Magkakahalong reaksyon sa social media ang naglalabasan ngayon matapos ang naging coronation ng 2017 Miss International. Ipinasa ni 2016 Miss International Kylie Verzosa ang kanyang korona kay Kevin Lilliana ng Indonesia nitong November 14 sa Tokyo, Japan.
Hindi man pinalad ang pambato ng Pilipinas na si Mariel De Leon, angat pa din ang Pinoy pride dahil naging training ground ng bagong Miss International ang pageant camp na Kagandahang Flores ni Rodgil Flores.
Sa Instagram post ng Kagandahan Flores Pageant Camp, ibinahagi nila ang kanilang kasiyahan para sa bagong Miss International.
We are very thankful to the Lord for giving us two more queens this year in the recently concluded Miss International in Japan. We in KF takes this as a sign of humble blessing and a fulfillment of our mission to carry out and teach our learnings in pageantry to help our fellow sisters who, in their heart, has always believed they can be queens — no matter their nationality, race, or color is. Congratulations, Natsuki Tsutsui of Japan, for being the 4th Runner-Up for Miss International this year. Your KFCebu family are very proud of you, and we your KFamilia are very honored for having you under our wings. We love you Nacky. And with great pride and honor, we would like to congratulate, Kevin Lilliana of Indonesia, for being this year’s Miss International. You truly are a Puteri of Indonesia for displaying every inch of grace and beauty even under pressure. Through your words, you have shown what a true Indonesian beauty queen can share to the world — Unity in Diversity. Be proud to be the first in your country to hold a major beauty title, but always remain humble and responsible with the power of the crown you now possess. Use it to touch other people’s lives as you go back to Indonesia. And always remember that our Love shall always be here in the camp for both of you.
Labis din na pasasalamat ang ipinaabot ng Indonesian pageant enthusiasts sa Kagandahang Flores para sa naitulong nito sa kanilang kandidata.
Bukod kay Kevin Lilliana, dumaan din sa training ng Kagandahang Flores ang pambato ng Japan na si Natsuki Tsutsui na pumuwesto naman bilang fourth runner-up sa Miss International.
