globe, Jeslyn Santos of the Philippines stood tall and proud as she was crowned Miss United Continents 2016 during the gallant coronation night that took place in the city of of Guayaquil, Equador, a country located in the northwestern hemisphere of South America. The Filipina stunner made history as the very first Asian winner of the yearly-contested, Ecuadorian-based beauty contest.

According to her profile, Jeslyn Santos is a 23 year-old Broadcast Communication graduate from Hagonoy, Bulacan, Philippines. She is considered a pageant veteran before winning an international beauty title. She joined the prestigious Binibining Pilipinas beauty pageant twice (in 2014 and 2016 editions) but was not so fortunate enough to bring home one of the six crowns at stake. Last year, she was the country's representative in the Miss World Peace 2015 pageant in Hongkong where she finished in the Top 10.

Crowd favorite Miss India came in third place (Second Runner-Up) followed by Misses Brazil, Mexico and Panama as Jeslyn's Third, Fourth and Fifth Runners-Up respectively.

Rounding up the Top Ten were the delegates from Colombia, South Africa, Dominican Republic and Thailand. 

Earlier this year, Philippines has managed to nab two international beauty crowns and titles - Miss Asia and Man of the Year 2016. The two recent victories seem to have trumpeted a string of good luck for another pageant triumphs for the Filipino beauties. In fact just last night before Jeslyn Santos' win, another Pinay beauty, Camille CJ Hiro almost bagged the Miss Global 2016 crown. She was proclaimed First Runner-Up.
