Megan Young truly made history. The Philippines has been competing in Miss World pageant for 46 long years in the pageant’s 65th year.

The Philippines at long last finally made it!
Since the Philippines’ very first entry in 1966, i.e., 46 very long years, finally in this lifetime and this year a Filipina by celebrity actress gorgeous Megan Lynne Young bags the very first Miss World crown for her pageant amorous country.
September 28, 2013 has now become a remarkable date in Philippine pageant history as our Megan Lynne Young, 23, 5’8″ was officially proclaimed Miss World by MWO producer Julia Morley in a fabulous ceremony in Indonesia.
Ecstatic still to this very writing, the joy of Megan’s victory has been an overwhelmingly wonderful experience as we all have been for the longest time excitedly waiting for this truly momentous event to take place.
Indeed, watching the pageant On LIVE streaming was truly exciting and tension-filled especially with the company of good friends and pageant enthusiasts. My friends and I held a viewing party in Crash Pad Bistro, which by the way serves good food at the Palm Towers Condominium in Makati City. We utilized the working online LIVE streaming links as I did REAL time updates on the Facebook FAN page I manage (Link: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Binibining-Pilipinas/339622105370?ref=hl).
We all felt something great was abound. True enough, the many prayers, all so positive vibes, best of wishes, the gayest and of loudest cheers, etc., might have all conspired with the good universe to swing to Megan’s winning momentum.
Megan bested 126 other delegates in a festive event at Bali Nusa Dua Convention Center in Bali, Indonesia including France’s Marine Lorphelin, 1st Princess and Ghana’s Carranza Shooter, 2nd princess, respectively. Other finalists included delegates from Spain, Brazil and Gibraltar.
Congratulations to you Megan for being our very first Miss World! You made us, your country people, extremely happy and very proud!

Tomorrow, September 28, 2013, at Bali Nusa Dua Convention Center in Bali, Indonesia we shall all witness the crowning of the 2013 Miss World, the 63rd edition of pageant. Reigning Miss World Yu Wenxia of China PR will relinquish her crown to the rightful and most deserving queen from among the over 120 delegates competing this year.
Certainly this year is the most exciting for this pageant amorous Philippines as she is represented by a really lovely goddess of beauty and ever amiable actress Megan Lynne Young, 23, and 5’8″ tall.
Megan is favored to win the Miss Wold crown by the many so called pageant experts and pageant netizens. To date, Megan has won the the plum TOP Model award, placed 4th in the Multi Media challenge and 5th in Beach Fashion. Such truly manifest good signs of being a real front runner to the blue crown.
Yes, the Miss World crown has never won by a Filipina just yet from her very first entry in 1966. Closest ever were Evangeline Pascual in 1973 and Gwendolyn Ruais in 2011 who both placed First runners up.
Will Megan Lynne Young be the Philippines’ very first Miss World? Such is the real clamor and prayers of this nation.
For sure Megan will be an excellent and famous Miss World as she is a perfect ambassadress of beauty with a good purpose-very amiable, communicates excellently, very classy, truly confident, stunningly beautiful, naturally likable, etc.
Tomorrow is the day we’ve all been eagerly waiting for. God bless the Philippines and may the winning momentum truly swing to your direction, Megan!

A heavy favorite from the very start, Filipina-American Megan Lynne Young, famous actress, 23, won this year’s Miss World Philippines title in last night’s pageant at Solaire Resort and Casino, Pasay City.
In the pageant’s 64th edition, Megan earned the right to represent the Philippines in the 2013 Miss World pageant to be held in Indonesia come September 28.
With the stiff competition, Megan bested 24 other candidates including pageant veterans and favorites First Princess – Janicel Lubina
Second Princess – Zahra Saldua, Third Princess – Bianca Paz and Fourth Princess – Omarie Linn Osuna.
Megan belongs to Team Aces and Queens, the country’s most famous and successful beauty pageant camp. It’s the same team which successfully handled last year’s Miss World Philippines Queenie Rehman, recent Miss Universe runners up Venus Raj, Shamcey Supsup and Janine Tugonon, etc.
Miss World Philippines 2013, is the 3rd edition of CQGQI’s (Cory Quirino Global Quest, Inc.). Wishfully, the Philippines will finally win her very first Miss World crown this year.
Congratulations and good luck, Megan!

