Miss Earth 2015 winner: A Back-to-Back for the Philippines!

Miss Earth 2015 winner has just been crowned in Vienna, Austria and surprisingly, it's again Miss Philippines who won the Miss Earth 2015 title
25-year-old Angelia Ong succeeded the Miss Earth 2015 crown from fellow Filipina Jamie Herrell.

It was something I didn't expect, coz after much criticism the Filipino-owned Miss Earth organizer got when they crowned Miss Philippines at home last year.

The pageant was held this year in a country very far from the Philippines, and still, it's the Filipina candidate who won over more than 80 candidates.

Perhaps the reaction of those two clapper candidates at the back when Miss Philippines was crowned, as shown in the above photo, would tell that not everyone's happy with the crowned Miss Earth 2015 winner.

Their reactions, particularly Miss Costa Rica, were different during the crowning or awarding of the runners-up. Look at how they reacted here! (all photos credit to Miss Earth via its FB Page)

Maybe it's just on how they were photographed at that very moment, so it's unfair to conclude they weren't satisfied with the results.

Online reactions are quite like that actually. Thereare some who aren't that ecstatic with the Philippines back to back win, citing that Angelia Ong isn't facially superior. But still, many are convinced that Angelia Ong is a deserving winner.

But what can we do if the charming Filipina aced the final rounds and was the top choice by the mostly European judges right? Her response to the Q&A was so impressive. "We will, because we can," Miss Philippines' answer when asked to propose a slogan for Miss Earth after 15 years.

The crown is hers already, and so let's just congratulate and wish her good luck on her reign as new Miss Earth.

Philippines becomes the first country to have won a back-to-back in Miss Earth, and also the first to have won three times.
