  1. I wish all the candidates best fit & kept ur pretty up to best.. #65thmissuniversePH #Missuniverse2015 @piawurtzbach

  2. I don’t get it why would they allow Stepanhy Stefanowitz to screen and eventually get ignored for the top40 spot. I saw her in motion and definitely she’s waaay better than some girls who made it in the top40—-anyare?? If it’s age related, they should have just told her outright that she’s already overage. She may not be the prettiest, but her total package supersedes some of those chosen girls. On the other hand, i was a fan iof DINDI last year but her 60s hairstyle is making her outdated. Mariel girl, your face alone can guarantee a crown pero lose those baby fats bes! Sayang ang ganda, nyeta! You have the face already! Get your act together and give the netizens the body they want and deserve! My top6: Sirene Sutton, Maine Elima,Rachel Peters,Dindi Pajares, Arriene Calingo and Mariel De Leon. Si Jehza Huelar parang di nman nag version 2.0 anuba! Prove me wrong baby Jehza. Transform and don’t settle for a runner up! Labaaaan! By the way, hopia ako kila Cynthia Thomalia, Patch Magtanong, Diana Mackey at Daisha Jimenez! Oh sya, abangers na tayo sa BBP para sa susunod na sisigaw ng Felipeeeens!!! Ayun lang! K thanks, bye!!!

  3. Okey, Binibining Pilipinas officially kicks in. It is another very interesting episode of the most prestigious national beauty pageant in the country wherein the seasoned veterans and fresh faces blend and will fight hard to win the Binibini crowns (or, shall I say, “title” because the BbP crowns are not worth fighting for). ☺

    I’ll be biased at this moment with the veterans, for we are not yet familiar with the fresh faces. Seeing those familiar faces in pageants, I could say that three of them are most stunning (and are guaranteed of the crowns): Mariel De Leon, Chanel Olive Thomas, and Charmaine Elima. As I have always been saying here, Mariel’s alpha beauty can hardly be ignored in international pageants. She is very pleasing to the eyes. Not only that, she speaks eloquently and exudes regal bearing. It is either MUP or Miss International for her. She will neck-in-neck compete with Charmaine Elima. Charmaine’s exotic feature and well-defined facial structure are hard to miss. She is well prepared and (I believe) has improved in communication skills department. Chanel Olive Thomas’ beauty is hollywood-mold and not difficult to style. But, I think Miss Grand International suits her because, in that pageant, she is deemed a superbeauty.

    Rachel Peters is also a shoo-in for any BbP crowns. However, I don’t see her that strong yet. I mean with a few of beautiful fresh faces in the list, she might be snatched in.

    Now, let’s talk about Sirene Sutton. This girl is effortlessly stunning. I like her facial features, and she looks tall! However, without any camp taking care of her styling and make up, I can see her downfall in the end. Has she ever been advised to go on tanned skin? I hope she would consider it.

    Jehza Huelar is well experienced. She has a lot more advantage than any other girls in the pageant because of her acquaintance with the organization plus the training she had attended as part of her prize as BbP 2016 second runner-up. However for me, I don’t find her face stunning. I don’t know if it is just me, but I find her eyes’ gap a little less appealing. She is like the Gilrhea Quinzon of her generation.

    Dindi Pajares is vibrant. But then again, her Vietnamese feature is not inviting and captivating. Has AnQ considered re-branding her beauty by making her Filipinized?

    Nelda Ibe is simply beautiful. I hope she has upped her game this time. Height is might. So is Ruffa Nava.

    I think the 40 final picks are not yet final. BPCI is true in its tradition of kicking out the girls who lied in their application and hid their seemingly scandalous photos from the BPCI screening committee. Let’s all find out soon!

  4. I thought this will be a hard year to pick the top 15, was wrong:
    1. Tiffany Nava
    2. Katrina Rodriguez
    3. Diesel Ramos
    4. Nelda Ib re
    5. Chanel Thom as s
    6. Maine Elima
    7. Sirens Sutton
    8. Angelique Deleon
    9. Beth Clenci
    10. Kim Pajares
    11. Mariel Deleon
    12. Jehza Huelar
    13. Find Pajares
    14. Rachel Peters
    15. Arienne Calingo

    • 13 Dindi
      My top picks
      Elima, Mariel, Dindi, Katrina, Rachel, Sirene, Chanel, Jehza
      Arienne will sneak in with her awesome interview skill.

  5. Ngayong nagkaalaman na, I want to simplify the Top 15 based on lessons learned last year:

    (1) Tip ni Ate Kylie, “BF o Corona” kaya Ang may jowa ligwak SA listahan or Kung Meron man “cool off” Muna.

    (2) Tatlong korona lang ang may importansiya ngayong taon na’to: MUP, MGI at MS. Walang b2b SA MI kaya huwag na Padala PA ng creme ala creme na kandidata. Ang MCon mentras na inaasam korona na Yan lalong nangaasar. Huwag kalimutan Ang ginawa NILA kay JHam! Ang MGlobe, naging importante lang naman Yan nung nilagay SA BPCI.

    (3) Wala namang Q&A Ang MI, kailangan lang na consistent Yung kandidata from day 1 ng competition at maaninag yon sa Final speech Niya. Ito ay kung nagaasam si SMA ng posibleng b2b.

