    Our very own Ugochi went there to be a star and she did just that. Our star shone bright!!! Many online polls saw us getting to Top 3 but God say our time never reach. All in all we are thankful for our Top 15 spot. Ugochi, you did us proud! So much better than our recent past outings. In other news, the Filipinos wanna break bottles o. They’re angry their dear Laura didn’t get to Top 15. Someone they thought will win. Remember the Philippines is the country with the highest number of Miss World fans. They’re crazy about this thing. A Miss Philippines is on the same level with a Philippines President, or more important. Just imagine the way we are crazy about World Cup raised to power 999 trillion. LOL.

    I think Ugochi should have made top 5. The winner should have been England based on the answers not India. #myopinion
