If we are to believe the schedule in the Miss World website (check it HERE), Miss World Philippines 2013 will be staged on August 4, 2013! My initial reaction after reading this was, You’ve got to be kidding me!!! This is perhaps a very big joke considering that Miss World 2013 is set on September 28, 2013.
The National Finals schedule of Miss World 2013 contestants as per website!
So let me “do the math” for you guys… (1) The finale of Miss World Philippines 2013 is scheduled barely 2 months before the finale of Miss World 2013. (2) Miss World activities lasts for about 2-3 weeks! (3) Thus, the new Miss World Philippines will probably have just about a month to prepare!
Why am I a little stressed-out with the schedule?!? If us Filipinos are really serious in getting that elusive Miss World crown, then it is important to send a prepared delegate – which in Miss World standards usually means: talented, naturally beautiful, with a beach-ready body, excellent catwalk skills, witty and is involved in several charities. My concern is that a winner who still needs to be develop might need more than a month to prepare! If Miss World Philippines can whip-up a Miss World-ready candidate then that would be perfect!
What do you think?!? If the schedule is correct, I hope that Ms. Cory Quirino will try to re-think and consider moving the date to perhaps June or July!
