Kisses Delavin has taken fans on a trip to her hometown Masbate. She went horseback riding and boating for her Miss Universe Philippines tourism video.
The actress visited various tourist spots in the province such as beaches and churches. She also rode a horse on a local sandbar and grassland. It can be viewed on Empire Philippines’ YouTube channel on Tuesday, Sept. 7.
“When you open the map of the Philippines, right at the heart of the Philippine archipelago is where you can find my hometown, Masbate. I’m proud of this fact.”
The Pinoy Big Brother alum also showed some local products and cuisine. She also talked about the province’s “postcard-worthy views” and “rodeo action.”
“Masbate would be regarded by tourists as a dream destination, but for me, Masbate is more than that,” Delavin told fans. “I have lived a full life here. With these wonderful people, almost every corner, every place has a special memory with people I know and loved.
“I have lived here for 15 years and its beauty still surprises me every day. I am proud of this province.”
The video has earned more than 626,000 views as of this writing.
Delavin previously earned the top spot in Miss Universe Philippines’ introduction video and headshot challenges. She was also one of the candidates who made it to the beauty pageant’s Final 30.
The Miss Universe Philippines Organization started with an initial list of 100 delegates. For this year, the organization had its candidates go through a series of challenges to determine who would advance further into the competition.
The top 75 was announced on August 8 and the roster was trimmed down to 50 last August 22.
The candidate has been receiving criticism because of being young and being a celebrity before the pageant. However, she is not stopping and pushes forward to fight for the crown.
