In the question and answer portion, Feucht mentioned she would invite French feminist Simone de Beauvoira to judge the pageant in relation to herr anti-violence against women and children advocacy.

“She has opened my eyes that we, women, have the most right to be powerful because we can lead an entire army. And I want her to see the strong women versions in this generation,” the Calambeña answered.

Before the contest, Feucht won other pageant titles including Miss Rotary 2023 and Miss Bikini Philippines 2021 first runners-up.

Meanwhile, Binibining Pilipinas marked Jajalla’s debut in the pageant scene.

The Camiguignon expressed gratitude for the people who supported her and also took pride in repping her hometown in a Facebook post.
