The Philippines has so far continued to enjoy success in the international pageant scene in 2017, and Binibining Pilipinas Intercontinental Katarina Rodriguez is hoping to give the country one more crown.
Currently in Egypt for the Miss Intercontinental competition, Katarina is determined to give the country its first ever Miss Intercontinental title. And Filipinos around the world can help her get closer to that dream by voting for her in the pageant’s online poll prior to the coronation night on January 24 (January 25, Manila time).
Netizens just have to go to http://www.missintercontinental.com/voting-miss-intercontinental-2017/ and select Katarina and two other contestants for their votes to count. Voting ends on January 23, 9 p.m. (Egypt time, around 3 a.m. of January 24 in Manila). The winner of the online poll will automatically advance to the final stage of the competition.
This year’s Miss Intercontinental competition will be held at the Sunrise Resort in Hurghada. Sunrise Resort offers a scenic view of the sea and even has its own private beach and lagoon. The hotel is also a primary mover in Hurghada’s party scene.
The blog The Great Pageant Community is also holding a separate online poll, with the winner being named the TGPC’s People’s Choice and advancing directly to the semifinals. Netizens can vote unlimited number of times, but the poll will close on the midnight of January 23 Indian Standard Time (PH Standard Time is 2.5 hours ahead of IST).

Aside from being a successful ramp, commercial and print model—she finished second runner up in Asia’s Next Top Model in 2014—Katarina is also an advocate of peace and HIV-Aids awareness.
