Miss Grand Philippines pageant officially launched

Miss Grand Philippines, the first national competition exclusively for Miss Grand International after leaving Binibining Pilipinas, was officially launched in a press conference held on Thursday, November 24 at Hilton Manila.

Attending the event were the MGI executives, reigning queen Isabella Menin of Brazil and her court of runners-up from Indonesia, Andina Julie, Venezuela, Luiseth Materán, Czech Republic, Mariana Bečková, Puerto Rico, Oxana Rivera, Spain, Hirisley Jimenez, Colombia, Priscilla Londoño, Cambodia, Pich Votey Saravody, and the Philippines, Roberta Tamondong.

MGI President Nawat Itsaragrisil took the opportunity to apologize to Filipino fans for whatever happened in the past and encouraged them to leave the past behind and move forward together and whatever. He is looking forward to the first winner from the Philippines in the nearest future, someone who possesses the right qualities and is willing to work with the MGI organization.

The new national director, entrepreneur Arnold Vegafria, officially welcomed the new franchise in addition to Miss World, Miss Supranational, Miss Eco International, and Reina Hispanoamericana.

"This has long been a big dream for me to forge a meaningful alliance with one of the most prestigious pageants in the world. We now embark on a new chapter as we proudly claim the official Philippine franchise of Miss Grand International. I will do my best to make our relationship flourish and to support each other's charities and advocacies," he said.

Details for the upcoming Miss Grand Philippines 2023 pageant are yet to be announced.
