Our very own Miss Intercontinental 2018 Karen J. Gallman is into her 8th month of pregnancy. And soon – on or before Christmas this year – she will become a mother for the very first time. That, in my opinion, will be the most magical day of her life.
Stay strong and healthy, Karen! Our well wishes are always with you. 😘
Here are some photos from the Bachelorette Party thrown by close friends for future bride and former Miss Intercontinental Karen J. Gallman and held in Brisbane this weekend.
Karen will tie the knot with fiance Ian soon!

Hours away from the finals of Miss Intercontinental 2019, and the 2018 titleholder – our very own Karen J. Gallman – will crown her successor.
It has been a sweet reign for this beautiful soul who will explore other adventures as she sets sail for the next exciting chapters of her life (and love).
We are proud of you! 😘
Thank you bringing pride to the Philippines!

Amidst all the controversies (and unforgiveable embarrasments) with the initial days of SEA Games hosting in the country, the Opening Ceremony this coming Saturday, November 30, should be a source of pride for Filipinos. Aside from the showcase of World-Class singing talents, the muses of the participating countries in the region’s biennial sporting event will be eleven (11) of our international beauty titleholders, namely:
Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach for Team Philippines
Miss World 2013 Megan Young for Team Indonesia
Miss International 2005 Precious Lara Quigaman for Team Malaysia
Miss Earth 2014 Jamie Herrell for Team Singapore
Miss Earth 2015 Angelia Ong for Team Thailand
Miss Earth 2017 Karen Ibasco for Team Myanmar
Miss Intercontinental 2018 Karen Gallman for Team Brunei
Miss Eco International 2018 Cynthia Thomalla for Team Laos
Miss Asia Pacific International 2018 Sharifa Akeel for Team Vietnam
Miss Tourism International 2017 Jannie Alipo-on for Team East Timor
Miss Multinational 2017 Sophia Senoron for Team Cambodia
Let’s hope that things go on an upswing after the festive start.
The video below is part of the Añejo Passion Series on CNN Philippines. It features Miss Intercontinental 2018 Karen Gallman who will crown her successor in Egypt less than a week before Christmas this year.
Karen spent the last week in Galle, Sri Lanka. Being an avid traveler, she is enjoying all the country-hopping benefits that come with the title.

This batch produced a Miss Universe in Catriona Gray, a Miss Intercontinental in Karen Gallman, and a near-win as 1st Runner-Up in Miss International in Ahtisa Manalo. We can also add a Top 10 Miss Supranational finish for Jehza Huelar and a Top 15 placement in The Miss Globe for Michele Gumabao. It saddens me, though, that Eva Patalinjug was questionably snubbed in Miss Grand International.
At any rate, what an impressive score card for this group of titleholders!
Below is the interview made by Rappler with Miss Intercontinental 2018 Karen Gallman as conducted by my friend and colleague Voltaire Tayag.
Finally! The Philippines wins its first Miss Intercontinental crown!
