Miss South Africa wagi sa Queen of Wemsap
Si Miss South Africa ang tinanghal na Queen of Wemsap Universe, na ginanap sa Aliw Theatre, last Wednesday night.
Biglang yaman agad si Miss South Africa dahil tumanggap nga siya ng P500,000.
Wagi naman bilang Ms. Supranational si Miss Uruguay, na tumanggap ng P25,000.
Tinanghal na Miss Earth si Miss Thailand na humamig ng P50,000.
Wagi bilang Miss International si Miss Puerto Rico na nakatanggap ng premyong P100,000. At si Miss Mexico ang nanalong Miss World, na may premyong P200,000.
Marami nga ang na-impress sa beauty pageant na ito, dahil feeling nila ay nanonood sila ng Miss Universe talaga. Bongga ang production number, bongga ang mga sinuot na costume na mga kandidata, at siyempre, matindi ang naging kabugan sa question and answer portion.
