Right after winning Reina Hispanoamericana 2017, Teresita “Win-Wyn” Marquez flew back to New York where she is currently spending a short vacation to rest, visit relatives/family friends and touch base with Fil-Am supporters who went all-out for her during the competition in Bolivia.
After Washington DC and Pennsylvania, she headed to Long Island where the topmost and bottom photos were taken (courtesy of my friend Felix Manuel). Along with brother Yeoj, she thanked the Filipinos who stayed by her side in support during her interview with the TFC Channel’s “Balitang America”.
Tomorrow, she will do a Grand Tour of Manhattan before finally packing her bags for her trip back to the Philippines on the night of the 11th. She will arrive in Manila mid-morning on Monday with the Victory Presscon tentatively scheduled for the afternoon.

Here are clear photos taken by the organizers on the victory of Reina Hispanoamericana 2017 Teresita “Win-Wyn” Marquez and her court composed of Virreina Akisha Albert of Curacao, Primera Finalista Lais Berte of Brazil, Segunda Finalista Victoria D’Ambrosio of Venezuela, Tercera Finalista Karla Berumen of Mexico and Quarta Finalista Katherine Añazgo of Bolivia.
Let us now see the graduation rise of the Reina Hispanoamericana brand globally the way Filipinos have helped jack up the popularity of Miss Supranational when Mutya Datul won in Belarus past 2013.
With only twenty-seven (27) Official Candidates for Reina Hispanoamericana 2017, you would think it’s easy to come up with Final Predictions for the Coronation Night in Sta. Cruz, Bolivia tomorrow night (Sunday morning in Manila). Well, it could be. But with twenty-four of them certified Latinas or fully-connected Hispanics and only three who are participating based on the Spanish links, the choices can get tricky in a way that the dominating forces may tend to take it all the way to the top.
My Top 10 – in alphabetical order according to countries represented – are:
Bolivia – Katherine Añazgo
Brazil – Lais Berte
Ecuador – Nicole Hidalgo
España – Jessica Gonzalez
Filipinas – Teresita Marquez
Panama – Carolina Castillo
Puerto Rico – Kristina Velez
Rep. Dominicana – Lowanny Tavarez
Uruguay – Magdalena Cohendet
Venezuela – Ma. Victoria D’Ambrosio
Going to my Top 5, I have three (3) good arguments why I am putting Miss Filipinas Teresita Marquez as my #1 pick to win the title.
1) Our bet is doing very well all-around and she is really keeping her consistency at an all-time high to make sure that her bid is not side-tracked by anyone else;
2) Making Miss Filipinas win as Reina Hispanoamericana 2017 will create wonders for the brand itself. It is high time for this title to zoom up in popularity considering its long existence and having a good social media and showbusiness influencer like Win-Wyn as spokesperson makes good business sense. Yes, her facility in Spanish is seriously wanting. But that is where the organizers (and 1st Runner-Up) will come in handy.
3) An Asian – and a Filipina at that – winner will make Reina Hispanoamericana a global pageant instead of just being tagged an exclusive regional search.
Teresita Marquez – normannorman.com’s pick to win Reina Hispanoamericana 2017
I would seriously like to have Magdalena Cohendet if Uruguay as her 1st Runner-Up after personally meeting this Latina during the 65th Miss Universe here in Manila. But if either Lais Berte of Brazil or host delegate Katherine Añazgo are given the slot, a Top 5 placement would sit well with me still.
Good luck to everyone in the finals, especially Miss Filipinas!
