Miss World Philippines has found a new home in TV5, formalizing a deal with the aggressive Philippine broadcasting network.
Following the success of the first Miss World Philippines last year and the 1st Runner-Up finish of Gwendoline Ruias at the Miss World pageant held in London, England, the prestigious pageant moves forward with a celebration of “Beauty with Purpose”, underscoring the advocacy of Miss World in championing the cause of marginalized women and children.
With TV5 as its official media partner, Miss World Philippines begins its nationwide search for candidates that can give the country a winning chance to claim the Miss World crown, which has eluded the Philippines for 61 years.
The next Miss World Pageant is slated for August 16 in Ordos, Inner Mongolia, China. More than 113 candidates from all over the world will compete for the crown that will proclaim the winner as the most beautiful woman in the world.
Miss World is the longest-running pageant in the world, established in 1951 with headquarters in London, England.
Present at the contract signing were TV5 President and CEO Atty. Ray Espinosa and CQ Global Quest Inc. Chair and CEO and Miss World Philippines 2012 Pageant Director Cory Quirino.
“We are happy to welcome Miss World Philippines to TV5 and we will be equally proud of the candidates who will join this year’s pageant as well as our future Miss World Philippines who will vie for the Miss World crown,” Atty. Espinosa said.
Cory Quirino stated: “Miss World Philippines is pleased to have found a new home in TV5 which secures the future of this prestigious pageant and strengthens the hope of every Filipina who holds the dream of becoming a beauty queen”.
TV5 will air the Miss World Philippines Pageant live from the Manila Hotel in late June. The much anticipated Miss World Pageant in Inner Mongolia, China will also be broadcast live via TV5 in August.
