Katarina Rodriguez wants to be the next Miss World! At the final screening of Miss World Philippines 2018 on Wednesday, Katarina’s presence confirmed rumors that she is joining Miss World Philippines 2018!

The first runner-up of Miss Intercontinental 2017 wants another shot at an international crown and followed her fans’ suggestions that she join Miss World Philippines.

Ever since Katarina Rodriguez won a minor title in Bb. Pilipinas 2017, fans had been urging her to join MWP. Clearly, they were disappointed that Katarina, despite being a top favorite, only won the Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental 2017 title.

But more disappointment followed after finishing first runner-up in Miss Intercontinental 2017 in Egypt. 

Last year, she already gave hints that she would make another try by posting this on her Instagram, β€œJust cause I was my happiest this night in Egypt. πŸ‡΅πŸ‡­πŸ™πŸΌ To wear the Philippine sash again would be my brightest dream. ❀ Miss kita Philippines!”.

On Wednesday, at the final screening of MWP 2018, the former Asia’s Next Top Model 2014 standout made it official.

Good luck, and we hope she wins Miss World Philippines 2018!
