A third crown for the Philippines this year.
Miss Bea Rose Santiago bagged the crown and bested 66 candidates from different parts of the world in the recently held Miss International 2013 pageant held in Tokyo, Japan. Ms. Santiago, a 23 year old beauty from Masbate, Philippines was selected and crowned Miss International at the 53rd Miss International Beauty Pageant that took place last 17th December 2013. She was crowned by Spain’s 2008 Miss International and not by her immediate predecessor, which was a break from the Miss International pageant custom. Miss International is the last of the major beauty pageants to be held this year and Filipina beauties proved once and for all that they are a force to be reckoned with in international pageants.
During the Q&A round, Bea was asked what she would do if she became Miss International. She replied: “The whole world saw how my country suffered. One by one, other countries helped. You have opened my heart and eyes on what we can do to help each other. I will work to sustain the spirit of sympathy and spirit of hope. As long as we work together, there is hope.”
