The results of tomorrow night’s Finals and Coronation of Miss Philippines Earth 2023 is looking more and more like a foregone conclusion by the day. Call it like a repeat of Miss World Philippines 2016 and Binibining Pilipinas 2018 when Catriona Gray dominated both national pageants and comfortably walked away with the crown. This time, Yllana Marie Aduana of Siniloan, Laguna is expected by almost everyone to bag the title. And come hell or high water, she will not allow anyone to pull the win from right under her nose.
That is the beautifully difficult situation the Lagunense is facing right now. Being the most experienced, well-prepared and well-trained among the 29 candidates, acing every segment of the competition should be a breeze. Not unless two of her closest pursuers spoil the anticipated victory. Keep an eye on Kerri Reilly of Mangatarem, Pangasinan and Sha’uri Livori of Fil-Comm Melbourne. They will not make things easy for Yana.
