The Miss World Philippines 2013 Coronation Night is happening later at the Grand Ballroom of Solaire Resort and Casino, to be aired at 10PM by GMA 7.
Here I am again with my predictions list, this time for Miss World Philippines 2013, whose winner will represent our
country in Miss World happening this September in Indonesia.
From Day 1 of the pageant until this very end, my top choice for the crown has always been candidate no. 20, actress-host Megan Young.
training needed. It would be a big upset if she doesn't win tonight.
THE RUNNERS-UP: These 4 ladies, who have competed many times already in other
pageants, could be Megan's toughest competitors for the crown.
1st Princess: #19 Maria Paula Bianca Paz (She was already 3rd Princess in Miss World Philippines 2011 and she was reportedly asked by pageant director Cory Quirino to return this
year. Well, I'd like to believe that she was asked to join, not to be guaranteed with the crown, but only to fill in slots especially that only 31 hopefuls were screened for this year's pageant.)
2nd Princess: #10 Janicel Lubina
3rd Princess: #22 Patricia Lae Ejercitado
4th Princess: #24 Zandra Flores
SEMI-FINALISTS: 10 candidates who could make it as a semi-finalists. I had a hard time trimming them down to just 7, so I made it 10.
#17 Jennifer Hammond
#23 Ria Rabajante
#14 Vina Openiano
#5 Zahra Bianca Saldua
#11 Mercegrace Raquel
#16 Aikah Dindah
#21 Jennyline Carla Malpaya
#8 Frances Claire Vintola

ALTERNATES: I won't mind if these 4 will be called as a Top 12 semi-finalist.
#13 Paula Estenso
#18 Omarie Linn Osuna
#1 Henna Kaizelle Nicole Cajandig
#6 Karla Patricia Alas
LONG SHOTS: It would be surprising if these girls will make the cut:

#3 Princesslyn Dignadice
#25 Melanie Barret
#4 Khadija Nasser
#2 Roselle Marie Ferrer
