Another season of beauty and responsibility is underway as Miss Earth marks 18 years of promoting environmental awareness with 90 delegates from across the world compete for the prestigious title.
Prior to the grand coronation night, the delegates are scheduled to visit various destinations in the Philippines promoting environmental awareness.
“They will also visit various schools in line with Miss Earth’s mission to educate the youth on the importance of taking care of the environment,” says
Carousel Executive vice president Lorraine Schuck during the press presentation for the Miss Earth 2018 candidates at a hotel in Manila last Thursday.
She adds: “It is going to be another busy year for us. It is really quite tiring with all that traveling and pre-pageant activities, but we cannot sidestep the organization’s main focus, which is to educate and get the public involved in the global movement to save the planet.”
Also included in their hectic itinerary are the much-talked-about preliminary judging in beauty and poise, figure, and intelligence and environmental awareness which will be streamed live on Miss Earth’s official Facebook page and YouTube channel.
Apart from the environmental activities of the delegates, Carousel’s president Ramon Monzon said, “Preparation is likewise in full swing for the goddess-themed finals night. Hall of Famer journalist James Deakin makes a comeback to do hosting chores, while Grammy-nominated Brian McKnight will be the guest performer. The final stage will be more or less 80 percent made of recycled materials.”
The two-hour grand coronation night will be held at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City on November 3. It will be telecast live on FOXlife at 8 p.m. and on TV networks of participating countries. The local Philippine airing will be on Sunday, Nov. 4, 10:30 p.m. on GMA 7.
