Binibining Pilipinas 2014 – My Fave List


Binibining Pilipinas 2014 Coronation Night is here and it has never been this BIG! The stakes are ultimately higher as the pressure for an impressive repeat is on. This, after the Philippines enjoyed a string of successes in last year’s international beauty pageants.

40 beautiful ladies are now on a quest for one of the five crowns at stake. It wouldn’t be an easy task for these ladies as the playing field is extra competitive this year. It is actually anybody’s ball  game even up until this very second. And before these titles will be awarded, I will share to you 20 of my favorite candidates this year and the ladies who I think deserves to win the coveted crowns. Here is my fave list :)

20th: Binibini 27 – Hannah Ruth Sison

Hannah is back J She is out to prove that last year’s blunder was just a bump on her “road to greatness” and should never define her. I observed that she is much more relaxed this year. It is probably the confidence of being on a familiar terrain!

19th: Binibini 40 – Vessica Sambo

She is last (but definitely not the least) on the roster of the candidates but Vessica manages to close every segment on a very high note because of her impeccable performance J  Vessica is a pleasure to watch. Her megawatt smile will surely melt even the most isolated glaciers in Antarctica . The world is a much better place to live as long as we see Vessica’s smile.

18th: Binibini 28 – Carla Jenina Lizardo

Carla’s exclusion in the original list of official candidates was one of the biggest mysteries of this year’s pageant. You can’t just easily ignore a winner of another national pageant. Carla is strong and spot on with her stage performance :) I am happy to see her compete.

17th: Binibini 21 – Racquel Kabigting

Height is might! This proves true to Racquel who towers at 6 feet tall. You can’t help but notice her and the longer you stare at her, the more comfortable you become of her. This was the case during the Parade of Beauties. My stare will surely go back to this dusky Glamazon :)

16th: Binibini 7 – Aiza Faeldonia

Aiza is my sentimental favorite this year! I have been praying intently that she will end up with a crown tomorrow evening. Aiza looks very sexy and enchanting. Her eyes speaks mysteriously, the face enchanting and the body screams sexy!

15th: Binibini 30 – Joy Marie Gangan

I must admit that I am not a fan of Joy. I don’t find her face (let’s say) pleasing. But this lady has so much fire power that she can annihilate the competition. She has a to-die-for body and her presentation skills is superb. I heard that she comes off as someone who is down-to-earth and simple.

14th: Binibini 18 – Ellore Noelle Punzalan

I always love it when I am proven wrong :) Ellore’s semifinalist placement last year was the biggest disappointment for me. I felt that she robbed a lot of girls and felt that she didn’t deserve the placement. Then, she decided to join again this year. I felt insulted that she had the audacity to come back and participate. Little did I know that I will be eating everything that I said when I became a fan during the Parade of Beauties. Other than her ripped body, Ellore is very comfortable with herself and her abilities that she appears to be very confident. These and her reliable communication skills, I feel that she will still advance this year.

13th: Binibini 23 – Nichole Manalo

This is interesting! Nichole, the youngest of the Manalo sisters, is trying her Binibini luck this year. The pressure is on for her to bring home a title as her older sisters are Binibini titleholders. Will she be successful? I must say that it will not be an easy road ahead for Nichole as the roster of candidates is full of strong delegates. Nicole doesn’t need to rely on her connections though as this mestisa beauty shines on her own merit. Her flawless skin is what she can offer and her beauty appeals to a certain group of pageant fans. Nichole’s Binibini journey is one of those that I keenly observing :)

12th: Binibini 17 – Diana Arevalo

Third time is a charm for Diana. Her previous outings in 2009 and 2011 both resulted into a semifinalist landing.Will it be a crown for Diana this year? Such a big possibility I must say. She has one of the best faces in the competition and with her previous experiences on hand, Diana will not start from scratch :)

11th: Binibini 14 – Emma Mary Tiglao

Emma is one of my favorites this year! This Pampanga-native is one of the most consistent performers this year. Her catwalk is superb. Her transformation from Mutya ng Pilipinas to Binibining Pilipinas is impressive.

