Miss World calling for Ganiel Krishnan in 2021

26 May 2021 | Priya Bhardwaj

Ganiel Krishnan, the Star Patroller of ABS-CBN’s flagship newscast ‘TV Patrol’, is hoping to represent Philippines at Miss World 2021 this year as she has joined Miss World Philippines 2021 as a delegate. As a delegate from Cavite, it’s ‘Miss World or Nothing’ for the beauty queen.

With her beauty, intelligence and self-confidence, Ganiel seems like a strong contender for the national crown. In 2016, Krishnan already won the Mutya ng Pilipinas Asia-Pacific International crown. She represented the Philippines at the Miss Asia-Pacific International in the same year and placed second runner-up.



On her re-entering the beauty pageant, Ganiel expressed, “I have always believed that we only regret the chances we didn’t take. I want to push myself more and plunge into this challenge. It has always been a dream to join Miss World Philippines since I strongly align myself to the core and mission of the organization.”

Krishnan acknowledged that she has to step up her game, stressing that she will be competing shoulder-to-shoulder with 44 other equally gorgeous women in the pageant. The 26-year-old Filipino-Indian beauty idolizes Pia Wurtzbach as her role model. She said, “Pia set the standards so high during her reign. She’s just so lovely, very down to earth and humble. Na-interview ko na siya a lot of times. Up until now actually, she’s somehow my peg. Kapag may mga styles ako, gusto ko parang Pia look ako.”



Strongly aligning herself with Beauty with a Purpose aspect of Miss World, Ganiel would also like to use the Miss World platform in pushing forward her own advocacy and charity work. “Building a solid advocacy has to be genuine and authentic, so two years ago, I started this advocacy called People I Met. It is a social media movement that aims to share and tell stories of normal yet incredible people I meet. I am deeply rooted in what I do as a journalist. My mission is to share their stories and the hopes of somehow alleviating their life situations and send across the message that helping is not hard to make a difference in this world. I hope I could amplify more voices, I could amplify more stories if ever I win the title”, she said.

With more knowledge and experience under her belt, Ganiel is ready to take on the challenge as she feels surreal that she will be back on-stage in hopes of representing her country once again at an international platform.
