My Binibining Pilipinas 2013 Top 15 Final Hot Picks!

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 Top 15 Final Hot Picks!

My Miss Universe Philippines 2013

Binibini 13 Charmaine Elima

Binibini 13 Charmaine Elima


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

Binibini 31 Maria Angelica De Leon


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!

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

Binibini 39 Mutya Johanna Datul


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!



1 Ria Rabajante


20 Bea Rose Santiago


15 Pia Wurtzbach


5 Maria Sofia Gloria Mustonen


33 Parul Shah


47 Aiyana Mikiewicz


3 Zandra Flores


28 Merce Grace Raquel


34 Grace Yann Apuad


25 Merry Joyce Respicio


16 Cindy Miranda


My Binibining Pilipinas 2013 Top 15 Second Hot Picks!

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?

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!

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!

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.

4564th – Pia Wurtzbach
5th – Merry Joyce Respicio
6th – Hannah Sison

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.

7897th – 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!

10111210th – 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.

13141513th – 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?
