Just as all of us were caught up with the marathon live stream of Miss International 2012, a smaller pageant was concluded last October 20 in Georgetown, Barbados when Lesa Gayle Wee Tom of Jamaica was crowned Miss Humanity International 2012. Our very own Ayelee Marie Dasalla was named 2nd Runner-Up and recipient of the People’s Choice Award. Other ladies in the Top 5 were the representatives of Guyana (1st Runner-Up), Netherlands (3rd Runner-Up) and Australia (4th Runner-Up). Kudos to Ayelee for matching the efforts of Czarina Gatbonton in the first edition last year! 😉
Fate always has something to keep Marie Molo Peter and Ayelee Marie Dasalla by each other’s side during beauty competitions. If you will recall, the two ladies were wearing numbers 11 and 12 – respectively – during Bb. Pilipinas 2012 last April. In the ongoing Miss Humanity International 2012 this time around, the two are also placed one after the other alphabetically with Fil-Norwegian Marie representing Norway and 100% Pinay Ayelee wearing the Philippine sash. It goes without saying that the duo bonded quite fast since they already shared time together in the past.
The question left to be answered is who between the two will come out more victorious in the finals of the Caribbean-based pageant come October 20? Well, the wait won’t be long. Let’s see if Norway or the Philippines or both will figure out well on Saturday night. 😉
Ayelee Marie Dasalla is all set to depart for Georgetown, Barbados to represent the country in Miss Humanity International 2012 where she will arrive this coming weekend. Prior to the formal send-off yesterday, John dela Vega’s team (including designer Poi Subijano) has made sure that she is 100% ready for the pageant in the Caribbean. From the time of her participation in Bb. Pilipinas last summer, she has lost more weight to come out sexier and more competitive. Our bet last year, Czarina Gatbonton, placed third. Will she place higher or possibly, bring home the crown itself? 🙂
The finals for Miss Humanity International 2012 is scheduled for October 20 at the Barbados Beach Club. In the meantime, show Ayelee some love and support by casting an online vote for her. Click HERE.
Good luck, girl! 😀
Just when you thought you’ve seen the last of Ayelee Marie Dasalla, think again. This Bataan lass – who participated in Bb Pilipinas 2012 as a replacement for disqualified candidate Maxine Medina – has been appointed Philippine representative to the Miss Humanity International 2012 to be held in Bridgetown, Barbados on October 20. Her predecessor, Czarina Gatbonton, placed 2nd Runner-Up in the premier edition last year. And since both ladies come from the beauty camp of John dela Vega, it goes without saying that she will receive tremendous tips and advices on how to handle the competition in the Caribbean.
Ayelee has a good chance of improving on our 2011 placement because she is more solidly prepared for the same. And being the determined lady that she is (remember her story of being nearly obese at one stage in her life?), I think she will make her presence felt in Bridgetown.
This beauty contest may be small compared to others, but it certainly has a big heart. Its objectives are clear-cut and less complicated. Let’s support Ayelee in her quest!
