In the vernacular, people would say “Iba na ang matangkad!” (Being tall is something else!). And the phrase couldn’t be any more appropriate when it comes to beauty pageants. In the ongoing screenings for Bb. Pilipinas 2014, Team JDV is proud to have the tallest girl in their camp. Six-footer Racquel Kabigting from Bataan always stands even without really trying. Her vertical advantage is such that nobody would want to stand beside her for fear of looking like a midget.
Height is a non-negotiable asset. So when a lady is more than blessed with the same, she becomes the easy target of talent scouts to groom and polish for competition. Just imagine if Racquel was born and raised by the same parents in Venezuela. She would have already been discovered by Osmel Sousa’s group and prepared for the nationals. It’s a good thing she is a true-blue Filipina who is very likely to become one of the excellent finds for this year’s edition of Bb. Pilipinas. 😉