    (4) Si Sovietskaya nanalo SA MCon ng ikalawang pwesto sa panahon na Wala pang mga training camps. Naulit ni Christy Lynn. Sa coronation last year, si JHam lang Ang satisfied SA Korona nakuha niya. Siya PA ang sinabotahe Nung lumaban siya. Papadala pa ba ng ISA pang magaling diyan?

    (5) Si Calingo nagtrabaho SA embahada at nagtapos SA kolehiyo ng mga Presidente. Magandang pandagdag SA credentials Niya ang “stop the war” at Kung “diplomacy” din naman Ang usapan. If u get what I mean?

    (6) di ko Alam Kung sino PA ang mga modelo SA mga kandidata pero nakita ko na profile ni Sirene at naniniwala ako na kakayanin Niya ang MS.

    (7) Si Sierra, Kristal, Keity ay mga repeater ng patimpalak. Ganun din si Olivia at Flora. Ang gus2 ko MUP eh repeater din na may ibubuga. Wala na ko maisip pa kundi si Dindi.

    (8) SA natitira pang 4 na korona (dahil 7 DAW ngayong taon na Ito) bet ko si Mariel (Kung matututunan niyang maging engaging), si Maine at Dane.

    Yun lang. Bitter na kung bitter. #parasapilipinas

    • Hinde naman tinik si Steffany. over age talaga sya. even if her age is qualify in MU pero sa bbp hinde. waley pa rin. hinde naman sure kung MUP ang makuha nya. pano kung minor title makuha nya at hinde na pwede ang age nya don so anung gagawin magpapalit sila ng crown at ilalagay sya sa MUP na kung saan don nalang sya pwede. hinde papayag ang MUP title holder nan. unfair kapag magpalit. Ang hirap kase sa KF hinde nag base sa age requirements ng bbp. don sila nag base sa Age requirement ng MU. Hinde muna nagtanong sa bbp org. kaya sila ang i blame and not bbp. pero mali din ang bbp org. hinde nag reresearch ng maayos. kung kailan last day na tsaka pa eh they submitted their forms days ago so dapat dun pa lang nag ano na sila. Pero its KF fault talaga. masyado over confident na makuha MUP kaya pinush nila si Steffany to join. bakit hinde pa last year. kung kailan mag oover age na tsaka pa. samantalang yung murang idad ang aga isabak pero mga hilaw pa. janicel and Joanna are the evidence.

  6. Good top 40. But as always expect 2or 3 to be out of the official candidates for some reasons. This means may pag-asa pa si Mia et al. Di pa tapos ang laban! Off hand, I’m loving these girls – Katarina, Sirene, Mariel, Dindi. Beautiful faces.

  7. Hueler, Angelique de Leon, Elima, Sutton are my big 4 at the moment. It will obviously change as we get deeper in the competition. Let the games begin!!

  8. Hay naku, puede malaman kung sino ang mga members of the screening committee at saang camp sila affiliated kasi abot dito sa kama ko ang amoy sa screening hihihi charette na naman tayo 🙂
    Kung ako ang masusunod, ibigay ko ang 2 korona sa mga Pajares hihihi
    Inday Jehza Huelar my BbPilipinas Universe, galingan mo manay para magpapakain ako ng grilled panga sa mga taga Aces and Queens sa Luz Kinilaw hihihi 🙂

      • Ewan ko 4M, diko matanggap na wala raw nakalusot sa mga taga JDV kung totoo man hihihi at ang mga KF beauties ay magwewelga raw sa EDSA kasama ni Lolo Jimmy P bwihihihi
        Sinasabi ko na nga ba at panalo na naman ang sash factor team at magpapapresscon na yan sa mga bayarang mainstream media at internat’l media sabay paandar at dramang Bigtime na wala akong kasalanan at yan ay gawagawa lamang ni Bong700 hihihi
        Sabay litanya naman ni Camp Tenllanes na ilabas ang 100 na bank acct ng BbPilipinas dahil may nakatagong transaksyon na 1 billion pesos na kailangang iexplin sa mundo ng kabaklaanlandia hihihi charette lang na napakabongga 🙂

      • hihi hay bong700 oo napupulitika pati ang beauty pageants… for the philippines naman daw kasi eh. the most questionable one was the stefanowitz girl because of the age. like why would you even allow her to move to 55 if she isnt qualified in the first place. chaaarrrrret

  9. Mia Howell is out as well. My gahd. Mas deserving si Mia compared sa ibang nakapasok. And imposibleng sumablay siya sa Q&A. What happened kaya?

  10. Nakakaloka na wala si Stephany. Ang sabi overage daw. Edi sana in the first place di na tinanggap sa initial screening pa lang.

    May nakita kong pic ni Rachel Peters na nakaswimsuit. Nilamon niya sina Dindi and Mariel. They should step up their game kung ayaw nila mapagiwanan. And wag lang sana humalakhak ulet tong si Rachel sa Q&A malakas laban neto.

    • I was thinking the same thing… age is very basic information of a candidate. She should have not been allowed to screen if the rules were that clear in the first place. Giving false hope to a candidate is worse than rejecting the application outright.

      • Yes I agree. Ang tanong who is at fault? I believe nakalagay sa Official requirements ng Binibining Pilipinas na 18-26 years old lang and Stephany is already 27.

      • @chris007: Right, the panel should have just told Stef before the screening that she didn’t qualify due to her age, rather than give her false hope and make her jump through hoops.

        Besides, Miss Universe just changed their age limit to 28. Is the panel aware of this? In which case, Stef at 27 should still be eligible to compete for the MUP title.
