And you thought Bb. Pilipinas Grand International 2017 Elizabeth Clenci would be left behind in the rush for new pre-arrival images from Raymond Saldaña? Not at all. In this blog entry are two of her latest from the ace photographer, fresh from her formal appointment last week as National Peace Ambassador at Malacañan Palace by no less than Philippine President Rody Duterte himself.
Liz is the first to wage beauty battle and her send-off is already penciled for an October 3 date either at Novotel Manila Araneta Center or Gateway Mall. And in the name of peace and stopping war, she is ready to face the competition in Vietnam with a bold game plan and ready answers for all questions thrown her way.
Is Nawatt ready for our bet?
Just the other day, Bb. Pilipinas Grand International 2017 Elizabeth Clenci was formally recognized as one of the National Peace Ambassadors during the Philippine President Rody Duterte-led 24th anniversary of the Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process (OPAPP) at the Heroes Hall in the Malacañan Palace on September 14, 2017.
The event will augur well for our Queen’s participation in Miss Grand International 2017 in Vietnam where the pageant mission is to stop war. Below is a video as she speaks about her new role for the country.

With the release of the latest photos Raymond Saldaña took of Bb. Pilipinas Grand International 2017 Elizabeth Clenci, the countdown starts for her date with Miss Grand International 2017 which will officially start happening in Vietnam less than two months from now. She will be the first among the Bb. Pilipinas 2017 Queens to wage beauty battle abroad, and it would be wise to start bringing in the noise for our bet right now.
While Liz won’t be going for a back-to-back, surpassing the 1st Runner-Up placement of her predecessor Nicole Cordoves is an equally daunting task because the next step to be able to do that is already winning the crown currently being held by Ariska Putri Pertiwi of Indonesia. Corollary to this, the tightening factor of another Asian getting the big win is an added weight on her shoulders.
But let’s leave it to our girl. I know she can be the silent killer supporters and believers have tagged her to be. 🙂
Not one but two Filipinos will host the finals of Miss Grand International 2017 which will take place at the Vinpearl Convention Center in Phú Quốc, Vietnam on October 25. And including our Bb. Pilipinas Grand International 2017 Elizabeth Clenci, there will be a trio of our countrymen onstage.
We already know about Miss Grand International 2016 1st Runner-Up Nicole Cordoves as the female host. But now, she will be joined by Filipino actor and singer Xian Lim to form a new tandem that will hopefully bring the big event to greater heights. The latter has been co-hosting Bb. Pilipinas so pageant owner Nawatt Itsaragrisil must have been convinced of his skills during the last edition which he personally attended at the Big Dome.
This will be Xian’s first big break in international pageant hosting so who knows what new doors of opportunites will open up for hin right after.
Below is the new teaser of Miss Grand International 2017.

Your thoughts about the Nicole Cordoves-Xian Lim hosting pair, dear readers?
Miss Grand International 2017 will be hosted in Vietnam this year with the finals slated to take place at the Vinpearl Phu Quoc Resort & Villas Convention Hall in the island of Phu Quoc. The interesting development in this edition is the confirmed hosting duties for last year’s First Runner-Up and our very own Bb. Pilipinas Nicole Cordoves who was present during the formal announcement held last month at the Pan Pacific Hotel in Hanoi.
Watch the teaser of the 2017 edition where Elizabeth Clenci will represent the Philippines, and who will most likely be the first among the Bb. Pilipinas 2017 Queens to wage her beauty battle overseas.

MGI Owner Nawatt Itsaragrisil sandwiched by Nicole Cordoves and Elizabeth Clenci
Last Sunday night, Miss Grand International owner Nawatt Itsaragrisil was a member of the audience inside Araneta Coliseum. He waited in bated breath as to who will be crowned Bb. Pilipinas Grand International 2017 to represent the Philippines in Miss Grand International 2017 scheduled to be hosted in Vietnam later this year.
And Nawatt must have been pleased with the choice of Elizabeth Clenci. He is known to have this fondness for sweet and intelligent ladies who can express themselves with a dash of spontaneity and consistent common sense. The musical talent is an added bonus. And the Fil-Aussie from Mandaue City nicely fits the bill, in my opinion.
Watch a video of her full performance including the Evening Gown presentation where she wore that very elegant Jaz Cerezo creation.

Elizabeth Clenci is now one of our Queens. It took her years (since 2011) to reach this point. And 2017 is the right time to make a pageant breakthrough. Congratulations! Your next destiny awaits in the Land of the Blue Dragon. 🙂
