Young is an alumna of Pinoy Big Brother Celebrity Edition 2 and starred in several ABS-CBN shows including "Precious Hearts Romances", "Maalaala Mo Kaya" and "Betty La Fea". It's not the average path for Beauty Queen-dom to first be a well-known and popular young actress to then, become a beauty queen; it's usually the other way around. But then again, this IS The Philippines and being a Beauty Queen sometimes takes higher priority.

Megan during Evening Gown Competition:
Gown Perfect: Megan looked STUNNING during the evening gown portion of last night's contest. I absolutely LOVED this royal blue and silver sequined see-thru gown with plunging neckline and satin waistband. The gown was superbly made; looked red carpet appropriate; not at all "Pageant Betty" other words: I Approve! The hair and minimal accessories also finished off the look perfectly. This woman knows what she is doing (or at least she's got a team around her that does!).

 Congrats to Megan Young and Best of Luck at next month's "Miss World 2013" pageant!

Megan Young deserves the title and she is definitely one of the strongest contenders for the Miss World crown! She's very regal and queenly! By Madam_Stella

Megan Young brings beauty with a purpose to a whole new level. She's been doing charity works since age 16. She was appointed by the current president of the Philippines himself as Peace Ambassador to the Youth. She has all the qualities of a true Beauty Queen.

She is Miss World!

Megan Young is just irresistible!Her beauty is just heavenly. No bad angle/s on this girl. I believe that she is more deserving of the awards (Best in EG and Ms. Photogenic). Moreso, she has a good heart, rightful for the title MWP crown. And now our goal is to clinch the MW title!
