Before the Announcement
Miss Dauis Gretchen Cimafranca who placed 3rd in Festival Costume, 5th in Sports Wear & 4th in Sports Interpretation would have made it in the winners’ circle were it not for problems encountered in the Opening Number.

She struggled in her heavy and elaborately- designed costume that even got snagged in the wires on the stage thus was unable to really perform during the production number.  She eventually placed 6th overall, just a breath away from the Top Five
