Precious Lara San Agustin Quigaman (January 3, 1983, Taguig, Philippines) is a model, host, freelance web page writer, and former beauty queen who won the 2005 Miss International beauty pageant held in Tokyo, Japan. She is the fourth Filipina to have won the crown, after Gemma Cruz in 1964, Aurora Pijuan in 1970, and Melanie Marquez in 1979. She was also the Binibining Pilipinas International title holder for 2005.


Based in Bristol, United Kingdom, Quigaman is the eldest of four children of the late Nelson Quigaman and Princesita San Agustin, a registered nurse. She grew up in Biñan, Laguna, and eventually Bahrain, where her father worked. After five years, she returned to Biñan and finished high school at La Consolacion College. Before moving to Bahrain she studied for two years at the University of Santo Tomas in Manila. In England, she attended Filton College, where she studied Media Production and Communication. She also pursued a Bachelor of Arts in Childhood and Youth Studies at Bristol University.

In 2008, Quigaman became Nestle Philippines' [ Laki sa Gatas] advocate for [ Bear Brand] Milk. He joined the product's other endorsers, Batangas Governor and actress Vilma Santos, Manila Vice Mayor Isko Moreno, University of the Philippines Professor Jose Wendell Capili and actress Eugene Domingo.

In late 2005, the purported content of Quigaman's Miss International speech was posted and spread as a miniature Internet phenomenon. She was asked, "what do you say to the people of the world who have typecasted Filipinos as nannies?" and upheld the reputation as nannies as being consistent with the loving and caring culture of the Philippines. This has been roundly denied by Quigaman, who, though admiring the speech, noted that it could not have fit within the time constraints imposed by the contest. Her own speech, in response to the question, "What will you do if you become Miss International 2005?" concerned child education, deviating from her original intention of speaking on terrorism and poverty.

During the media launch of her endorsement of Centrum vitamins, Quigaman stated that she once had to threaten to step down from her Binibining Pilipinas title rather than endorse an alcoholic beverage to which a BP rep had committed her.
