Boholana beauty queen Pauline Cucharo Amelinckx has decided to compete again in Miss Universe-Philippines (MUP) 2022.
If you remember, Amelinckx came so close to clinching the MUP title in 2020, wherein she placed third runner-up.
In her Facebook account last Feb. 9, Amelinckx shared about her new journey.
“A new journey, familiar yet still mysterious. But one thing is sure, my heart is full of hope and my spirit is strong. Ready to take the leap. Let’s behold Bohol, again,” she wrote.
On Monday, Feb. 28, MUP announced that
Amelinckx was one of the Top 50.
The MUP is narrowing the field for Final 30 delegates. This also allows their Accredited Partners and their teams to hone in on fewer women and give them maximum support in the online challenges and preparations.
Amelinckx, a Filipino-Belgian from Tubigon town was crowned Miss Bohol 2017. She was crowned Mutya ng Pilipinas 2018– Global Beauty Queen.
In 2020, she was crowned as the third runner up in the Miss Universe – Philippines 2020. On December 4, 2020, MUP announced that Amelinckx was given the official title “Ambassador for Tourism”.
During the new coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, she launched her Hope in the Box to help children in Bohol.
