MUTYA SA TAGBILARAN 2017

A disbelieving 17 year old Bianca Gaviola of Pob 2 burst into tears after being named Mutya sa Tagbilaran 2017 in a glittering fast- paced three  hour coronation night held at the Bohol Wisdom School Gymnasium on April 28. 

Aside from the crown and the honor to represent the city of Tagbilaran in the forthcoming Miss Bohol 2017 Pageant, Ms. Gaviola also clinched four of the 15 specials awards and corporate titles that were also handed out. 

She swept both swimsuit and evening gown competitions and was also named Miss Photogenic and Miss Bohol Tropics.


CANDOR & CHARM
Prior to the final round of interviews where she expounded on the role of technology and the role of God in one’s life, she revealed her eloquence and a maturity beyond her years during her casual chitchat with the pageant emcees when she elucidated on the importance of optimism and how one should downplay pessimism or being negative.

CHEERS TO MUTYA SA TAGBILARAN 2017
A visibly- elated Ms. Jane Censoria Yap, Tagbilaran City First Lady and Mutya 2017 Project Chair expressed her gratitude to everyone who contributed to the resounding success of Mutya sa Tagbilaran 2017. With Ms. Yap at the helm and with the all- out support  of Mayor Baba Yap and the city, the pageant has been given a total make over and in just four years, Mutya sa Tagbilaran has regained its luster & prestige and is one of the most highly- anticipated highlights of the annual Tagbilaran City Saulog celebration.

The revitalized Mutya search that was revived in 2014 after Mayor Baba Yap was elected as city mayor has produced three outstanding winners. 2014 Geraldine Topsnik who was also Miss Bohol 2014 2nd RU and went on to become 1st RU in a national beauty search, 2015 Eda Cimafranca was also Miss Bohol 2015 and 2016 Queenebeth Barcelona is Miss Bohol 2016 1st RU. With her captivating beauty, mesmerizing wit and winsome charm, this year’s newly- crowned Mutya Bianca Gaviola is expected to continue the winning streak of the Tagbilaranon beauty and to be actively involved in promoting the different advocacy projects of the city.
