Celebrating the 19th year of Miss Earth, the prestigious and most coveted beauty event in the world crowned Nellys Pimentel of Puerto Rico as the Miss Earth 2019 who will serve as the ambassador of environmental protection campaigns worldwide.
Foreshadowing the grand coronation of Miss Earth, parties of UAP-Manila Archizonian Chapter, Carousel Productions and Misibis Bay Resort participated in the official contract signing on September 25, 2019.
As a Major partner, pre-pageant activities were hosted at Misibis Bay Resort (MBR). The Miss Earth queens treated the audience to a special swimsuit showcase during the Miss Earth Flora of Misibis parade, with the Albay Gulf at Misibis Bay serving as their background.
As the sun sets, the queens wearing their luxurious long gowns wow the delegates of their Gala Dinner
called “Plate for A Cause”. Proceeds of this dinner were dedicated to the construction of Brgy. Misibis’ water supply system, which is expected to provide for more or less 300 families.
Also, the awarding ceremony of the Miss Earth 2019 Water Group for the resorts wear competition was held in MBR. Miss Earth Vietnam Hoang Thi Hanh bagged the gold medal while Miss Earth Croatia Nera Nicolic and Miss Earth Guyana Faydeha King grabbed the silver and bronze, respectively.
Meanwhile, Nikki Prein of Netherlands was named Miss Earth Flora of Misibis Bay.
Since Miss Earth is a pageant that promotes environmental consciousness, some beauties immersed themselves in a tree planting activity in Misibis Bay Resort’s Ground. Some of the beauties also dedicated their time to try their hand at decorating buri bags made by the women of Misibis Women’s Livelihood Organization (WMLO). The candidates used paint, pili fruits, discarded bottle caps, excess fabrics, lace and ropes to express their creativity. They also visited Misibis Elementary School to meet some of the community’s students.
The 2019 Miss Earth pageant held its coronation ceremonies at the Cove Manila Club at Okada Manila in Parañaque City last October 26. TV host Janelle Tee represented the Philippines in the 19th edition of the Miss Earth pageant.
