Megan Young won as Miss World Philippines 2013 in the coronation night held at the Solaire Resort and Casino in Pasay City on August 18. Megan, 23 years old and representing Olongapo City will be the Philippine rep to the Miss World 2013 pageant which will be held in Indonesia next month (already!). Megan Young is now one of the frontrunners in the Miss World pageant.
Megan Young won numerous other special awards and cash prizes including the coveted 1 million pesos for winning the title. Also included in her winning Miss World PH 2013 is a 1-year-contract with GMA-7 but Megan Young is a Star Magic talent of its rival ABS-CBN. Miss World Philippines coronation night was aired on GMA-7 to substantial (even distasteful? there is a rule limiting the ad load vis a vis to the actual show?). The pageant dragged on until 2 AM on TV.
Megan joined Miss World Philippines instead after being rejected in Binibining Pilipinas 2013 apparently due to her racy pictorial in Rouge Magazine. But Megan Young in interviews said she had always wanted to join Miss World Philippines. Present and in full cheering mode is Megan’s rumored boyfriend Mikael Daez along with Megan’s sister Laureen Young and their other celebrity friends.
Giving Megan the scare is First Princess Janicel Lubina representing Palawan, and is the reigning Miss Bikini Philippines 2013. She won Best In Swimsuit and Miss Photogenic. 2nd Princess is a surprise winner in Zahra Saldua, who also won Miss Friendship and Miss Pantene. Third Princess is Bianca Paz who also won Miss Redoxfat. Fourth Princess is Omarie Linn Osuna who messed up her final interview question by flattering herself to the visible dismay of the judges.

Best in Fashion Runway
Miss Sports by FILA
Miss Bold and Glamorous by Revlon
Miss Bench Body