Yes we’re yet to glimpse more of them strut on the stage, articulate their thoughts, project their striking assets, etc but so far to what’s been seen, the real stand out in this year’s Miss World Philippines are
MerceGrace Raquel, 19, 5’10”, UP graduate, Laguna, 2013 Bb Pilipinas candidate;
Megan Young, 23, 5’7’, Olongapo City, and a famed celebrity;
Patricia Ejercitado, 24, Cainta Rizal, 5’7”, UST graduate, a licensed Interior designer, and a semifinalist in 2012 Bb Pilipinas.
Do you concur? Who are your bets?
As an enthusiast of Bb Pilipinas, glad to see Bianca Paz from 2009 (disqualified in 2011) Bb Pilipinas; Nicole Marable and Patricia Ejercitado from Bb Pilipinas 2012; KJ Kahandig, Zandra Flores, Ria Rabajante and MerceGrace Raquel from Bb Pilipinas Gold back in the pageant scene, and this time as they all quest for the 2013 Miss World Philippines crown.
Since managed by CQ Global Quest Inc in 2011, the two consecutive winners of Miss World Philippines were Bb Pilipinas candidates namely Gwen Ruias (2010 Bb Pilipinas) and Quennie Rehman (2011 Bb Pilipinas).
In 2011 Miss World Philippines, the runners up were all Bb Pilipinas candidates, Ist RU Helen Nicolette Henson (Bb 2010 Ist RU), 2nd RU Martha Chloe McCulley (Bb 2011), 3rd RU Bianca Paz (Bb 2009) and 4th RU Jayzel Arrozal (Bb 2009). In 2012 Miss World Philippines, 2 of 4 runners up were once Bb Pilipinas candidates, Ist RU Mary Ann Ross Misa (Bb 2010 semifinalist) and 3rd RU April Love Jordan (Bb 2009 semifinalist).
Will this year’s Miss World Philippines come form these Bb Pilipinas candidates? Let us see come coronation night on 18 August 2013.
The Miss World crown is yet to be won by the Philippines. From her very first entry in 1966 to date, the closest ever achieved almost there so to speak were the first runners up placements of Evangeline Pascual in 1973 and Gwen Ruias in 2011. Movie celebrity Ruffa Gutierrez placed 2nd runner up in 1993.
Aside from the most coveted and awaited crown itself, starting in the 1980’s continental beauties were also awarded in the Miss World pageant. The Philippines won five times
as Asia/Asia & Oceania’s Queen of Beauty in 1982 (Sara Jane Areza), 1986 (Sherry Rose Byrne), 1993 (Ruffa Guttierez) 2004 (Karla Bautista) and 2011 (Gwen Ruais).
Pretty sure in this lifetime we’d like to witness a Filipina finally crowned Miss World, right? Will 2013 be the year of our crowning glory?
Hope this year’s Miss World Philippines is a stunning beauty who shall embody what Miss World would be looking for exactly, that is, someone who is classy, smart, genuinely interested in doing charities, a true beauty with a purpose, etc and the same time be providential enough to realize this long time goal.
The final screening for 2013 Miss World will be tomorrow and the coronation night is scheduled August 18, 2013.
All photos of our Miss World almost victories in history grabbed online. Evangeline Pascual was first runner up in 1973, Ruffa Gutierrez was 2nd runner up in 1993 and Gwen Ruias was first runner up in 2011.
As she was truly deprived of the right to join BbPilipinasGOLD last March to the many fans’ dismay, this 2013 Miss World Philippines pageant, will Megan Young finally realize her dream to wear the Miss Philippines sash and represent this pageant amorous nation in a huge international pageant such as the Miss World pageant?
Megan Young’s participation this year has certainly added more excitement and value to Miss World Philippines pageant. Now I hope the pageant coronation night will be open to the public or the bloggers like ME.

Trending has it that the past 2 winners of #MWP or #MissWorldPhilippines were past BB Pilipinas semifinalists namely Gwen Ruias (Bb Pilipinas 2010 semifinalist) and Queenie Rehman (Bb Pilipinas 2011 semifinalist). Shall the trend carry on and the crown be in Patricia Lae Ejercitado’s head (Bb Pilipinas 2012 semifinalist)? Let us wait and witness! Your valuable thoughts?
