Thirty-Five Beautiful Ladies make the list to one of the most coveted pageants in the country, the Miss World Philippines 2017

After the preliminary screening held at the New World Makati Hotel last Saturday, June 29, 2017, the Miss World Philippines organizers, after thorough and meticulous screening,  finally chose from a very diverse group of hopefuls,  the thirty-five "crème de la crème" official candidates for this year's competition.

The ladies revealed their statuesque figures as they donned their swimsuits and evening gowns, and also gave a glimpse of their interesting personalities during the profile interviews.

In no particular order, some of these beauty queen hopefuls include an international pageant runner-up, a sportscaster, a daughter of an actor and a commercial model, a forensic practitioner from the U.S., two half-Germans, a professional singer with a recording contract, a national titleholder, provincial level titleholders, a sister of a Miss World Philippines (decade: 90s), and an orphan who turned into competitions to gain experience and friends.

Miss World Philippines National Director Arnold Vegafria is optimistic about the quality and diversity of this year's bumper crop of aspirants.

He says, "It's remarkable how today's young Filipina beauties are obviously more confident, principled, outspoken, but more importantly, driven with a bigger and nobler purpose.

“Now that we've leveled the playing field, we can only wish them luck in their quest for the title and make pageant history once more."

For his part, Miss World Philippines General Manager Bessie Besana is ecstatic about the unprecedented turnout.

"This is definitely a record-breaking feat!" he exclaims. "Based on the numbers alone, we've never seen this kind of enthusiasm and interest during the past years. With these ladies, we are confident that we can keep up the country's winning streak in the global pageant arena."
