miss tourism global 1st runner up


LINGAYEN, Pangasinan — Governor Amado I. Espino, III takes pride of the recent feats of lasses and gentlemen from Pangasinan for their spectacular performances in recent international beauty contests.


In a facebook post via pangasinan.gov.ph, Gov. Espino congratulated Bea Theresa Maynigo from Calasiao town who represented the Philippines and won as 1st runner-up in the Miss Tourism Global which was held on July 7 in Shandong, China.


Maynigo joined the ranks of equally beautiful, smart, and talented young ladies from other countries like Miss Romania who bagged the title, along with runners-up: Miss Venezuela (2nd runner-up), Miss Russia (3rd runner-up), and Miss Korea (4th runner-up).


Extolling Maynigo as a “source of inspiration to her fellow Pangasinense youth”, Governor Espino likewise congratulates other Pangasinense beauty queens and kings who won in recent international beauty contests.


These include: Kyle Abrio of Pozorrubio (International Teens of Year 1st runner-up; held in Pattaya, Thailand on July 2), Jealyn Zuno of Rosales (Miss Asia Pacific Princess 1st runner-up; held in Bangkok, Thailand on July 6) and John Christopher Madarang of Urdaneta City (Mr. Asia Pacific Prince 2nd runner-up).
It can be recalled that last March, Dagupan City resident Gerina Chanel Ancheta won the Miss Asian International title in Bangkok, Thailand.


Meanwhile, Gov. Espino also congratulated another titlist from Calasiao town who won the first-ever Mr. Continental International Philippines crown.


Nineteen year-old Kurt Michael Paragna-Primicias, a business administration student at Pangasinan State University, paid a courtesy call on the governor on July 9 at the Urduja House in Lingayen.


Aside from bagging the title, Primicias, who won the Mr. Northern Philippines title prior to the national finals, also received the following special awards: best in swimwear, Mr. Flourish Skin, Darling of the Press, Star Model of the Night, Mr. Psalmstre by Placenta, Mr. SKD Academy, and Montage Skin Aesthetic (runner-up).


Primicias is set to compete for Mr. Continental International on November.