10th: Binibini 1 – Julian Aurine Flores

The arduous task of opening the show was entrusted to the charming lady from Manila. Ja looks really sweet in person. She has the ability to make you feel at ease with her presence. However, never try to underestimate her abilities as her firepower is intense. I am ready to be surprised by Ja tomorrow.

9th: Binibini 4 – Parul Shah

Parul…Parul…Parul… Still one of the most competitive candidate, Parul’s arsenal includes a fiery lovely pair of eyes, to-die-for body and a gorgeous face. Her beauty is one that can’t be easily ignored.

8th: Binibini 22 – Bianca Guidotti

Bianca was my original choice for the top plum! If you have seen my leader board for Binibining Pilipinas, you will know that Bianca was consistently on the top tier group. I was a bit underwhelmed when I saw her during the Press Conference. I was looking for the beauty queen glow and the hunger for a crown but I didn’t see it with Bianca. I would love love love to be proven wrong! I would love to see Bianca with a crown tomorrow. I would love to!

7th: Binibini 15th – Kimverlyn Suiza

My choice for the 2nd Runner-up position if Kim. Like Emma’s, Kim’s transformation from a silent contender in Miss Philippines Earth to an aggressive Binibini delegate is impressive.  Kim’s best asset is her swan-like neck and the sheer elegance we see every time she is on stage. Will these be enough to snatch a crown? Again, a big possibility!

6th: Binibini 9 – Joy Antonette Diaz

The fell in love with Joy the moment I heard her speak! This lady is witty and confident. Such a deadly combo that is favored by Binibini. I may not be a fan of her beauty but proper styling will do wonders.

Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental: Binibini 11 – Laura Lehmann

Laura is another sentimental favorite this year :) I heard that she is down-to-earth, she is beautiful in person and is very smart. And I think the best way for Binibining Pilipinas to debut in Miss Intercontinental is  to send a well-rounded delegate with an impressive background like Laura!

Bb. Pilipinas Supranational: Binibini 25 – Mary Jean Lastimosa

Another three-peater is my favorite MJ! I am hopeful that she will end up with a crown this year as she is on her best form ever. She looks more relaxed, the styling is better and gone are days when her make-up freaks out her fans. I must say that transferring to a different camp was the best decision she made related to her beauty pageant career.

Bb. Pilipinas Tourism: Binibini 8 – Pia Wurtzbach

Pia started out weak this year. I thought that she lost her charm already. She slowly made her way to the top tier of every fan’s list of favorites. She was a busy runner-up and I heard only praises for her during her reign. I have a good  feeling that she will not go-home empty handed tomorrow.

Bb. Pilipinas International: Binibini 35 – Yvethe Marie Santiago

I was expecting to see this beautiful Bicolana in Miss World Philippines 2013. It was a blessing in disguise that Yvethe decided to pursue Binibini instead. She is one of the strongest delegate this year :) She has a very arresting beauty that demands everyone’s attention. You can’t just ignore her! The lovely face and a killer body combo was a winning formula in Miss International last year and fortunately Yvethe has both. Despite this, you can’t accuse her of being a copycat of anyone because Yvethe is beautifully unique :)

Miss Universe Philippines: Binibini 13 – Kris Tiffany Janson

Finally, after 4 years of speculation and wishful thinking, Kris Janson is gracing the Binibini stage. The wait is all worth it as Kris is on her winning form. Her beautiful face reminds me of every Goddess that graced the Miss Universe stage. She is often accused of having a somber and quiet demeanor but I consider her as a self-confident silent killer. She knows what she is doing and she knows that she is good at it. The MUP title is for her to loose! As a self-proclaimed “adopted Cebuano”, I can’t be “proud-er” to have her represent the city I love the most. VIVA Kris! VIVA Cebu!

I wish all the candidates the best of luck for tomorrow!

Binibining Pilipinas 2014 (32nd Update): A Date with Paula Shugart?!?


The President of the Miss Universe Organization Paula Shugart – will be in the country to witness the crowning of Binibining Pilipinas 2014 winners :) This, for me, has a very big impact on the relationship between BPCI and Miss Universe Organization – a very big step towards the next Miss Universe crown for Philippines.

