Trailing behind the Scintillating Seven in my opinion – but not significantly lagging in terms of performance – are these six Binibinis I have temporarily christened as “Stepping-Up Six”, or the ones who elicited additional oohs & aahs and have managed to make spectators lovingly stare at them longer than necessary.
Binibini 27 Dindi Pajares – our favorite Flight Attendant (that effectively prevents her from being named Miss PAL) is doing more than alright. She has an enchanting smile that beckons and an over-all aura that disarms. Binibini 16 Vina Openiano is almost on the same boat. She certainly knows how to turn on the heat onstage. She has a very lilting presence that made some member of the Press happy with her presentation, not to mention a knockout figure that is hard to miss.
Moving on, Binibini 26 Jennifer Hammond showed everyone what years of experience on the runway brought to her stance and projection. She also has a shapely figure that adds up to her magnetic appeal. And how about Binibini 14 Paula Rich Bartolome? People are still amazed how less than a year of preparation transformed this rep of Narvacan, Ilocos Sur into a real fighter. She won’t go unnoticed, that’s for sure.
Lastly, we have a duo of pageant newbies doing all first-timers proud. Binibini 37 Jehza Huelar and Binibini 13 Joanna Eden are your perfect examples of natural charmers who can give the highly-trained contenders a strong run for the money. It helps even more that they have different brands of strong personalities that anyone can discover after engaging them in interviews.
So who are you giving the thumbs up among the “Stepping-Up Six” Binibinis, dear readers? 🙂
