From my initial Hot Picks – a couple of girls went up and went down on the list, and some were kicked out with other girls taking their places.
Ria Rabajante who placed 15th last week didn’t make it on my second to the last HOT PICKS along with Shamcey Supsup deadringer Angel Villafuerte who’s comfortably placed at ninth last week. So here are my second Hot Picks – a week before I post my final prediction.
Binibini 13 Charmaine Elima’s still holding on to the top spot! Is she really THE ONE?
Charmaine is continuosly dominating the competition. This Filipina Barbie‘s consistency came from her local pageant experiences and it shows in everything she does within the competition. She is THE ONE at this stage to snatch the Miss Universe – Philippines and the crown is her’s to lose.
Binibini 31 Maria Angelica De Leon has arrived!
Maria Angelica De Leon or Mariel is the biggest threat to Charmaine and a SERIOUS THREAT for that matter. From just a celebrity daughter when she first submitted her application to a supergoddess today – her transformation is nothing short of spectacular.
Binibini 39 Mutya Datul PERFECTION Personified!
Mutya is a perrenial Top 5 favorites of pageant afficionados and the likes. You cannot ignore this kind of beauty. Her weakness maybe speaking in English but whoever said that you cannot win a crown by speaking the vernacular??! Mutya can do a Czarina Gatbonton come finals night and she may even win the most coveted crown.
Pia went up from number eight to number 4 and that is because she truly stepped up this week. Merry Joyce’ consistency maybe a foreshadowing of her place come finals night and I’m still hoping the best for her. Hannah was second last week but her armor suddenly got weak! She needs to step it up for the last week leading up to the finals to seal her destiny to one of the crowns.
7th – Bea Rose Santiago
8th – Joana Cindy Miranda
9th – Parul Shah
Bea just went down a notch but she’s still a sure placer for me. Cindy on the other hand went from number 14 to top 8 and that is saying something. She may not be a favorite to win the Miss Universe Philippines but Cindy could easily snatch the other crowns from the front-runners! Parul who placed 10 last week is at number 9 now and I’m not sure what to make of her at this time – it seems like she’s losing her steam! This girl is Minorka Mercado V2 and she must use that advantage!
10th – Merce Grace Racquel
11th – Christina Love Paula Bernasor
12th – Anna Fernandina Buquid
I took notice of Merce when I read about her bio and watched some of her videos. This girl has got potentials! She may even be the dark horse of this competition so the girls should really watch out for her. Paula Bernasor on the other hand is up from 13th to 11th. She is my sentimental favorite you guys and I’m just really a fan of her beauty. I’ve a feeling as well that she’d make it in the semis! Anna Fernandina Buquid’s been hyped since she applied and she’s worth the hype if I may say. It’s just too bad that she’s too raw for this pageant! But hey, she may surprise us next Sunday though.
13th – Maria Sofia Gloria Mustonen
14th – Cassandra Naidas
15th – Vania Valiry Vispo
Sofia’s mesmerizing facial beauty is undeniable that is why she’s part of this list. You cannot also ignore the unique look of Cassy Naidas. And lastly, Valiry Vispo’s enigmatica aura was placed on my Top 20 last week and I’m glad that she stepped it up this week completing my Top 15 second hot picks!
Any comments or violent reactions? Haha. Who are you top bets to win the coveted Binibining Pilipinas crowns?
As the finals night of the Golden Anniversary of the Binibining Pilipinas beauty pageant is fast approaching, predictions are bubbling all over on who will be wearing the three crowns (official as of now) come April 14. There are 50 lovely ladies who are fighting to the finish to wear any of the crowns for the right to represent the Philippines in the international beauty arena. With that being said, may I present my Top 15 hot picks at this stage of the competition. This may still change as we approached the finals or after the preliminary but we’ll see…
Binibini 13 Charmaine Elima
Charmaine Elima or Maine so far is the most consistent girl in the pageant. She’s got all the goods goin’ for her. The looks, the body and that oh-so-universal appeal. She just need to maintain her pageant stamina to keep the top spot from the other girls. It’s either the Universe or nothing for her.
Binibini 19 Hannah Ruth Sison
At first, I didn’t notice Hannah but she suddenly became one of “the one to watch out for” girls by continuously improving towards the big night and girl’ is doing it at the right time if I may say.
Binibini 31 Maria Angelica De Leon
Mariel’s look may not be your typical beauty queen look but she’s got an elegant and unconventional beauty that I feel would hit overseas. I’m betting on her to win the International title (at this stage) but let’s see if Christopher de Leon’s daughter could pull an upset come finals night.
