During last night’s Cream Silk Transformations event launch, the winners of Bb. Pilipinas 2015 had a special reunion where Miss Universe 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach grouped herself once more with Bb. Pilipinas International Janicel Lubina, Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental Christi Lynn McGarry, Bb. Pilipinas Supranational Rogelie Catacutan, Miss Globe 2015 Ann Lorraine Colis and 1st Runner-Up Hannah Ruth Sison. Only 2nd Runner-Up Kimverlyn Suiza was missing.
It was such a special moment for all reigning titleholders as the last time they were together, Pia was still Miss Universe Philippines 2015 and looking at clinching the DIC crown in Las Vegas. This time around, the group feels a lot more emotional especially that one of them actually successfully achieved the most difficult mission of all. And this batch of winners will long be remembered as the one that actually produced the 3rd Miss Universe victory for the Philippines.
See you at the Presscon, Miss U! :-)
Being Bb. Pilipinas 2015 1st Runner-Up is the peak of Hannah Sison’s pageant career
Bb. Pilipinas 2015 is definitely the last that we have seen of Hannah Ruth Sison as a pageant competitor. After being named 1st Runner-Up in last year’s nationals, her appearance in the much-anticipated finals of Bb. Pilipinas 2016 this coming March will be to turn over her placement to the next Binibini-in-waiting. After three (3) attempts with ascending levels of success in rank, there is nothing to be ashamed of. She will now pursue other worthwhile endeavors outside the field of beauty contests.
Read her Facebook message now that serves as the reply to people who have been encouraging her to join once more:
“…To everyone messaging me to please join again, thank you for your faith in me but I am old and done with pageants. I am overaged. 27 years old. So No i am not joining. Last year I was the oldest candidate. I do appreciate all the support but do not worry, life does not revolve on pageantry–meaning there are so many big opportunities outside and I hope I still get your support in the different endeavors I choose. Thank you and love you all!”
We will definitely see Hannah in other avenues of growth as an individual
Life goes on for Hannah Ruth Sison. Who knows, she might surprise us with an interesting re-appearance somewhere that will completely take us by surprise. And that could be where she will finally get her more comfy and fulfilling place under the sun.
Best of luck in your next move, Hannah! :-)

When Lux Philippines launched their new line of perfumed body washes at the House of Lux event held at Valkyrie, four of our Bb. Pilipinas 2015 Queens were invited to add glitter to the affair. Miss Universe Philippines 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental 2015 Christi Lynn McGarry, Bb.

Looks like the 2015 edition will be pushing through after all
The pageant's Facebook status update yesterday
A photo during the last MTQI
This should be good news for one of the Bb. Pilipinas 2015 runners-up after the organizers of Miss Tourism Queen International announced in their Facebook page thst the 2015 edition of the pageant will happen from October 28 to November 9 in Wenzhou, China.
So who gets first priority for the same? 1st Runner-Up Hannah Ruth Sison, of course. Not unless, Bb. Pilipinas Charities, Inc. (BPCI) gave up on the franchise after acquiring Miss Grand International and Miss Globe. But methinks it is still with them.
Is it time to jump for joy for our potential representative? Maybe after BPCI releases a Press Statement naming the Binibini going to Mainland China more than a month from now. ;-)

Last Thursday was happy for both Parul Shah and Ann Lorraine Colis after the announcement of their overseas pageant assignments. It was long overdue for one and well-deserved for the other.
But how about runners-up Hannah Ruth Sison and Kimverlyn Suiza? Will these two beauties have their happy day as well? I really want to see them wear the Philippine sash abroad just like the rest. Gone are the days when at least the 1st Runner-Up would have something to look forward to during her reign. Are we pushing things a little too far in this regard? Don’t you think Hannah is also competitive enough to fight abroad? Or is there no longer an available franchise for BPCI to consider?
I just wish. Really. ;-)
Only fate can tell what good things await either of these two Binibinis
Could there really be light at the end of the tunnel for either Bb. Pilipinas Tourism 2015 Ann Lorraine Colis or Bb. Pilipinas 1st Runner-Up Hannah Ruth Sison? The question can be answered differently by an optimist and otherwise. But of late, some things are starting to roll in trickles and the clues are not for those who have been living under a rock these past few weeks or so.
I am not braving possible developments with an eternal sunshine of the spotless mind. I am treading with caution. Because if the chips possibly fall where they are supposed to land, then it could only bring smiles on our faces.
Let’s cross our fingers now until the next few weeks or so. :-)
Miss Grand International owner Nawat Itsaragrisil posting the Bb. Pilipinas logo in his FB account last August 13
Nawat Itsaragrisil himself
Last Thursday night in Bangkok at around 10am in the Land of Smiles, the Thai owner of Miss Grand International – Nawat Itsaragrisil – uploaded an image of the Bb. Pilipinas logo on his Facebook account. It was enough to send tongues wagging from Manila to Mainland USA. What is his purpose of doing so? Why make a post that he knows will send shock waves of rumor milling among Filipino pageant fans in particular? Is he trying to imply that negotiations are in progress with BPCI for his contest to be included among the titles of Bb. Pilipinas?
First off, that account is Nawat’s real Facebook presence. Unless it was hacked by playful souls, the sudden appearance of the said logo could mean a lot of things, both good and bad. The bad part is that there is a current franchise holder of Miss Grand International in the country, and that is John dela Vega who is coursing the winner of Miss Grand Philippines 2015 via the TV reality program “Pinay Beauty Queen Academy” on GMA News TV. The good indication is that if he is indeed making an effort to penetrate Bb. Pilipinas, then a relatively more reliable title could be added to the list of national crowns.
The question is when? This year or next? 2016 is a more feasible option. Doing it this year will break down the relationship with John dela Vega, not to mention the unnecessary intrigues that will be attached to the same, should any kind of shift persist.
The funny thing is the entry of Hannah Ruth Sison in the picture. The Bb. Pilipinas 1st Runner-Up is being informally lobbied by fans as a possible representative to MGI2015. While the idea doesn’t seem far-fetched, I took the liberty of contacting BPCI regarding the rumor. No answer has been given yet. But if push comes to shove, won’t it be more logical to consider Bb. Pilipinas Tourism 2015 Ann Lorraine Colis first since there seems to be no contest being lined up for her yet? Hmmm….
Let’s see what the next feed will say… ;-)
