A familiar name in beauty pageantry, Jonavi Quiray was already a national pageant titleholder and international pageants contestant.

Quiray was crowned Mutya ng Pilipinas International 2008 in Puerto Princesa, where the Miss Philippines Earth 2011 finals will also be held. She later competed in the Miss Tourism International 2009 pageant in Malaysia but she was unplaced.

She also competed in an international pageant in 2010, the 1st Miss ASEAN TV Charm held in Vietnam, where she was crowned winner.

Other special awards handed out during the Miss Philippines Earth 2011 swimsuit competition were:

Miss Golden Sunset awarded to Miss Las Pinas City Michelle Gavagan

and Gandang Ricky Reyes Award won by Miss Cebu City Murielle Adrienne Orais.

The Long Gown Competition is next, happening Saturday, May 2, 2011.

As announced on its official website, this year's pageant will be different from the previous ones.

Just like any reality-based competition, there will be weekly eliminations starting this Saturday, May 6, in Calapan, Mindoro.

10 candidates will be eliminated weekly until only 10 remain as final candidates during the pageant finale on June 5 in Puerto Princesa, with a live telecast still on ABS-CBN.

The elimination chuchu is so much exciting, but only 10 candidates in the coronation night is less exciting.
