At last year’s Ginoong Pilipinas pageant, one mestizo stood out from the pack. Lance Howard, a 6’1″-tall hunk who represented Quezon City at the finals night, was one of the crowd favorites. During the pageant’s talent contest, he did a mean Harlem Shake [a dance which involves shimmies (shoulder shakes), pops (leg spasms) and ticks (robotic starts and stops)], totally different from the usual declamation and tribal-in-underwear-of-course dance by most candidates. Lance Howard landed in runner-up position at the finals. He has since gone off to Singapore for greener modeling pastures.
