I'm sorry, but damn! Carlene Aguilar is FINE! I'm telling you, Carlene Aguilar, the Philippines' bet to the Miss World 2005 pageant in Sanya, China, is really one of the odds-on ladies to beat. Come on, look at these pics!
Tall and statuesque!
Here's praying she doesn't choke like Miriam Quiambao at the Miss Universe pageant a few years ago. Tsk tsk.
We can help Carlene by voting. I'll post soon on how to vote for this year's pageant. Meanwhile, I think - as one of the two things that unites Filipinos, aside from boxing champions - we can help raise our national pride out of its doldrums by praying for Carlene. Come on, folks, show this country's superblessed in this regard.
Update 1: Paddy Power has Carlene winning at 8-1 odds.
