AR Dela Serna of Bohol is the First Mister Supranational Philippines

 AR Dela Serna: Bohol's First
Ten years after Anna Maris Igpit became the first Boholana beauty to be crowned a Bb Pilipinas titleholder (she was Bb Pilipinas- World 2006) Alberto Rodulfo “AR” Yap Dela Serna, the son of Albert Dela Serna and former Pob. 2 Brgy. Captain Glorivic Dela Serna, made history as the first Boholano to win a national male pageant title.

AR was proclaimed the first Mister Supranational Philippines 2016 during the grand coronation gala of Misters of Filipinas held at the Newport Performing Arts Theater, Resorts World Manila in Pasay City last weekend.

The paragon of drive, discipline & determination, Dela Serna was Mr. Photogenic and 1st Runner Up in last year’s edition of Misters of the Philippines when he decided to compete again. A stellar performance plus the advantage of experience proved to be the winning edge for the 22 year old and 6’ 1” tall Business Administration graduate from Holy Name University, Tagbilaran City
  Dela Serna: Debonaire. Dapper. Dashing.
From 27 official candidates from around the country and from overseas Filipino communities, the field was whittled down to the Final Fifteen before the six titleholders and two runners up were proclaimed.

Coincidentally, just like Anna Maris Igpit who competed for the Miss World 2006 crown in Poland, AR Dela Serna will represent the Philippines in the Mister Supranational Pageant on December 3 also in Poland.  Over 40 men from around the globe are expected to compete in the beautiful Polish city of Krynica-Zdrój. The inaugural search for Mister Supranational will be televised in over 30 countries and the winner will get 10,000 USD in cash plus a modeling contract in Europe.
  RP's bets will leave for the international finals in Poland
Meanwhile, AR Dela Serna’s female counterpart, Bb. Pilipinas Supranational 2016 Joanna Eden will also fly to Krynica- Zdrój, Poland for the Miss Supranational 2016 edition which will have its coronation night on December 2.

Congratulations and good luck to you AR Dela Serna!

Miss Iran & Miss Israel in Miss Global 2016

It might sound like a worn- out cliché but it’s true that pageant girls do aspire for world peace. Take the case of the ongoing Miss Global 2016 Pageant.

Last September 17 & 18, a bevy of beauties from all corners of the globe converged in Bohol not only to visit its natural wonders and to sample the renowned warmth and hospitality of Boholanos but also to compete in the swimsuit preliminaries.

Your Roving Eye and Mr. Ric Obedencio, veteran newsman were given access to cover the girls’ swimsuit photo and video shoot at the spectacular Alona Beach in Panglao, Bohol. We had the chance to get to know some of the girls including Miss Norway whose mom is from the neighboring island of Cebu. 

The girls from Tunisia, Sri Lanka & Sweden who were in the pool of the host resort obliged us with a photo. Madagascar was such a pleasant & pretty lady who shared to us that she already posted about Bohol on her social media accounts.

It was the talked- about photo shoot of Danielle Celine Bouskila, 25, of Israel and Melika Razavi, 27, of Iran that proved to be the scenestealer. It was a sight to behold as the two Middle Eastern beauties gamely posed in their two- piece swimsuits.

Although we were not able to photograph them together as the crew had to work on a tight schedule, it was enough that the countries were able to declare a truce even if it was on the beauty pageant stage.  

Now who said beauty pageants can’t be arenas for diplomacy, friendship and world peace?

Good luck and may the best lady win!

The Sand, Sea & Sun of Alona Beach, Panglao, Bohol & Miss Global 2016

It was a warm warm welcome indeed for the 2016 Miss Global candidates when they set foot on the province of Bohol last September 17. I am referring not only to the friendliness and hospitality of fellow Boholanos but also the sun, sea and sun of Panglao Island.

The girls were in the province for a quick tour around the Chocolate Hills & other tourist spots, do their swimsuit & video shoot and prepare for the swimsuit competition.

The girls were amazed with the beauty and splendor of Bohol especially the white sands of Alona Beach in Panglao, Bohol. 

Even before they left for the grand coronation night to be staged in Manila a couple of days from now, they have posted in FB, Twitter and Instagram about their Bohol visit!
