Miss Manila Karen Ibasco is Miss Philippines Earth 2017

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Congratulations to the new MISS PHILIPPINES EARTH for 2017 - Miss Manila Karen Ibasco!

The Coronation Night held on Saturday, July 15, 2017 at the Mall of Asia (MOA) Arena crowned another beauty queen hailing from Malate, Manila. She will now compete for the title of Miss Earth soon.

At an interview held right on the stage of the MOA Arena, Karen revealed that she was not the reigning Miss Manila but was only sent as a representative by no less than Mayor Joseph "Erap" Estrada himself to represent Manila at the Miss Philippines Earth beauty pageant.

Well, we have to commend the good mayor for an excellent choice since Karen really impressed us with not only her looks but with her outstanding answer during the final and ultimate Question and Answer portion where only one question was asked of the five finalists. While others were prevented fro hearing the question, each candidate gave her answer to the question that goes something like "The government's slogan is Change is Coming, what change do you want to see in terms of Environmental Policy in the country?"

We asked Karen if she was aware that her answer clinched her win since the other finalists did not directly answer the question. Well, she said she somehow knew it because of the reaction and wild applause of the audience. 

Now, I truly believe that the judges do care about the intellect of the candidates since they picked the one with the best answer as the ultimate winner.
