe Philippines 2016 Maybel Perilla may have already arrived in Manaus, Brazil where she will represent the country (plus the Filipino Community of Italy
) and compete to win the Miss Golden Universe 2016 title. This contest may not be as big and globally popular as the Miss Universe Pageant we all look up to every year. But still, it would be nice if we can throw in our support for our beautiful bet who happens to be a Rome-based full-blooded Pinay
who was crowned Miss Bachelorette Philippines Italy 2015.
Maybel’s mentors, the MB Philippines Organization, made sure that all her preparations were in order from the wardrobe to the national costume to the gowns, swimsuits and cocktail dresses. And by now, she is more than ready to face up to the challenge in an event that will be Latina-dominated and where she will easily stand out with her beautifully soft Asian features and regal bearing.

Best of luck in Manaus, Maybel! And may you bring home the honor of becoming the Philippines’ first Miss Golden Universe.
Go for the Gold! 😉
Maybel Perilla and Rick Kristoffer Palencia will represent the Philippines in Miss & Mister Golden Universe 2016
Manaus, Brazil in the state of Amazonas will be the setting for Miss & Mister Golden Universe 2016 from May 25-29. And for the mixed pageant, Gentlemen of the Philippines and Miss Bachelorette Philippines Italy have partnered to represent the country in the said event.
Honorary Gentleman Rick Kristoffer Palencia – who will now be titled Mr. Golden Universe Philippines 2016 – is set to travel deep into the South American nation with Miss Golden Universe Philippines 2016 Maybel Perilla (who won Miss Bachelorette Philippines Italy 2015) to try and win the top titles at stake.
This one will take place in Manaus, Brazil from May 25-29
Rick waited long and hard for this opportunity to wear the Philippine sash abroad. And his patience is now rewarded with a mission that will literally bring him close to nature, the Amazon Jungle that is. Maybel, on the other hand, was informed of her participation only a couple of days back and took the news with such glee.
Both Rick and Maybel are busy preparing for the competition. They will have separate send-offs middle of next month. The former will be feted here in Manila, while the latter is going to get hers in Rome, Italy.
Good luck in your missions, Maybel and Rick!
Best of luck in Manaus, Rick and Maybel! 😀
Her name is Maybel Perilla. And she is Miss Bachelorette 2015 Philippines/Italy.
Last November 29 at the Teatro Italia in Rome, Italy, Maybel Perilla was crowned Miss Bachelorette 2015 Philippines/Italy – a beauty competition participated in by several Italian ladies with Filipino descent. Looking at this young lady, though, you can easily tell that she is a full-blooded Pinay who just happens to be born and raised in the Eternal City.
Maybel is 20 years old, stands 5’7″ and is currently in her sophomore year studying at the College of Financial Marketing of Università La Sapienza in Rome. She traces her roots in Vigan, Ilocos Sur where her parents are from.
Initially, the plan for Maybel is to become the representative of the Filipino Community in Italy for Miss Republic of the Philippines 2016. But apart from this, there is also the possibility of getting appointed to represent the Philippines in an international pageant around middle of next year. Details of the latter cannot be made public just yet. Whichever of the two options will come to fruition, you will definitely know. 🙂

First off, let me give you a quick rundown of the winners of Miss Bachelorette 2015 which had its finals in Rome, Italy last weekend:
MAYBEL PERILLA, Miss Bachelorette 2015, 20 and representing Vigan City
M. FRANCESCA DOMINGO, First Runner Up, 20 and representing Tarlac City
CHIARA ARENAS, Second Runner Up, 20 and representing Tuy, Batangas
RACEL CANINO, Third Runner Up, 18, and representing Tarlac City
DOROTHY MEG REA, Fourth Runner Up, 19 and representing Davao City.
Miss Bachelorette 2015 is a Rome-based beauty pageant among Fil-Italian lasses who trace their respective parental roots in the Philippines. This early, the organizers are tapping Miss Republic of the Philippines to be a possible overseas mission for Maybel Perilla. There are also other options but everything is still under negotiation for now.
