Miss Philippines is 1st runner-up in 2007 Miss Universe

Okay, maybe not. But it’s nice to dream, diba?

Here’s a link to Bb Pilipinas-Universe Anna Theresa Licaros’ profile on the Miss Universe website. She’s real pretty, and I thought she was a strong bet, until I saw this contestant. Oooh, these South Americans make it so hard for the rest of us, especially us dark and dusky Orientals. Ah well. First runner-up for Tere isn’t so bad. Maybe her smarts will make up for it. Japan’s candidate last year was spunky; maybe Tere can be it for this year.

Sumuko ba naman? LOL

Miss Universe broadcasts live from Mexico City, Mexico, on May 28. Mabuhay ka, Tere Licaros! Dapa na a la Miriam para mapansin! LOL Joke lang po.

Update 1 (05-08-07): Things are looking a little grim. GlobalBeauties.com‘s ‘Starting Grid‘ report doesn’t have Miss Philippines in the Top 22.

My personal Top 10 (in alphabetical order) after the jump.
