In its 43rd edition, no Filipina has yet won the Miss Intercontinental crown. Last year Koreen Medina almost bagged the title when she settled as Third Runner-Up. Will Kris Janson surpass Koreen's achievement and bring home the Philippines' first?

The 5'8" beauty royalty from the Queen City of the South is this year's BPCI's torch bearer in its campaign to win the elusive crown of Miss Intercontinental. Kris is also the very first Binibini to compete in the said pageant (with BPCI org as the local franchise holder) so Madame Stella is making sure that they have picked the right girl with the best qualities suited for the intercontinental beauty crown. Kris who is a Management Accounting degree holder and alumna from the University of San Carlos is not a novice from the world of pageantry. She's Miss Cebu 2009 with Rizzini Alexis Gomez as her first runner-up (who later competed at Mutya ng Pilipinas and eventually made the Philippines proud when she won the Miss Tourism-International title last 2012 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia). The Cebuana beauty queen has already worked as a Financial Analyst in San Miguel Corporation before trudging on the prestigious Binibini route.

It doesn't take a genius to determine Kris' chances to win in any beauty spectacle. With Kris' exquisite mestiza features combined with her professional experience be it in the beauty derby or corporate world, she would certainly make waves in her pageant assignment and who knows this Cebuana superbeauty is the 'annointed' one we've all been waiting for to capture the Philippines' first Miss Intercontinental.
