MANILA – Philippines’ Christi Lynn Mc Garry was named the first runner-up in this year’s Miss Intercontinental, while Russia’s Valentina Rasulova was given the crown at the coronation night held on December 18 (Philippine time: December 19) in Magdeburg, Germany.
Brianne Bailey from the U.S., Katherine Garcia from Venezuela, and Tendai Bongani from Zimbabwe were the second, third and fourth runner-ups, respectively.
The five beauties bested 70 other national delegates in the pageant’s 44th edition.
With some questioning her earlier win at the Binibining Pilipinas tilt, McGarry proved herself by bagging a place in the international pageant and receiving the title Miss Intercontinental-Asia and Oceania.
It can be recalled that the 25-year-old beauty queen has already represented the country in the same pageant back in 2010 where she landed a Top 10 spot and also received the Miss Asia and Oceania title.
At present, the Philippines has not yet taken home the crown as Kris Tiffany won second runner-up in 2014 and Maria Soveitskaya also placed second in 1993.
