WHO WILL MAKE THE FIRST CUT?
It’s the final week before the newest environmental advocate of the country will be crowned. Tensions are getting high and expect nerves to be frazzled. Most of the girls are anxiously wondering if they will make the first cut.

The first cut means the top 15 girls who will advance to the final round during the grand coronation. The announcement is done right after the opening dance number & introduction of candidates
HOW ARE THE TOP 15 CHOSEN?
The main bulk of the composition of the semifinalists is usually based on the outcome of the preliminary judging that consists of a closed – door panel/ individual interview where the judges look for environmental quotient, personality, charm & beauty. The girls will undergo this crucial phase of the competition without any make up on their faces.
Your Blogger is very confident that Gayle will ace this part of the judging process. Aside from being a Wordian ( staff member of HNU's campus paper The Word) and gifted with wit & eloquence, the registered nurse has stayed in the US for a couple of years right after college so I am pretty sure it will be a walk in the park for Bohol's bet.
Here’s a more interesting detail on the judging process: Did you know that a small percentage of the girls’ composite scores will come from their chaperones’ evaluation sheets? It means looking at the girls’ attitude, punctuality & optimism.
We have to understand that joining a major beauty pageant is akin to applying for a job. In this case, to be Miss Philippines Earth is not only to be the country’s official bet to Miss Earth but most importantly, to be an effective spokesperson on environmental advocacies and raising awareness for environmental issues.
Who will make this year’s top 15? Who will be Miss Philippines Earth 2015? Let’s find out this Sunday, May 31 at the Mall of Asia Arena. It will be telecast live over ABS CBN Channel 2
