It will be a very exciting week for Pinoy beauty contest die-hards, with the Miss Intercontinental 2014 happening on December 4 and the Miss Supranational 2014 on December 5.
It's going to be a cut-throat battle for historic beauty pageant firsts. 25 year old Cebuana finance analyst Kris Tiffany Janson will be competing in Maritim Hotel and Congress, Magdeburg, Germany to hopefully become the first Filipina Miss Intercontinental. On the other side of Europe in Krynica-Zdrój, Poland, 21 year old Certified Public Accountant from Bicol, Yvethe Santiago guns for a back-to-back victory for the Philippines, following the crowning of Johanna Datul as Miss Supranational in 2013.
Both Kris and Yvethe have been in Europe for weeks for pre-pageant activities and preparations. Kris took to the stage in an exquisitely beaded golden muslim ensemble for the National Costume competition in Berlin last November 26, and entranced audiences with a muslim cultural dance in the Talent Night in Magdeburg last November 30.
Yvethe meanwhile dazzled onstage in Miss Fashion World 2014, Poland's prestigious fashion week, wearing an elegant silver Filipiniana terno last November 29. Yvethe wowed European audiences in the Best Body Competition and the Miss Supranational Fashion and Talent Show.

With only a few days leading up to their respective pageants, the girls are fully excited and geared up to represent the Philippines in the world stage. Yvethe shares, "It really is an overwhelming experience to see my dream come to life... From joining pageants in Bicol, to winning in Binibini, to finally carrying the flag in Miss Supranational. I can't wait to make the country proud." Kris confidently shares, "I have prepared and prayed for a long time for this, and I can't wait 'till pageant night to perform all that I've trained for. With the guidance of God, I hope to bring home the crown."
