Patricia Isabel Medina Fernandez (born 5 November 1985) in Pasig City, Philippines) is a Filipina TV host, actress, model, and beauty pageant winner. She was crowned Binibining Pilipinas - International at the Araneta Coliseum last March 8, 2008, in the Philippines' City of the Stars Quezon City.

Education[edit]

Fernandez completed a degree in Bachelor of Arts in Speech Communication, cum laude, from the University of the Philippines-Diliman in 2007. Her college thesis was about local pageantry, which she says opened her eyes to the world of beauty pageants. She was also an alto singer with the University of the Philippines Singing Ambassadors under the tutelage of conductor Ed Manguiat.

Pageantry[edit]

Mutya ng Pilipinas[edit]

Having won Mutya ng Lungsod Quezon Turismo 2006, Fernandez represented Quezon City in Mutya ng Pilipinas, where she won First Runner-Up. She also received the Best in Swimsuit and Miss Stress-Free Beauty special awards.[1]

Binibining Pilipinas[edit]

The 2008 edition of the Binibining Pilipinas Beauty Pageant was held March 8 of that year in the Araneta Coliseum, Quezon City, Philippines.[2] Fernandez captured the title, Binibining Pilipinas-International,[3][4] and earned the right to represent the Philippines in the Miss International Pageant later that year.[5][6] She also received the Miss Natasha special award and appeared on the Natasha Catalog. The 2008 edition of the Philippines national beauty pageant encountered much controversy due to the question and answer portion of the Binibining Pilipinas-World winner, Janina San Miguel. Fernandez was succeeded by Melody Gersbach†, who won the Binibining Pilipinas International title on March 7, 2009.

Miss International[edit]

The 2008 Miss International Beauty Pageant was held in the Venetian Macao Hotel, Macau, China on November 8. Fernandez said in an interview prior to her Miss International stint, that she will show the world the Filipino's warmth.

"What I am most proud of about the Philippines is the fact that our people are as warm as our climate," the Filipina beauty said.

Fernandez's performance in the pageant landed her a spot in the top-12 semi-finalists. The Filipino crowd gave her a round of applause at the gate of the Venetian Macao Hotel Theater, the only pageant candidate to receive such appreciation.[7]
