Robert Requintina of the Manila Bulletin reports Miss Philippines Rizzini Alexis Gomez won the pageant, first won by a Filipina in 2000, "which is the most extensive pageant that promotes the tourism industry."

The win capped a year of good luck for Filipinos in pageants. Also in December, Janine Tugonon was crowned first runner-up in the 61st Miss Universe pageant.

 

"Other winners were Kevin Balot, Miss Tourism Queen International; June Macasaet, 2012 Manhunt International, both crowned in Bangkok,Thailand; Andrew Wolff, 2012 Mr. World, first runner-up, in London; Elaine Kay Moll, 2012 Miss Supranational, third runner-up, in Poland; Stephanie Stefanowitz, 2012 Miss Earth, first runner-up, in Manila; and Ayellee Marie Dasalla, 2012 Miss Humanity International, second runner-up, in Barbados.
