Jenny Guinto makes a comeback

Jenny Guinto is not leaving Japan for nothing. The former movie star known as Jenny Varga is about to make a huge splash as the country’s representative to the 2016 Mrs. Universe Pageant in China this September.

She was the personal choice of Gareth Blanco, managing director of Mrs. Philippines-Universe, and Jenny hopes to do our country proud by winning the title.

Compared to the times she joined Bb. Pilipinas and Ms. Philippine Pacific in the 80’s, Jenny maintained she’s more confident now.

“Mas kaya ko na ito. Noon kasi walang training. Hindi pa ako nag-modeling noon. I’ve barely started my career at kakalabas ko pa lang ng shell ko nang sinabak sa ganun. Kaya sa Ms. Philippine Pacific 4th runner-up lang ako and I was just 18 years old then,” she related.

Jenny was active as actress for six years, then she got married (she has two children) and left for Japan. There she sold fashion gowns made in the Philippines. She also taught English to prep and high school students.

“I decided umuwi last year. I’m planning to stay for good. I’m planning na bumalik sa showbiz,” shared Jenny. “Pagod na ako. Gusto kong mag-artista ulit kahit kontrabida.”
