For my next introductory feature on the Official Candidates of Mr & Miss Hannah’s World Tourism Philippines 2018, I am presenting to you the 12th pair of contenders from Talisay, Cebu and Makati City.
He is an ever-smiling student who is just in Grade 11 at the University of Cebu, and she is a pageant dreamer who has been doing a lot of castings and modeling jobs ever since she was 5.
Meet Kyle Dwight Sabinay #MrSmiley and Maria Frencheska Nueva #TheGoodDaughter.
The minute Kyle beams with his magnetic trademark smile, you know that everything will be alright. He has this youthful charm and lifting teen spirit that can drive away the blues and catch on with the never-ending good vibes that he projects. This guy from Talisay, Cebu knows his strengths and maximizes on them in the most effortless way possible.
“I’m a very approachable person. You can also call me as the guy who can cheer up anyone who’s feeling down. But more than just what I can offer on the outside, I can be a fierce challenger to every challenge coming my way and an optimistic dream chaser who wants to turn my goals into reality.”
Truth be told, there really is something about Kyle. During the Grand National Callback of Mr & Miss Hannah’s World Tourism Philippines 2018, he was literally a head-turning aspirant who made instant converts out of some guests/media attendees who were looking for potential candidates to support and hype about. I guess he will need to live up to the positive impression from this point onwards.
Kyle is here to do more than just smile. He is a competitor to the max!
If there was “The Good Son” on national TV, then why not #TheGoodDaughter in Mr & Miss Hannah’s World Tourism Philippines 2018? Cheska of Makati City fits the bill nicely.
“I can say with pride that I graduated just this year with honors as Bronze medalist with a Bachelor of Science degree in Hotel Restaurant Management. But it was also a struggle for me to reach that achievement because of my other plans in life. You see, even before graduating, I have been trying different levels of auditions since the age of 5 – casting for Little Miss Philippines, TV commercials, runways gigs, the Bench 30th Anniversary and more recently, a national pageant. I joined in and was fortunately named Miss Gobal Philippines 2017 runner up. I do all of this hoping to earn and save at the same time. I want to help support my family the quickest way I think I can. Good thing that it is also my way of finding my true passion in life.”
Cheska will face the Mr & Miss Hannah’s World Tourism Philippines 2018 with open arms and a brave heart. She is doing the competition for both family and personal dreams.
Miss Global Philippines 2017 Mary Ann Mungcal
Mary Ann Mungcal from Pampanga (the same province of outgoing titleholder Camille Hirro) was crowned Miss Global Philippines 2017 during the close of the finals held at the Newport Performing Arts Theater of Resorts World Manila. She will now set her sights on representing the country in the next edition of Miss Global 2016 later this year in a still undiclosed host country.
Earlier, Mungcal cornered a lion’s share of the special awards – including Best in Swimsuit and Long Gown – before slowly climbing to the top of the rankings. She fumbled during the Top 10 Q&A but redeemed herself fairly well during the Top 5 that sustained her pole position on the judges’ scoresheets.
Her court includes 1st Runner-Up Rowee Sasuluya, 2nd Runner-Up Jacqueline Mayoralgo, 3rd Runner-Up Mhaelen Patano and 4th Runner-Up Fina Galupa.
Congratulations to all the winners!
Tonight, two beauty pageant finals will unfold simultaneously.
First is the Miss Global Philippines 2017 at Resorts World Manila where Camille Cj Hirro will crown her successor among the 22 beautiful contenders below. See who will take home the victory at the Newport Performing Arts Theater.
Best of luck to all the ladies, but most especially to my favorites Jacqueline Mayoralgo, Mary Ann Mungcal, Charmaine Aller, Frencheska Frias Nueva and Christine Balaguer.
normannorman.com will be at the venue to cover with Joy Arguil and Joseph Gerard V. Jose.
And over at the PICC Plenary Hall at CCP Complex in Pasay City, the thirty (30) candidates of Miss Manila 2017 will try to outshine each other as they go onstage for the crowning of a new face for the city to succeed Cristelle Tolentino.
I have more than a few ladies here who I want to land on top, such as former Binibini 4 Maria Gail Tobes, Kristine Montes, Joanna Tolledo, Katrina Sese and Athena Catriz.
Who will be the lucky girl to win PhP1 Million Pesos in the end?
The search for Miss Global Philippines 2017 is now on
Miss Global Philippines 2016 Camille Hirro
For a three year-old national beauty competition, Miss Global Philippines
has started to find its niche in the country’s pageant landscape by being the only one of its kind that encourages single mothers to take part, aside from extending the age qualification to 28. These two unique features effectively widened its reach to all the potential candidates, including the ones who may have “overlooked” their chances of joining the likes of Bb. Pilipinas, Miss Philippines Earth and Miss World Philippines. What’s more, the opportunity to represent the flag internationally is also an exciting part of the whole process with the annual Miss Global that has particularly allowed reigning titleholder Camille “CJ” Hirro to strengthen her personal platform after placing 1st Runner-Up in the last edition held right here in Manila.
Pauline Sofia Laping of PSL Entertainment Production – who is also the CEO and National Pageant Director of Miss Global Philippines – is ready to make the 2017 search bigger and brighter. She wants the pageant to make a more commanding stand that would further attract the participation of smart and cause-oriented Filipinas to sign up and vie for the title.
Check out the qualifications for Miss Global Philippines 2017 above. If you fit in (or you know a qualified contestant), then get ready for the first screening scheduled on March 18 at West Avenue Suites in Quezon City.
CJ Hirro continues to have a beautifully significant reign so far
