MANILA – It seems that 2013 is the Philippines’ year when it comes to beauty pageants.

Amber delos Reyes was crowned Miss Teen Expoworld Universe 2013 at a pageant held in Guatemala last November 21, according to a report from The Philippine Star published Monday.

The report said the pageant is part of Guatemala’s Festival de Belleza ExpoWorld 2013, which also includes six other beauty contests.

Gil Wagas, a 22-year-old Cebuano, finished fourth runner-up at the Mister International competition held in Jakarta, Indonesia last week.

The victories of delos Reyes and Wagas follow several other successes of Filipinos in international pageants this year, including Megan Young’s Miss World win, Mutya Datul’s Miss Supranational win, and the third runner-up finishes of Ariella Arida and Ali Forbes in Miss Universe and Miss Grand International, respectively.
