Miss International Queen Philippines 2023 is Lars Pacheco


Lars Pacheco was crowned Miss International Queen Philippines 2023 on Saturday, March 11 at Aliw Theater in Pasay City, Metro Manila.

The Bulakeña beauty edged out 24 other competitors to clinch the beauty title on her second try. She succeeded last year's titleholder and the third Miss International Queen from the Philippines, Fuschia Anne Ravena.

Michelle Bermudez of Caloocan City was named first runner-up while Barbie Alawi of Zamboanga City became the second runner-up.

Anne Patricia Lorenzo of Manila and Tamira Yvone Willis of Negros Occidental were the third and fourth runners-up, respectively.

No stranger to pageantry, the new Miss International Philippines previously joined Super Sireyna on GMA's "Eat Bulaga!" and then the inaugural Miss Q&A edition on ABS-CBN's "It's Showtime" in 2018.

Lars will now prepare to achieve a back-to-back win as she represents her country in the upcoming Miss International Queen 2023 competition in Pattaya, Thailand.

The Philippines first won the prestigious international pageant for transgender women with Kevin Balot in 2012 and Trixie Maristela bagged the second win for the country in 2015.
