Earlier in the day, a Press Conference was held at the St. Francis Shangri-la Place to formally announce the hosting of Miss Global 2016 in the country – the second consecutive time of doing so after the successful staging last year at Resorts World Manila.
Reigning Miss Global titleholder Jessica Peart of Australia flew to our shores and graced the event along with former Miss Global Philippines winners Candice Ramos and Catherine Almirante plus Miss Global Philippines 2016 Camille CJ Hirro and her court that includes Perlyn Ocampo, Sammie Anne Legaspi, Clarize Barrameda and Princess Garcia.

Pauline Sofia Laping for Miss Global 2016 hosting
This time around, Miss Global 2016 will be bigger and more exciting with the full support coming from the country’s Department of Touris and the Fashion Designers Association of the Philippines (FDAP). It is expected to welcome around 40-50 foreign delegates starting September 9, with the finals set for September 24 at the PICC Plenary Hall.
Host organizer Pauline Sofia Laping is encouraging everyone to give their full support to the hosting of the pageant in the country to make it a very successful one.
Here is part of the Press Release:
Miss Global Organization hopes to crown a deserving winner who possess (sic) the quality of an Empowering woman, that will embrace one’s culture and embodying the beauty within. She will serve as an effective Ambassador of Goodwill in promoting the advocacy of SENHOA FOUNDATION in helping victims of ANTI-HUMAN TRAFFICKING and also help our government in its efforts to promote Philippine Tourism.
From all us here at normannorman.com, we wish Miss Global 2016 the best in this year’s edition!

One of these 23 ladies will win Miss Global Philippines 2016 tomorrow night!
Tomorrow night, twenty-three beautiful ladies will compete for the Miss Global Philippines 2016 crown currently being held by Candice Ramos. And at the rate these contenders have performed the past month, it sure would be difficult for the judges to pick the ultimate winner. It could all boil down to that one final question or it could also be a mix of first impressions/latest impact altogether.
Be that as it may, my Top 10 selection includes Janelle Olafson, Perlyn Ocampo, Camille Hirro, Danica Ebrada, Clarize Barrameda, Kimberly Isla, Marcia Nicole Bautista, Krishia Antonio, Kristine Joy Cruz and Sammie Anne Legaspi. My feeling is that this group has really stepped up to the plate all throughout pre-pageant activities and more.
The ten ladies I am predicting as potential winners tomorrow night
One of these six will win tomorrow night
Of course, the list of ten would not last that many in the final tally. So I filtered the choices further to six potential winners. I know that practically everyone here could seal the deal with a good performance in the Q&A. Top of my head, though, I would give the edge to three – public speakers Camille Hirro and Janelle Olafson plus single mother Perlyn Ocampo. Individually, they can claim the crown on their bright merits. So from this point hereon, it is a matter of which one among them the judges and organizers took a solid shine on and never waivered in any segment.
For now, I congratulate all the candidates and organizers for a job well done. It sure ain’t easy seeing everything through till the end, but the rewards will make the journey a fulfilling one. 🙂
