This is such a big news for Binibining Pilipinas 2014 fans 🙂 It was confirmed via an official post on the FB page of BPCI that Gabriela Isler – Miss Universe 2013 from Venezuela – will be in the Philippines to grace the coronation night on March 30 and help crown the country’s representative to Miss Universe 2014. She will be part of the panel of judges.
Gabriela will be accompanied by Paula Shugart – the President of the Miss Universe Organization. They have scheduled some activities to help rebuilding efforts in the areas badly hit by Super Typhoon Yolanda!
I am very pleased to know that Gabriela will be in the country and accommodated in her itinerary some efforts to help highlight the rebuilding efforts in areas affected by Yolanda. These rebuilding efforts badly need the “spotlight” that they can get with a visit from a reigning queen. However, I am much more thrilled to know that Paula will be with Gabriela. At the end of the day, it is Paula who has “bigger” influence if we are talking about Miss Universe affairs already. I am sure that you know what I mean 🙂 If not, just remember that Hirofumi Hashimoto was one of the judges during Binibining Pilipinas 2013. Mr. Hashimoto is the chairman of Miss International. I am not saying that Bea Santiago won the Miss International 2013 crown just because Mr. Hashimoto was one of the national judges. However, the fact that he had a hand in picking the official representative and being familiar with Bea months before the competition started surely helped Bea “gain some attention.” Just imagine if Paula will help choose the winner of the Miss Universe Philippines 2014 title. Endless possibilities…
