We’re back in the full swing of business after some pageant-sobering the past few days in observance of the lenten season.
Let’s resume by focusing on the four ladies who are fast becoming the top favorites to vie for Miss Universe Philippines 2013. I’ve been quietly reading up on all the different pageant sites and message boards and have noticed that these four beauties are consistently becoming the most popular picks to top the competition. And during my recent vacation in Bangkok, I also connected with some Thai friends who gave me their selections. The results do not vary far from how we see the ladies. The same quartet remains strong. So I would like to check on whose corner you will side with. Team Charmaine? Team Pia? Team Parul? Team Hannah? It’s clearly a fight between the favorites and the sleepers.
Do you prefer Charmaine? She is not the face of Bb. Pilipinas 2013 for nothing. Also, the ‘cut’ in her shapely body (especially around the waist) is an enviable feature. But then again, her continuously rehearsed moves and poses and hand placements can be quite boring and repetitive. Spontaneity is lacking.
Do you go for Pia? She is one of the fairest in the bunch. And she knows how to use her exposures as a mini TV celebrity to the fullest. On the other side of the coin, there appears to be a still-unidentified missing element that prevents some watchers from being convinced of her MU potentials. For one, there are angles that leave her face less appealing.
How about Parul? From out of the blue, this half-Indian babe rose to popularity at a time when it matters most. It helps that she knows how to exude wholesome flirtations which can make pageant fans love her even more. But has she done enough to be even considered a major threat? Or is she just exhibiting a flash-in-the-pan aura, owing to the lack of proof of her communication/interview skills?
And then Hannah comes completing the group. During the Press Presentation, this lovely showed that her presence is not to be dismissed. Add to that the loud whispers that she is gradually getting the slow nods of the people behind the competition, and you get a sleeping giant-just-waiting-to-be-awaken-from-deep-slumber. However, she remains to be the fourth-ranked in popularity here. And in a situation where 4-become-3, she could be first to be sacrificed.
Time to place your tentative bets. If the choices left are Charmaine, Pia, Parul and Hannah, who will you put on absolute top? 😉
