Entertainment News Portal had the chance to cover the final screening of Miss World Philippines today, August 15, at House Manila. The media, friends and supporters of the applicants could hear the happenings inside the screening room though we are only adjacent to the venue.
According to Bessie Bessana, 65 girls submitted their application but only 59 actually showed up. The girls are grouped into 5 where they face the screening committee composed of reigning Miss World Philippines queens, officials and executive of Miss World Philippines and Resort World Manila. Each girl would have to introduce themselves stating their names, background or advocacy in one minute. After that, they would answer the questions thrown by the screening committee.
