These two will hopefully represent the Philippines in Miss Universe. One of them will compete next year and the other one in 2014. Which of which of them. Anyway I will give some background information.
Mary Jean Lastimosa, 25 years old from Davao City, Davao del Sur is a pageant veteran model. She has joined Binibining Pilipinas for quite some time now in the hopes of representing the country in the most prestigious beauty pageant of all - Miss Universe. Prior to joining and competing in Binibining Pilipinas national pageant, she was the winner of Reyna ng Aliwan 2008 representing Davao City as part of grand cultural fiesta competition, Aliwan Fiesta which gathers the biggest and most beautiful festivals around the country to compete in one event. Her stint and experience in modeling and the competition help her a lot enough for her to join the national pageant which chooses Philippines representative to Miss Universe, Miss International and other international competitions.
Maegan Young, on the other hand, is a model, actress and television personality. Prior to joining the entertainment industry, she joined and competed in Starstruck, a competition searching for the next celebrities in the country. Although she did not win, her beauty caught the attention of many and soon found her way into show business. The rest they say is history. Hopefully if ever these two will represent the Philippines in Miss Universe, they will make their country proud because they are worthy contender and good enough for that elusive third Miss Universe crown.
