Miss World Philippines 2012 Top 5

Queenerich Rehman of Las Piñas City was crowned last night as Miss World Philippines 2012.  She beat 24 other contestants for the right to represent the Philippines in the Miss World pageant. The MorrocanFilipina will be the country’s representative to  the 2012 Miss World pageant on August 18 in Inner Mongolia, China.  She received P1 million cash prize and a Hyundai car for her feat.

Aside from winning the crown, she won several special award and minor prizes. She bagged Best In Swimwear, Miss Photogenic, Miss Talent (tie), Miss Philippines Prudential, Miss World Traveler, and Miss Pantene.  She showed off her beatboxing and singing skills in the course of winning the talent portion of the competition.  She also bagged the Brains and Beauty award for her response during the Question and Answer portion. When asked the question: As an ambassador of the Philippines, what are the best features of your country that you can project to the world?  She responded by saying “I believe that wherever you will go here in the Philippines, it’s not the islands that make us special but of course the Filipinos who have warm hospitality, who are having smiles on their faces, and of course who will treat all foreigners the love and respect, and hospitality that they can give to them. I believe that the Philippines is a country that we can be proud of.”

The Miss World Philippines crown was awarded to her by last year’s winner Gwendolyn Ruias.  The Filipina-French model was last year’s First Princess in the Miss World pageant held in London.  Miss Rehman will hope to surpass the amazing performance of her predecessor  and bring the title to the Philippines.

Last night’s first princess was Maryanne Ross Misa of Paranaque City.  Lapu-Lapu City‘s Vanessa Claudine Amman was the 2nd princess.  The pride of Cebu also won several awards like Miss Friendship, Miss Laguna World, and Miss Olay. 3rd princess was former Binibining Pilipinas semifinalist April Love Jordan.
