There are fifty (50) Official Candidates in the 50th Mutya ng Pilipinas. And to stand out in this large group of assembled beautiful ladies may seem to be a tall order for some. The pageant’s niche is a truly beautiful face. But to match that with brains and wit that somehow take half the place of the “X” factor quality we all are looking for, then the field gets narrowed to a more manageable number that serves the purpose of coming up with a more confident assessment of the contenders.
One such beauty for serious consideration is 23 year-old Pauline Amelinckx, Mutya ng Bohol for sash purposes and looking so gorgeous in the “Something Gold” photoshoot in this entry. This half-Filipina, half-Belgian was raised in the province and a well-loved native in the eyes of all Boholanos. Prior to winning the title of Miss Bohol last year, she was a Tourism Officer in the Municipality of Tubigon. And she is tailor-made for tasks that involve promotion of the tourist spots beyond Chocolate Hills and the Tarsiers. She articulates herself well, and in an engaging manner at that.

Personally, your blogger has already spent time talking to Pauline and she is more than just a sweet lady to converse with. Her heart is in the right place and the kindness/sincerity in her overall disposition can be felt in an instant. It will only take a short time before people in the national pageant will appreciate her true beauty, inside and out.
In the upcoming Press Presentation of the 50th Mutya ng Pilipinas this September 3, I trust Pauline to be one of those who will catch the attention of many. She is a Mutya not just to serve a personal goal of winning a good crown, but also to give back pride to the Province of Bohol which has supported her every step of the way.
Wynonah Buot is another Cebuana in the Aces & Queens 2018 roster for Bb. Pilipinas 2018. And this professional model is really looking 101% ready for the final screening of the nationals later in the day. I have seen her both in motion and up close (and personal) during the Presentation Show. And the wow factor is definitely oozing from this lady. Let us give her the floor now for a more detailed introduction of herself.
“My full name is Wynonah Van Joy C. Buot. I’m 24 years old. Born in Cebu and raised in Saudi Arabia. My family migrated when I was 5 and I finished elementary and high school there. I went back to Cebu to study for college. I took up BA Mass Communication at the University of the Philippines Cebu (UP Cebu) and graduated Cum Laude last 2014. At a very young age, I was already groomed by my parents – especially my mom – to be an achiever. I graduated Valedictorian in elementary and Salutatorian in high school. I was a hall of famer in declamation and oration — joined school, interschool and even regional competitions. I would also join quiz bees and spelling bees back then. I ran as President for the student body organization (and won) and became the editor in chief of our school newsletter. In UP, I also ran as chairperson of the student council but unfortunately lost. I was part of a socio-political organization and joined Miss UP Cebu 2012 during my sophomore year (and won). I’ve been a model for 5 years now. I joined Miss Cebu 2015 at the age of 21 and won the title as well. I’ve been hosting events since then. After Miss Cebu, I landed my first ever legit job as executive assistant to Kenneth Cobonpue. I even assumed other roles such as business development officer, administration assistant and sales associate. Sadly, I had to resign from my current post to pursue Bb. Pilipinas. At present, I am being trained by Aces & Queens. I stand 5’7.5” and measure 34-24-36.

Gorgeous Jehza Huelar models for Mikee Andrei and Don Cristobal
Everyone knows that – before becoming a Binibini and clinching Bb. Pilipinas 2016 2nd Runner-Up – Jehza Huelar is already an established fashion and photographic model in Davao City. This is the job that she loves doing the most and it also helped her earn while studying at the Ateneo de Davao University.
Jehza may have already graduated from college, but she still keeps coming for more modeling assignments. In this blog post, you can see her allure wearing creations by Don Cristobal below:

Of course, Jehza is shuttling back and forth between Manila and Davao to fulfill her duties as 2nd Runner-Up of our Queens. While the schedules are not as tight, she loves the fact that things are falling in the right places.
Remain beautiful as always, my dear Jehza! 🙂