As the President of MUO arrives in the country, beauty pageant forum are ripe with “unconfirmed reports” of the set of activities for Paula. One post was really interesting and I want to share it with you :) This post was about the list of candidates that are supposedly “invited to an exclusive dinner with Paula Shugart”. Good gawd but if this is really true, the impact is huge both for these ladies and for those who were not. Remember that in Miss Universe pageants, candidates who were invited for activities are the candidates who were considered as frontrunners and they ended up placing in the finals. Here is the “rumored list” of the girls who will have intimate moments with Paula:

Nichole Manalo

Kris Tiffany Janson

Yvethe Marie Santiago

Kimverlyn Suiza

Bianca Guidotti

Mary Jean Lastimosa

Diana Arevalo

Parul Shah

Emma Mary Tiglao

Hanna dela Guerra

Aiza Faeldonia

Vessica Sambo

Pia Wurtzbach

Joy Antonette Diaz

Racquel Kabigting

Mae Liezel Ramos

Ellore Noelle Punzalan

I don’t know with you but majority of the candidates that I consider as my frontrunners are in this list. What do you think?

Athina Karla Chia assumes the Miss Philippines Fire 2013 Title!

The organizers behind Miss Philippines Earth 2013 confirmed that Athina Karla Chia (who represented Ipil, Zamboanga Sibugay) is now the Miss Philippines Fire 2013 titleholder.

In the post through the official FB page of Miss Philippines Earth, it was announced that the elemental queens last year are moving a level up - Nancy Leonard will be assuming the Miss Philippines Air 2013 title while Alma Cabasal assumes the Miss Philippines Water 2013 title. Bernadette Aguirre retains her Miss Philippines Eco-Tourism 2013 title. No reason was specified in the said post but it seems that Kimverlyn Suiza is not connected with the pageant anymore. Kim was the Miss Philippines Air 2013 titleholder. She is technically still within her reign but we all know that is now competing in Binibining Pilipinas 2014.

I am wondering if Kimverlyn & Miss Philippines Earth parted ways peacefully…

Binibining Pilipinas 2014 (26th Update): The Web Interviews – Part 2


I had fun reviewing the web interviews of the candidates of Binibining Pilipinas 2014 for our first part which featured Binibini 1 to Binibini 8. Same as in the first part, I will be looking at personality, register on video and fluency. Let us get to know more about Binibini 9 to Binibini 16!

Video Credits: Bb. Pilipinas (Official) on YouTube

Click THIS to VOTE for your favorite Binibining Pilipinas 2014 candidate!

Binibini 9 – Joy Antonette Diaz

Personality – I enjoyed watching the video. I must admit that I was thisclose from getting irritated with the sharpness of her voice. However, Joy had a blast recording the video. It seemed that Joy was enjoying every second of it! She was full of confidence all through out.

Register on Video - There were moments in the video that she would face a bit to her right. I thought that it was her best angle. I appreciate the make-up but what she wore was a bore…

Fluency – What made this video really special was the smart and eloquent Joy :) Questions were probably given ahead of time but being able to come up with that answer and executing it well was superb. Of course, it helped that she grew up in the States that her English was impeccable.

Binibini 10 – Shauna Indra Curran

Personality – I expected a lot from Shauna and gladly, she did not disappoint! She smiled a lot which translated to the flow of her voice. I felt though that she was more serious and uptight during the whole video.

Register on Video - Shauna looked amazing. I love the subtlety of her make-up and the focus on her expressive eyes. The choice of pink top softened her more. I might choose a different hairstyle though. I also find her body angle a little uncomfortable to watch as her body was facing a little to her right while her head faced the camera.

Fluency - Since I am into yoga, I fully agree to what Shauna answered to her question. She was able to explain her answer well! Pronunciation and diction was spot on.

Binibini 11 – Laura Lehman

Personality – Oh, the confidence of Laura. She is woman of many skills and talents…And she knows it! She was able to mention all of her achievements without sounding too boastful.

