Miss Universe Philippines (MUPH) national director Shamcey Supsup complimented Pauline Amelinckx, saying that although it’s not the result they wanted, she is proud of the latter for giving a good fight and finishing as the Miss Supranational 2023 first runner-up.

Amelinckx was proclaimed first runner-up at the coronation event held in Poland on July 14 (July 15 in the Philippines). Andrea Aguilera from Ecuador emerged as this year’s Miss Supranational titleholder.


After the pageant, Amelinckx was greeted with an outpouring of praises from her fellow beauty queens including Supsup, who was present at the coronation night.


“It may not have been the result we have wanted but I am so proud of how [Pauline Amelinckx] gave us a good fight!” Supsup, who was crowned Miss Universe 2011 third runner-up, said in an Instagram post.

“I really thought we had it in the bag but no matter what, you are the winner in our hearts. Thank you for representing the [Philippines],” she added.

Meanwhile, Miss Universe Philippines 2022 Celeste Cortesi admitted she slept with a heavy heart after Amelinckx fell short of bringing home the Miss Supranational crown.


Nonetheless, Cortesi stressed that Amelinckx is a “queen of dedication” and did an amazing performance.

“Every time Pauline answers, you know it’s coming from the heart. It’s just authentic and sincere. She is indeed the queen of dedication,” Cortesi stated in a tweet.

“I’m super proud of her, I’ve seen how much she has grown. Let’s all send her our love and support for bringing pride to the country,” she continued.

Amelinckx’s first runner-up finish also extended the Philippines’ Miss Supranational placement streak to 11 consecutive editions.

The first, and so far only, Filipino woman to be proclaimed Miss Supranational is Binibining Pilipinas Mutya Johanna Datul, who was crowned in 2013.  /ra
