Meet The Team Behind Miss Universe Philippines
As the decade ends, it is time for Binibining Pilipinas to bid adieu to the Miss Universe franchise. The news of Binibining Pilipinas renouncing the Miss Universe Philippines franchise erupted as a volcano in the pageant industry. Led under the supervision of Stella Araneta, Binibining Pilipinas produced four Filipino Miss Universe alongside nine runners up and ten semi-finalists at the Miss Universe pageant. The country became a powerhouse at the said pageant while it continued its ten years placement streak, a feat which many powerhouse countries fail to achieve.
However, subsequent to many speculations few weeks ago until it was made official, Binibining Pilipinas publicly announced that the Miss Universe franchise no longer belongs to them. Soon the new Miss Universe Philippines Organization announced that the newly shortlisted contestants will be mentored by none other than Shamcey Supsup Lee, who will now serve as the National Director of the Miss Universe Philippines pageant and will begin her quest to find Miss Universe Philippines 2020 who shall be representing the Philippines at Miss Universe 2020 pageant. Shamcey Supsup was crowned as Miss Universe Philippines by Binibining Pilipinas Organization in 2011 and eventually finished as the third runner up at Miss Universe 2011.
The Miss Universe Philippines Organization will also witness the involvement of Albert Andrada, who will be serving as the Design Council Head, Jonas Gaffud , who will take the charge of Creative Director and Lia Ramos, who will serve as the Head of Women Empowerment Committee and Charity, looking after the advocacy of the delegates. They will be joined by Atty. Nad Bronce, who will be serving as the Head of Legal Affairs alongside Mario Garcia, who takes the charge of Business Development & Marketing Head.
Beginning it’s new venture, the Miss Universe Philippines Organization took over the social media handle to express, “The Miss Universe Organization is thrilled to announce its partnership with the Miss Universe Philippines Organization – a fresh team that will lead the country towards its continued quest to share the beauty and grace of the Filipina to the rest of the world,” the post on MUP Facebook page read. Rooted in the same strong foundations that have earned the country title after title in the past half century, the Miss Universe Philippines Organization is poised to bring the Miss Universe franchise to greater heights.”
