Miss Earth 2008, Karla Paula Henry was called up on stage for her advocacy speech. Being a former Showtime hurado, Karla was asked by the roaring crowd of a “sample”. She chose to do a catwalk and left the singing to Josh Santana.
Before the announcement of the Top 5 finalists for Mr. and Miss Lyceum 2010 candidates, the cultural ambassadors of LPU, Lahing Batangan Dance Troupe, provided another extravagant performance.
And then they were five (no, 10)…
Top 5 male candidates were: Jowell Christian de los Reyes (#6); Paul Edward Macomb (#4); Michael Gerard Castillo (#7); Michal Bagui (#3); Jonathan Aguado (#9).
Top 5 female candidates were: Mary Jewel Punzalan (#13); Ge Lopez (#5); Mary Ruth Reyes (#4); Mona Hammad (#9); Marinel Andal (#8).
The final question that rocked the nerves of the guys: What can you suggest to strengthen LPU’s goal for internationalization?
The final question for the girls which reminded us quite a bit of the infamous ‘major, major’ scenario: If you would sum up the core values of the LPU, what would that single core value be? Explain.
Farewell message from last year’s winners…
