Just like last year’s winner–Gwendolyn Ruais–this year’s newly crowned Miss World Philippines Queen was also a former Bb. Pilipinas contestant. Last year, Queenie was a Top 15 finalist and Best in Swimsuit winner in the Bb. Pilipinas pageant won by Shamcey Supsup. But it’s the MWP crown that’s best fit for Queenie Rehman‘s head as she was named winner on fateful Sunday night.
Rehman from Las Piñas City took home P1 million cash prize and a Hyundai car aside from a handful of special/sponsor awards that she won.
Here’s the transcript of the Question and Answer Portion which won for Rehman the Beauty and Brains Award, and of course, the Miss World Philippines crown:
Edu: What are you going to do first thing later?
Rehman: Eat as much as I can. Of course, I’m going to sleep the whole day.
Tweet Question: As an ambassador of the Philippines, what are the best features of your country that you can project to the world?
Rehman: I believe that wherever you will go here in the Philippines, it’s not the islands that make us special but of course the Filipinos who have warm hospitality, who are having smiles on their faces, and of course who will treat all foreigners the love and respect, and hospitality that they can give to them. I believe that the Philippines is a country that we can be proud of.
