The thirty-four (34) Official Candidates gave their most shining projection to the constant clicking of cameras inside the Tent of the Sunset Pavilion. Endless poses, twirls and group shots delighted all photographers around.
Afterwards, everyone was brought indoors for the Binibinis’ group shot by the spiral staircase leading to the lobby. And then, it was time to move on to the poolside where even the foreign tourists were in awe at the beauty of our candidates.
In summary, my twelve overall standouts in this event are: (in this order)
Binibini 11 Janicel Lubina
Binibini 34 Teresita Ssen Marquez
Binibini 10 Pia Wurtzbach
Binibini 19 Christi Lynn McGarry
Binibini 12 Kylie Verzosa
Binibini 28 Hannah Ruth Sison
Binibini 21 Alaiza Malinao
Binibini 24 Ann Lorraine Colis
Binibini 29 Nancy Leonard
Binibini 26 Anabel Christine Tia
Binibini 23 Justine Felizarta
Binibini 3 Ria Rabajante
P. S. The strong contenders for Best in Swimsuit, in my opinion, are Teresita Ssen Marquez, Janicel Lubina and Alaiza Malinao.
