Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach was the only winner in the Top 5 of Bb. Pilipinas 2013 who was not issued crown jewels being the sole runner-up. But it must have been written in the stars that she will eventually win and wear the best one after two years – the Miss Universe DIC art deco-inspired gems itself.
But there is more to Pia’s win that made the titleholders of Bb. Pilipinas Gold more special. It produced our 5th Miss International (Bea Rose Santiago), our first Miss Supranational (Mutya Johanna Datul) and a Miss Universe runner-up (Ariella Arida). In addition, this batch had the last recorded Philippine paricipant in Miss Tourism Queen International with Cindy Miranda placing in the Top 10. Tally-wise, this quintet edged out the equally-successful 2012 counterpart simply because it had more victories than top placements. It also eclipsed the reigning group in terms of collection.
Let us now reminisce on the crowning moments of Bb. Pilipinas Gold more than two years ago. 🙂
