Will you automatically go for Racquel who’s 6’0 tall or KC Halili who just met the 5’6″ height limit?
Tall girls are always a joy to the eyes, especially when the height hovers around the six-feet mark. And while the shorter ones have no choice but to be dwarfed by them, there are still contenders who stand tall and possess the qualities of a winner. Remember the 5’4″ Anjanette Abayari? Or better yet, former Miss Universe titleholders Gloria Diaz (5’4″) and Margarita Moran (5’5″)?
Anyways, in the current roster of Bb. Pilipinas 2014 Official Candidates, Binibini 21 Racquel Kabigting registers the most enviable vertical measurement. Binibini 29 Krischelle KC Halili, on the other hand, looks to be the most petite at around 5’6″, give or take a few cms.
So you can compare the height of Racquel and KC, the group photo above has them specifically arrowed.
The two ladies couldn’t have been any more different in personalities. While both of them hail from the Central Luzon region, Racquel is a rescue team volunteer in Bataan, while KC is a UST Medical Student from Tarlac City. One is more of the rough-and-tumble type outside of pageant circles, while the other is the science-focused learner who thrives in exacting and methodical disciplines.
They have similar missions in mind, though. And that is to win a Bb. Pilipinas crown and hopefully, bring honor to the country abroad.
So if you had to choose between the two, am I assuming right that you would instinctively go to Racquel first? Or do you feel that KC is such a bright and well-spoken wannabe who might be capable of pulling a Lizbeth de Padua*? ;-)
