Philippines, australia to send joint candididate to future international pageants

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – First it was Catriona Gray winning the Miss Universe Pageant. Then last night , Karen Gallman bagged the title of Miss Intercontinental — a first for the Philippines in the pageant’s 47-year history, She was crowned by Mexico’s Veronica Sala Vallejo at the Mall of Asia Arena.

Like Gray, Gallman is Filipino-Australian. She has roots in Brisbane and Bohol. Gray was born in Queesland which claimed her as their own when she won the Miss Universe crown.

It looks like the pageant world has found the magic combination for winning the crown.

So today, the organizers of Miss Philippines and Miss Australia signed a Memorandum of Agreement that going forward, the two countries will send a common candidate to all international beauty pageants.

The only thing missing in the agreement is how the candidate will be named: Miss Philippines-Australia or Miss Australia-Philippines.
