MANILA – Bea Patricia “Patch” Magtanong looked like a living Barbie doll as she graced the Miss International 2019 stage in a pink swimsuit.
The Philippine representative was among the candidates who made it to the Top 15 of the pageant.
She was joined by beauty queens from Venezuela, Thailand, United Kingdom, Hong Kong, Uganda, Netherlands, Vietnam, Finland, Puerto Rico, Belarus, Colombia, Mexico, Sri Lanka, and Indonesia.

As of writing, the coronation event is still ongoing in Tokyo, Japan and is being shown live on the Facebook and YouTube pages of Miss International.
Magtanong is aiming to become the Philippines’ seventh Miss International after Kylie Verzosa in 2016.
Her predecessor, Ahtisa Manalo, finished first runner-up in last year’s pageant.
