Janela Cuaton Cambodia bound for Miss Tourism Metropolitan International 2016

Finally a pageant assignment for this gorgeous lass Janela Joy Cuaton. She will now wear the Philippine sash at the Miss Tourism Metropolitan International 2016 this coming November 18 to be held in “Kingdom of Wonder” Cambodia. Supposedly she will compete at the Miss Tourism International 2015/2016 in Vietnam, but the pageant did not push through. 

Here’s the official poster of the casting call found at the official website of Miss Tourism Metropolitan International


When Janela crowned her successor last month in Mutya ng Pilipinas 2016 I really thought that it’s all over for her. I’m so stoked knowing about this great news for her because I know she will do great. Janela was one of the heavy favorite when she competed last year at the Mutya ng Pilipinas and she did not disappoint and eventually won as Mutya ng Pilipinas 2015 Tourism International.

The last Filipina to get the Miss Tourism Metropolitan International was Glennifer Perido last 2014/2015.

GMA Network to air Miss World Philippines 2016

We thought that Miss World Philippines 2016 will be aired via TV5 after Viva Entertainment & Miss World Philippines made an announcement last June 14 (photo below) of their partnership for the production of the said pageant. Boy, we’re all wrong because earlier this afternoon there’s an announcement made that the airing of the Miss World Philippines 2016 will still be the GMA network as seen in the photo below posted on their official Facebook page.

First announcement last June 14, 2015
Well, honestly, I wanted TV5 to air the said pageant because maybe they will offer fresh ideas for the production of Miss World Philippines 2016 but I believe Viva will be the one to handle the production so we might see some improvements. Whatever network it is we’re still here to support because Miss World after all is still the second prestigious pageant out there.   

Nancy Leonard for Miss Tourism Queen International 2016

Dreams do come true for the Zamboangeña beauty Nancy Leonard. She will represent the Philippines at the Miss Tourism Queen International 2016 this coming 12th to 28th of September in Wenzhou, China.

This was confirmed via the official Facebook page of Miss Tourism Queen International.

Nancy Leonard confirmed this news as well via an Instagram post last August 19, 2016.

The franchise holder before of Miss Tourism Queen International was Binibining Pilipinas Charities Incorporated. There will be a meet and greet and press conference for Nancy Leonard and the announcement of the new franchise holder this coming September 1, 2016.

Here are some of the behind the scenes photos of Nancy for her preparation for MTQI.

Sneak peek of her National Costume by Edwin Uy. Looks familiar right?. It’s almost the same headdress used by Parul Shah in Miss Grand International 2015 (image below). I’m excited to see the final photo of her national costume.

The final outcome of Nancy Leonard national costume would be just like this one or even more grand?.

Will Nancy Leonard be the 2nd Filipina to win Miss Tourism Queen International after Justine Gabionza?. I really hope so. Nancy is beautiful, smart and have a body to die for.

Justine Gabionza won Miss Tourism Queen International 2006 which was held in Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China.

First Day Screening of Miss World Philippines 2016

The search for the next girl to represent our country in Miss World 2016 has started. Yup, Miss World Philippines 2016 did their general screening last August 18 at the B Hotel in Quezon City.

Below are the girls who are spotted at the screening of Miss World Philippines 2016.

Catriona Gray (Aces & Queens)

Vinnie Dy Quiangco (Aces & Queens)

Sandra Lemonon (Aces & Queens)

Ralph Lauren Asuncion (Aces & Queens) 
Arriene Calingo (Aces & Queens)

Why only eight?. Where are the girls from the other camps like KF?. Yes, I know what you’re thinking guys and I wish I know the answers. The percentage of girls who went at the general screening is definitely lower compared to previous years, but the numbers will grow in the coming days and hopefully we will finally see the girls from the other beauty camps. Final screening is scheduled this coming August 23 at the same venue. 
These two girls definitely stood out on the first day of screening. Catriona Gray and Sandra Lemonon both from Aces & Queens.
