Catarman lass wins 3rd runner-up in Miss Supranational 2012
CATARMAN, Northern Samar – A beauteous young lady from this town has just won as third runner-up in the Miss Supranational 2012, an international beauty pageant held last September 14 (September 15 Philippine time) in Warsaw, Poland.
Twenty year old Miss Elaine Kay Moll, second child of Tess Adorable Tancio, is studying at the National University and resides with her mom in Barangay Dalakit in Catarman. Competing against 49 other lovely candidates from different countries, Elaine represented the Philippines in the said competition after winning as first runner-up in this year’s Binibining Pilipinas pageant last July.
Elaine’s family in Catarman is extremely happy and proud of her latest success. Her uncle, Senior Board Member Jojo Layon, said they were hopeful but actually did not expect that she would emerge as a winner.
“We watched the competition and waited for the results until 3 in the morning; we did not expect as we were thinking that the judges were in the look for Italian beauties…siguro it was her height that gave her the edge over the other contestants,” said Board Member Layon.
Layon said this is a very nice birthday gift for Elaine, who is turning 21 this September 20.
Standing 5’11, morena and with a vital statistics of 36-24-36, Elaine started joining beauty contests when she was 19. Her first beauty pageant was the Miss Catarman 2010 contest where she placed as third runner-up. A year after, she entered the Miss World Philippines competition where she finished as a semi-finalist.
This year, Elaine joined the Binibining Pilipinas pageant and won as first runner-up.
Miss Ekaterina Buraya of Belarus won the title as 2012 Miss Supranational, while Miss Thailand Nanthawan Wannachutha was awarded 1st runner-up. Czech Republic’s Michaela Dihlová and Ecuador’s Sulay Castillo were named 2nd and 4th runner-up, respectively.
Founded in 2009, the Miss Supranational competition is said to be third in rank among the five global major beauty pageants; the others being the Miss Universe (1st), the Miss World (2nd), Miss International (4th) and Miss Earth (5th). (Rachel V. Arnaiz)
