We are still months away from 2018 BUT the country’s top beauty pageant camps already have their eyes on the upcoming national pageant season. Aces & Queens and Kagandahang Flores are bringing out the big guns as they start to recruit for their 2018 candidates. In just days, both the camps led by Jonas Gaffud (A&Q) and Rodgil Flores (KF) came up with videos announcing the start of their search for potential 2018 beauty pageant entrants.

It was Aces & Queens that first posted a note calling all interested Filipinas to its screening. The announcement was posted via A&Q’s FB page on September 6. After 18 days, KF drew the first blood when it released a video announcing the start of its search for 2018 potential entrants. What made the video extra interesting was when KF used the tagline “The Beauty Camp with a Heart”. We all know that Pia Wurztbach‘s Confidently Beautiful with a Heart answer instantly became a classic which helped her win the Miss Universe 2015 crown and we all know that Pia is the most famous queen of KF’s archrival, Aces & Queens. The most famous KF queens were present in the video and their star powers should not be taken lightly. Big 4 pageant winners – Precious Lara Quigaman, Karla Henry, Bea Rose Santiago, Jamie Herrell and Angelia Ong – were the headliners. Reigning national pageant queens such as Karen Ibasco, Nelda Ibe and of course, Rachel Peters were heavily featured.

2 Days after the video, Aces & Queens uploaded another video. Not much of a hard sell, the 4-minute long video banked on its successes in both national and international beauty pageants. However, towards the end of the video, it asked the viewers if ” Could you be the next Aces & Queens?” A video that heavily features Megan Young, Kylie Verzosa and Pia Wurtzbach will not go unnoticed. Add to the mix Mariel De Leon, Laura Lehman and Catriona Gray then you have a sure hit video.
