Star-studded Miss MassKara pageant night

Bacolod City will have its new queen crowned in a star-studded Miss Bacolod MassKara beauty pageant at 7 p.m. on October 19, at the University of St. La Salle Coliseum in Bacolod City.

Two former national beauty titlists, Billie Hakenson and Pauline Amelinckx, will be hosting the pageant night and high profile personalities in the world of pageantry and entertainment have been invited to judge the event.

Hakenson was Miss Universe Philippines 2020 fourth runner-up while Amelinckx was most recently crowned Miss Universe Philippines Charity 2022.

Pageant director Rodney Ascalon said winners of the tilt will automatically represent the city in national beauty pageants.

As such, most of the judges are known in pageant circles, including this year’s Miss Universe Philippines 2022, Celeste Cortesi. Joining her are other former pageant title holders like Erik Lennart Visser, the grand winner in Ginoong Pilipinas 2019; Michael Ver Comaling who is currently the Mr. National Universe 2022; Hannah Arnold, Binibining Pilipinas International 2021; and Trace Maureen Perez, Miss World Philippines 2021.

To complete the roster of judges are Cary Santiago, a known national costume designer who created the costume of Miss Universe Philippines Gazini Ganados and Jim Ryan Ros, the business development manager and lead makeup mentor of Aces and Queens.

Rising heartthrob Kyle Echarri and OPM sensation Zack Tabudlo were invited to entertain and serenade the 15 lovely candidates. Local artists, Nimrod Villamarzo, Hannah Puller, the Kagayon Dance Troupe, the MassKara Dancers and the Artians are also part of the production.

Three major crowns and titles await the winners, with Miss Bacolod MassKara Universe taking home P150,000; Miss Bacolod MassKara World to get P120,000 while Miss Bacolod MassKara International will win P100,000. 1st runner-up will bring home P80,000 and P50,000 will be for the 2nd runner-up.

Ascalon said the contestants went through rigorous training and mentoring “and for that alone, they are all winners already.”

He added that this is the first time that winners of the pageant will be given a chance to vie for national titles “and we are confident that one, if not all of them, will actually have a chance to bring home a national crown and make Bacolod proud.”

Admission is free, but due to limited seating capacity, tickets will be handed out on a first-come, first-serve basis at the Bacolod Yuhum Foundation Inc. office.*
