3 Pinays Vie for the Miss Supranational 2013 Beauty Title!
The Miss Universe 2013 is not the only international pageant that will be featuring at least 3 Pinay contestants. Miss Supranational 2013 will also have a strong Filipino presence with 3 Pinays (to date) as well! They say that “three is a charm,” and I’m hoping that’s true for our contestants in both pageants.
And now, lets meet all 3 charmers who are set to compete in Miss Supranational 2013:
1) Mutya Johanna Datul – representing The Philippines.
On April 14,2013 Bb.Pilipinas crowned Bb. #39 Mutya Datul as Miss Supranational Philippines 2013. The 5 ‘8″ lass from Santa Maria Isabela was seen previously in Mutya ng Pilipinas 2012 where she won several special awards and finished as a semi-Finalist. It was disappointing though for ABQ who believed Mutya deserved one of the two crowns. But, that’s all water under the bridge now that she’s going to to compete for the Supranational crown in Minsk, Belarus this September (2013).
2) Suzette Hernandez – Representing Canada
Suzette Hernandez is of Batangas stock and like Mutya Datul is a product of Mutya ng Pilipinas. She was 1st Runner up at the said pageant in 2010 and a favorite of ABQ. In 2011, she competed in Bb. Pilipinas but was unplaced. Then in 2012 she competed in the Miss Universe Canada pageant and entered the Top 12 alongside the controversial transsexual contestant, Jenna Talackova.
This year Suzette was appointed Miss Supranational Canada 2013. The
22-26-year-old business student stands at 5’9″, is a ramp model and studies at the University of British Columbia.
3) Marie Virgenia Cecilie Molo Peter – representing Norway
Just like the two beauties above, Marie Molo Peter is a Bb Pilipinas product. She competed in the said pageant as Bb. #11 in the year 2012 but was unplaced. When she returned to Norway she found better luck after joining the Miss Universe Norway 2012 pageant; Marie made it as 2nd Runner up giving her the right to represent Norway in the Miss Humanity International 2012 pageant in Barbados.
In an interesting twist of events, Marie Molo Peter ended up competing against her former Bb. Pilipinas 2012 roommate Ayelee Dasalla the Humanity pageant. Some websites claim that Marie Peter ended up not competing in Miss Humanity but according to a text message to me from Ayelee Dasalla, Marie was there and it was a great reunion for both of them!

Now, Marie Peter, who is 22 years old, will represent Norway in the Miss Supranational 2013 pageant. She stands 5’8½” (altho some sites say she is 5’7″). She was born in Kalibo, Aklan to a Filipina Mom and Norwegian-German Dad. When she was 7, they all moved to Norway but she remains proud of her Filipino heritage.
Best of luck to all our Pinay beauty queens!
