You have met the 40 beautiful delegates of Binibining Pilipinas 2018. As we get to know these ladies, I will provide you with some facts and trivia. Today, let me start by sharing the beauty pageant camp affiliation of some of the ladies.

For those who are not familiar, Philippines has beauty pageant camps which sends ladies to national pageants. Two of the biggest are Aces & Queens which counts Pia WurtzbachKylie Verzosa and Megan Young as wards and Kagandahang Flores with Bea Rose Santiago, Karla Henry and Lara Quigaman as queens. We also have RL Angels which is still doing its best to win its first major crown.

Miss Philippines Earth 2018 (1st Update): The Search Begins


Photo Credits: Miss Philippines Earth

Let me make this clear, the respect and admiration that I feel towards Miss Earth Organization is larger than my “dislike” of Karen Ibasco‘s Miss Earth 2017 win. Thus, despite some pageant fans reservations towards Miss Earth, I still think that it is relevant and will always be part of the three biggest and most-respected pageants. I also feel that despite accusations of favoring Filipina delegate, Miss Philippines Earth should continue sending the best representative that they can find.

Therefore, I encourage all beautiful Filipinas who have the sincere passion towards our environment to join Miss Philippines Earth 2018 and get a chance to represent our beautiful country in Miss Earth 2018 later this year. No details of the screening and the pageant as of yet BUT application forms are now available.

Visit the official website of Miss Philippines Earth to download the form!
