It is never easy training to become a beauty pageant candidate. Even before one interested young lady gets to pin an official number on her hips, she needs to go through a lot, sacrifice a lot and give up a lot. The commitment can never go below 100%. And this should really be the case. The mentors and trainors are not doing it for the money. So the fulfillment comes from seeing the ladies polished and sparkling and ready for battle. Let’s also not forget individual beauty scouts/mentors like Jontie Martinez who go out of their way to give us one or two beautiful Filipinas to take part in the annual competition.
One of the many Kagandahang Flores mentors, Raffy Tesoro, giving the girls training on how to handle posing and projection during photoshoots.
The three recognized beauty camps – Aces & Queens, Kagandahang Flores and Team JDV – consider their jobs more as a labor of great love. They take great pains to insure that their wards are near-flawless in more ways than one. All bases are covered – styling, catwalk training, make-up, full-body posing, close-up posing, projection, wardrobe fittings, personality enhancement, speech improvement, mock Q&As, dental procedures and more.
So when we finally get to see photographs of the ladies during screenings and before we even make comments (positive, negative or not-so-pleasant), let’s step aside for a while and consider the ups and numerous downs they went through before arriving at the point of being evaluated for an Official Candidate’s slot.
With that in mind, let the Bb. Pilipinas 2013 screenings begin! 😀
