After all the brouhaha, the celebrity and super-goddess Megan Young representing the city of Olongapo was proclaimed the winner of Miss World Philippines 2013 tonight at the Grand Ballroom of Solaire Resort and Casino! Megan beat out 24 other candidates for the right to represent the country in Indonesia next month for the annual beauty with a purpose pageant and the oldest for that matter, the Miss World 2013! Megan may not be successful in joining the Binibining Pilipinas this year but it was written in the stars for her to represent the Philippines in an international pageant arena – hopefully to win the first blue crown for us!
