The Binibining Pilipinas Charities, Inc. has found a new home after more than a decade of stay at GMA-7. From a Kapuso, it has turned into a Kapamilya, along with Bb. Pilipinas-Universe 2010 Venus Raj. Binibining Pilipinas will now be seen on Channel 2, at least from 2011-2015.
And what does this mean? First off, Bb. Pilipinas 2011 will be beamed worldwide via TFC (The Filipino Channel), which should make its subscribers very happy. And this is one of the principal reasons stated by its head – Madame Stella Marquez de Araneta – when she made the move. She also wants to implement changes in the pageant. What these changes are, we can only find out when the coronation night unreels on April 10, 2011 – much later than the finale dates of previous years.
ABS-CBN will handle the production (and I expect brilliantly exciting changes), as well as telecast the Miss Universe 2011 live via satellite from Sao Paolo, Brazil on September 12, 2011.
Let’s see how the new partnership works out! 😉
