Nagsanib-puwersa ang CQ Global Quest, Inc. ni Cory Quirino at ang Viva Live Inc. ng Viva Group of Companies ni Vic del Rosario dahil ibinigay sa kanila ng Miss World Limited, ang British licensor ng Miss World franchise, ang exclusive rights para sa Philippine competition ng pageant.
Ang partnership nila ni Boss Vic ang katuparan ng pangarap ni Cory na makahanap ng isang formidable partner.
Nasungkit ni Megan Young ng Pilipinas ang Miss World crown noong 2013 sa ilalim ng pamumuno ni Cory.
Naniniwala si Cory na muling mapapanalunan ng ating bansa ang nasabing karangalan.
Pahayag ng pageant director, “It is the intention of Miss World Philippines to continue to search for qualified, beautiful, intelligent Filipinas who will not only win the crown of Miss World Philippines but to represent our country in the forthcoming Miss World finals to be held sometime November or December.
“We want to win the crown again and I know that we will.
“And with our partnership with Viva, with Boss Vic and all the talent, the experience and the resource behind Viva, we know that we can ably and successfully find our next Miss World.”
Itinuturing din ni Cory na “formidable partner” ang Viva.
“I’m happy to partner with Viva, especially Boss Vic whom I have known for many years.
“We have the same goal, to give every opportunity to all Filipinas who are qualified.
“The truth is, when we were given the license in 2011, I already said to myself, I can’t do this alone.
“I need a formidable partner who is a giant in the entertainment industry.
“And whoever that partner would be, I still have no name. No image in my mind.
“But then, that was always my wish and so I would say that it started in 2011 when I first got the license of Miss World, when it was given to me, Miss World Philippines.
“And from that wish, from that desire, my partner has finally appeared, and that is Boss Vic.”
Ayon naman kay Boss Vic, “I’m so happy with the partnership with Miss Cory Quirino, that Miss World now will be with Viva.
“And hopefully we can discover new beauty queens that can win and give us prestige in the international beauty contest.
“Hopefully, we can also discover new movie stars to be part of Viva stable.
“The main reason that we went into this is really a part of our expansion with our Viva Artists Agency.
“The partner of Miss Cory would be basically the Viva Artists Agency.
“The Miss Universe is now under the William Morris Agency in the US. They bought it from Donald Trump.
“So it’s just ideal na kasama sa pag-expand ng management namin is because Viva will now form a modelling division under Viva Artists wherein we will focus in beauty queens.
“We would like to go in that field also as a matter of expansion.
“Miss World Philippines will be better, with more glitz and content.
“Not only will every candidate be trained to become a beauty queen or a commercial model, but perhaps, even a movie/TV star.”
