Three Filipinas in Miss World 2011

Filipina women indeed are generally exotic and beautiful. This year's Miss World pageant proves that because three beautiful and talented Filipinas are competing for the title. First, there is Miss World Philippines - Gwendoline Ruais. Then, there are former PBB housemate, Riza Santos, representing Canada and Maya Olesen being Miss World Denmark.

Riza is currently studying for a degree in engineering at University.
She has completed the Canadian forces army reserve military qualification
and would like to become a commissioned officer in the near future.
Hobbies include: singing and song writing.

Gwendoline received her degree in Business management last year.
She majored in marketing and really hopes to use her skills to make a positive impact on the world.

Gwendoline describes herself as confident and friendly – she puts her heart into everything she does


My super bet among these three ladies is Miss Canada - Riza Santos.
Though she isn't that tall, this girl also looks tough and smart.
We'll see who'll make it to the top on the coronation night, November 6, 2011.
