Florabel Sakaki is Miss Dauis 2017

Florabel Sakaki, a 17 year old half- Japanese beauty was crowned Miss Dauis 2017 after she outshone 11 other beauties in a glittering two- hour show held at the Dauis Sports Arena last weekend. Aside from the top tiara, Bingag’s lovely bet also swept the swimsuit, evening gown & interview segments.

This year, the pageant committee revised the scoring system. Instead of the usual "back- to- zero" where the finalists start with a clean slate, the finalists' preliminary scores were added to their final round scores and this helped Ms Sakaki clinch the crown  even though she faltered quite a bit in the final Q & A. 
 Ms Bingag, Ms Songculan & Ms Biking await the final announcement
After topping all three areas of judging, Ms. Sakaki already had a commanding lead going into the final round.  Your Roving Eye believes that Miss Dauis will be one of the frontrunners for Miss Bohol 2018. She has the height, the grace & elegance of a queen.
