Of course we all know that Megan is a mistiza and so is Janine which most likely explain the twin mold they bear. Megan is Fil-Am (50-50); while Janine is a tri-cocktail of Spanish/American/Filipino* blood.  While it seems that Megan is the new peg of  an international pageant winner, Janine may most likely follow suit and perhaps bag a title too!


*Janine is the daughter of Lotlot de Leon (Fil-Am) & Monching Gutierrez(Spanish-Filipino)
