You wanna know why it was exciting? Before the pageant started, Donn had his hyperventilation. When he said that he was feeling dizzy and he cannot move his fingers, I knew it will be his hyperventilation. And it was, his lips was also uncontrollable. I admit, at first I was so nervous I thought he'll be quitting that pageant. But I remembered that when he was having that hyperventilation thing, he just need some cool air and just relax and after a few minutes, he'll be back to normal. After doing that, he came back to normal and we were all relieved.
Another thing that made that pageant an exciting one, Ali and the two candidates from 4th year were late. The plan was to start the pageant even without them. Meaning, they will be disqualified in Creative/Theme Wear part. Of course, we didn't want that to happen so 4th year people talked to the organizers to wait for them because it was not the candidates' faults why they were late. Ali came super late but the two 4th year candidates were super duper late. Good thing the organizers decided that they will not start until the candidates were complete.
So, first part of the pageant was the Creative/Theme Wear competition. I must say, every candidate was prepared and they really gave efforts for their creative wear. But of course, the tandem of Donn and Ali was still the best. Define Theme Wear!
Next was the Casual Wear competition and there was also a casual interview. Actually, I was waiting for that casual interview because I wanna know how Ali and Donn will answer those casual interview questions. They did great and I liked Ali's answer because she didn't show any tensions when answering the hosts. Look o!They look stunning as well.
And then Formal Wear. Donn and Ali didn't get that award but they were stunning and look divine together with those masks.
This is the list Special-Awards-goes-to thing . I didn't know their names but I'll try to enumerate them. Ok?!

Question and answer, the last part of the competition. Noelle and Ali did a great job but Donn, at first he had a mental-block-q&a-syndrome. Hahaha. Aminin mo yan Donndy! Hahahaha. There was silence, quite moments, and after absorbing the forces of the earth, he answered the question so good. He got back! I was so nervous for him. I have to admit, that time, I thought that if Oscar, the first runner up, my crush, ay, hahahaha, will answer the Q&A so well, he will be the Mr. ChES. But he didn't. After he answered, I said to myself, CONGRATULATIONS Donn! Hahahaha. And I was so right, Donn got the title of Mr. ChES 2010. With Noewee and Ali, their answers were so good but I must say, Noewee really answered it with confidence and all. And she won the title of Ms. ChES 2010.
