Everyone, we have a new queen.
All hail the first Asian and non-Latina winner of the Miss United Continents pageant, Jeslyn Santos.
Jeslyn won the crown just last Saturday, September 24, after besting candidates from around the world during the coronation night at the Palacio De Cristal in Guayaquil, Ecuador.
Jeslyn, a 23-year old a Broadcast Communication graduate from Hagonoy, Bulacan, is not new to the pageantry scene. She was an official candidate in Binibining Pilipinas 2014 (where she competed alongside Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach) and 2016. This stunning beauty queen also represented the country in the Miss World Peace 2015 pageant in Hong Kong, where she finished in the Top 10; and was Bb. Republica Filipina 2015.
Standing tall at 5'7", this doe-eyed beauty wowed the crowd not just for her head-turning looks and jaw-dropping confidence, but also for her answer to the pageant's final question, where she spoke in straight Spanish. Watch:
If that's not the definition of beauty and brains then we don't know what is.
Obviously, we are proud new fans of this amazing woman, and are itching to get to know her more. So we immediately followed her now-public Instagram account and here's what we found out.
Jeslyn + pageant sash? A match made in heaven
She loves taking good morning and good night selfies...and we are not complaining
Looks like this woman is always up for an adventure, too (Mind if we come along?)
