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.   

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.
