Photos from the Sendoff Press Conference held at Novotel Manila Araneta Center in honor of #MissEcoPhilippines Maureen Montagne who will represent the country in Miss Eco International to be held in Cairo, Egypt from March 12-29.
Her fellow Queens – Miss World Philippines Katarina Rodriguez, Reina Hispanoamericana Filipinas Alyssa Muhlach Alvarez and Miss Multinational Philippines Kimi Mugford- and National Director Arnold Vegafria were around to give their moral support and well-wishes to our competing rep.
Best of luck, Mo! And go for the back-to-back win!
Yesterday was her official sendoff presided by National Director Arnold Vegafria of the Miss World Philippines Organization.
And today, she is scheduled to depart for New Delhi, India to represent the country in Miss Multinational 2018/2019.
Miss Multinational Philippines 2018 Kimi Mugford is looking at scoring a back-to-back win in the competition with Sophia Senoron being the reigning titleholder.
Kimi will be wearing a Cary Santiago number for the finals plus a Patrick Starr creation for her National Costume (inspired by the Province of Benguet).
This articulate young lady of 18 admits that her training was tough, but committed her 100% to everything. Gone are her hockey-playing tomboyish ways back in Ontario. In place now is a transformed lady who has so much pride in wearing the Philippine sash abroad.
Best of luck in the journey and do us proud, Kimi!
The first time I watched the full introductory video of Reina Hispanoamericana Filipinas 2018 Alyssa Muhlach Alvarez for Reina Hispanoamericana 2018 during the sendoff, I started getting goosebumps all over my arms.
Time for you to watch the clip (filmed inside Patio Victoria Intramuros) now to appreciate our bet even more!

The candidates mentioned above will be joined by the ones from the provinces and those selected through a special process to complete the list of official candidates. The press presentation of the contest will happen on Tuesday at Maxim’s in Resorts World Manila.
Among the announced contenders, it would be interesting to note the entry of crossover titleholders like Mister Philippines 2017 Denver Hernandez, Mister Grand Philippines 2017 Joshua Reginald Banatin and former winners of Mister United Continents and Mr Republic of the Philippines Ricardo de Jesus and Wilfred Placencia, respectively.
This early, though, the favorite of many is Fil-Italian Marco Poli who at 6’3” is the tallest and the one closest to the Mr World peg of Julia Morley.
More about this national male pageant soon!
Earlier in the day, the Miss World Philippines Organization conducted its screening of candidates for Mr. World Philippines 2018 at the House Manila. The good-looking (and nicely desirable) Filipino aspirants trooped to the venue where they were assessed by a panel headed by Miss World Philippines 2017 Laura Lehmann amd Miss Eco International 2018 Cynthia Thomalla.
There is a good assortment of applicants who came – models, professionals, students, showbiz upstarts and previous pageant winners.
It’s still too early to tell how the actual competition will unravel for #MrWorldPhilippines2018, but the two aspirants who really stood out today have something in common between the two of them – Italy.
Marco Poli – Fil-Italian who at 6’3” is the tallest enlister today. He has a quiet charm all his own. But once he speaks, one can sense the no-nonsense quality of his answers. He is also one mean chef in the kitchen.
Former Mister Philippines titleholder Denver Hernandez – a full-blooded Filipino raised in Italy who is a force onstage and off because of his very masculine appeal, much like a discerning brute who mixes Pinoy suave with Italian machismo. He represented the country in the Dominican Republic during Men Universe Model 2017.
Let’s see if these two guys can sustain the marked impressions or allow the other comers to get in the way of getting closer to the titles at stake. They are shoo-ins to become Official Candidates, after all.
The search is ON!
Miss World Philippines Organization is looking for the first Mister World Philippines under the new management and the next Miss World – Philippines!
This year, the twin pageants are getting bolder as they bring you Mister World Philippines live at the Newport Performing Arts Theatre in @resortsworldmanila on September 15, 2018 and the Miss World Philippines at the SM MOA Arena on October 7, 2018!
Other titles at stake are Mr. Supranational Philippines, Mr. Eco International Philippines, Reina Hispanoamericana Filipinas, Miss Eco Philippines and Miss Multinational Philippines!
Deadline for submission of entry is on August 10, 2018. Successful applicants will be invited to screen in person a week after to select the official candidates this year.
See you all there as we select our representatives who will proudly wear the Philippine sash ❤️🤴🏻👸🏻🇵🇭
Mister Supranational has a new Philippine Franchise Holder, and he is none other than Arnold Vegafria of Miss World Philippines Organization.
This addition effectively ups the titles at stake for Mr World Philippines to three, including Mister World and Mr Eco International. Including the two runners-up, the new male national pageant will have a magic circle of five (5) winners.
