Is Nancy Leonard priming herself up for a new pageant?
After serving her term as Miss Philippines Air 2013 (she was originally named Miss Philippines Water 2013 but got promoted in position after Kimverlyn Suiza resigned to join Bb. Pilipinas 2014
), Zamboanga beauty Nancy Leonard is becoming more and more visible nowadays. And it’s looking like she is being prepped for another beauty pageant happening soon. Could it be for Miss World Philippines 2014 or Miss Global Philippines?
Regardless of where Rodgil Flores enters Nancy anew, then she will be more than ready to face the challenge. She has more confidence now and is definitely more capable of placing in another competition.
Let’s see which direction the wind will blow for this stunner. ;-)
Will this mixed-race charmer be KF’s second ace for Miss World Philippines 2014 after Lorraine Hendrickson?
KF’s Rodgil Flores with Margo Midwinter
Remember Margo Katherine Midwinter? She’s the half-Filipino/half-Welsh girl who wore the Miss Manila sash during Miss Philippines Earth 2011. She failed to capture the crown that year. And after lying low for the past couple of years, she has resurfaced and rekindled her ties with Kagandahang Flores. Could it be for Miss World Philippines 2014? Very likely, in my opinion.
If ever, the 23 year-old stunner is going to be the beauty camp’s strongest bet after Lorraine Kendrickson. While she may only have a middling height (around 5’5″ or thereabouts), there could be other factors going in her favor like an articulate self and the fact that she traces half of her descent to the UK.
Let’s see how Margo will turn out in the upcoming weeks. ;-)
While the Cebu auditions are now over, the ones for Davao, Pampanga and Libis will be happening this coming weekend.
KF’s Rodgil Flores is involved in the production.
If you’re one of those interested to race around the Philippines, complete an assortment of physical and mental tasks, and gun for the big lumpsum of prize money at the end, then auditions for Season 2 of The Amazing Race Philippines
are ongoing. The Cebu leg wrapped up last week, but the schedules for Davao, Pampanga and Libis will take place this coming Friday, Saturday and Sunday, respectively. Pair up and audition! Download forms HERE

While her stint during Miss Resorts World Manila 2013 fell below personal expectations (she did not even enter the Top 5 in that one), Jamie Herrell of Cebu City is back with a vengeance in Miss Philippines Earth 2014 and currently enjoying a highly-favored status among the forty-eight (48) ladies in contention.
Beauty camp Kagandahang Flores has carefully prepared her styling, projection and training. And random feedbacks I’ve been receiving from fellow contestants tell that this girl is oozing with confidence and elan. Her face – a cross between TV actresses G Toengi and Jackie Lou Blanco – never fails to catch the attention of many. If she keeps it up, then we might have another Rodgil Flores titleholder in our midst. ;-)

KF beauty Lorraine Kendrickson is getting ready for MWP2014
Rodgil Flores and his Kagandahang Flores team has given us a peek into one of his upcoming entries for Miss World Philippines 2014. The girl’s name is Lorraine Kendrickson whom we have already featured once last January.
The reigning Miss Dumaguete looks like she’s channeling an inner Megan Young vibe. In fact, she has already had encounters in public where people would mistake her for Miss World 2013. A sign of things to come?
Anyways, Lorraine is in the middle of training for the pageant that is tentatively being scheduled for a July 31 finals. Let’s see how much more transformation can be seen between now and the screenings come late June. ;-)
Bb. Pilipinas 2014 Winners and Runners-Up
Your blogger with Rodgil Flores, MI2013 Bea Rose Santiago and BBP Tourism 2013 Cindy Miranda plus shots of the successful KF team plus the BBP Gold Queens with Madame Stella.
The good news: I had a very pleasant encounter with the newly-crowned Bb. Pilipinas 2014 winners at Balay in Araneta Center earlier. All seven ladies are in full bloom and looked every inch the beauty queens they have been transformed into just last Sunday night.
The not-so-good news: It was a full-on Press Conference instead of an opportunity to do one-on-one interviews with them. In fact, I was the last and only digital press rep to be able to ask one question. As expected, the broadsheet media and TV networks were given the chance to throw in questions ahead plus on-cam coverages, respectively.
Watch the 3-minute video below when I fortunately squeezed a question for Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental 2014 Kris Tiffany Janson.
It was a thrill seeing the winners once more. But I was more excited when Miss Universe Philippines 2014 MJ Lastimosa stated about the possibility of winning our 3rd Miss Universe crown as: “I’ll make it my destiny!“.
She clearly elicited the most number of interest from the guests present. And her aura alone is starting to exude traces of a future big winner.
I was hoping to ask more questions, but time wasn’t on our side as the allotted schedule for the press conference already went beyond the intended frame.
But don’t fret. I got an invite to attend the thanksgiving party of Bianca Guidotti soon. I will make a separate post on that this weekend. ;-)

Rodgil Flores and his Kagandahang Flores team must be smiling ear to ear nowadays. And for valid reasons at that. Four, in fact:
1) KF reclaimed the Miss Universe Philippines crown with the win of MJ Lastimosa. The last time they held on to the honor was way back in 2009 with Bianca Manalo.
2) KF captured the first-ever Bb. Pilipinas-Intercontinental crown via Kris Tiffany Janson who will now be Germany-bound for the pageant.
3) KF snatched another win courtesy of Parul Shah who is the new Bb. Pilipinas Tourism.
4) Hannah Ruth Sison was named 2nd Runner-Up and will now be training with the new Queens.
If that’s not enough, the beauty camp nosed out constant rival Aces & Queens in terms of numbers 4 is to 3.
All in a coronation night’s work that was preceded by months (a year or two for some) of hard training and polishing of the ladies.
Congratulations, Rodgil and Kagandahang Flores! You have earned more than your well-deserved stripes for 2014. And we’re done with just the first quarter. :-)
I just want to post my birthday greetings, albeit belated, to Rodgil Flores who heads Kagandahang Flores. May you continue to rack up winners after winners in all the country’s beauty pageants. :-)
Normally, I should be uploading two identical images for you to spot the difference. But in this case, one photo is enough.
Notice that one thing standing out in this group photo?
Look carefully at the thirteen (13) Kagandahang Flores ladies (including Anabel Tia) above. This was taken by Emerson Cebanico during the birthday celebration of Rodgil Flores. Can you tell me what you see that stands out, but not in a very obvious way? Clue: it’s something a pageant-loving podiatrist can easily point out. ;-)
And once you’ve spotted what I am referring to, post a reply. If you can add a brief explanation as well, then that would be cool. :-)
Anabel is now a KF beauty. (Credit for top photo: Sash Factor)
Anabel: post-make-up session from KF
When Anabel Christine Tia made it as Bb. Pilipinas 2014 Official Candidate, she was a proud independent who got in through her own merits. Right then and there, she was approached and offered by Rodgil Flores to undergo training in make-up and Q&A.
And the girl couldn’t be any more thankful that the camp took interest in her. She realized that simply relying on her own devices will not be the best option if standing-out is a primary objective.
Anabel gifted Rodgil Flores with the caricature above.
During the recent birthday bash of Rodgil Flores, she was already being treated as part of the family that she even gifted the celebrant a framed caricature she made herself.
From this point, we can expect Bel to look and project her more improved version during the pre-pageant activities. Let’s see if the decision to affiliate with KF is all worth it. ;-)