Register on Video – Laura was just divine! I am big fan of her big beautiful eyes. I am not a fan of the tube top though I understand that she just wanted the viewers to focus on her face. I also think that the hairstyle did not suit her.

Fluency - Laura did an excellent job with expressing her thoughts. She communicated effectively and as expected, her command of english is impressive.

Binibini 12 – Sarah Jireh Asido

Personality – I like Sarah! I love her energy :) However, I am a bit disappointed with her in this video as I felt that she was trying too hard. She was forcing it that it became unnatural.

Register on Video – I think that Sarah looked good here. Since I am into ladies with big beautiful eyes, I appreciated Sarah here.

Fluency – Sarah delivered what was just expected of her. And in this year when the competition is tough, I felt that it was not just enough. There was really nothing special on her answers.

Binibini 13 – Kris Tiffany Janson

Personality – I have seen comments from fans questioning Kris’ intentions in joining the pageant. Some are accusing Kris of lacking the enthusiasm and energy that we see in other ladies. I really can’t blame them as I felt the same way here especially on the first part of the video as she was introducing herself. Good thing that she let go of everything and allowed herself to look silly when she shared her “secret” talent.

Register on Video – Kris was flawless. Her beauty is classic and if there is one reason to hit the replay button, it is the face of Kris Janson :)

Fluency – Kris was expected to ace every interview or question-and-answer in the pageant, an expectation that she shares with other Cebuana candidates. I know that she is fluent as I have heard her speak before. Too bad the video did not allow her to do so.

Binibini 14 – Emma Mary Tiglao

Personality - I am a big fan of Emma but her performance her was disappointing :( I felt that she could have done more or said more that could have shown her personality. Sadly, I felt that she was monotone and was just one dimensional all through out.

Register on Video – Emma was stunning in the video. If I was disappointed with her performance, I felt that her look was the highlight of the video. She looked phenomenal, especially her make-up.

Fluency – Boring and was too pageant patty… That was how I will describe Emma’s performance. She could have made it more interesting but sadly she didn’t :(

Binibini 15 – Kimverlyn Suiza

Personality – I ended up laughing at Kim and it Kim should be really proud. I will say it again: the confidence of a lady to look silly and funny in front of millions of viewers means confidence in her beauty and confidence with what she can do. She had a blunder with her answer but it was a pretty solid video over-all.

Register on Video – I have a love-hate relationship with Kim’s beauty. This time, I am a fan of her hairstyle and make-up. Even her neck (which is usually my issue with Kim) looked perfect.

Fluency - Kim experienced a blunder while introducing herself. In cases like this, it is always important to plan out what you are supposed to say. Do not rehearse but at least have an outline of what to mention in your head.

Binibini 16 – Zahara Mae Soriano

Personality - Zahara seemed to be hesitating while introducing herself. She was unsure with her sentences. It was disappointing because she has a well-modulated voice and a very beautiful face and she could have delivered a well thought video.

Register on Video – Her beauty is unconventional as she has some sharp angles but I am still a big fan. I thought that she registered well on video. If only her eye make-up was a bit muted and it would have been perfect.

Fluency - The pauses made her sentences a bit awkward. There was nothing extra special with what she mentioned.

So what do you think with our 2nd batch of candidates?

My favorites were: Laura Lehman, Kris Janson & Kimverlyn Suiza

How about yours?

Binibining Pilipinas 2014: Leader Board – Week 3


It was a busy week for the candidates of Binibining Pilipinas 2014. Other than the release of the portrait photos, the sponsor visits of the candidates started already. The talent competition was held over the weekend also :) Like I mentioned in the leader board last week, we have a different look this week as I felt that there were ladies who were too weak to just stay on top.

