MANILA, Philippines — Ganiel Krishnan of Kawit, Cavite resigned from her Miss World Philippines 2021 2nd Princess post after more than a day of reign.

She is replaced by Janelle Lewis of Angeles, Pampanga, one of the Top 15 finalists and winner of the Miss Silka award.

In an Instagram post, the Miss World-Philippines organization wrote, “The Miss World-Philippines organization respects Ganiel Krishnan’s decision to relinquish her title as Miss World-Philippines 2021 2nd Princess to resume, and prioritize, her career as a journalist.

“Taking her place is Janelle Lewis who gladly accepted the duties and responsibilities that came with her crown.”

As one of the pageant’s frontrunners, Ganiel was in the leaderboard of six (Beauty with a Purpose, Multimedia, Top Model, National Costume, Charity by Teviant, and Beach Beauty) of the 10 fast track challenges and won two – the Multimedia and Charity by Teviant challenges.

In her letter to the MWP organization, Ganiel wrote, “I regret to iform you of my decision to relinquish my Miss World-Philippines 2nd Princess 2021 title and consequently resign from the MWP organization effective immediately.

“As you very well know, I have a thriving career as a lifestyle and entertainment news reporter in ABS-CBN before I entered the competition and have never kept my intention to go back to it a secret, regardless of the outcome of the pageant.

“While I am deeply honored to have been named a Princess in this year’s MWP search, my contractual obligations with the network will not allow me to serve two masters. Realizing this led me into making a decision to pursue the dream which will have the greater impact to actually serve my fellow Filipinos and that is through broadcasting.

“I wish to thank you, Mr. Arnold L. Vegafria, as well as the entire Miss World-Philippines organization, for taking good care of us and providing all pageant participants wonderful experiences that we will surely cherish for a lifetime. I also wish my queen sisters the best of luck in their respective endeavors in the future.

“I truly am grateful to have joined Miss World-Philippines 2021, which also marks my last foray into the world of pageantry. It was one big learning experience , especially for me, which I know will help me score even greater triumphs in the future. Maraming salamat po.”
