A pair of Filipino contestants in new twin beauty pageants in Vietnam have been lauded prior to tonight’s coronation ceremony.
Michael Angelo Toledo and Kristel Galang, both from the Philippines, were named “Best in Sports Wear” in an earlier preliminary competition for the Mister and Miss Fitness Supermodel World.
In the male category, Toledo finished ahead of the representatives from the host nation, Vietnam, and neighboring Thailand, who placed second and third, respectively.
In the female division, Galang finished ahead of the Chinese Taipei and Laos delegates, who placed second and third, respectively.
Toledo also placed third in the masculine category of the national costume competition, wearing a contemporary Lapu-Lapu costume designed by Allan Camarin Dela Fuente. The delegate hails from Cebu province.
Toledo earned the opportunity to represent the Philippines in the Mister Fitness Supermodel World pageant by being named one of the titleholders in the ninth Misters of Filipinas pageant, which was conducted in October of last year.
The organizer of the Misters of Filipinas pageant, Prime Event Productions Philippines (PEPPS) Foundation Inc., appointed Galang, an event presenter and actress, to be Toledo’s companion and represent the country in the Miss Fitness Supermodel World pageant.
