Miss Bohol Winners: 80's and 90's Decades

1983 Miss Young BoholMiss Tagbilaran City Marcelina Marcel Orimaco Gatal

The 1983 pageant was fittingly named Miss Young Bohol because it was organized by KB Bohol Provincial Federation ( Kabataang Barangay, the precursor of Sangguniang Kabataan) under its Prov'l Chair Hon. Edgar Chatto.

It holds the record of having the most number of candidates who competed on the same stage on pageant night with a total of 37 girls from around Bohol. 

Her Court of Honor:

1st RU Miss Carmen Binangbang
2nd RU Miss Dimiao Josephine Joy Tago

1986 Miss Bohol
Miss Tagbilaran City Gemma Manding

Year 1986 was a transition period for the Philippines for it was the year of the EDSA People Power Phenomenon and the time when the Yellow Fever captivated the whole country. 

Then Bohol OIC Governor Victor de las Serna approved the holding of a Miss Bohol pageant that would start from the barangay level to really pick the most beautiful Boholana for that year.

The statuesque and very sophisticated Gemma Manding of Tagbilaran City won in a province- wide beauty search that was participated in by all municipalities and the city in a pageant that had weekly elimination rounds prior to the grand coronation night.

Miss Manding stood out and outshone all the other girls during the pageant night and swept almost all the special titles and corporate awards

Gemma has maintained her regal bearing and retained the gorgeous looks and whistle- bait figure that won for her the Miss Bohol crown in 1986

I got the thrill of my life when the beautiful Gemma Manding, Miss Bohol 1986, said YES to my request for a souvenir photo

1988 Mutya sa Bohol
Miss Guindulman Elizabeth Mumar Anana

Guindulman, known as the Queen Town of Eastern Bohol, affirmed its status as home to some of Bohol's most beautiful women when its bet, Elizabeth Mumar Anana, was proclaimed Mutya sa Bohol and was also adjudged Best in Swimsuit and Best in Gown

The 1988 edition was highly- anticipated for the swimsuit would be making its debut in the Miss Bohol pageant that year.

Elizabeth, a 22 year old business management student of the University of San Carlos set temperatures rising when she sashayed onstage in a high- cut one- piece swimsuit. 

Elizabeth went on to represent the province in the nationwide search for Miss Philippine Red Cross 1988, a popularity & personality tilt that was telecast over RPN 9 

Mestiza beauty Elizabeth Mumar Anana gave Guindulman its first and only Miss Bohol crown after a succession of runners up and finalists

TRIVIA: Did you know that Elizabeth dyed her dark brown hair to black just to look less mestiza? According to her mom, Felicitas Anana, being too mestiza during the 80's made a candidate's chances of winning slimmer.
