While the Miss World 2017 Head-to-Head Challenge that includes Miss Philippines Laura Lehmann and the members of Group 17 won’t be held until all sixteen teams ahead of them are completed, here are photos of her arrival in Sanya, China for the final leg of the competition which will lead to the much-awaited finals on November 18.
Don’t mind the excessive flowers that surround the heads and around the necks of the ladies as this is Sanya’s way of welcoming everyone.
With only Miss International and Miss World to focus on before the start of Miss Universe frenzy, I hope to get more updates from both Mariel and Laura from hereon now.

A gathering of past and present Miss World winners including Megan Young (3rd from left) in Sanya

We all know that Miss World 2013 Megan Young is now in Sanya, China to help host Miss World 2015 this coming Saturday, December 19. Being the professional that she is, our Queen made sure that she wrapped up all her taping schedules for the upcoming finale of her teleserye
“MariMar” on GMA-7 before finally departing for the pageant. Actually, she was supposed to finish only around this time, but with some adjustments, an earlier finish allowed her to take a few extra days to add up to her stay in the Chinese resort city.
And in Sanya, Megan was reunited with the reigning Rolene Strauss and her immediate predecessor Wenxia Yu. She also got the bonus of bonding with other past winners like Agbani Darego, Azra Akin and Ksenia Sukhinova.
Megan is having a fun time in Sanya. And we all know that she’ll do her job as one of the finals host perfectly well. 😉

Ni hao, Sanya!
The Miss World 2015 Contestant Profiles have been up for days now. You can get a more fresh update on the ladies competing for the blue crown on top of Rolene Strauss’ head. And in the 30-seconders, you will see how our representative encapsulated the more important things about herself.
Watch Hillarie’s turn below right after her image in the Mak Tumang evening gown that qualified her in the Top 30 for the Top Model Challenge. 🙂

Miss World 2014 Rolene Strauss
The Miss World Organization (MWO) couldn’t have picked a more qualified winner last year in Rolene Strauss. This South African lass has been continuously performing her duties as the reigning titleholder to a T. And now that she is leading the delegates of Miss World 2015 in almost all the pre-pageant events in China, there is the ingrained responsibility of becoming big sister to everyone. She is both warm and gracious. Her presence is commanding but still accessible.
I wonder who among this year’s batch is starting to get the halo effect from Julia Morley. We all know that the delegates are being keenly observed every single day. And whoever proves to have all the best qualities to fill in the shoes of Rolene will most likely shine all the way to December 19 when Miss World 2015 will be crowned. 🙂
Miss World is really jumping the gun on Miss Universe as the most ready and planned-in-advance beauty competition of the year. With the repeat hosting of Sanya, China, the local organizers already know how to handle the demands and complexities of mounting the pageant. And Julia Morley couldn’t be happier that she is back on familiar grounds. She trusts that the Chinese have already mastered the execution of all her demands to insure the success of this year’s finals. The only thing left to do could be the wait for the arrival of candidates come early November.
In the meantime, let’s watch the official promo video that Miss World Organization has uploaded to their YouTube channel.

Who to heavily promote Miss World 2015 first but to the host country itself
Miss World 2014 Rolene Strauss
Yesterday, the Miss World YouTube channel uploaded a promotional video of Miss World 2015 in Chinese. This only means that the Miss World Organization wants to hype the event to the host nation first to insure that their excitement starts rising up as early as now. And Julia Morley knows how to rally the Chinese support more than anyone else. After all, it has hosted her pageant several times in the past.
And don’t be surprised if Miss World 2014 Rolene Strauss makes another trip to Mainland China next month. Her appearances will boost the competition even more.
Watch the vid now.

Rolene will crown her successor in Sanya on December 19
Back to Sanya, Miss World 2015 will be.
A week before Christmas this year. December 19, to be exact. That’s when Miss World 2015 will be staged. And for the 6th time, the resort city of Sanya, China will play host to more than a hundred national representatives from all over the globe who will vie for the blue crown currently being worn by South Africa’s Rolene Strauss.
Alexandria Mills of the USA was the last to be crowned in Sanya, and Bb. Pilipinas World 2010 Czarina Gatbonton was our country’s unplaced rep then. Will the tide change this year? Or will Sanya continue to be a less giving host for Miss World Philippines? What do you think, dear readers? 😉
