Ali Forbes And Gil Wagas Keeps The Philippines’ Winning Streak In The World Of Pageantry!

They may have not won the crown but they surely showed the world that indeed, the Philippines is a powerhouse when it comes to beauty pageants.

Last Tuesday November 19, Ali Forbes was hailed 4th over all during the first staging of Miss Grand International in Bangkok, Thailand with Puerto Rico winning the crown. Ali was a hot favorite at the duration of the pageant and she didn’t disappoint at all thus continuing the lucky streak of the Philippines this year in the world of international pageants.

While last night, November 22 our representative Gil Wagas placed 5th behind the winner Mr. Venezuela at the conclusion of the Mister International 2013 in Indonesia. I’m doubly proud of Gil because he used to be a player of my school basketball team 🙂 I’m so damn proud of this guy!

You may remember Annalie “Ali” Forbes when she placed fifth during the Binibining Pilipinas beauty pageant last year. She may have fallen short during that night in clinching a crown but this girl just won’t give up her dreams of becoming a beauty queen. She, in fact will be representing the Philippines in the very first edition of Miss Grand International – a Thai-based International pageant which according to their website “aims to become the world’s leading international beauty contest under sponsorship from governments and organizations that will make a stand for the betterment of humanity.”
