MANILA, Philippines – Miss World Philippines finds a new home in TV5 as it partners with the most aggressive broadcast network in the country.

Following the success of the first Miss World Philippines last year and the first runner-up finish of Gwendoline Ruais at the Miss World pageant held in London, England, the prestigious pageant continues to move forward for a bigger and more meaningful celebration of Beauty with a Purpose, underscoring the advocacy of Miss World in championing the cause of marginalized women and children.

Now that TV5 is its official media partner, Miss World Philippines is set to bring together the most beautiful Filipinas to give them a memorable and once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to present to the world the true beauty and brilliance of today’s Filipina.

With beauty and wellness guru Cory Quirino at the helm, Miss World Philippines begins its nationwide search for candidates who possess the outstanding qualities of a future beauty queen that will give the country a winning chance to claim the Miss World crown which has long eluded the Philippines for 61 years.

This year, the stage is set for the upcoming Miss World Pageant on Aug. 16 in Ordos, Inner Mongolia China where more than 113 candidates from all over the world will compete for the crown that will proclaim the winner as the most beautiful woman in the world.

Present at the contract signing were TV5 president and CEO lawyer Ray Espinosa and CQ Global Quest, Inc. chair and CEO and Miss World Philippines 2012 Pageant director Cory Quirino.

“We are happy to welcome Miss World Philippines to TV5 and we will be equally proud of the candidates who will join this year’s pageant as well as our future Miss World Philippines who will vie for the Miss World crown,” Espinosa said.

Quirino stated, “Miss World Philippines is pleased to have found a new home in TV5 which secures the future of this prestigious pageant and strengthens the hope of every Filipina who holds the dream of becoming a beauty queen.”

TV5 will air the Miss World Philippines Pageant live from the Manila Hotel in late June.  The much-anticipated Miss World Pageant in Inner Mongolia, China will also be broadcast live via TV5 in August.
