It’s no secret that I am fond of Fahsai Paweensuda Drouin, the Thai-Canadian beauty who placed 2nd Runner-Up during Miss Universe Thailand 2017 and was chosen as Thailand’s representative to Miss Earth that same year. Because of her trip to the Philippines for the international competition, she started a relationship with Filipino pageant fans that led to succeeding visits to the country especially during the heydays of Mr & Miss Hannah’s Ecotourism and Mr & Miss Hannah’s World Tourism Philippines where she started a friendship with now Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray.
Inspired by Cat and her throng of supporters in Thailand, she is now ready to embark on a new journey in pageantry via Miss Universe Thailand 2019 which is now under new management – TPN.
Watch her screening video and how she impressed the judges to be able to get a Golden Tiara – an automatic pass to the Top 60 which makes her an Official Candidate.
Here are the winners of last night’s big event at the Newport Performing Arts Theater of Resorts World Manila:
Mr and Miss Hannah’s World Tourism Philippines 2018:
George Reylor de Lumen of Marikina City and Nicole Miñano of Caloocan City
Mr & Miss Hannah’s Ecotourism Philippines:
Christopher Joshua Ibañez of Tagaytay City and Juvel Mangubat Ducay of Bantayan Island, Cebu
Mr & Miss Hannah’s Tourism Ambassador:
Gerome Bongco of Quezon City and Kylah Sanchez of Liloan, Cebu
Nicole will now represent the country in the inaugural edition of Miss Hannah’s World Tourism which will be held come September, while George will also get the chance to do an international male competition to be announced soon and which should take place in the first quarter of 2019.
Judges include Miss Universe Philippines 2018 Catriona Gray, Miss Thailand Earth 2017 Paweensuda Drouin, Peachy Veneracion of Miss Earth and Miss Earth Philippines, Hemilyn Escudero-Tamayo of Mutya ng Pilipinas, basketball star Ricci Rivero and Col. Ricardo L. Nolasco Jr. among others.
Miss Universe Philippines 2017 Rachel Peters and TV personality Robi Domingo hosted the finals, with Miss Global Philippines 2016 CJ Hirro as commentator.
Welcoming back Miss Thailand Earth 2017 Paweensuda “Fahsai” Drouin gave a most refreshing touch to our hectic days and nights preparing for the Grand Coronation Night of Mr and Miss Hannah’s World Tourism Philippines 2018 tomorrow at the Resorts World Manila. The minute she stepped out of the arrival area at NAIA Terminal 2, we hugged and talked to each other like old friends all the way to dinner where the big group enjoyed her beautiful queenly presence. Here is a clip of her interview with ABS-CBN’s Mario Dumaual, alongside Col. Ricardo L. Nolasco Jr of Hannah’s Beach Resort and Convention Center. Here, she answered the question about the possibility of re-joining Miss Thailand Universe.
Today, Fahsai and her Road Manager Natee will be toured around Tagaytay City and Taal Volcano. She is looking forward to this tour which she missed doing during her first visit last year. And tomorrow night, she is excited about meeting Miss Universe Philippines 2018 Catriona Gray for the second time. Their first encounter was when the latter sat as one of the judges during her selection as Miss Earth Hannah’s 2017.
More on her soon!

She will be a judge in Saturday night’s Grand Coronation Night of Mr and Miss Hannah’s World Tourism Philippines 2018. Afterwards, she will make her second trip to Hannah’s Beach Resort & Convention Center in Pagudpud for a well-deserved vacation in the #CrownJewelOfTheNorth.
See you soon!
