Hi guys, welcome to the Critical Beauty Salon. In today’s vlog I will reveal the six things I like about a Miss Earth pageant and let’s start now At number six – theme song When the pageant debuted in 2001 it introduced a theme song that reflects the pageant’s environmental awareness advocacy the song was entitled “Woman of the Earth” with a catchy tune and catchy lyrics and I loved it. I am woman of the earth Spreading love and joy, fun and laughter woman of the earth, making miracles forever After, loving, caring, working, sharing, teaching, singing mothering. Eh ah Correct me if I’m wrong but of all the big international pageants Miss Earth is the only one that has a theme song and whose melody has been recycled a few times over the years. However, the song is not played every year and I wish it were because it would be a perfect audio accompaniment to the Miss Earth logo At number 4 Colorful opening number I’ve been following Miss Earth since 2001 and I always look forward to the opening number which is always colorful, upbeat, and well choreographed Among my favorites include the opening number from 2001 when they first introduced the catchy theme song “Woman of the Earth”, from 2005 when the delegates wore diverse costumes representing different cultures in the Philippines, from 2006 when it took place at the grounds of the National Museum in Manila, and from 2011 when the girls to dance to Jennifer Lopez’s high-energy hit “Papi”. At number three loads of activities Another aspect of Miss Earth that I really like is that the contestants are always doing something, especially when the pageant takes place in the Philippines where the pageant is based. Before the grand coronation night, the girls visit various destinations in the Philippines promoting environmental awareness and ecotourism. They visit various schools in line with a Miss Earth’s mission to educate the youth on the importance of taking care of the environment. They continue this message of environmental awareness in their events with other organizations, TV appearances and radio guestings in Manila. One of my favorite pre-pageant events is when the girls participate in an eco fashion show where they wear original outfits made up of recycled or reused materials and created by the local designers. At number two, the advocacy. When the first Miss Earth pageant took place in 2001 in the Philippines it quickly established itself unique from the other pageants because it focuses on a specific cause – environmental awareness. Compared to its older rivals like Miss World which began as a bikini contest or to Miss Universe which began as a spinoff from Miss America when the 1951 Miss America winner refused to poss in a swimsuit, Miss Earth has a more dignified origin and it does not pretend to imitate the other two pageants. I also like the slogan “Beauties for a Cause” because it empowers the delegates or participants the opportunity to work with an environmental advocacy that is personally significant to them. And to further raise public awareness about environmental protection and social action to reduce climate change, Miss Earth created the five Rs – Rethink, Reuse, Reduce, Recycle and Respect. Save Mother Earth. And at number one – great influence The Miss Earth titleholder is not only a representative of the Miss Earth organization but she’s also a spokesperson for the Miss Earth Foundation, the United Nations Environment Programme, and other environmental organizations. The Miss Earth Foundation also works with the environmental departments and ministries of participating countries, various private sectors in corporations as well as the World Wildlife Foundation. No international pageant has gained the support and recognition of both governmental and non-governmental organizations as much as Miss Earth has. It also has been getting support from different international television networks which indicates that the pageant has gained worldwide popularity and that the pageant’s mission is being heard and done in various countries. The television event is now seen in over 100 countries around the world. Miss Earth has also influenced other pageants to add environmental activities to their agenda, especially planting trees. For example, here we see Miss Universe Kenya 2017 Miss Grand Indonesia 2014 Miss Grand India 2017 Miss international 2017 and even Miss World 2017 has gotten down on her knees and soiled her delicate hands to help save Mother Earth. And lastly, Miss Earth has even inspired the creation of a copycat pageant, Miss Eco International, whose main objective is to promote the importance of saving our planet environmentally in addition to marketing tourism across the world.
