After a luckless campaign for Binibining Pilipinas 2022 queens abroad this season despite very strong showing, Hannah Arnold may prove to be the saving grace when the Fil-Australian model finally competes in the returning 60th Miss International pageant in Tokyo, Japan.
The 26-year-old Arnold, who grew up in Canberra, Australia and finished a degree in Applied Science in Forensic Studies at the University of Canberra, looked very much a crowning material in her white, Hollywood glamour dress and hair, during the sendoff party accorded to her Tuesday by the Bb. Pilipinas Charities, Inc.
“We are looking at Miss International,” declared Miss International 2005 Lara Quigaman, who led well-wishers, reigning Binibining Pilipinas queens, International 2022 Nicole Borromeo, Intercontinental 2022 Gabrielle Basiano, Globe 2022 Chelsea Fernandez, 2nd runner-up Stacey Gabriel, and Grand International 2021 Samantha Panlilio.
You can help Arnold make the Top 15 by voting online starting November 30. Coronation of Miss International 2022 pageant is set on December 13 at the Tokyo Dome City Hall in Japan.
