The Miss Earth 2016 candidates are here and they were officially presented to the media on October 11, 2016 at the Diamond Hotel in Manila. Wearing their swimsuits, each representative form different countries, all introduced themselves by also mentioning a powerful quote or belief related to the protection of the environment.
This is actually not the first encounter of the candidates as most of them were also present during a Meet and Greet event at Oakwood Premiere where we got to chat with the candidates. The Meet and Greet was done a day before on October 10, 2016 and will be repeated on October 12, 2016 to present the other batch of candidates.
At the media presentation at Diamond Hotel, Miss Philippines Earth 2016, Imelda Schweighart, is a real stunner but surely has a tough competition with the candidates from the other countries who are all equally blessed with remarkable beauty.
Miss Sweden Earth 2016, Cloie Syquia Skarne, is the daughter of former actor Gabby Concepcion and Jenny Syquia, thus the stepsister of KC Concepcion, so this could mean Filipinos would probably be rooting for her as well.
Schweighart, who represented Puerto Princesa City, was crowned on June 11, 2016 by Angelia Ong, the reigning Miss Earth 2015 who was also present at the media presentation at Diamond Hotel. Miss Earth 2014, Jamie Herrell, was also there and she revealed her latest business cum advocacy - Isla 7107 slippers.
Congratulations to Miss Ecuador Earth 2016, Katherine Espín Gómez, and Miss Philippines Earth 2016, who tied for the highest votes winning for both of them the title of Darling of the Press.
The other two who made it to Bronze and Silver were Miss USA Earth 2016, Corrin Stellakis, and Miss Venezuela Earth 2016, Stephanie de Zorzi.
Miss Iraq Earth 2016, Suzan Amer, was the only one who could not wear a swimsuit out of respect for her country's beliefs. She's probably the slimmest candidate but definitely beautiful as well. According to a friend, another candidate, Miss Palestine, did not join the media presentation too.

You deserve to see these beauties at all their splendor. They are truly heavenly bodies that are representing not only the external beauty, but also the inner beauty as they advocate for the love of the environment.
