The Beauty Pageant season of 2011 is going to heat up even more in just a month. Starting with the Bb. Pilipinas 2011 which will have its’ finals in early April, followed by the Miss Philippines-Earth before summer winds up. And then there is the newly put-up Miss World Philippines of Cory Quirino which should select its winner for Miss World around June or July. Mutya ng Pilipinas should also be in action at right about the same period. Thereafter, the beauty carnival moves to Sao Paolo, Brazil in August for Miss Universe 2011 – a big thing for this blog. The other international pageants will come in succession from September to December – Miss International 2011, Miss World 2011 and Miss Earth 2011. I’m not even mentioning the lesser known competitions like Miss Tourism International, Miss Supranational, Miss Global Teen and the like.
So you see, I have my hands full for the year. There’s quite a lot to watch out for. 😉
