Karen Juanita Gallman, a 26-year-old analyst, bested more than 80 other candidates en route to winning the title and crown on January 26. She received the sash and crown from outgoing queen Veronica Salas Vallejo of Mexico during the finals held at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City, Philippines.  Karen is the last from the Binibining Pilipinas 2018 queens to compete in an international pageant. With her win in the competition, the Philippines now has two 2018 crowns, following the win of Catriona Gray.

After a 2nd runner-up finish in 2014 and two 1st runner-up positions in 2015 and 2017, Karen finally bagged the Miss Intercontinental title for the country, making it the first for the Philippines. Karen was born to a Filipino mother and Australian father. She counts the Philippines, particularly Bohol and Brisbane, as her two homes. 

Karen is among those few beauty queens who have travelled around the world and in her video for the pageant she said, For me, traveling gives you that exposure to different ways of life, diverse cultures and history, which improves knowledge I think that’s very important because you get inspired.”
