In an analysis that combined both the Press Presentation and Fashion Show, we now see another shuffling in our ‘Twelve To Triumph’ list. Binibini 11 Janicel Lubina is still keeping the pole position, while Binibini 19 Christi Lynn McGarry jumped to 2nd place from 6th in the previous week. Binibini 24 Ann Colis went up to 3rd, while Binibini 21 Alaiza Malinao had a couple of missteps that made her slip to 4th overall. Binibini 29 Nancy Leonard made one of the healthier improvements. She is now running 5th on my scoresheet, and has replaced Binibini 10 Pia Wurtzbach who is now 6th.
Meanwhile, Binibini 28 Hannah Ruth Sison has remained middling – neither zooming up or down that much. And that could be a not-so-good indication with the competition heating up nicely for the rest of the movers and shakers. Binibini 34 Teresita Ssen Marquez – despite making the Top 5 in National Costumes – has yielded her Top 3 spot to grab just the last of the Magic Top 7 placements. Could she really be destined for just a runner-up finish?
Let’s see how things will shape up as the month of March is ushered in tomorrow. Next Saturday afternoon will be the Annual Parade of Beauties, but that activity won’t affect the standings just yet. ;-)