Click THIS for the Week 1 Leader Board

Click THIS for the Week 2 Leader Board

At this point of the competition, I already have an idea on the ladies with enough strength to stay on top of our list. These are the ladies who are most likely the crown takers. Here are some of the highlights for our third leader board:

  • Bianca Guidotti is the only candidate who has been in our Top 5 for all Leader Boards :) And what is amazing is the fact that she is not my personal favorite huh!
  • 3 of our top 5 last week are still in our top 5 this week.
  • Yvethe Marie SantiagoMJ Lastimosa, Bianca Guidotti, Pia Wurtzbach, Aiza Faeldonia, Kris Tiffany Janson, Emma Mary Tiglao, Mae Liezel Ramos, Joy Antonette Diaz and Laura Lehman are the only delegates who are in every leader board edition.
  • Week 3 of the competition was all about Kris Janson, Bianca Guidotti, Pia Wurtzbach and Joy Antonette Diaz. These four dominated the week. These four are also expected to dominate the web interview segments so I am sure that we will not be seeing the last of them.

Binibining Pilipinas 2014 (21st Update): My 12 Favorite Portrait Photos


The portrait photos of the Binibining Pilipinas 2014 candidates were released recently. Upon sharing them here, I added some of my impressions. I had high expectations for some of the candidates but sadly, most of them were disappointing! No need to fret as I feel that there were a handful who stepped up and delivered. Find-out my 12 favorite portrait photos here :)

(12th) Binibini 21 – Racquel Kabigting

Just an afterthought… I am slowly falling in love with her face :) Even the lips is growing on me! I appreciate the muted make-up here and it brings out her natural beauty :)

(11th) Binibini 10 – Shauna Indra Curran

I am not a fan of her body BUT that is just a beautiful face. The expression on her face and the pout elevates this photo against the other wannabes.

(10th) Binibini 35 – Yvethe Marie Santiago

Yvethe knows how to command some attention. She is entering the national pageant with so much to offer and this photo is one of them :) She is certainly one of the frontrunners this year!

(9th) Binibini 14 – Emma Mary Tiglao

Who can resist those curves? I am not that pleased on her face here but Emma knows what she is doing. You can see the confidence from the pose.

(8th) Binibini 7 – Aiza Faeldonia

Another sexy siren here! Aiza looks dreamy and angelic :)

(7th) Binibini 9 – Joy Antonette Diaz

Joy needs to work on a lot of things – from her body to her personality. But Joy is warning us not to take her out of our lists yet as she delivers a strong photo.

(6th) Binibini 31 – Angelique De Leon

I am pleased to see Angelique stepping up! I didn’t recognized her first but I instantly became a fan. The posture and the neck…. Hmmmm!

(5th) Binibini 8 – Pia Wurtzbach

Pia is experimenting and I love it. The rebellious vibe of the photo is working! Sexy bad ass chick…

(4th) Binibini 27 – Hannah Ruth Sison

Even with the possibility of being disqualified, Hannah still provides us with top-notch performance! I love the angle of her body and the glow on her face. I am officially envious of Hannah’s smile :)

(3rd) Binibini 24 – Ednornance Agustin

Such a beautiful portrait :) Eds looks strong and confident… This has a certain boyish charm that brings me to the 90s.

(2nd) Binibini 15 – Kimverlyn Suiza

Again, that swan-like neck is to die for and Kim knows that :)

(1st) Binibini 13 – Kris Tiffany Janson

I am forgiving this time to that body that obviously needs toning… I am willing to look past that as her face is G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S! The eyes and the full hair add to the drama of this portrait :) I love this…

How about you? Do you have favorites already?

Binibining Pilipinas 2014 (20th Update): The Official Portrait Photos


This is a late post so I am assuming that you have seen a photo or two of the official portrait shots of the Binibining Pilipinas 2014 candidates! This is the official portrait in the website of Binibining Pilipinas. Nevertheless, I want us to go through each and every picture to identify how the girls performed. So how do we critique a portrait photo? If we talk about portrait shot, my expectation is that of a photo that captures the beautiful aura of the delegate. The key to a successful portrait shot is knowing the best angle that will highlight everything that is beautiful in the candidate and will downplay those that are not. The candidate is captured from the legs up so it is different from head shots. The delegate is also evaluated not just by the beauty of the face but also with the pose that was chosen which differentiates it from a beauty shot. The shoot is also a bit muted as there is no photo shoot theme thus different from a glam shot. I evaluated the girls from their ability to look good and be beautiful with her body angles and poses :) Here are the official portrait photos!

