I still have not gathered the number of crowns that will be given this year but for now as it is on the website, there are five titles up for grabs which includes:
Miss Universe Philippines
Bb. Pilipinas International
Miss Globe Philippines
Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental
Bb. Pilipinas Supranational
(Let’s see if the pageant will pursue sending delegates to Miss Grand International)
The finals night will be held on April 2016 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum. Watch out for more details!
Last week, during the Valentines – 12 girls from the pool of 40 hopefuls in this year’s pageant were selected to present their talent at the Farmer’s Plaza Activity Center. So for you to witness the said event, I collected videos of the girls I could find on youtube. Enjoy!
Upon watching these videos, I find myself enchanted with Aiza Faeldonia and Mary Jean Lastimosa. They exude such grace and stage presence! While I love Angelique De Leon’s routine being the most original!
So who should win Best In Talent on March 30?
*I am missing Shauna Curran video right here but I will update the list as soon as I found the video*
Their faces and names are already posted in different sites and some of them are already creating enough buzz and hype but it’s the final night on March 30 that matters the most. So after weeks of grueling screening process, callbacks and all – the over 100 applicants of this year’s Binibining Pilipinas were trimmed down to 40! I’ve to say how impressed I am with the quality of the candidates this year. There are a lot of fresh faces who are all very much qualified to win any of the crowns as well as the repeaters who are more ready and more beautiful this time! So here are our Top 40 in groups of 5…
