Miss Bohol Tourism 1977: Antonette Biloy

Antonette during her college days 

Your Roving Eye had the most pleasant surprise of his life last July 21, 2017 during Jun Biloy & Shirmie Cuadra’s wedding when he finally met one of DWCT’s certified campus headturners during the late 70’s, Antonette Biloy. 

Antonette happens to be the groom’s older sibling.

For pageant historians and DWCT old- timers, Antonette Biloy represented the then DWCT (Divine Word College- Tagbilaran) now HNU (Holy Name University) in the 1977 Most Beautiful Boholana Pageant. 


The said beauty title was one of the many appellations that the Miss Bohol pageant adopted during its 91 year history. Antoniette was eventually named the 1977 Miss Bohol- Tourism (equivalent to 1st Runner Up) to Miss Tagbilaran City, Ellen Campbell.

It has been exactly 40 years when she competed in the 1977 edition of Miss Bohol and Antoniette still looks as lovely as the day represented her school in the province- wide pageant.  I was so glad and relieved that she graciously accepted my request for a short interview and a quick photo opp.

She has been based in Manila for quite some time now and has been blessed with three girls and a boy who are all professionals now. A CPA by profession, she was connected with the finance department of a big private company.
