And The Top 20 Finalists Are...

The results are out! And I'm not talking about the recently concluded Miss Universe 2011 here. It's the much-awaited SM Department Store Women's Plus Model Search I blogged about a month ago. Remember how delighted I was that the world seemed to be fast becoming open and accepting to extra seksi women?

Let's give the top 20 finalists a big hand!

What's next, you ask? Them Top 20 will be interviewed by the judges, namely Mercedes Prieto, Christine Cang Sapnu and Alyanna Martinez. From 20, it will be trimmed down to 8 pleasing, confident, articulate and outgoing candidates. These 8 lucky winners will find themselves busy campaigning for your "likes" on Style Watch's gallery of beautiful hopefuls. Per SM's criteria, registered Facebook users of any age and gender can vote AND can vote up to 3 times per day per Facebook Username/Email Address. Make sure to support your favorite candidate!


So this is the part where I burst into tears for being unable to make it, eh? Hardly! It may be effortlessly easy for most people to be disappointed and bitter about circumstances that do not favor them, but how can I sulk in one corner when I know there are about 500 plus size women who joined this invitation to showcase their inner and outer beauties? This is an astounding proof that more Pinays are getting into the self-love and body acceptance revolution. Also, that's like an assurance that I will never run out of real-life goddesses to feature in my humble virtual abode. That's a reason to celebrate!

I would like to end this entry with words of love and gratitude for my friends who saw my inner light and pushed me to join this contest. I know I will always be a winner in your eyes. Have I thanked you enough? Tell me how exactly.


  1. Hi, Rodel! Thanks for your vote of confidence. It's not meant to be, that's all. That includes the free trip to Bangkok.

    Wait, where's my postcard from Bangkok? Humph!
