Initial disclaimer: no, there are no closet queens on this website. LOL We just like rooting for Filipino candidates, no matter which competition.
That being said in all defensiveness and tongue-in-cheek, let's move on to the point of this post. Ms. Philippines Carlene Aguilar, the Philippine candidate to the Miss World 2005 beauty pageant and one of the early favorites in Miss World, is in the running for another competition on Global Beauties.
Miss Cyber Press World 2005 is a mini-competition, a fantasy competition, if you will, that has adopted FIFA'S dispute system (in tribute to the World Cup). After two qualifying rounds of voting with the participation of over 20 webmasters, 32 candidates from Miss World 2005 made it to the next round. Eight groups of four make up the first round of competition.
Bb. Pilipinas-World and Miss World Philippine candidate Aguilar is in Group D, pit against three strong contenders: Miss Albania Suada Sherifaj, a towering beauty at 6"1; Colombian beauty Erika Queribin, and fellow early favorite Sofia Bruscoli. A strong group, this Group D. It's a shame only one will make it to the next round in the fantasy pageant Miss Cyber Press World 2005. Here's hoping Carlene Aguilar makes it through!
Don't forget to vote for her for Miss World 2005 by sending SMS "MW 114" to 2441 (Smart) or 2345 (Globe)!
In related news, it appears that Miss Philippines Carlene Aguilar's odds in Miss World are now very, very strong. All bookmakers listed on GlobalBeauties.com now have her unanimous as #1, save for Intertops, which tie her at #1 with Italy and Namibia, and Sportsbook, which ties her at #1 with Italy! Praise God! Go, Carlene!
Update: Noelle says "Star World is also showing commercials for Vote for Me, and they have another number you can text votes to. Type "MW 114" and send to 2929. This is a service provided by Chikka.com. You can also download wallpapers by sending "MW MMS114" to 2929 (and this adds 10 votes to Carlene's total)." All you people with MMS phones, you know what to do!
