There will be a new face that will be representing Miss Earth Philippines 2016 as officially announced by Miss Earth Organization in Manila. Loren Artajos is the newly appointed Miss Earth Philippines 2016. She will now take the responsibility to be the new brand ambassadress of Miss Earth Philippines until she will turn over the crown to the next successor next year. This is just a few days later after Imelda Schweighart who resigned as Miss Earth Philippines when she was very pressured enough brought about by numerous controversies while she was representing the Philippines in Miss Earth 2016.
Loren Artajos is expected to fill the position where Imelda made it vacant after representing her country in Miss Earth 2016. Earlier, Kiara Giel Gregorio was expected to automatically replace Imelda Schweighart until the next edition of Miss Earth Philippines in 2017 takes over. It seems that Imelda failed to fulfill her duties and responsibilities as the rightful winner of Miss Earth Philippines 2016. Loren Artajos is expected to crown the next successor that hopes to bring home the crown to represent the Philippines next year. As appointed by Ramon Monzon, who is the current president of Carousel productions, Loren Artajos is expected to crown her successor and hopes that next year will exceed today's controversies that will be won by a batch of disciplined ladies.
Loran Artajos is a nursing graduate from Laoag City. She passed the Nursing Licensure Examination on June 2011. Since she may have been practicing her profession after winning as the third placer during the conclusion of Miss Earth 2016, she may file a leave of absence for her company to pursue her new responsibility for Carousel Productions. She will be continuing the legacy that Imelda left behind until she will crown her successor next year. This is an unexpected scenario since the presumed lady who will replace Imelda is not available at this time due to a commitment to her academic career abroad.
Kiara Giel Gregorio was thought to replace Imelda Schweighart, which is usually a traditional ascension method when the highest position is vacated. Kiara failed to replace Imelda as she is currently busy with her studies as she is now concentrating on her upcoming exams on hopes to become a lawyer someday. This means that the other next in line will take over and will continue whatever Imelda left behind as a former beauty queen of the Philippines, which was the former Miss Philippines Earth 2016. Loren is also obliged to report to the headquarters of Carousel productions to know her official schedule of activities.
