I am continuing my Bb. Pilipinas 2010 Focus blogs today. This time, let’s take a look at the three strong Bicolana beauties who are out to win the pageant and sustain the victory of another Bicolana, Melody Gersbach, who was crowned Bb. Pilipinas-International 2009 and landed a semi-final slot in the Miss International Contest in China.
First on the list is the tallest among the three – Candidate No. 11 Maria Venus Raj. This 5’10” stunner initially joined Miss Philippines Earth 2008 and landed in the Top 5 with the title of Miss Philippines Eco-Tourism. This year, she is back with a big bang – complete with a total makeover that firmly places her in the strong running for one of the titles at stake.
And then there’s Candidate No. 22 Dianne Elaine Necio. Pageant kibitzers compare her to former Bb. Pilipinas-Universe and Miss Universe 1st Runner-Up Miriam Quiambao in more ways than one. She is said to exude the same aura and facial appeal. She is 5’7″ and a true charmer in pictures.
Completing the trio is Candidate No. 3 Patrixia Sherly Santos. Although standing only a few cms. shy of 5’6″, she makes up for it with her sweet presence and graceful disposition. Hers is the face that can easily capture the hearts of young men.
So how will these three Bicolana beauties fare in this year’s competition? Positively, I must say. Maria Venus Raj and Dianne Elaine Necio are easy shoo-ins for the Top 12 or Top 10. If one of them eventually wins, then the victorious streak of the region continues!
