Miss Philippines Nelda Ibe finished first runner-up at the Miss Globe 2017 beauty pageant held on November 3 in Tirana, Albania.

Miss Vietnam Do Tran Khanh Ngan won the Miss Globe crown.

Ibe placed second among 53 contestants in the international beauty pageant held in Tirania, Albania early Saturday.

In a post on Instagram, Ibe, who hails from Tarlac, said: “It was an honor and privilege to represent you my beloved country.”

Nelda has a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature from Tarlac State University and is currently a cadet pilot.


“Thank you, Lord! I’m so blessed beyond measure and thankful beyond words!” said Miss Globe 2017 first runner-up Nelda Ibe.

Fondly called “the pilot queen,” she wowed the judges with her Sampaguita-inspired national costume designed by Frederick Berches. She also placed second runner-up at the bikini competition.
