Nariman Battikha of Venezuela wins Reina Hispanoamericana 2018!

After missing out from the Top 4 in last night’s Miss Earth, Venezuela is back on track with Nariman Battikha becoming the new Reina Hispanoamericana, the 7th Venezuelan to win the prestigious Latin-based pageant since its inception in 1991.

Although Miss Filipinas Alyssa Mulach Alvarez failed to advance into the semis, she still look like a queen wearing a patriotic marsala red evening gown from Benj Leguiab IV.

Congratulations Venezuela! And to Alyssa, we are proud of you. You were amazing tonight!

My 2017 Recap in Beauty Pageants!

2017 has been an eventful year in the world of pageantry from the staging of the 65th Miss Universe pageant in Manila in January up to it’s homecoming in Las Vegas last November 26 and every minor and major pageants in between – it was whirlwind and almost chaotic for both pageant fans and pundits!

France took the Miss Universe crown ending its 63-year title drought.

In a sold-out Mall of Asia Arena in the Philippines, you could hear the crowd clamoring for Haiti’s Raquel Pélissier to succeed the DCI crown from the outgoing Miss Universe, the Philippines’ very own Pia Wurtzbach but Iris Mittenare of France was just too strong a competitor to be denied. It was a well-deserved win after an impressive showing during the prelimenaries and a flawless performance in the finals night. Iris was the rightful winner!

Rachel Peters Conquered the Binibini Stage!

Rachel Peters is one of the frontrunners during this year’s Binibining Pilipinas and she was faultless during the finals night leaving all of the contestants vying for the lesser crowns.

Miss Earth 2017 is the Philippines!

Philippines winning the crown three times in four years was mired with criticism of it being rigged but truth be told, in a world full of mere beauties – having the brains to boot is a novelty that will be rewarded, given the right time.

Venezuela’s Ninoska Vasquez overperformed.
Ninoska was touted to be one of the two strongest delegates for the crown. She was perfection all throughout the pre-pageant night activities but fel short with her stage-presence during the finals. Rather, she may have done it a bit too much that left the judges uncomfortable?

Fahsai underwelhmed.
Along with the Venezuelan beauty, Paweesuda Drouin of Thailand nicknamed as Fahsai was expected to be part of the elemental court but during the crucial Final 8 interview portion of the competition, she stumbled when she picked the hashtag Millenial possibly costing her the Miss Earth crown.

Karen Ibasco lorded over the heavy favorites!
The Philippines is almost always sending brainy girls in this pageant. That is the biggest asset of Karen Ibasco as the host nation as she set on reclaiming the crown back to our home turf.

She may not be the most conventionally beautiful girl in the bunch but the girl does eat mic for breakfast and only reads the dictionary. Hah! Kidding aside, Karen was untouchable after the final 8 interview.

The Muy Caliente performance of Teresita Marquez at the Reina Hispanoamericana!

It was the debut participation of the Philippines and sending Teresita Marquez was perhaps the wisest decision from the organizer of the Miss World Philippines under its new national director – Arnold Vegafria.

Terestita also known as WinWyn Marquez was unstoppable in Bolivia so it’s very easy to see why she won the pageant becoming the very first Asian to do so!

Manushi Chhillar snatched the sixth Miss World crown for India tying the title with the most wins along with Venezuela.

One word – Liminous!

Indonesia finally won their first major beauty pageant crown!

Kevin Lilliana was the main frontrunner from the get go of the compeition and it’s no wonder that she end up giving her country its first win in a major beauty competition!

The Worst Staging of Miss Universe in History!

Aside from its cheap pre-pageant activities and the horrendous preliminary competition, the 66th edition of the pageant was nothing to write home about. It’s probably the worst staging of the pageant that I could remember!

Was Davina Bennett Robbed?

After a stellar performance all throughout the night, Jamaica’s Davina Bennett who sported an afro was denied the crown, only winning third overall. Despite strong showing, it seems like the competition was already pre-determined to be all about Demi-Leigh Peters of South Africa.

I’m very much happy with the overall winners of each respective major pageants and I hope to see more competitive girls in 2018!

Miss Filipinas Teresita “WinWyn” Marquez is the Winner of #Reinahispanoamericana2017

After Karen Ibasco grabbed the Miss Earth title last night, Teresita Ssen Marquez or better known in the Philippines as Winwyn Marquez has won the hearts of the judges and the people of Bolivia by winning the 2017 Reina Hispanoamericana. This is also the Philippines’ first participation in the pageant and also the only Asian country to be invited to participate! What a feat! Congratulations Winwyn!

Winwyn Marquez and her Reina Hispanoamericana Quest! #ReinaHispanoamericana2017

Miss Filipinas Teresita ‘Winwyn’ Marquez is definitely gaining momentum on her road to winning the first ever Reina Hispanoamericana crown this Saturday, November 4 in Sta. Cruz dela Sierra, Bolivia.

Although lacking Spanish fluency, Winwyn’s charm is still winning judges and sponsors left and right in the on-going pre-pageant activities. She recently won the title of Miss Ipanema and was adjudged 1st runner-up Miss Personality.

Do you think Winwyn will win the crown on Saturday?

Winwyn Marquez’ National Costume at the Reina Hispanoamericana 2017!

Miss Filipinas Winwyn Marquez is looking oh-so-fierce with this Pintados-inspired national costume created by Edwin Uy specifically for our very first rep to the Latin pageant, Reina Hispanoamericana.

Now, this is what I call a well-thought-out national costume departing from the usual Filipiniana we’re all used to seeing in the past.

This intricate creation was also chosen as one of the Top 3 National Costumes along with the costumes of the delegates from Venezuela and Panama.
