Local pageant fans are dying to know if ABS-CBN artist Megan Young will join Binibining Pilipinas 2012. You see, early talks seem to point to this tall beauty as one of two possible entrants (Valerie Weigmann being the other) of the network in the annual pageant derby.
The 5’9″ television actress, an alumna of GMA-7’s Starstruck who moved to Channel 2 for greener pastures, looks ripe and ready for the nationals. She has the looks, the body and the height to fit the bill and possibly be the country’s representative to either Miss Universe or Miss International next year.
But the bigger question is this: is Megan Young mentally prepared for the exacting discipline of beauty warfare? It is not enough that she has the physical package required for a crown. She needs to have the focus and determination – not only to win a Binibining Pilipinas title but also to train long and hard for the global pageant arena.
Shamcey Supsup and Venus Raj are tough world-class acts to follow. On top of that, pageant followers have upped their expectations a notch or two higher, believing that the Miss Universe 2012 sash should be pinned on a Filipina.
Can Megan Young face such pressure and carry the weight of a nation’s incessant yearning for an international winner? 😉
