2012 Miss Bohol Sandugo: Idy Casenas Cagas


during the 2008 Miss Jagna Pageant
Idy Casenas Cagas' journey to the Miss Bohol Sandugo crown started on September 2008 when she was crowned Miss Jagna that year but instead of going to the annual pageant that serves as the most glamorous highlight of the Sandugo Festival, she was informed at the last minute that she would instead represent the town in the 2009 Miss Bohol International Pageant

Idy would later be declared as Best in Filipiniana for her showstopping and elegant way of carrying her evening gown but to everyone's shock, She and Mylene Pedroso, University of Bohol's bet in the same pageant and who was also Best in Swmsuit and Miss Talent didn't advance to the Final Round. 

It was proof that pageants can be unpredictable at times

Anyway, our paths crossed during the Miss Pilar Pageant on December 2011 where I was the host and she was a judge. 

I told her that she should join the Miss Bohol Sandugo 2012 Pageant for she had what it takes to be a queen and perhaps, join the hallowed list of Jagnaanon beauties that have won the Miss Bohol Sadugo crown. 

She took my advice to heart, joined the pageant and the rest, as they say, is pageant history!

SWIMSUIT COMPETITION HIGHLIGHTS:

As in any beauty competition, the Swimsuit Competition is the most anticipated segment especially for the males. 

This is where the judges look for beauty & symmetry of the face, figure & legs. Confidence is very important also along with physical fitness & presentation skills. 

To put it simply, the judges and audience alike look for the candidate  who looks the hottest and has the best overall impression

EVENING GOWN HIGHLIGHTS

The Evening Gown Competition that had Silver as the color motif, proved to be the most elegant part of the pageant. This is where the elegance, the regal bearing and the sophistication of candidates shine through. Determining Best in Evening Gown was based on class & elegance, fashion flair, poise & charm and the overall impression. 

I agree that the recipient of the Best in Gown award should be chosen based on how well she carried the gown and not the other way around although the choice of gown can also make or break a candidate's chances in the pageant

MS IDY CAGAS' FINAL QUESTION : 

Who do you think is more powerful? Is it man or woman? Why? 

HER ANSWER: 

There is no need to compare each other because God created men and women to be equal and to complement each other's incompleteness.  There are things that a woman can do that a man can't, and there are things that a man can do that a woman can't.
