For today, I prepared the first of a three-part feature on the underdogs of Bb. Pilipinas 2013, or the ladies who seem to be neither here nor there in terms of popular appeal among pageant followers. The mere fact that they made it as Official Candidates is already a validation of their beauties and pageant competitiveness vis-à-vis the crowd and online favorites.
Let’s start with a trio of Kagandahang Flores beauties. If I had to rank them according to instant attractiveness, Hannah Ruth Sison would be first, closely followed by Angeli Dione Gomez, with Matet Gorgonio trailing behind. And in a less brutal batch, both Hannah and Angeli are capable of pulling off solid placements in the semi-finals, even a Top 5 spot for one of them. So far, though, I’m not feeling a victorious vibe yet.
But who knows? From hereon till the second week of April, the ladies will be far more visible to the public. And with that comes the opportunity to make their presence felt to a greater number of non-online habitués. I am particularly more keen on Hannah because her exotic looks are under-appreciated by most. She may not have the raw qualities that we usually associate with the same, but the face always lights up whenever the lens is aimed at her. I have a feeling she is one of Rodgil Flores’s more diligent students.
As for Angeli and Matet, it’s now or never, i.e. to shoot up in the weighing scale of competition. 😉
