Throwback Thursday : 2011 Binibining Pilipinas – The Crowned Ones!

Throwback Thursday 2011 Bbp Winners

Who would’ve thought that the day would come that each one of these girls are all going to be Binibining Pilipinas crowned queens? Ofcourse the three are already winners from this batch, (Binibining Pilipinas-Universe Shamcey Supsup, Binibining Pilipinas International Diane Necio and Binibining Pilipinas Tourism Isabela Manjon) then a year later, Janine Tugonon (1st runner-up) was crowned Miss Universe Philippines whereas the 2nd runner-up Mary Jean Lastimosa who also participated went home empty handed. This year though, it’s still very fresh to us since it just happened last Sunday when Lastimosa finally grabbed the Miss Universe Philippines title. What a beautiful batch indeed because all of ’em are winners!

2012 Binibining Pilipinas Parade Of Beauties Snippets

Here are some of the pics that I took from this year’s  Binibining Pilipinas Parade Of Beauties that was held last Saturday, March 25 around Araneta Center, Cubao. This time though, the candidates are clad in some elegant one-piece bikinis which I thought are more appropriate compared to previous years where contestants are in two-piece skimpy bikinis. Kudos to the BBP team!

Binibining Pilipinas 2011 Winners, Special Awards And Afterthoughts

The pageant’s ticket stated that the program will start at 7PM but it actually started at around 9PM. Thank goodness, the beautiful goddesses of this year’s competition are worth the wait. It was somewhat a very predictable night with frontrunners and favorites actually winning.

Shamcey Supsup was crowned Binibining Pilipinas – Universe which was pretty obvious for me. From the very beginning, I thought that Shamcey delivered the goods. Her body isn’t perfect but she can still transform it to a better one. The evening gown she wore was hands down one of the better designs even if she didn’t win Best in Evening Gown. It’s as if her win was already a pre-determined one.

Diane Necio however delivered a rather lackluster performance in my opinion. She was definitely the judges and crowd favorite but I thought that the likes of Arevalo, Al-Tawil and Tumulak performed better than her. I’m not taking this away from her. The girl is beautiful but she’s not the best. Congratulations, though, her color would give the Miss International a beautiful flavor come international pageant time.

Isabella Manjon wore a disaster evening gown but her stage presence overpowered that hindrance to actually win the Binibining Pilipinas-Tourism title. She has such a beautiful face and the camera really loves her. Although we didn’t expect her to actually win a crown, we’re still happy that she did.

Janine Tugonon – I was shocked by her runner-up placement because I honestly do not remember a thing about her – or maybe I wasn’t really aware of her during the pre-pageant activities. Was the question given to her about the relevance of winning a beauty pageant at this time of chaos –it’s not the exact question but it’s something of this sort. Well, she didn’t exactly win a crown so I think it’s fair enough.

MJ Lastimosa – I was so disappointed that she didn’t win the Best In Swimsuit category. I really thought that it was already locked for her. She didn’t give a bad answer during the question and answer portion and her articulation was a-okay but I didn’t feel any confidence from her. She should try next year. Please MJ!

Top 10 Predictions For Binibining Pilipinas 2011

An expected 15 semifinalist will be chosen out of the 40 Candidates for this year’s Binibining Pilipinas but I’d only be predicting whom I think have the biggest chances of landing in the Top 10 as well as our winners prior to the pageant this coming Sunday, April 10 at the Araneta Coliseum. CLICK HERE FOR THE WINNERS AND SPECIAL AWARDS

MJ Lastimosa

Despite her lack of height, I strongly believe that MJ Lastimosa will captivate the judges on Sunday with her very strong stage presence, unique facial structure and that guitar-shaped body. She’s my first choice for Binibining Pilipinas-Universe. She’d definitely rock Brazil, that’s for sure.

Shamcey Supsup

I’m so impressed by her credentials I’m almost sure that Madam Stella Araneta would automatically give her the crown. Without question, she’s one of the strongest contestants this year. She’s got the height, the brains and that very Filipina look but I need more “landi” from her. For now, she’s my alternative to MJ.

Patricia Tumulak

It is a must that this ethereal beauty be crowned come Sunday. I also think  that she’d do great in Brazil for Miss Universe but I still have some doubts about her capabilities to outstage Shamcey’s height and MJ’s body. I’m reserving her the Binibining Pilipinas-Tourism crown.

Queenierich Rehman

I’m seeing a Krista Kliener 2.0 in Queenierich and I’d like to see her get that Bb.Pilipinas-International crown as well. Being a very articulate speaker, a mestiza with a good height – she can do no wrong come Miss International.

Sabrine Al-Tawil

Sabrine would’ve been perfect for a Miss World representation. The competition this year’s real tough; I’m thinking that she’d do well in Miss International but wI’d like to see her explore her options if she’s unlucky after Sunday’s event.

Binibining Pilipinas 2010 Winners: Will They Make It?

Three ladies were chosen once again at the Big Dome to represent the Philippines in the three most prestigious beauty pageants in the world –  the Miss Universe, Miss World and the Miss International. In this year’s pageant, 24 lovely Filipinas battled it out to grab one of the three crowns.

Maria Venus Raj

Maria Venus Raj from Bato, Camarines Sur was crowned Binibining Pilipinas Universe. With a towering 5’9″ physique, elegant walk and incredible tan – Raj was actually favored to win from the get-go grabbing Miss Friendship, Best In Terno and Best In Long Gown during the finals. I have this feeling that she’d have a very good chance of at least making it to the semi-finals come Miss Universe 2010 because of her semblance to some Latinas who are ruling the Donald Trump-owned pageant.

Krista Kleiner

The Binibining Pilipinas-International went to GMA Network contract star – Krista Arrieta Kleiner (winner of Miss USA-Philippines) and girlfriend of Philippine RNB prince Jay-R. In my opinion, Krista along with Helen Nicolette Henson (2nd Runner Up) gave the best answers during the Q&A portion of the pageant. She was asked what would she tell President Obama if she were to have five minutes with him. The eloquence in her answer proved her smart thinking and that she actually deserved the title. She will be representing the Philippines in Shanghai, China October of this year.

Czarina Gatbonton

Manila Bulletin Reader’s Choice Awardee and Bulacan-native Catherine Czarina Gatbonton snagged the Binibining Pilipinas World title. She’s the only contestant who answered in the vernacular and when asked if she were to live again, what would she want to be? She answered “Puno” as in the girl wanted to be a Tree. Everyone inside the coliseum were mostly puzzled by her winning over crowd favorite Helen Nicolette Henson who received three awards and end up placing fifth overall. Gatbonton will be representing the country come November 2010 – possibly in Vietnam. As of this point, the Philippines has yet to win the Miss World crown.

Diane Necio

Diane Elaine Samar Necio of Albay was the night’s first runner up. She is also the reigning Miss Bicolandia- 1st Runner Up.

Nicolette Henson

Helen Nicolette Henson of Pampanga , 2nd Runner up.

I am not quite sure if we stand a chance in the international competitions. I’ve mention that I think Venus has a slight chance of making it to the semi-finals. If I were one of the judges, I would’ve picked Krista to represent us to the Miss Universe or Miss World (she could actually make it to the semi-finals by merely getting the Best In Talent –  an award she got at the Binibini.) For Miss World, we’d probably end up empty-handed once again for the nth time. Czarina just doesn’t click for me as Miss World material. I was hoping that Nicolette Henson will be chosen for Miss International but unfortunately the judges were not into her.

Let’s all hope for the best though . Out of all the three winners– I’d say Krista has the best chance of making it.
