The spotlight will now move to the beauties from Duero & Danao. They are opposites as far as temperament, looks & background are concerned. One hails from the eastern coast of Bohol while the other traces her roots to the central part of Bohol. Let’s get to know these beauties a little better.
Candidate #11 Miss Duero Karen Jane Ubaub Ilagan, 20 years old, is a graduating BS Accountancy student. She is not only a Dean’s Lister but also the President of her school’s Junior Philippine Institute of Accountants. She graduated Class Valedictorian during elementary and Class Salutatorian during her high school graduation.
The 5’5’’ beauty who also possesses an impressive singing voice is a chameleon when it comes to her personal style & fashion sense. She was sweetness personified in her Chris Ramasola glamshot and vivacious and sultry during the swimsuit photo shoot.
Passing the CPA board examinations and landing a good job are her main priorities right after she graduates early next year.

Candidate #12 Miss Danao Glyssa Leiann Bingas Perez, 21 years old, graduated with a BS Commerce degree major in Finance. During her college days in Australia where she spent her growing up years, she was awarded for the Best Endeavor in Finance 2015.
Beauty runs in her bloodline and in fact, she and reigning 2016 Miss Universe Philippines Maxine Perez Medina are first cousins. She was crowned the 2014 Miss Philippines Australia where she represented the Visayas Association of Australia Inc.. In the same pageant, she also won the Best in Filipiniana, Best in Swimsuit and Best in Evening Gown special awards.
Definitely one of the most polished and most prepared among the girls, she is fulfilling her mom Yolie Bingas Perez’ wish to have her represent her hometown of Danao in the Miss Bohol Pageant.
If she wins the Miss Bohol crown, she hopes to be given the chance to bring a voice in raising the awareness on breast cancer among Boholanas. The advocacy is closest to her heart for it has hit home and the main reason why her Australia- based mom who is undergoing chemotherapy cannot make it for the for the grand coronation.
PAGEANT DATE: July 17, Sunday, 8 pm, Bohol Wisdom Gymnasium, Tagbilaran City.
