During last Friday’s pre-judging and finals of Miss Kaogma 2018 at Villa del Rey in CWC and the Freedom Sports Complex in Pili, Camarines Sur, one candidate really wowed all the judges the minute she presented herself. She is only 17 years old, stands 5’8” and has Filipino-Indian ethnicity. Her name is Rheema Alfonso Adakkoden, the newly-crowned successor of Julia Gonowon and is also the recipient of the title of Miss Millenial Camarines Sur.
Truth be told, the strong front-runners – like former Binibinis Sigrid Grace Flores and Angelie Aubrey Asuncion – had to play catch-up with the dusky beauty from start to finish and had to settle with being named Miss Kaogma Tourism and 1st Runner-Up, respectively.
In a year or two from now, you will definitely see Rheema joining the national pageants. And with more training and polish, she will definitely be one of the new Darlings in pageantry in time.
Let me take this opportunity to thank Camsur Governor Migz Villafuerte and Miss Universe Philippines 2017 Rachel Peters for the invite and the super warm accommodation at CWC. Looking forward to the 2019 edition!
Tonight, one of the twenty (20) gorgeous candidates above will be crowned Miss Kaogma 2018 at the Freedom Sports Complex in a big finals production that will seek to find the successor of Julia Gonowon. Hosts Rachel Peters and Robi Domingo will lead us through the proceedings, together with special guest Ian Veneracion.
Your blogger will serve as one of the judges alongside distinguished personalities in the pageant and entertainment industry.
Who will the lucky girl be?
Find out soon!
Coming soon: Miss Kaogma 2018 – the biggest beauty pageant in the Province of Camarines Sur which offers a hefty cash prize of P300,000.00 to the top winner. Julia Gonowon, the reigning Miss Kaogma, is also the reigning Miss Millenial Philippines. And CamSur Governor Migz Villafuerte – along with Miss Universe Philippines 2017 Rachel Peters – are leaving no stones unturned to make this year’s edition the biggest and grandest yet.
In line with this, your blogger has been invited to judge on May 25, with the likes of Bb. Pilipinas International 2017 Mariel de Leon and Bb. Pilipinas 2018 Finalist Sandra Lemonon also in the panel.
The lineup of candidates this year is made even brighter with the presence of two (2) Binibinis – Sigrid Grace Flores and Angelie Aubrey Asuncion. This could be a fight to the finish for both including the likes of Candy Vollinger and Jian Cayla Salazar.
Now since we just finished another Election Day nationwide, have you exercised your right to vote today? Both Migz and Rachel show proof that they did.
Watch out for my blog report about the finals of this pageant next week!
