At the beginning of the competition, she was one of the frontrunners - being the number 1 most voted candidate in the online polls.
This is her, wearing a contemporary Filipiniana costume (side note: She's the third Filipina candidate to wear a filipiniana costume and hers is the closest to what a "Filipiniana" is)
And entering the competition, she undoubtedly shone the brightest amidst her competitors...

The best - and probably the most crucial - part of the pageant will always be the Q&A portion. While most fumbled, stuttered and hesitated, Ms. Shamcey Supsup spoke with so much poise and conviction.
When given the question, "Would you change your religious beliefs to marry the person that you love? Why or why not?",
she replied: "If I had to change my religious beliefs, I would not marry the person that I love because the first person I love is God, who created me. I have my faith and my principles, and this is what makes me who I am. And if that person loves me, he should love my God, too."
Congrats, Ms. Shamcey Supsup, for putting yet another incandescent sparkle to our Nation's namesake. You really made us proud. :)
