Judiel Israel is Anyag sa Tubigon 2016

Twenty year old Judiel Israel of Tinangnan expressed shock & disbelief when she was proclaimed as the 2016 Anyag sa Tubigon.  

Her reaction was understandable for she was not the frontrunner even if she was one of the prettiest & the tallest girls in the batch. The BS HRM graduate has to put on hold her immediate plans to pursue a career in the hotel industry abroad.

It was a most spectacular & grand production of Anyag sa Tubigon 2016 from the energetic & fun opening number up to the thrilling announcement of winners. This year’s Anyag sa Tubigon spotlighted the 12 fabulous finalists and gave homage to the town’s magnificent aquatic resources & its bounty. 

The production’s clever use of three huge LED walls that displayed not only the visually stunning computer graphics but also the close up images of the ladies drew applause & cheers from the audience.

The absence of the requisite swimsuit segment makes Anyag sa Tubigon Pageant uniquely different from the other municipal searches in Bohol. According to Sir Jason Barba Martinote, the absence of the swimsuit portion is in deference to the event’s reason for its being which is the fiesta in honor of San Isidro de Labrador.

After their opening dance number where they also introduced themselves with pre- taped voice overs, the 12 candidates competed in the Elmer de Venancio fun wear & evening gown segments and underwent the   one- on- one onstage personality interviews.

Hosting the pageant were ABS CBN Cebu talent Nimrod Cabigas & Anyag sa Tubigon 2010 & Miss Bohol 2011 Farah Faye Mian. Your Roving Eye was invited to co- host the Anyag pageant specifically to handle the Q & A segments. Dennis Balbero directed the fast- paced & exciting two hour show that gave the spotlight to the 12 candidates. 

After the fun wear, evening gowns & casual interviews, the field was then whittled down to the final five who answered the same final question “Beauty queens come & go. If you will be crowned as Anyag sa Tubigon 2016, how do you want to be remembered during your year of reign?”
