Philippines' Bet Valerie Weigmann Makes it to Top 25 of Miss World 2

 

IIt’s a scene that’s familiar to many of us: skipping work or staying up in the middle of the night to watch a beauty pageant, hoping the Philippine contestant will take home the crown. Lately, we’ve been optimistic. The recent grand slam of Filipinas taking home crowns in various competitions has made us hopeful 2014 will be another good year. After all, our very own Jamie Herrell won the crown in this year’s Miss Earth.

Which made us very hopeful for this year’s Miss World. Just last year, Megan Young won the title, becoming the first Filipina to so. She also made news for crowning her successor and hosting the awarding ceremony. But it was not a very lucky year for us in the pageant. Our bet, host Valerie Weigmann, did not win the crown.

But she did put up a big fight. She looked stunning with her cheerful smile and her bright yellow gown. She made it to the quarterfinals, but did not make it to the Top 10. The contestants selected for the Top 10 were: India, South Africa, England, Guyana, Brazil, Hungary, Kenya, United States, Mexico, and Australia. Thailand won the People’s Choice award, including her in the semifinals. It was then narrowed down to the Top 5: Hungary, Australia, South Africa, United States, and England.

In the end, South Africa’s Rolene Strauss won the crown, with Hungary’s Edina Kulcsar as the runner-up, and United States’ Elizabeth Safrit as the second runner-up.
