After some careful deliberation, looking at all the pictures and watching all of their videos, most importantly seeing them live in action (during their fashion show a while ago) – I finally was able to come up with the 15 girls whom I thought should advance to the semifinals and win the coveted 2013 Binibining Pilipinas crowns come Sunday night!
My Top 15 Final Hot Picks!
My Miss Universe Philippines 2013
Binibini 13 Charmaine Elima
CHARMAINE ELIMA (13)
Charmaine easily became a favorite the moment she submitted her application. This Cum Laude from Sienna College has been consistent all through out the competition. Her beauty won’t be ignored wherever in all of seven continents. Her universal appeal and calm demeanor catapult her on top of my list thus having the edge over 49 other girls. As I’ve said, it’s the MUP title or nothing for her.
My Binibining Pilipinas International 2013
Binibini 31 Maria Angelica De Leon
MARIA ANGELICA DE LEON (31)
Maria Angelica or Mariel’s beauty is without question a unique one for a Filipina. This celebrity daughter may not be the cup of tea of everyone but her mere facial beauty could easily toppled most of the girls in the competition. Mariel would go on to win one of the crowns and that is with certainty – and by her own merit, of course!
My Binibining Pilipinas Tourism 2013
Binibini 19 Hannah Ruth Sison
HANNAH RUTH SISON (20)
Hannah could easily win the Universe or the International sash had Maine and Mariel not entered this year’s competition. This title may not be the most prestigious one but winning one of the crowns, nonetheless is already a big honor. Miss Sison is pure class and just smart enough to clinch one of the title, I believe. After she went down on my second to the last hot picks, my faith in her got revived believing that she’s after all a deserving queen for the golden edition!
My Binibining Pilipinas Supranational 2013
Binibini 39 Mutya Johanna Datul
MUTYA JOHANNA DATUL (39)
I figured Mutya with her perfect face and figure would go on to win the rights to represent the Philippines at the Miss Supranational where mere beauty and presence is what matters most. Mutya is perfect for that pageant because no pageant in the world would ignore such beauty!
