Fil-Australian model named Miss World Philippines 2016

This year’s Miss World Philippines title was awarded to Filipino-Australian model Catriona Elisa Gray, who bested 24 other beauties last Sunday, October 2.

The 22-year-old beauty is also a singer and a blogger from Albay, Bicol.

Catriona also brought home several of the special awards including Best in Evening Gown, Best in Swimsuit, Best in Fashion Runway and Best in Talent.

Several sponsors also chose Catriona to be their brand ambassador namely, Miss Figlia, Miss FIG-Image Gateway, Miss Folded & Hung, Miss Hannah, Miss Manila Hotel and Miss Organique.  Miss World Philippines 2015 Hillarie Parungao passed her crown on to Catriona.

Catriona will represent the Philippines in the upcoming Miss World 2016 on December 16 in Washington, D.C.

Joining Catriona in her court are:  First Princess Arienne Louise Braga Calingo, Second Princess Ivanna Kamil Suficiencia Pacis, Third Princess Marah Munoz, and Fourth Princess Sandra Raymundo Lemonon.


Now it can be said:  The biological father of Andi Eigenmann’s daughter (Ellie) is actor Jake Ejercito.

After many years of doubts, rumors and speculation, Andi’s sister, Max Eigenmann, spilled the beans in an episode of the radio program, “Good Times With Mo.”

“They did a (DNA) test…Yeah, he’s (Jake) the dad,” Max told DJ Mo Twister.

Kapamilya actor Albie Casino, who was Andi’s ex-boyfriend, said that he felt relieved after an alleged DNA test revealed that he’s not Ellie’s real father.  The actress, however, denied that such test happened.

In a statement released last Friday, September 30, the “Camp Sawi” star asked the public to put her daughter’s paternity issue to rest.  According to her, her main goal is to protect Ellie’s privacy.

“Although she was born into a showbiz family, as a mother, I would like to shield her from the intrigues and gossip that are part of the industry.  Growing up, Ellie knew who her father was and he has been there for her, and that’s all that matter,”  the statement said.  “I hope this will put the issue to rest, out of concern for my very young daughter.  I’m requesting everyone to respect the privacy of Ellie.”
