JDV Girls (L-R) and their approximate heights based on the picture alone: Rose Pujanes 5’6″, Camille Nazar 5’6″, Mercegrace Raquel 5’8″, Valiry Vispo 5’10” and Merry Joyce Respicio 5’11”
Five (5) John dela Vega (JDV) girls have already been presented as Bb. Pilipinas 2013 applicants, and a few more might come in at the last minute.
Focusing on the quintet of Mercegrace Raquel, Valiry Vispo, Rose Pujanes, Camille Nazar and Merry Joyce Respicio, who do you consider as the likeliest to snatch a candidate’s slot after the screenings are completed? Well, height-wise, the three tallest should breeze through the pre-judgings. And more than just the vertical measurements, they also register as the more promising of the group.
Mercegrace Raquel should have no problems getting in.
Mercegrace should be a shoo-in. Her exotic qualities and trained stance are hard to ignore. Add to that her respectable academic background and you have an ideal candidate. Earlier posts state that she is 5’9″. I reckon that she is a safe 5’8″.
Valiry has the best posture among the five. And her 5’10” height helps a tremendous lot. Face-wise, she may not photograph well from some angles, but there is still a palpable edginess in her beauty that shouldn’t get lost on the judges’ tally sheets.
Merry Joyce has legs that stretch endlessly. The youngest in the group, she has a 5’11” height to thank for. Otherwise, her presence tends to get drowned by far more impact-full competitors. The polish is still half-baked and her core section needs to get toned a lot more. I’m a bit half and half on her chances, but it cannot be denied that she will up the average height of candidates should she be included.
As for Camille and Rose, they should just enjoy the experience alone. The field is tough. And their middling heights do not contribute that much.
Bottom line: Mercegrace, Valiry and Merry Joyce will banner JDV for BBP2013, hopefully. ;-)
