Bea Rose Santiago (23) was named Miss International Philippines and will represent the country at the 53rd Miss International Pageant later this year. She stands 1.75m tall. She also won the Bb. Avon title. The new Binibining Tourism is 23 year old Cindy Miranda who stands 1.7m tall. She might represent the Philippines at a tourism related pageant during her year of reign. A Miss Supranational Philippines title was also awarded for the first time. The winner of this title was 20 year Mutya Datul who stands 1.73 m tall. She will travel to Belarus to represent her country at the 5th Miss Suprantional Pageant. The first runner-up was Pia Wurtzbach (23) who will have to step in for any of the winners if they should become unable to represent their country.

Camille Nazar, Charmaine Elima, Ellore Punzalan, Merry Joice Respicio, Maria Angelica de Leon, Parul Shah, Grace Yann Apuad, Rhea Nakpil, Imelda Schweighart, and Amanda Noelle Navasero completed the top 15.

Watch this video of the crowning:

The winner is really pretty. She wasn't one of my overwhelming favorites but I think she's really beautiful. I think she'll be top 10 at Miss Universe for sure. Not sure if she can do as well as the last three girls. The girl who is going to Miss International is quite an interesting choice. I'm not sure how she will do at that pageant. I think the Tourism crown is wasted on Cindy Miranda. She's stunning. The girl who is going to Supranational is gorgeous too. Good results. Pia Wurtzbach and Charmaine Elima should return for sure!
