Bicolanas are indeed beautiful. The latest glaring proof of this is the newly-crowned Miss World Philippines Catriona Elisa Magnayon Gray. Miss Gray, a Filipino-Australian who hails from Oas, Albay, was hailed the most beautiful of all the 24 contestants at the pageant help on Sunday night at the Manila Hotel Tent.
Aside from bagging the most-coveted crown, the 22-year-old also took home some of the major awards like Best in Swimsuit, Best in Evening Gown, Best in Fashion Runway, Miss Hannah’s Beach Rest and Miss Manila Hotel. The total amount she won from these special awards is P100,000.
But the fun and privilege don’t stop there. Miss Gray also received P500,000, a brand new Hyundai Eon and a Viva Artist contract worth P1 million. The most exciting part is that come December, she will represent the country at the upcoming Miss World Pageant 2016 in Washington D.C!
Interestingly, Miss Gray is not only a model but is also a blogger. During the competition, the Bicolana beauty was assigned the number 13, a number most people consider unlucky, yet she proved that it’s not your number but how you carry yourself with poise and grace in all situations.
