Beautiful Sinulog Dancer Who Looks Like Selena Gomez Goes Viral, Newspaper Launches Contest to Learn Her Name!

The ever popular Sinulog Festival in Cebu City had kicked off this year’s celebration with the Sinulog sa Kabataan sa Lalawigan competition – and a girl from Tribu Ginatilan quickly captured the attention of netizens on social media after her photos went viral because a lot of netizens think she looks a lot like Selena Gomez.

The pretty teen had piqued the interest of netizens and even the staff of Cebu Daily News so much that the news outlet launched a contest to learn her name!

Selena Gomez’s Pinay look-alike was later identified by netizens Dal Rodriguez as Gerhicka Carcueva. Upon checking Facebook, it was confirmed that Carcueva was truly the beautiful lady pictured at the Sinulog festival competition as her page also showed other photos from the same event.

For being first in sharing Carcueva’s name, Rodriguez won a Guyito stuffed toy (Guyito is the paper’s mascot) and some novelty items from Cebu Daily News, including a calendar, pen, notepad, and sketch book.

Meanwhile, netizens have checked out Carcueva’s Facebook page and concluded that the teen truly looks like Selena Gomez.

Others are saying that whether she looks like Selena or not is irrelevant because she looks stunning and would probably make a name for herself in the international scene as she comes of age – perhaps she’d become one of the country’s future beauty queens to an international competition, yes?

What do you think of this charming young lady?
