    I could never be more impressed with or amazed at Venezuelan beauty queens. I’m a Filipino and yes, we have our own delegates from the Philippines to international pageants, but then I can’t help admiring Miss Venezuela during every competition. I was viewing Hannely Quintero on YouTube yesterday and boy, was I impressed and amazed again! For sure, Hannely is going to bring home the bacon, be it as runner-up, a finalist, or the winner! (
