With the last-minute entry of former Bb. Pilipinas 2019 candidate April May Short in Mutya Pilipinas 2019, can she be the game-changing contender the pageant is waiting for as potential grabber of the World Top Model Philippines 2019 title in the competition?
You see, the World Top Model finals that will be held in Monaco this coming December 14, 2019 strictly requires a representative who is at least 5’9” in height with modelesque proportions and a bright potential to do well in international modeling and possibly win the top contract of 200,000 Euros.
Everyone during the Press Presentation showed their approval of her inclusion. While there are at least three other candidates who can be considered for this title (Ysabel Napiza, Cyrille Payumo and Karla Lasquite), April has the experience and prior preparation that would make her a cinch to win this honor.
Click the video above and listen to Mutya Pilipinas President Cory Quirino as she speaks about the new direction the national competition is headed to and how the inclusion of the World Top Model Philippines title will transform the brand into a hybrid beauty pageant.
The interview took place during yesterday’s Press Conference at Ascott Makati.
Mutya Pilipinas has a new crown added to their titles at stake in 2019, with World Top Model Philippines as the latest. What makes this honor unique – coinciding with the acquisition of the franchise – is the newly-forged partnership with Professional Models Association of the Philippines (PMAP) who will help in training and preparing the first winner of Mutya Pilipinas- World Top Model Philippines for her international competition that will happen in Monte Carlo (in the Principality of Monaco) this coming December 14, 2019. Its inclusion has also transformed the national pageant into a hybrid competition as it welcomes aspiring models who wish to embark on a serious modeling career internationally.
Present during the contract signing are Mutya Pilipinas Chairman Fred Yuson, Mutya Pilipinas President Cory Quirino and PMAP President Anna Siddeco.
Effectively, Mutya Pilipinas 2019 (which is being re-branded without the “ng”) will have its four winners sent to Miss Asia-Pacific International, Miss Tourism International, Miss Tourism Queen of the Year International and World Top Model. The Mutya Pilipinas Overseas Communities and two runners-up will complete the honors that this year’s anticipated 40 Official Candidates will vie for.
Chairman Fred Yuson said that, “These are exciting times for Mutya Pilipinas so you can expect more positive changes in the future as it evolves.”
Watch out for the much-awaited 2019 edition of Mutya Pilipinas which will have its national finals at the MOA Arena on August 18.
