Gabon’s Jennifer Ondo: 3rd Miss Universe 2013 Contestant with Filipino Roots!
The Pinay is truly gorgeous and global!
NOTE: It seems that the story of Jennifer Ondon being half Filipina is an exaggeration. Her parents are from Gabon, however she does admit she has some Filipino roots but hasn’t specified exactly how. Here is a screen shot of the Tweet she sent in reply to my query:
Aside from the current Miss Universe Philippines Ariella “Ara” Arida and Miss Canada Universe 2013 Riza Santos (a Canadian-bred Filipina), another Pinoy pride, Miss Gabon 2013 Ruth Jennifer Ondo, will be competing in Miss Universe 2013! Ruth Jennifer Ondo’s mother is a Filipina and her Father is Gabonese.
After checking out the online photos of the Fil-Gabonese beauty, ABQ is pleased to say that this blog is supporting her not just because of her Filipino connection but because of her stunning Venus Raj-ian features, her towering 5’11.5 frame and her long mermaid curves. With Jennifer Ondo in the fray we now have 3 Pinays set to compete in the 62nd Edition of the Miss Universe Pageant later this year. But that number could increase because there are at least 20 countries who have yet to select their MU 2013 representatives. Its the second time that Gabon, a French Colony in Western Africa, will be sending a send Half-Pinay-Half Gabonese to an international pageant. In 2012, Channa Divouvi, Miss Gabon first runner-up represented the nation in both the 2012 Miss International and Miss Universe Beauty Pageants. -With contribution from ABQ correspondent Ronald Villamor, Davao City
