The municipality of Tubigon celebrated its golden age in pageantry when it’s bet Pauline Amelinckx was crowned Miss Bohol 2017. 

The 21 year old half- Belgian graduated with a Bachelor of Arts International Studies major in European Studies degree last year from Cebu Doctors University. She also scooped five of the 13 special awards namely; Best in Production Number, Darling of the Press, Miss JCI, Best in Swimsuit and Best in Interview.

Miss Amelinckx was in a neck and neck race for the crown with Loon’s Gazini Jordi Ganados from start to finish. The heavy favorite from Loon who eventually finished as 1st RU was also awarded Miss Photogenic, Ramasola Viewers’ Choice, the Darling of the Crowd and Miss Air Asia.

With Tubigon’s Miss Bohol 2017 victory, the town has affirmed its Miss Bohol pageant powerhouse tag which began in 2010 with Amir Sol. A rare back-to- back was achieved in 2011 with the victory of Farah Mian . 2012 1st RU Mariecris Evardo. Tubigon didn’t send a candidate in 2013. In 2014, Jaya Lozano was 3rd RU, 2015 Clarlaine Radoc 2nd RU and 2016 Olive Zoilo 3rd RU
