She walks like a queen in a five-inch stiletto, gracefully waving her hand to the people. Even when she is only in a skimpy bikini, she is all smiles, notwithstanding the lack of sleep, and with her beautiful face and body, she could be the next beauty to be crowned Miss Earth.
On Nov. 9 at the Clark Expo Amphitheater in Angeles City, 85 beauties from around the globe will compete for the title of Miss Earth. The pageant will be broadcast on ABS-CBN and to many countries worldwide via Star World, The Filipino Channel and other partner networks.
Now on its 8th year and touted as the world’s third most popular beauty pageant, this year’s competition focuses on the theme “green lifestyle.”
As early as Oct. 19, delegates from Asian countries arrived, and Miss Philippines Paula Karly Henry, a native of Cebu, has been busy welcoming the world’s most eco-friendly beauties.
“Everyone here is beautiful in many different ways,” Miss Venezuela Daniella Torrealba said during a dinner hosted by the Department of Tourism for the Miss Earth delegates at the Mandarin Oriental Manila.
As the only pageant in the world with a defined purpose, Carousel Productions has gathered the world’s most beautiful women with varied backgrounds and physical attributes. Miss USA is the oldest candidate at 26 while there are few candidates in the 18- year-old group, including those from Argentina, Cuba, Germany, Israel, Malta, Sweden, and South Sudan.
