After more than 4 hours of beauty competition via swimsuit, Filipiniana, and question and answer, out of 30 candidates with no elimination process, the lady from Angeles City Silvana Rauch took home the pearl crown of Miss Subaraw Festival 2019 last November 8 at the City Coliseum.
The 21 year-old beauty Youtuber and influencer also took home two special awards from SM Store and Microtel Hotel. Rauch is Mutya ng Pilipinas-Central Luzon 2018 and will take home P100,000 cash prize.
Rauch was asked on what is the best thing living in the Philippines, and this is how she answered:
“Other than the fact that the Philippines is rich in culture, history and tourist destinations, one thing I am most proud of being a Filipino is how resilient Filipinos are, arising from different types of calamities, and different types of problem. We are still able to smile and act like nothing is fine, of course Filipinos are very hospitable, that’s why many foreign people really go back here in the Philippines, especially here in Palawan, after all here in Palawan where nature begins and never ends.”
Rauch is a Filipina-Austrian BS Tourism graduate from Angeles University Foundation, who loves playing guitar and ukulele. She is also a young entrepreneur managing her own microblading service business.
First runner-up is the hometown candidate Shara Maxine Barber representing Palawan State University. She won Miss Photogenic award. Second place went to Miss Congeniality awardee, Danielle Isabelle Dolk of the province of Laguna.
The set of jurors was composed of Air Force Col. Paulo Teodoro, Astoria Palawan General Manager Joy Suarez, Kapamilya Actor Vin Abrenica, Miss Globe 2019-2nd runner up Leren Mae Bautista, Gener Gozum from Designers Circle Philippines, Catwalk Philippines 2019 Chi Caparas and Lynn Bentsen of Philippine Fashion Revolution.
