Miss Earth 2008

For the first time, I wasn't thrilled when Billy Crawford announced that Miss Philippines has won in this year's Miss Earth. Why?! Because of some freakin' SPOILERS!! Argh! I just hate it when online forumers don't use spoiler tags. when I read the spoiler in that online forum, that thrill whenever I watch a beauty pageant just vanished.

On the brighter side, Miss Philippines really did win. I'm proud of her coz she's a fellow Cebuana. I'm happy but not thrilled. Karla Henry is the prettiest Miss Philippines ever. No wonder she bagged the crown. Among the four finalists (Mexico, Brazil, Tanzania and Philippines), Miss Philippines gave the best answer. Luckily for Miss Tanzania she recovered from a "Janina San Miguel" moment. If you don't know who Janina is, just search her name on YouTube and you'll know. Mexico's answer wasn't that good so as Brazil's. I didn't like MIss Tanzania's gown. She looks like she's going to her debut party. I like Spain and Czech Republic but unfortunately they didn't make the cut.

This year's host were Billy Crawford, Priscilla Meirelles (Miss Earth 2004), and Riza Santos (Miss Canada - Earth 2006) Billy and Riza did a good job. I really can't understand Priscilla's english because of her Portuguese accent She hosted Miss Earth pageant two years in a row now. I just hope the production staff or whoever is assigning her to host would replace her next year. Whoever is the designer of Priscilla's gown (the blue one) should be arrested by the fashion police. It is unflattering to look at and she looks like she's pregnant.

Karla Henry and Janina San Miguel (just google her name if you don't know her.. :D) are batch mates in this year's Bb. Pilipinas. What a shame on the part of Bb. Pilipinas. Good thing Janina backed out.
