Miss Dagupan Wins Miss Beauche International 2013

TWENTY FOUR LOVELIES

Twenty- four lovely ladies from all over the Philippines vied for the first ever Miss Beauche International Pageant held at the Grand Ballroom of Solaire Resorts and Casino last December 14, 2013 as highlight of Beauche International's 4th Annual National Sales Assembly

In the end, it was the beauteous and brainy Miss Dagupan Anne Mabel D. Ubando who clinched the crown after her very smart and witty reply to the question "How would you describe the sunset to a blind person?" 

WIT AND BRILLIANCE

Before answering the question, she asked" Is the blindness acquired or inborn?" It was more than enough to bring the house down. It was reminiscent of Charlene Gonzales' "high tide or low tide" response to 1994 Miss Universe emcee Bob Goen's "How many islands does the Philippines have?"

Miss Dagupan started first with inborn blindness: I'm not really sure how she answered it but I believe she mentioned something about feelings and emotions. With acquired blindness, she said the sunset is still a sight to behold with the usual combination of red, yellow and orange. She would assure the blind person that the sunset is still the same as it was yesterday, today and would still be the same tomorrow.

FABULOUS PRIZES

Aside from the P100,00.00 cash prize, the newly- crowned Miss Beauche International won an assortment of prizes and gift packs. She will also be the product endorser and spokesperson for Beauche for an entire year

She also topped both the Swimsuit & Evening Gown Competitions.
