After her last minute application to the nationals, former Miss World Philippines and Miss World 2016 3rd runner-up Catriona Gray just sealed her status as the one to beat for the top plum in this year’s edition of the annual Binibining Pilipinas beauty pageant.
Gray whose shocking exclusion from the Top 3 of the Miss World 2016 enraged many pageant fans allegedly prompting the then Miss World Philippines National Director Cory Quirino to give up the franchise of the pageant. Quirino even gave her blessings to Catriona should she endeavor to join the premier national pageant.
As we wait for the announcement of the official candidates in the coming days, we’ll know more if Catriona will be able to maintain the momentum from here on up to the finals night. It’s inevitable that she’ll end up winning one of the six crowns at stake but her joining is also a risky move as there’s a possibility of being relegated to a lower-tier pageant assignment.
In any case, your blogger and I’m pretty sure the rest of the pageant fans around the world are tuned in on what’s about to tranpire in the coming months!
So are you afraid of Catriona Gray 2.0?
