"She is never a product of some run-in-the-mill workshop, or of any beauty pageant at some nearby chapel, no. If truth be told, nineteen-year-old stunner Muriel Adrienne Isidore Orais is a reluctant beauty queen." , there goes Orly Cajegas, an Entertainment writer who believes Miss Orais, a Cebu City Beauty Queen, would be Miss Philippines Earth Winner.
Different online campaign were done but just like Orly, FaceCebu is supporting Miss Muriel Adrienne Isidore Orais as the next Miss Philippines Earth 2011.
In your own point of view, who do you think fit the title?
