|Miss Globe 2016 3rd Runner Up Nichole Manalo|
The pageant that was held last November 25 in Albania was a controversial one already and it doesn’t seem to stop there. Now they’re proclaiming additional runners up. During the pageant night they only announced the winner, which is India and the two runners up, Colombia and Albania but there’s no 3rd & 4th runners up. The reason why it was not announced because according to the organizers it was an honest mistake, the hosts forgot to read the other two runners up. So they decided to make a proclamation/crowning moment for the other two runners up, yup 2 days after the coronation night. The 3rd runner up was the Philippines and the 4th runner up was South Africa. South Africa was not present during the proclamation because she’s on her way home already and the organizers will be mailing her crown and sash.
During the explanation of Miss Mia, the National Director of Miss Globe Canada, some are asking about the real age of Miss India Dimple Patel, the newly crowned Miss Globe 2016, which according to them she’s over age already. Another controversy waiting to happen?
After more than a decade Miss Asia Pacific International pageant is back. The final night was held in Sheridan Beach Resort and Spa in Puerto Princesa City, Palawan, Philippines last November 23, 2016.

During the Q&A round Meryl was asked “What do you think is the essence of winning the pageant?”. Her answer was “We become more passionate in protecting our ocean, I would raise awareness involving NGO’s, students, communities and the government to stand in one in promoting marine biodiversity and protect and save the ocean”.
Our bet Miss Philippines Janela Joy Cuaton almost got the crown of Miss Tourism Metropolitan International 2016 by placing 1st runner up. After the Q&A round I had the feeling already that it’s either her and the winner which is Thailand.
During the Q&A round Janela was asked about how she can promote Cambodia’s Fashion to the world and she answered with confidence “Create a marketing campaign that would raise curiosity about Cambodia’s Fashion but let’s not forget that the real treasure of Cambodia is its people.”
