Pinoy Big Brother: Teen Edition Plus ex-housemate Valerie Weigmann was crowned as the Miss World Philippines 2014 during the pageant's coronation night last Sunday, October 12, 2014 at the Mall of Asia Arena. Valerie also bagged the Best in Long Gown, Best in Fashion Runway and Best in Swimsuit awards.
Valerie is of Filipino, German and Danish descent who joined the second teen edition of Pinoy Big Brother in 2008. During her stay inside the Big Brother house, she was linked to Ejay Falcon, who latter emerged as the Big Winner during that season.
After her PBB stint, Valerie became a thriving commercial and ramp model. She also became a guest co-host of the now defunct ABS-CBN show Wowowee. She was a host on Eat Bulaga before she joined the pageant.
Valerie was crowned by Miss World Megan Young during the pageant night. According to Valerie, she joined the pageant to raise awareness of the indigenous people. "Nagustuhan ko 'yung Miss World because it's all about beauty and giving. So since may advocacy na din kasi ako, nakita ko 'yung opportunity to raise awareness of my indigenous brothers and sisters."
She will be going to London in December 14 to compete for the Miss World 2014 crown.
