She is Glyssa Bingas Perez who represented the Visayan Association of Australia Inc. in the said pageant. According to her brother Gabe Perez, their Bohol roots are courtesy of their mom whose maternal side is related with the Gonzagas of San Carlos, Danao, Bohol.

The gorgeous Glyssa who stands 5’ 6” tall also won the Best in Filipiniana, Best in Swimsuit and Best in Evening Gown special awards.
Will Glyssa do an Eloise Gonzales? You see, Elouise is also an Australia- based Boholana who came home to represent Sagbayan in the 2002 Miss Bohol Pageant where she eventually finished as 2nd Runner Up to Cherry Mae Bacarro of Dimiao.
Let’s see what will happen in the next few months considering that two major pageants are coming up this July: Miss Bohol 2015 and Miss Sandugo International 2015
