Miss Cebu 2016 is Gabriele Raine Baljak


Last Wednesday, January 13th, the Miss Cebu 2016 Coronation Night was held at the Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino in Lahug. Like the previous Miss Cebu pageants, only 12 candidates made it to the final pageant night. Of the twelve lovely contestants this year, one candidate really stood out from the rest. This year’s Miss Cebu is none other than Gabriele Raine Baljak.

19-year old Gabriele Baljak bested 11 other candidates in this year’s search for Miss Cebu. Gabriele is the daughter of Miss Cebu Tourism 1984 Mercedes Abellana Brenner.

Gabriele has Croatian, Spanish and Chinese ancestry. She grew up in a farm in Danao City.
