The Official Candidates of Bb. Pilipinas 2015 are giving me a chronic headache. Just when I thought a right first combo would be perfect, another one would mess things up and juggle the standings in my head. But don’t get me wrong. I’m loving the beautiful confusion. It makes for a really tough group of contenders to assess.
This batch is a very good one – a rich mix of repeaters/crossovers and fresh faces who are both very competitive and capable of clinching a national title. And so, for my first “Twelve To Triumph” list, I am including a relatively easy ranking of my running favorites without intellectualizing too much on their individual plus points for consideration. Hence, consider this a quick round-up of the beauties based on what they can offer to the random spectator who may catch all of them in public or during a personal appearance.
Pia Wurtzbach and Hannah Ruth Sison offer instant face familiarity, and gorgeous ones at that. Janicel Lubina is the Pinay looker who can make heads turn fast. But Alaiza Malinao is the presence that exudes facial beauty, regal presence and imposing aura altogether – one of this year’s most promising challengers.
These are my dozen picks for January 31. A week from now, the second list will come out with expected movements.
Watch out for it! 😉