Binibini 1 – Julian Aurine Flores

Binibini 2 – Mary Ainjely Manalo

Could have been a great photo if she put more emotions into her eyes

Binibini 3 – Joana Angelica Romero

Binibini 4 – Parul Shah

I am really bothered with the shadow… Such an awful lighting! I can only wish for a swan-like neck for Parul but that face is really exotic!

Binibini 5 – Hanna Mariz Dela Guerra

Binibini 6 – Anabel Christine Tia

Great personality… She looks vibrant and energetic!

Binibini 7 – Aiza Faeldonia

OEMGEE! This is a home run for Aiza. This is sexy and dramatic!

Binibini 8 – Pia Wurtzbach

Somehow, the rebellious vibe is working for me :) Even the lip color is perfect!

Binibini 9 – Joy Antonette Diaz

I ended up liking the photo of Joy despite the eye bags and the not so impressive body!

Binibini 10 – Shauna Indra Salina Curran

I like this photo neck up! The body needs more work!

Binibini 11 – Laura Lehman

I am disappointed with Laura! This is nowhere close to the top of my list.

Binibini 12 – Sarah Jireh Asido

The hair color is painful to watch!

Binibini 13 – Kris Tiffany Janson

Kris proved to us that she is one of the contender for crowns! Look at the determination and the drive :) She is killing this!

Binibini 14 – Emma Mary Tiglao

This time, I am liking the photo neck down! The face looks empty to me. No emotions :(

Binibini 15 – Kimverlyn Suiza

Kim excels in this type of shoots. That swan-like neck is to die for!

Binibini 16 – Zahara Mae Soriano

I am not a fan of that body but the face is beautiful :)

Binibini 17 – Diana Arevalo

Such an average performance from someone with experience :(

Binibini 18 – Ellore Noelle Punzalan

I am actually satisfied with Ellore’s photo. I think that this is her best look so far :)

Binibini 19 – Mae Liezel Ramos

Ignoring the pants, I am a fan of this photo! She’s stunning…

Binibini 20 – Kenneth Santiago

This is a downgrade from her official swimsuit photo! No personality…

Binibini 21 – Racquel Kabigting

I love the browse, the eyes and even the shape of the face! Just the lips… I wonder if something can be done!

Binibini 22 – Bianca Guidotti

I am forcing myself to like this photo but the crazy eyes are bothering!

Binibini 23 – Nichole Manalo

Binibini 24 – Ednornance Agustin

LOVE this photo… I am uber happy seeing this!

Binibini 25 – Mary Jean “MJ” Lastimosa

Oh MJ! You are beautiful but the teeth…NO!

Binibini 26 – Hanna Sheena Manuel

Now, can you please fire the hairstylist?!?

Binibini 27 – Hannah Ruth Sison

FRESH… The minimal make-up look is working for me.

Binibini 28 – Carla Jenina Lizardo

Disappointed with Carla. I had bigger expectations :(

Binibini 29 – Krischelle Halili

Always be careful not to look as if your eyes are about to sleep…

Binibini 30 – Joy Marie Gangan

She reminds me of Angeli Gomez. She looks bigger than her usual size because of the pose.

Binibini 31 – Angelique De Leon

Angelique looks different but I love the rawness of her face…

Binibini 32 – Jeslyn Santos

This is the type of photo that will make me say “blah”

Binibini 33 – Gabrielle Erika Tilokani

Too much forehead for my taste but the body is to die for :)

Binibini 34 – Leonalyn Dela Cruz

Binibini 35 – Yvethe Marie Santiago

I am not feeling the shade of lipstick she used but this is a good photo!

Binibini 36 – Krystal Alonday

Krystal was able to find the best angle for her nose…

Binibini 37 – Vanessa Saliba

Binibini 38 – Janine Asanion

Binibini 39 – Ladylyn Riva

Too heavy eye make-up… Such an over-kill!

Binibini 40 – Vessica Sambo

I love the over-all feel though the position of the left arm looks weird.

What do you think? Did they meet your expectations?

I will be sharing some of my favorites later…
