Miss International 2013 Bea Rose Santiago speaks up on sexual harassment:
“Sexual Harassment IS REAL. NOT JUST IN PAGEANTS BUT EVERYWHERE!
I was molested when I was a child by a priest. He is still preaching somewhere in Masbate.
I was told “why are you born too late! or sus sayang ka Bea, kong napanganak ka lang mas maaga” By a pageant guy winner. I WAS 12YEARS OLD AND HE WAS 21.
I was once touched inappropriately by a well known businessman. This guy is a well known CEO of a big company (companies pa nga e) he even organized parties for girls who didnt win with his friends🤮 (I think “hoping” they stopped it)
The next time I met him I was a candidate and the organizers were there to see things thoroughly.
He couldn’t interact with us because the chairwoman was present and so as the chaperones. – still he was talking nonsense to us 🙄
– We were at the congress or senate? when a Queen was touched (her behind) while taking a photo. She immediately told me (with a help me look) so i put my hand covering her back protecting her from the “old well known perv” We just won an international pageant but still 😔
– i was working when I posed with a middle aged man (I had a feeling he was a perv) so I put both my hands behind me. He still managed to “accidentally swing her hand touching my behind”
It happens. No matter how careful you are. No matter how Big/ popular/ old/ “religious” a person is, HE CAN STILL BE A PERVERT.
I still feel guilty for not speaking up and file complaints or SLAP THE HELL OUT OF THEM. I guess speaking up now will help the future Queens.
– I am honestly really scared to speak up. I hope I wont regret this.”

You may need to watch the video clip above sideways, but it contains the scene from last night’s episode of ABS-CBN’s top-rating “La Luna Sangre” where Miss International 2013 Bea Rose Santiago appeared in an intimate “vampire” scene with actor Richard Gutierrez.
Below are quick shots from the same.
The Bb. Pilipinas 2013 winners produced a Miss Universe, a Miss International, a Miss Supranational, a Miss Universe runner-up and a Top 10 MTQI finisher!
Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach was the only winner in the Top 5 of Bb. Pilipinas 2013 who was not issued crown jewels being the sole runner-up. But it must have been written in the stars that she will eventually win and wear the best one after two years – the Miss Universe DIC art deco-inspired gems itself.
But there is more to Pia’s win that made the titleholders of Bb. Pilipinas Gold more special. It produced our 5th Miss International (Bea Rose Santiago), our first Miss Supranational (Mutya Johanna Datul) and a Miss Universe runner-up (Ariella Arida). In addition, this batch had the last recorded Philippine paricipant in Miss Tourism Queen International with Cindy Miranda placing in the Top 10. Tally-wise, this quintet edged out the equally-successful 2012 counterpart simply because it had more victories than top placements. It also eclipsed the reigning group in terms of collection.
Let us now reminisce on the crowning moments of Bb. Pilipinas Gold more than two years ago. 🙂

Miss International 2013 Bea Rose Santiago has successfully moved on from her reign. Now, she is being managed by Viva Artists Agency which handles a large number of celebrities in TV, Movies and Events, and has actually been booked for hosting gigs – something that she can do so well.
It’s about time that Bea Rose finds her own place in the sun. After all, her one-year stint as Miss International wasn’t the rosiest in terms of travel and appearance opportunities. It did open a couple of doors, but not enough in terms of sustaining the significance of her stay as such.
Best of luck in your newly-found career. This blogger wishes you all the best! 😀

Clowning around with Marc Nash
Miss International 2013 Bea Rose Santiago spent a few days in Arizona. And she literally enjoyed every minute of her sunny vacation in the Grand Canyon State (or Copper State if you will
). Together with Marc Nash, they were like cute teenagers on an extended date or tireless tourists taking advantage of being toured around the place with friends. She even had a picture taken with cacti (see below
Let’s watch out for her other state pit stops in the US. I’m quite sure she will upload more. 😉

Miss International 2013 Bea Rose Santiago presiding over the orientation of the Miss International 2014 contestants
Just hours back, the general orientation of the Miss International 2014 delegates took place inside a function hall of the Grand Prince Hotel New Takanawa. The activity was presided over by Miss International 2013 Bea Rose Santiago and some Japanese Officials. It was like a getting-to-know-you session as well for the ladies who have not been formally introduced to each other yet. This was followed by the Welcome Dinner wherein which the symbolic start of the competition was announced in front of all the contenders. Everyone was so amicable and pleasant. I daresay that the more aggressive ones are already starting to assess their challengers up close and personal.
Tomorrow, the battle continues. 😀
