Congratulatory messages from Boholanos poured in for newly crowned Miss Universe Philippines 2019 Gazini Christiana Ganados who traces her roots to Bohol.
Ganados represented Talisay City during the Binibining Pilipinas pageant but she received praise and support from Boholanos nonetheless.
She was named as the country’s representative to the 2019 Miss Universe Pageant during the Binibining Pilipinas coronation night held in Araneta Coliseum, Cubao, Quezon City on Sunday.
“Big big congratulations to Ms Loon 2017, Ms Gazini Ganados, Binibining Pilipinas Ms Universe 2019! From all of us the Relampagos family! So proud and happy for you! God bless!” said vice governor-elect and outgoing First District Rep. Rene Relampagos in a Facebook post.
Gazini, 23, who traces her roots to Loon through her mother’s family has relatives in the island of Cabilao.

“Congratulations GAZINI GANADOS for winning Miss Universe Philippines 2019!!! #LoonBoholCebuPH,” Aumentado said.
