BREAKING NEWS: Could it be true that the organizers of Miss Bohol Sandugo 2010 will no longer hire Bohol's seasoned host Raul Gatal?
So what made the organizers not to hire Raul who has been hosting the pageant for years?
Two things presumably: According to VRS, Raul had "favored" candidates in Miss Tagbilaran 2010 and he was "biased" in the casual interview segment. And the show wanted a new, fresh and young host.
VRS also added that rising host Julan Crisale Cordova (who emceed Mr. and Miss Teen Bohol 2010 last May) is one of the choices to host this year's pageant.
It's not sure yet if Raul will or will not host the pageant. Who knows, tomorrow could be...knock on wood...will announce he will not accept the hosting job. Be alert for whatever "announcement" Raul will make. Or he might opt to simply keep mum.
Bared exerted all efforts to get reactions from Raul and Ms. Michelle Porticos (the pageant coordinator) but they can't be reached.
Miss Bohol Sandugo is the most popular beauty pageant in Bohol. The screening for this year's participants is on June 18; July 9 is the pre-pageant and July 16 is the pageant night.

"It's my passion to care for the sick," admits Paulaine. "And also I could be able to help my family by seeking for greener pasture."
Paulaine who was part in Rotary's yearly Santacruzan, is still thinking if she has to join this year's Miss Bohol Sandugo. "I am still thinking and I still have to ask permission from my father and uncle."
