Mainit na sigawan at palakpakan ang naganap sa UP Theater kung saan naganap ang coronation night para sa 2014 Miss Earth pageant. Nagpatalbugan ang 84 na mga kandidata mula sa buong mundo para makuha ang beauty title.
Mula 84, na trim down ang listahan sa 16 finalists na siyang nag swimsuit at evening gown competition. Mula 16, nagging 8 finalists na lang na nagka labanan sa question and answer portion.
Sa huli, ang Pinay candidate na si Jamie Herrell ang pinaka maganda sa lahat. Siya na ang ikalawang Pinay na nakapag suot ng korona bilang Miss Earth.
Ilang minute matapos niyang makuha ang korona, nagkaroon tayo ng chance na ma interview si Jamie at umiiyak pa siya habang nagpapa interview.
“I feel so overwhelmed and so happy. The first thing that I’m going to do is I’m going to push with my advocacy which is the Think Twice campaign which I started during Miss Philippines Earth wherein we go to schools for seminars and teach people to think twice and save our mother earth.”
Naging candid naman si Jamie sa una niyang plano gawin kinabukasan matapos ang pageant.
“I plan to eat I’m so hungry. Maybe ice cream? (laughs)”
Malaking pasasalamat naman ang ibinigay ng pinay beauty queen sa karangalan na nakuha niya para sa Pilipinas.
“To all of the Filipinos who supported me I just want to say thank you so much for supporting me and my dream has finally come true I want to thank my KF (Kagandahan Flores) family, the people from Cebu and Lapu Lapu, my Carousel family, everyone who supported me.”
Inunahan na ni Jamie ang issues, sinagot niya kaagad na deserving siya sa title at hindi hometown decision ang naganap.
“Everybody has their own opinion but at the end of the day it’s the choice of the judges and its been proven many times on how the Philippines got the crown it’s only our second crown for Miss Earth and it just shows that it’s not a home town decision. For at the end of the day the past beauty queens who have won the crown were very deserving and I know that the people who are watching right now thinks that I’m deserving to and the judges who chose me think that I’m deserving.”
