Binibini 16 Marvi Ann de Lima is the Iriga City native who was plucked out of her regional pageant turns by Gerry Diaz of Aces & Queens to train for and be fielded in the nationals.
And while some jaded pageant followers may dismiss this face-off as just a filler of presence and numbers, the two ladies here are actually strong-willed and diligent competitors who are capable of outshining some of the preferred ones who will be caught off-guard in the filtering process.Now if it were up to me, the match will go to Marvi Ann in a heartbeat. Not that I am skipping a fair assessment of Caneille who has been giving her best so far. The former is just doing everything right, vis a vis the other’s outputs.
And while the Bicolana is the type of Binibini whose beauty does not grab you in an instant, it grows on an observer in due time. Maybe in time for the all-important closed door selection of the semifinalists? 😉
