Miss Tourism International 2013 -2014 winner has been crowned! And it's Philippines again thru Angeli Dione Gomez, the 3rd Pinay to win the title.

Just when you thought it's already over for the Philippines winning a beauty pageant title in 2013, it just did. And you're even more wrong if you doubted the country can score a rare back-to-back win in a pageant.

Last night, December 31, 2013, as the world was preparing to embrace a brand new year, Miss Tourism International 2013-14 was being held at the Marriott Hotel Putrajaya in Malaysia with 60 candidates competing for the title.

And at the end of the pageant, crowned Miss Tourism International 2013 winner was Miss Philippines Angeli Dione Gomez, 20, succeeding last year's winner Rizzini Alexis Gomez.

Both Gomez. And both are from the Philippines.

Oops! There's one more. They both hail from Cebu. Wow! Are they related? (Previous reports said they're not.)
