Anna Fernandina Buquid is one of the Bb. Pilipinas 2013 Pre-Screening applicants who has gradually become an early favorite among pageant followers. And why not? Her enviable height of 5’11 3/4″ alone is reason to get our hearts pumping. But will that be enough to guarantee her a spot in this year’s batch? Don’t you think she will need a group like Aces & Queens or Kagandahang Flores backing her up? Don’t get me wrong. A beauty camp is not a prerequisite to being seriously considered by BPCI. But it certainly helps a lot. Madame Stella Marquez de Araneta has already given her trust to these groups so the ladies fielded by each are given some unnamed kind of priority status during screenings. Call their reputation a collateral of sorts.
At any rate, I wouldn’t be surprised if she eventually gets ‘adopted’ by any of the two if ever. I’m not counting on it just yet.
