Megan Young Wins Miss World Philippines 2013
Fil-Am celebrity Megan Young was crowned Miss World Philippines 2013 at the Solaire Resort and Casino in Pasay City.
Megan Young dominated the coronation night, grabbing 8 special awards: Best in Fashion Runway, Miss Bench Body, Miss Sports by Fila, Miss Bold and Glamorous by Revlon, Miss Olay, Miss Reducin, Miss Figlia and Miss Laguna World.
Megan entered the showbiz scene in GMA 7′s StarStuck and later on appeared in Pinoy Big Brother Celebrity Edition 2. She has been cast in numerous TV roles, most recently in TV5′s Misimis Bay.
Winning a beauty pageant was always one of the things Megan wanted to do, and she applied earlier to join the Binibining Pilipinas 2013 pageant. However, the conservative pageant body disqualified her because of her topless and sexy photos when she posed for Rogue magazine in March 2012.
“There are many risks in joining this pageant, but it’s only something that happens once in a lifetime. It’s now or never!” said Young.
The runner-ups of Miss World Philippines 2013 are:
- 1st Princess: Janicel Lubina from Palawan. She won Best in Swimwear and Miss Photogenic. She previously won Miss Bikini Philippines earlier this year.
- 2nd Princess: Zahra Saldua from Las Piñas City, a Muslim. She won Miss Friendship and Miss Pantene. She decided not to take off her sarong during the swimsuit competition, and also wore the only one-piece bikini.
- 3rd Princess: Bianca Paz from Nueva Ecija. She won Miss Redoxfat and Best in Long Gown. She placed fourth in the first Miss World PH pageant in 2011.
- 4th Princess: Omarie Linn Osuna from Olongapo City.
Megan will be representing the country in the Miss World 2013 pageant next month, which will be hosted by Indonesia. Here she is with our Miss Universe bet this year, Ariella Arida:
