Filipinos are all out in supporting Philippines’ bet Shamcey Supsup especially after last year’s candidate Venus Raj placed 4th runner up. Pageant aficionados have been campaigning to vote for Shamcey in the Miss Universe official online polls since the Miss Universe Organization will be giving a sure semi-finalist slot to the candidate who will top the worldwide fan votes.
Shamcey was crowned Bb. Pilipinas Universe in April 2011 and since then she’s been preparing really hard for the competition. Pageant experts thinks Shamcey has a big chance to win.
