Carmi Martin and Isabel Daza with Bubbles Paraiso are the lead stars in the episode titled “Korona,” which is about a story of a former beauty queen who so desperately wants to keep her crown that she takes it to her grave.
Carmi plays Oria, a popular beauty queen in Barangay Papaitan during her prime. Now a mother, Oria has gained a few wrinkles here and there albeit her beauty has not at all faded. In fact, she passed this trait on to her daughter Mabel (Isabel Daza). Mabel dreams of following the footsteps of her mom, but the latter disapproves of the idea reasoning that there must only be one beauty queen in the family.
Mabel is so eager to pursue her dream and so she insisted in joining the Mutya ng Papaitan. But on the night she won the title, she was murdered. Pamela, Mabel’s arch-rival, was considered as the prime suspect and was sentenced to life imprisonment. After Mabel’s tragic death, Oria left Barangay Papaitan.
After a few years, Oria decided to come home and she spearheaded the return of the Mutya ng Papaitan beauty contest in honor of her deceased daughter. But all hell break loose when on the night of the coronation, Mabel’s fiery ghost suddenly appears freaking out every one in attendance. Her delusion is that she is still the reigning beauty queen of Papaitan and no one will ever deserve that title besides her. Will she eventually come to terms with reality?
