A great week for Filipina beauty with one of our own contestants doing well in a new international beauty pageant, scroll down to read more about it!!!

In the meantime, Adventures of a Beauty Queen began compiling a Guide to Miss Universe 2010; it’s not yet complete but it’s getting there…

And now for the good news:

Adventures of a Beauty Queen congratulates Filipina teen beauty queen Mariella Castillo for entering the semi-finals and winning the Miss Queen Teen of Asia and Oceania at the Miss Global Teen 2010 beauty pageant in Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil over the weekend!

Congratulations too to Dominican Republic’s Mayte Brito Medina for winning the main title Miss Queen Teen 2010. Check out her photo below – doesn’t she remind you of our current Bb. Pilipinas World Czarina Gatbonton? They look like SISTERS!!!

***note – you sharp-eyed birds might have noticed that there is only one candidate from Asia (our very own Mariella) and one from Oceania. While that kind of takes away from the excitement over Mariella Castillo’s honor of winning Miss Teen Queen Asia & Oceania, let’s not forget that this is a very young pageant and Mariella DID enter the semi-finals. Adventures of a Beauty Queen will always honor Filipina beauty!!!

Thanks to MISS GLOBAL TEEN 2010 and Ovette Ricalde for the photos.
