PRESS STATEMENT FROM ABS-CBN:
"Every year, the whole world watches in suspended anticipation to find out who will be hailed as the most beautiful woman in the universe. In our country alone, numerous beauty pageants are joined by kids, teenagers, ladies, and wives from barangay to national levels.
"In time with the telecast of this year's Miss Universe tomorrow (September 13) on ABS-CBN, Patrol ng Pilipino will look at the road that our long-legged, beautifully polished, and sexy Filipinas take to earn the most coveted crown of being beauty queens.
"Gretchen Malalad finds out if a beauty queen can be really trained or groomed. Or is true that beauty queens aren't made; they are just born that way?
"But how does one measure real beauty? Know what our beauty queens go through to have that winning pose and what's in it for them when they do win the pageant.
"Meanwhile, join Dominic Almelor as he visits Baseco Compound and hear the stories of the beneficiaries of President Aquino's Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program. See how their lives have changed with the said conditional cash transfer program. Is this the real answer to the growing problem on poverty?
"A beautiful life and a better life--catch all these and more tomorrow (September 13) in Patrol ng Pilipino, Tuesday night after Bandila on ABS-CBN or earlier on DZMM TeleRadyo (SkyCable channel 26) at 9:15 pm."
