Bb. Pilipinas Globe Chelsea Fernandez: ‘Back-to-back Is Hard But Not Impossible’
MANILA, Philippines — Chelsea Fernandez has been Tacloban City’s delegate in national beauty pageants for years. And her prayer to carry the “Philippines” sash across her body on an international stage has finally been granted when she received the Binibining Pilipinas Globe crown in July.
But her upcoming assignment abroad has an even heavier weight than others because she will attempt a second consecutive win for the country in the Miss Globe pageant. Reigning Miss Globe is Bb. Pilipinas Maureen Montagne, and Fernandez hopes to inherit the international crown from her when the 2022 pageant concludes in Tirana, Albania, on Oct. 15 (Oct. 16 in Manila).
