MANILA – Philippine bet Mariel de Leon ended her journey in the Miss International 2017 pageant in Tokyo, Japan on Tuesday.
The daughter of screen veterans Christopher de Leon and Sandy Andolong failed to make it to the Top 15.
Candidates from Curacao, Venezuela, Slovakia, United Kingdom, Ghana, Honduras, Japan, Ecuador, Finland, Laos, Indonesia, Panama, Thailand, Australia, and South Africa made it to the Top 15.
Miss International 2017 is still ongoing, and is streamed live on the pageant’s website.
It took De Leon two tries in Binibining Pilipinas before getting the opportunity to represent the Philippines in Miss International.
She was hoping for a back-to-back win for the Philippines. Her predecessor, Kylie Verzosa, is the reigning titleholder.
