For the past two days, I’ve been constantly asking the bigwigs of Carousel Productions about their rumored plans of coming up with another first for Miss Philippines Earth 2020. You will remember the noise made when they started the Beauty of Figure Preliminary Judging before where all the candidates wore veils or oversized hats to cover their faces and direct the focus on their individual shapeliness (or lack thereof).
This year, they will be doing a national finals unprecedented in the history of pageants in the Philippines – it will totally be web-based. I have chatted with both Lorraine Schuck and Peachy Veneracion about the possible setup of such. The details are still being ironed out but their individual replies were:
Lorraine Schuck: “Hi Norman, sequence of the show is almost the same naman as our previous shows. I’ll let you know pag nabuo na namin kung pano ma implement. Thanks and keep safe.“
Peachy Veneracion: “…more or less (the) candidates will send us videos taken from their own homes for the pre judging segments, beauty of face, figure and poise, intelligence. Surprise! First to be done! Will keep you updated.”
While the advantages and several disadvantages have started brewing inside my head, I will patiently wait for the final structure of the online pageant itself. By then, I will have a better assessment of its feasibility. But you can already imagine what’s going to happen, right dear readers?
For now, my only concern would be to insure that each Eco Angel will be given a fair shot for the titles at stake.
