A native of Malinao, Albay, Anna Czarina Buenviaje is one of the several Bicolanas competing in Bb. Pilipinas 2012. The 19 year-old lass stands a breath taller than 5’8″ and is one of the more statuesque contenders in this batch. In person, she actually looks 5’9″ with her long legs and torso. Unlike her other provincemates who went through the usual Miss Bicolandia and Mutya ng Magayon Pageants prior to gunning for the national level, this girl is relying on her natural youth and beauty to pull ahead of the former. Will it work? The competition for the three crowns (even the runner-up placements) is fierce. But we’ll see…
In the meantime, watch out for more of Anna Czarina Buenviaje as she competes for Bb. Pilipinas 2012.

Bicol region beauties are consistent performers in Binibining Pilipinas. In the last three years alone, they have at least one titleholder in each. Just to name a recent few, I can rattle off 2010 Bb. Pilipinas-Universe and 2010 Miss Universe 4th Runner-Up Venus Raj, 2011 Bb. Pilipinas International Dianne Necio and the late Melody Gersbach who was 2009 Bb. Pilipinas-International.
For 2012, another Bicolana is bent on conquering the national stage. Mutya ng Magayon 2011 Roxane Joy Jesalva is now undergoing intensive training under the tutelage of pageant experts for Bb. Pilipinas 2012. The 18 year old native of Irosin, Sorsogon stands 5’7″. Her beautiful face – framed by long shiny tresses – is reflective of the ‘Joy’ in her name. Always smiling, she has this winsome disposition coupled with a youthfulness that can be further enhanced with the right guidance in styling and projection.
Is Roxane Joy your type of beauty? Or do you find her too young to become a grand slam beauty queen? Or will she continue the winning streak of Bicolandia?
Personally, I can see a Dianne Necio in her. She could register well in her first attempt to nail a Bb. Pilipinas crown. But she can possibly be more victorious in her second try. We’ll see.
