Another kind of beauty queen

Welcome back, Mutya Datul!

09/10/2013


MANILA, Philippines - The Philippines’ reputation as a pageant powerhouse took a giant leap with the victory of a Filipina in the Miss Supranational 2013 beauty pageant held last Sept 6 [Sept 7 PH time] in Minsk, Belarus.

Mutya Johanna Datul, who hails from the town of Sta Maria in the province of Isabela, bested 82 other beauties from all over the world, winning the crown and the Miss Personality special award, and becoming the first-ever Filipina and Asian to win Miss Supranational.

The 5’8” stunner won the right to represent the Philippines in the international beauty tilt when she won the Supranational Philippines title during the Bb Pilipinas 2013 Gold pageant last March.

At her welcome party in Gloria Maris, Gateway Mall, Cubao the evening of Sept 9, the self-confessed "probinsyana" [country girl] greeted the press and apologized for being several hours late. She admitted that she got confused and missed her flight since it was her first time to travel abroad, alone.

In Filipino, she said, “First of all I want to say sorry that I made you all wait so long. This is not the first time I got lost. I also missed my flight on the way to Belarus!”

The highlight of the victory party was when Mutya talked about the closed door interview with the judges. She explained that the contestants entered the room in groups of 5 and they all had to answer the same question: Tell us about yourself and why you want to be Miss Supranational.


A FUNNY STORY. Mutya talks about her funny interview experience at the Miss Supranational pageant

Jokingly, she told this story, which drew much laughter from the crowd:

“The other 4 girls were like newscasters. They spoke too much. I was just listening and falling asleep. Honestly! I knew the judges felt the same way. So when it was my turn, I woke them up by saying ‘Mabuhay!’

"Then I introduced myself in their language. After that, I went straight to the point, saying, ‘I want to become Miss Supranational because this is my ultimate dream and I want it more! I want to be an ambassadress, a good example and give inspiration to many different people.’

"I think the judges loved me because I kept it short and to the point!”

The loudest to laugh in the audience of press folk was news reporter Patricia Fernandez, a former Bb Pilipinas titleholder herself. Even TV presenters from the different networks laughed at the candor of the newly-crowned beauty queen.

The most heartwarming part of the night was when Mutya’s family went up on stage. Her mother, father and 3 out of 5 siblings were there to welcome her. For a moment, they hugged and cried together.

According to the beauty queen, her family has always been her inspiration in life and that she joined pageants so she could raise money to help support them. Her Supranational crown is dedicated to them.


VICTORY FOR THE FAMILY. Part of Mutya's winnings will go to her mom's medication, her siblings' education and personal savings

Although Mutya did not expect to win, she says she had a strong premonition she would.

“Right before I set foot on Belarus, I suddenly saw myself returning with a crown on my head. I don’t know why I saw that! And then when the two hosts [on coronation night] said that the winner comes from ‘far, far, far away,’ I suddenly felt something heavy on my head.”

And before she knew it, the Philippines was announced and she was being crowned the winner.

As Miss Supranational 2013, Mutya also wins a heavy purse: US$25,000 which she says will go to her mother’s daily medication [mom Perly Datul suffers from a blood condition called aplastic anemia], the education of her 5 siblings and a savings account for the future.

Mutya also intends to remain in Manila to work as a model and perhaps make it as an actress so she can continue to provide for her family.

But before that can happen, she has a year of duties to fulfill as Miss Supranational 2013. Mutya said, “Next month [Oct], I will return to Belarus so I can meet the past winners of Supranational. We will be travelling to different countries starting with Panama.”

Panama is an important nation to the Supranational franchise; its founding organization, the World Beauty Association, is based there. The pageant itself is quite young — only on its 5th year — but it has quickly established itself as a prestigious competition, attracting over 80 nations this year alone.

In 2012, the Philippines also performed well when Elaine Kay Moll, sent by Bb Pilipinas, won 3rd runner-up.

Mutya’s victory coincides with the Gold [50th] Anniversary of the Bb. Pilipinas organization. Before her win, the last time a Bb Pilipinas queen brought home a major international crown was in 2005, when Lara Quigaman was proclaimed Miss International in Tokyo, Japan.

As Mutya Datul begins her reign as an international beauty queen, she only has this to say:

“I am very thankful to the Bb Pilipinas team and to Madame Stella Marquez-Araneta for giving me this chance. I hope that I can be faithful in my duties as a Bb Pilipinas winner and as Miss Supranational 2013.” - Rappler.com
