*Performers: Miss World Philippines 2012 Queenierich Rehman (opening number), Kris Lawrence (swimwear round), Kuh Ledesma, Tom Rodriguez (long gown competition)

*There are 25 stunning candidates vying for the title. They're supposedly 26. But Candidate #1 Nicole Marable withdrew due to her grandma who's ailing in the US. #26 KC Cajandig replaced her as #1.

I know that there will only be Top 12, but I decided to pick 15. Hopin' that all 12 semi-finalists are among those 15 that I've mentioned. (Read: Miss World Philippines 2013 winner, for me, is Megan Young)

*Judges include Dennis Trillo, Jessa Zaragosa, talent manager Arnold Vegafria, GMA 7 executive Joey Abacan and Laguna Gov. ER Ejercito. Should we expect #14 Vina Openiano, #11 Mercegrace Raquel and #17 Jennifer Hammond, all from Laguna, in the semis?

*First set of Special Awards:
#20 Megan Young - Best in Fashion Runway
#7 Samantha Mae Bernardo - Best in Talent
#5 Zahra Bianca Saldua - Miss Friendship

*2nd set of Special Awards:
#20 Megan Young - Miss Sports by FILA, Miss Olay and Miss Reducin

#10 Janicel Lubina - Miss Photogenic
#19 Bianca Paz - Best in Long Gown

*Megan made 'hakot' of the awards, a total of 8. Each award has a P50,000 cash prize. This just means, for the special awards alone, she already has P400,000.

*The Top 13 semi-finalists (yeah, not Top 12) announced: (in order of announcement)

#17 Jennifer Hammond
#6 Karla Patricia Alas
#12 Anjellica Lopez
#19 Bianca Paz
#13 Paula Estenso
#7 Samantha Mae Bernardo
#18 Omarie Linn Osuna
#24 Zandra Flores
#20 Megan Lynne Young
#11 Mercegrace Raquel
#5 Zahra Bianca Saldua
#22 Patricia Ejercitado
#10 Janicel Lubina

*The 'Thank You' Girls: : #1 KC Cajandig, #2 Roselle Marie Ferrer #3 Princesslyn Dignadice, #4 Khadija Nasser, #8 Frances Claire Vintola, #9 Pia Kamil Ochengco, #14 Vina Openiano, #15 Ma. Lily Teresa Salazar, #16 Aikah Dindah, #21 Jennyline Carla Malpaya, #23 Ria Rabajante, #25 Melanie Barret

*Big misses could be #14 Vina Openiano and #23 Ria Rabajante. Biggest surprise probably is the inclusion in the Top 13 of #12.

*And they're down to just 5: Candidates #5, #10, #18, #19, #20

*Never expected #18 to reach this far. Even she, herself, was surprised when her name was called. But she actually did great during the Top 13 Q&A.

*Top 5 Final Q&A. They all have same question from Miss World 2012 Wenxia Yu (thru a video question): Why do you want to be Miss World Philippines 2013? Watch the Q&A on this video: (credit to GMA 7, GMA PinoyTV)

*#5 did pretty well. Well-applauded. The answer of #10, who's got too much lipstick on, sounded so rehearsed. #18 just fine. #19's response is also okay. #20 so relaxed and answered the shortest, but well-delivered and she's very confident. Host KC Montero exclaimed "Wow!" after she answered, also partly because of the loud applause that she got.

*Among Megan's supporters in the audience are sister Lauren, friend Saab Magalona and rumored boyfriend Mikael Daez. Megan and Mikael have consistently denied they're a couple, but the way Mikael cheered so loud for Megan, it's confirmed.

*THE FINAL RESULTS:
4th Princess - #18 Omarie Linn Osuna
3rd Princess - #19 Bianca Paz
2nd Princess - #5 Zahra Bianca Saldua
1st Princess - #10 Janicel Lubina
and the MISS WORLD PHILIPPINES 2013 is candidate #20 Megan Young!

*Bianca was also 3rd Princess and Best in Gown winner during her first try at Ms. World Phil. in 2011.

*It's the first time that the winner is not a "crossover" beauty from other pageants. 2011 winner Gwen Ruais and 2012's Queenie Rehman first joined Bb. Pilipinas before being crowned with the title.
