Philippines’ Katarina Rodriguez lands in top 32 of Miss World’s ‘Top Model’ challenge

MANILA, Philippines — Philippines' representative and “Asia’s Next Top Model” finalist Katarina Rodriguez has landed on the top 32 of the Top Model challenge of Miss World 2018.

Maeva Coucke of France is the first to enter the pageant’s quarter finals and top 30 after winning in the Top Model round. She is then followed by Kanako Date of Japan, who is second to enter the top 30 after winning the talent contest.

Katarina, a 26-year-old Davao beauty, competes with 117 other contestants for the title, including Miss Intercontinental fellow contestant Metzi Solano of El Salvador. Katarina won as first runner-up at Miss Intercontinental 2017.

Last November 21, Miss World posted on its Twitter a video of Katarina competing in the group four of the pageant’s Head-to-Head challenge, a question-and-answer portion where contestants’ wit and quick response to issues are gauged. 

“Voting for the first round of the Head to Head Challenge is extended until November 30!” Katarina posted on Instagram. “If you haven’t already please like the official Miss World Philippines FB Page (link is in my bio) which is one of the voting platforms #MissWorld2018 is counting.”

Katarina will try to duplicate the feat of actress Megan Young, who won the Philippines’ first ever Miss World title in 2013.

The pageant’s 68th edition will take place on December 8 in Sanya, China.
