Karen Ibasco will be competing for the Miss Earth crown this Saturday, November 4, at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.

Philippine bet Karen Ibasco is doing a good show of raking in the most number of medals in Miss Earth 2017 preliminary activities.

The 26-year-old medical physicist has so far won five medals—three gold and two silver.

She won gold at the National Costume-Asia Pacific competition last Tuesday, October 31.

Her national costume was designed by Louis Pangilinan.

Thailand's Paweensuda Drouin and Japan's Yasuyo Saito received silver and bronze medals, respectively.

She earned her other gold from the swimsuit competition for Group 2.

The runner-ups in this pre-pageant activity were Peru's Karen Rojas and Russia's Lada Akimova.

Karen bagged another gold medal from the Miss Earth 2017 press presentation last October 30, where she was hailed "Darling of the Press."

Thailand's Paweensuda Drouin and Zambia's Abigail Chama won silver and bronze medals, respectively.
