Cassandra Naidas is from Aces & Queens. Parul Shah is from Kagandahang Flores. Mercegrace Raquel is from Team JDV. Together, this trio of very promising candidates represent an appetizing sample of the best in each of the major beauty camps in the Philippines.
Mixed-race beauties are no longer uncommon in Bb. Pilipinas. In fact, there has always been at least one or two in every batch since the 1960s. And with 50 participants this year, their number is at an all-time high. Half-Korean Cassy and half-Indian Parul are just two examples. And while they may not be first or second on anybody’s list at the moment, I’m certain that they will zoom to Team A very soon. There’s really something special in each of them.
On the other hand, pure Pinay Mercegrace (or MG for the rest) is shaping up to become trainer John dela Vega’s best bet for a crown this year. She has a lot of positive things going for her bid – the right look, the desirable height, the good academic background and better than average communication skills all in one package. Will she find the opportune moment to go full blast and prove to all and sundry that she is a force to reckon with?
Who will be the most fortunate among them? We’ll soon find out. Finals night is scheduled less than a month from now.
