What’s in a three-letter name? Quite a number, especially for Bb. Pilipinas 2015. Three, in particular – Binibini 3 Ria Rabajante, Binibini 10 Pia Wurtzbach and Binibini 31 Mia Howell. Three different personalities from three different beauty camps.
And in this triple face-off, Ria and Pia have the advantage of actual pageant experience, unlike Mia who is the newbie with only budding potentials to show at this point. But would that automatically lift two over one? Let’s see.Pia is not exactly storming the competition. But compared to Ria and Mia, she has the hunger and the hype to elevate her chances of getting a crown. She is prepared for both the best and the worst.
Ria is doing Bb. Pilipinas for the second time. And while she was seen by most as sort of a ‘flash-in-the-pan’ two years ago, she is better prepared now and will do whatever it takes to be assessed by the judges as a deserving winner regardless of the still-untested handlers backing her up.
Mia may be middling in the line-up owing to the presence of more highly-regarded candidates. She is counting on the freshness of her aura, though, plus the fact that she is a proven sport-disciplined individual who can use this trait to prove that her commitment is strong and unconditional.
However, if the probability of winning is the main benchmark, Pia noses them out. Ria has the good possibility of making a semifinal placement, while Mia could go either ways – place or simply treat the whole experience as one novel learning period in her young life. ;-)
