Winning the prestigious competition is a dream come true for the 23-year-old actress as she always wanted to join pageants since her younger years.

The Filipina-American beauty queen is an alumna of Pinoy Big Brother Celebrity Edition 2. She also starred in several Kapamilya series including “Betty La Fea,” “Precious Hearts Romances,” and “Maalaala Mo Kaya.” Currently, she appears on the TV5 miniseries “Misibis Bay.”

A video of the coronation night will be embedded on this page upon availability online. In the meantime, here’s a clip of the candidates’ opening number during the press presentation.

Megan, who represented Olongapo City, won 8 special awards—Best in Fashion Runway, Miss Sports by FILA, Miss Reducin, Miss Olay, Miss Laguna, Miss Bold and Glamorous by Revlon, Miss Figlia and Miss Bench Body—in what is considered to be “the most lopsided contest” in the pageant’s history.

The princesses (runners-up winners) are Janicel Lubina (1st), Zahra Saldua (2nd), Bianca Paz (3rd), and Omarie Linn Osuna (4th)

Megan will represent the country in the Miss World 2013 pageant in Indonesia this September.
