There are two Cebuanas who grabbed crowns in Miss Universe Philippines | Bb. Pilipinas 2019. Aside from Gazini Ganados, the representative of Cebu – Samantha Ashley Lo – is the second biggest pride of the Queen City of the South in the competition. And she is one of those tagged as big spoilers just days before the Grand Coronation last Sunday night.
We already know how good a communicator Samantha is, and she was able to put it into good use not only in her public interviews but also during the Top 15 Q&A when PBA Basketball Player Christian Standhardinger asked about her best non-physical asset. Re-watch her 30-second freetalk during the prelims below when pageant followers started to include her in the list of strong contenders.
Nawatt in Venezuela
A Binibining Cebu Tourism titleholder back in 2017, Samantha has already had the chance to represent us internationally when she took part in Best Model of the World 2018 held in Ankara, Turkey last December. But that was a stint that focused more on her catwalk/modeling skills instead of the ability to spontaneously express herself. I trust that she will be able to maximize her full potentials once she sets foot in presently crisis-laden Venezuela for Miss Grand International 2019. On top of her spirit for travel and adventure, she should be able to blend well with the locals in the city of Caracas (which is a relatively unusual choice to be at the helm of international pageant hosting
). And get on the good side of the eccentric Nawatt Itsaragrisil (right photo
) in the process of doing so.
