Mutya Datul of the Philippines Wins Miss Supranational 2013!
Looks like Mutya Datul’s Salagubang Walk ruled the stage in Minsk Belarus! The “simple probinsyana who gets tongue-tied in front of people” has overcome and is now the very first Filipina to ever win the Miss Supranational title!
It’s a dream-come-true for the Isabella beauty who has been joining pageants just to raise funds for her ill mother. With her victory in Europe, Mutya now has $25,000 USD to bring home. ABQ also hopes that this will be the start of a modelling career in Europe for the gorgeous 21-year-old babe.
Aside from the crown, Mutya Datul also won Miss Personality, entered the Top 10 of Miss Talent and Top 8 of Miss Internet.
Two other Filipinas in the pageant representing other countries also did well: Suzette Hernandez wore the Canadian sash; she entered the Top 20 of the semi-finals while Marie Molo Peter of Norway was Miss Internet 3rd Runner-up.
The Philippines has been excelling in the Miss Supranational. Last year, our representative Elaine Kay Moll won 3rd Runner-up in the international pageant. And now, with Mutya Datul’s win, our country’s fame as a pageant powerhouse continues to rise!
Here’s the text I received from Tessa Mangahas, PR Head of Bb Pilipinas Charities:
Binibining Pilipinas Charities Inc. is overjoyed at the victory of the newly crowned Miss Supranational 2013 Mutya Johanna Datul in the pageant held at Minsk Belarus. Mutya bested more than 80 of the loveliest women from all over the world, radiating the beauty, confidence, grace and intelligence of the Filipina. She has brought immense honor to the Philippines and we are looking forward to a rousing welcome for our very first Miss Supranational on Monday, September 9. BPCI would also like to thank all those who have supported Mutya in her journey to the crown.
