What’s Valentine’s Day without sharing the love? And so, I would like to share some (plus a dash of attention thrown in for good measure) by featuring six ladies among the forty (40) Bb. Pilipinas 2014 Official Candidates who have not been getting as much blog-time, be it here or in other sites. This line-up wouldn’t be where they are standing now if they did not qualify to become beauty contestants or Top 40 placers at least.
Joana Angelica Romero, Krystal Alonday, Sarah Asido, Krischelle KC Halili, Vanessa Saliba and Leonalyn dela Cruz are taking the pageant just as seriously as the rest. For starters, they do not look at themselves as plain fillers. They want to show everyone that they can also keep up with the popular candidates by making their presence felt one day at a time. However…
Joana is currently being overshadowed by fellow Bicolanas Yvethe Santiago and Mae Liezel Ramos. Bummer.
Similarly, Krystal Alonday and Sarah Asido are almost always preceded in attention by Bulacan province mates Vessica Sambo and Jeslyn Santos. I’m sure they have something planned for the next pre-pageant events so they can get the spotlight more often.
On the other hand, KC Halili appears to be the least visible among the dazzling dozen of Aces & Queens. Perhaps, she is more of a silent attacker?
Last year’s debutante, Vanessa Saliba, seems to be happy projecting in the background than standing up front and keeping her stand. I hope her disposition is not to simply go through the motions and charge everything to first-time-big-time pageant experience.
And pretty Leonalyn. I am positive that she is turning on the charm all the time. But is anyone biting long enough to keep the stare and wait for her next move?
It is never easy joining the nationals. It takes the most iron-clad of guts, the most impenetrable grace under pressure and the most discretely-thick-skinned aura.
Will we see a sudden shift of strategy for the six lovelies?
I certainly hope so because this post is meant to challenge them. 🙂
