Mutya Datul is Miss Personality at Supranational 2013

MANILA, Philippines - Woke up to some great news!

No, not about Napoles' surrender [although that was a good thing], but about Filipina Mutya Datul winning a special award at the pre-pageant fashion show of Miss Supranational 2013 — she grabbed the Miss Personality sash by a hairline over Miss Myanmar!

I've always said that one of Mutya Datul's greatest strengths is her ability to captivate you while she negotiates the catwalk. She exudes a Bayanihan-dancer aura and an air of hospitality that says, "Welcome, I'm so glad to see you!"

Miss Personality certainly fits her.

So while we are overjoyed with the news, we're not too surprised that Mutya Datul has caught the attention of judges as early as now. She is one of the strongest Filipino beauty queens of 2013. 

We hope this special award is a step closer for the Philippines to win the Miss Supranational 2013 crown. It will be given on the evening of September 6 in Minsk, Belarus.

3 other contestants won special awards alongside Mutya Datul:
