94 comments on “Bb. Pilipinas 2017 | The Official Numbers

  1. My current Top 10:

    1. Arienne Calingo
    2. Maria Angelica Deleon
    3. Charmain Elima
    4. Katarina Rodriguez
    5. Serene Sutton
    6. Rachel Peters
    7. Dindi Pajares
    8. Nelda Ibe
    9. Jheza Huelar
    10. Angelique De leon

  2. Itigil na po natin ang pag emphasize sa height factor. Baka nakalimutan niyo na 5’0-5’2 lamang ang average height female Filipino. We forgot where we got our ancestry.

    Ang mahalaga sa akin yung ma-represent niya ang bansa at makita sa kanya ng ibang lahi na tayong mga Pilipino ay may mga magagandang katangian na wala sa iba.

    At kung mix blood siya, dapat dito lumaki ng sa gayon ay alam niya ang kulturang Pilipino.

    • Kumita na yung baBABOYin na drama kay Siera Berchel. Pwede wag nyo ipilit saka nyo ibabash pag di pumayat.

  3. Way too early to make any predictions, but I will say that based on sheer facial beauty alone (especially that which can be appreciated on the international level outside of the Philippines) Elima, Peters, and Sutton are the clear standouts. At the same time, I doubt the hunger element in all three.

    Dindi’s beauty is clearly in large part with the help of her makeup brush and rollers, but I will say the girl has a hunger that I can feel and taste thousands of miles away. She had it last year already. Maybe destiny needed to make her even hungrier. She’s ready to hit the international stage today.

    Angelique de Leon’s spunk and fight have always reminded me of MJ. I’ve always thought she had the goods to be successful internationally and I think this is the year she will actually get that chance.

    Jessica Ramirez has such a bright and joyful beauty. Don’t know much about her or what her comm skills are like, but that face and aura alone would stand out internationally.

    Can’t wait to see how the competition heats up. For now, I hope BbP focuses on girls that can demonstrate hunger to compete internationally. Before beauty, comm skills, height, camp, whatever – a girl needs that hunger if she is going to represent the pageant-obsessed Philippines abroad. We’re not crowning national titleholders alone, we’re crowning titleholders who will compete internationally. In all honesty, this year’s batch has a few winners who seemed content with their lives in the Philippines. And’s that exactly where they ended up. There are girls in this group who have clearly demonstrated they want to do more than come back home, they want to bring home the bacon.

  4. Bb.3… maganda cya… malaAmanda Page n may pagkaKris Pastor ng Pinoy Dream Academy pero naaalala ko s kanya c Matmat n sumasali s Miss Gay… pero parang bagay cya s MGI.
    Bb.13… Kim Ross 2.0… parang mapupunta s supranational.
    Bb.15… Mariel… that hairstyle… yan ang nagpapataba sau.
    Bb.19… ok rin s MGI or Globe
    Bb.24… Dindi… less is more…
    Bb.31… I like her pero sana better outfits and hairstyle… un p namang pagsasalita nya ang type ng IMG.
    Bb.32… most improved pero mukhang nasa calibre nina Janicel… nakakaramdam ako by pagkarunner up.
    Bb.33… Alieen Leng Damiles 2.0
    Bb.34… Maxine Medina Style Award.

  5. Apart from the popular girls I’m rooting for no. 21 Jamaica Ambal. I like her stance.

  6. I bet Mariel De Leon and Charmaine Elima will be the two women last standing. Sa nag-comment below na this is Mariel’s year, I concur. If I may suggest paki-shave lang ng konti ang buhok sa forehead ni Mariel para maging proportionate ng konti. Ganyan ang ginawang remedy kay Charlene nung Miss Universe 1994. Tsaka bawas pa ng konting timbang. Please? Charmaine Elima should know when to peak.

    I feel that Sirene Sutton will get the Miss Anna Fernandina Buquid award this year. Sana mali ako.

    • Kumita na yung baBABOYin na drama kay Siera Berchel. Pwede wag nyo ipilit saka nyo ibabash pag di pumayat. Di siya maganda, maputi at makinis lang at ang balita plastikadang diva!

  7. My wishlist:

    Universe: Mariel De Leon or Charmaine Elima or Arienne Calingo.

    International: Charmaigne Elima, Bianca Saldua, Serene Sutton, Mia Howell, Arienne Calingo, Rachel Peters, Dindi Pajares or Jheza Huelar.

    Intercontinental: Charmaigne Elima, Arianne Calingo, Serene Sutton or Bianca Saldua.

    Supranational: Rachel Peters, Dindi Pajares, Serene Sutton, Jheza Huelar, Kimberly Pajares.

    Grand: Arienne Calingo or Bianca Saldua.

    Global: Rachel Peters, Serene Sutton, Dindi Pajares, Charmaine Elima, Jheza Huelar or Katarina Rodriguez.

    1st/2nd RUp: Arienne Calingo, Bianca Saldua, Katarina Rodriguez, Channel Olive Thomas, Jheza Huelar or Kimberly Pajares.

  8. I think Rachel Peter’s looks great in black straight hair, it makes her look younger and fresh. Go for straight black hair Rachel. Just saying

  9. Hola! Nag Rip na talaga PC ko boooo. Anyway BET na BET ko yung VET! Lakas maka Amanda Page.
    Clenci gandara.
    Dindi – itapon Ang curling iron and ruby red lipstick pero tindig winner
    Katarina – medyo weird katawan pero fez palong Palo
    Sirene – all love wag lang mag pupulang lipstick
    Angelique – jukbitin na korona ng MGI mas fresh sya now
    Mae Liezel – ganda ng transformation
    Rachel – sexy pero nagmumura veneers
    Elima – Patok sa mga international friends

    Miss you guys!

    • Ay si Mariel pala imaginin nyo Kung Pia levels pag payat josko! Uwian na. Clazzz…
      Huelar. Medyo overrated for me pero ang legs my ghad! Mala Brenda azaria ng Puerto rico

      • Mars, balita ko tumatambay ka madalas sa mga forum ng kapitbahay? Hahaha! Anyway, I agree with you. Galingan lang ni Mariel magpapayat, my God, uwian na! Ganda talaga ng mukha ni sissy Mariel, class, yayamanin! Kudaera din s’ya. If I am not mistaken, she is a graduate of Southville International School in Las Pinas where Gwen Ruais also graduated.

    • Dindi’s curly hair is just a NO for me. She looks like she aged 10 years :/ I like the vibrant straight hair Dindi.

      • Yes 4M same sentiments!
        Hola Mike! Yaan nyo bumebwelo lang ako bbp season na. Ambisyon ko sana mas maging involved sa events this year since medyo ilang tumbling lang naman araneta sa bahay! 😉

      • Thank you Philip! Hindi naman ako mawawala lurking lang naman ako minsan 😉

    • Hi! laila wats up?? how are you!???
      Bet mo din si Vet??? pareho tayo ☺️. pero for me she is my top choice for MUP. mix of Miriam Q and Amanda page.

  10. I agree with most people, Mariel De Leon is the girl this year….

    Sya lang yung may umph factor for me lahat hindi rumirehistro…I like Dindi din but ewan parang may kulang.

    And yes, in terms of diversity I would want Mariel to represent Philippines..kasi pag pinagtabi tabi mo mukha ng Miss Philippines since 2010 maloloka ang Universe…The changing face of Miss Philippines.

    Not boring at all….parang there’s always something to look forward to

  11. I think that Mariel de Leon is overrated. I have yet to see her versatility when it comes to hairstyles. Laging ganyang may hair to the face kasi hindi kaya magbun or pullback. We need a beautiful face that is versatile. Look at Pia. Her face can be done so beautifully in different styles. Also IMG is a modeling agency so they want they beauty queens versatile. The crown I would give to Mariel would be International as the highest or intercontinental.

  12. Universe–Mariel de Leon (if she lose weight)
    Or Maine Elima because of her exotic look
    Or Sirene Sutton (watched 1 vid of her conversing in English, medyo sakto lang, trainable)

    International–Katarina Rodriguez (her facial beauty can rival Kylie’s–but needs to work on her body)
    Or Jehza Huelar because of her feminine feautures perfect for Japanese taste

    Supra–Rachel Peters. She’s NOW ready. Supra suits her. Body and beauty wise. Dapat sa Supra yun rampadora, eksenadora at eksaherada.
    Or Dindi Pajares kasi eksenadora din ate niyo

    Intercontinental–Channel Olive Thomas fits the Intercontinental mold. Yun soshal soshal at mukhang mamahalin

    Grand–Arriene Calingo. Her credential is perfect for the stop the war campaign of this presumptuous pageant.

    Globe/United Continents–any of the girls mentioned above who will not get the crown/title

    May nakalimutan ba ako mga tol? Kanya kanyang taste naman to. Hehe! I hope we’ll snatch another alpha crown this year. Ayun lng. K thanks, bye!

  13. The standouts to me in terms of facial beauty are:
    # 3 Maria Gail Tobes
    #10 Jehza Huelar
    #13 Sirene Sutton
    #15 Ma. Angelica De Leon (just wish she wasn’t so stout … while feeling somewhat terrible for being a body fascist)
    #26 Ruffa Nava (I think she has a very refined look about her)
    #32 Charmaine Elima

  14. Sali ka sa Miss World dai di ka pa ba masaya miss Earth ka na o kaya lapit ka kay Ovette dami siya franchise sa Mrs Asia, Universe

    • can’t blame her for feeling bad after hindi siya makapasok because of her age. sana sa umpisa pa lang reject na agad. sana sa umpisa pa lang, hindi na siya sinabak ng KF dahil alam naman nila na overage na si Steph sa BBP Requirements… however……

      Stephany, I must agree that MU is open to having candidates na 28 years old. BUT ang sinalihan mo kasi is Bb. Pilipinas… Not Miss Universe Philippines. if ilalaban kasi natin ang rason mo na ang MU, okay sa 28.. eh magkakaconflict.. are you sure you’re going to win MUP? what if manalo ka as BB International? as BB Supranational and etc. ano nang mangyayari? hindi ka mapapadala just because hindi mo na mami-meet ang isa sa mga requirements nila. ang saklap naman di ba if runner up ka? last try mo na sa pageants.. runner up pa dahil lan sa issue ng age mo.

      both parties naman, may mali.. BPCI and you or your camp. I understand that you feel bad about not being an official candidate.. parang pinaasa lang.. pero kasi… yun nga.. sana.. sa umpisa pa lang… 🙂

    • Most of the other titles’ age limits are between 26-27.
      It’s like she’s assuming she’ll be Miss Universe Philippines already.

    • Stephany had her chance nung Miss Earth. She went to Miss Earth 2012 unprepared. She wasn’t fit. And yet she won Miss Earth-Air. Feeling entitled naman siya. She had her chance and yet she blew it.

    • She is still qualified for MUP. Yun lang naman ang target nya. Pagdating ng deliveration sa finals, kung mapabilang man sya sa mga finalists MUP lang talaga sya pwede. MUP or nothing. Maliit ang chance nya dahil marami ang deserving as MUP. Kaya siguro di na sya tinanggap sa 40 official candidates.

  15. Top 15 (Charette lang pero tandaan hihihi):

    2 Calingo
    5 Mariano
    10 Huelar
    12 De Leon
    13 Sutton
    15 De Leon
    16 Lacap
    18 Ibe
    19 Peters
    22 Thomas
    24 Pajares
    25 Villareal
    31 Rodriguez
    32 Elima
    34 Ortega

  16. Madam stella makinig ka naman. Please, nagmamakawa. BBP is considered as one of the most prestigious beauty pageant pero unti unti ng namgmumukhang joke dahil sa dami ng titles. Ang daming MU at MI calibers na pinapadala mo sa 2nd tier pageants. Sayang madam. Sana baguhin mo ang format ng BBP, 2 major crowns lang ang pag aagawan (MU and MI) at 5 RU para sila yung ipadala mo sa 2nd tier pageants. Kung di man maiuwi ang corona sa 2nd tier pageants eh pwede pa ding sumabak sa susunod na BBP editions. Sayang madam eh. Gawing training international ground yang mga 2nd tier pageants.

    • eh di ganon din! marami pa rin sila! LOL and besides kung ang runner up din naman ang ipapadala sa ‘2nd tier’ pageants mo, again, ganun din ulit. hindi na rin sila pwede sumali kasi nga na represent na nila ang country under BPCI. gets? I think ang gusto mo paratingin is, drop the other pageants na hawak nila and retain MUP, BB International and 1RU.

      • Wrong. Maricar Balagtas was Bb Pilipinas 2RU in 2001 and sent to compete in and won Miss Globe International 2001. Because she was only a RU in the nationals, despite her international crown, she was able to compete in Bb Pilipinas again (her 3rd time too!) and got the Bb Pilipinas Universe title in 2004.

      • So dapat pala palitan ng bpci ang sistema nila.
        Pag nakoronahan na ang isang kandidata maari ulit siya sumali habang qualified pa. Kasehodang mapanalunan nya ang parehong korona. Ex. Christie Lynn McGarry.

    • yeah ganun din. kahit pa runner up sila pero i aapoint sila sa other minor pageant. same din naman. kaibahan lang ginawa silang runner ups kaysa korononahan ng minor titles. pero ang ending isasabak pa rin sa international pageant and allowing them to join next years kahit nagrepresent na sila is not a good idea. pwedeng unfair and pagmulan ng issue na luto ang result kapag sila ang nanalo ulet sa ibang titles.
      The best solution is magkaroon sila ng bbp all star pageant kahit isang taon lang or salitan. sa pageant na yan. yung mga past title holders na hinde nanalo ang sasali but of course if qualified pa ang age nila. in case same title pa din ang makuha nila base sa scores and ranking of titles so b4 announcing the winners bbp will decide for switch titles. yun lang naman ang solution. kahit naka pag represent na sila internationaly ok pa rin dahil all star naman ang pegeant.

  17. ELIMA, Mariel, Nava, Sirene, katarina are the ones with international caliber beauty. Anyone of them can be MU bet. I don’t really care about the other crowns. We all know they are a joke mostly.

  18. Sirene, Sirene, Sirene, Jehza, and Dindi. My picks. Sirene, ofc, is for MUP. Dindi/Jehza for Intercon and MGI. Mariel for Miss International and Elima for MS.

  19. Maghintay na ako muna ng mga ilang araw bago ako magsalita dahil sigurado ako marami sa mga ingiterang palaka ang magkakalkal sa mga makukulay na tinatago ng mga official candidates.

  20. Sana si Sirene huwag na magpa ampon sa kahit na anong camp. Na-manage Niya nga na mag-qualify ng walang camp at talunin yung may mga Meron, SA finals night PA kaya. Si Mutya NGA nanalo ng walang training camp eh. Pa ampon lang si Sirene kung Hindi MS crown Ang makukuha niya otherwise yung “freestyle” na Alam niya yun lang execute Niya para walang pressure. Si Yvette, AQ pero di rin nakuha yung timpla, si Joanna, KF pero di PA rin nakuha yung timpla.

      • Agree naman ako Kay Joanna SA title Niya, nag-underperform lang sa Poland talaga. Pero pangalawa na siya ng Kf after Rogelie and still di PA din nakuha timpla. Si Nicole C may determination naman Kasi talaga. Sabi Niya nga “I know what Nawat is looking for”.

    • nasa girl pa rin naman yan. nasa determination. minsan maling title napunta kaya hinde nag success. minsan ang aga kase isinabak kaya ibang title ang napanalunan at clapper sa patimpalak na sinalihan. Joanna is a proof and janicel lubina. But Having a camp is a good idea and a BIG help. Isipin mo din kung walang A&Q and other camps. Hinde ganito ang Philippine Pageant World kung ano man tayo ngayon. Yang mga independent na yan sa mga camps din sila nakakakuha ng mga ideas on how to walk. how to talk and so on….

  21. Ang ganda ng kuha dun sa iba ang background kesa sa pulang backdrop. May favoritism? #AllTeaNoShade

    • yes ang ganda ng kuha pero waley pa rin! yung last year kahit sa hallway lang ng araneta, maganda effect! Jusmio. lol sorry naiinis tlaga ako sa photos nila!

      Yung photos ang minadali.. yung announcement hindi. charot lang.

  22. Okay lang kahit d ganun kagandahan or smart ang ipadala sa Ms. intl tutal clap clap din nman mananalo jan ala Guidotti

  23. Based on photos, i would choose elima and mariel deleon as the prettiest, mukang beauty queen. Runner up si nava. Mariel has a lot of work to do with regards to her shape.

  24. isa din ako na importante ang height .kung pa pyramid ito 11 to 30 ang 5’6 above. so 20 girls ang 5’6 below

    • Di ba 5’6″ na ang minimum height requirement ng BbP? O baka bumalik na sa 5’5″?

    • @ Ms.Tissa 5’5 they let it pass. Alita and Juelar are both 5’5. now Juelar is number 10 so that means if pa pyramid line up di nasunod ang 5’6 requirements

  25. I am focusing on the best pick for Intercontinental and Grand International because we have not won these yet. Obviously , they cannot be the top candidates because those should go to MU.

    I think Dindi Pajares for Grand International and Katarina Rodriguez for Intercontinental.

    For Universe ? Hmmm…. Mariel de Leon but she should work out hard and work out plenty, OR Charmaine Elima but is she tall enough and speak a lot better now ?

    Ruffa Nava ? Sirene Sutton ?

      • Obvious ba? Hihihi… ayoko kasi nakikita ang mga pambato natin na nanliliit pag katabi na ang mga latina! Hihihi

    • Kung ang numbering ay parehas ng previous years, most probably yung matatangkad ang nasa middle numbers like 18,19,20,21,22. Yung mga di katangkaran ay nasa 1,2,3,4,5 at 36,37,38,39,40

      • Naku e di below 5’6″ pala sina Katarina Rodriguez, Charmaine Elima at Jehza Huelar? Kasama pa naman sila sa top choices ko.

      • ms. Tissa. ako din choice ko si Elima at Calingo but if pa pyramid line up Jehza being number 10 is 5’5. Si Angelique De Leon at 5’6 number 12. at least 20 girls are below 5’6.
        Height is might . If Bb will follow the requirements di aabot ng 40

      • Actually di naman kailangan paabutin ng 40 ang mga official candidates. Mas mahirap i-judge ang marami. Di bale sana kung may pre pageant. Mas ok sana kung 24 to 30 na lang.

        Sabagay si MJ Lastimosa palagay ko 5’6″ lang din. Pia is 5’7″, Maxine is 5’7-1/2″

  26. Im not going to pick any faves this year. I didn’t do very well last year.
    I picked 6 last year and stuck with them throughout. Of my 6 picks. only Kylie V. made the winners circle… and eventually struck gold by winning MI 2016.

    Im just going to relax and enjoy the developments into the coronation event.
    May the winners circle be a grand celebration of Filipina beauties…again!

  27. For me , Dindi is the stand out . She should be MUP.
    Alternatives are Peters and Jehza.

    Colingo is too short … at kulang sa beauty . But she seems very put together.
    I’m not impressed with Mariel . She sounds immature And shy . Her beauty is… let’s just say I wish she looked more like her dad

    Elima is a beauty but her speaking skillls are definitely in need of improvement . At least With Dindi, she may not talk like she were from Poveda. But At least she is street smart and can respond to just abt anything with confidence .. at least I hope soo.
    To those who say Dindi looks Vietnamese , what’s wrong with that ? Tse hihihi

    • i will put Maria Gail rather than rachel peters. Dindi pasado saken. Jehza yes na yes. ive seen something on her eyes. pero parang pang MI ang ginagawa sa kanya ng aces eh. kina kylie Versoza. i like her style during last day of screening. Ma style lang sya ng tama, pang MUisssh at ma ace nya ang intervirew at Q&A. May laban yan sa MUP even in MU.
      Pero mas bet ko si Dindi sa supra.
      Maria Gail is my top choice for Universe. Her name is shooo innn!!!
      #PanaloTOBES #WinnerTOBES

      • Filipinang Filipina si Tobes. Her comm skills body and styling carry na!! ma te trained pa naman yan. she looks like Miriam Q and a sexy actress, forgot her name.

      • Yup 3 looks good
        I don’t know most of the candidates
        So my choice may change as the contest progresses.
        I just like Dindi’s open’ personality . I was not a fan last yr . But I started liking her after watching last yr’s replay and the recent videos.

    • ETO NA NAMAN TONG BAKLANG TO. SHY AND IMMATURE DAW SI MARIEL HAHAHAH TOO COY SI ELIMA! NENG KUNG MAHIYAIN ANG MGA YAN HINDI SILA SASALI SA NATIONALS NOT ONCE BUT TWICE! WALA KANG ALAM SA BEAUTY NENG KAYA MANAHAMIK KA 😂😂😂

    • Vietnam is part of the ASEAN belt. Ang mga Pinoy kasi masyadong mapagmataas. Pumunta ka ng Thailand o Indonesia mapagkakamalan mo din Silang Pinoy. Ganun din Tayo pag pumunta SA bansa NILA. Kaya maraming naiinis SA atin. Akala yata ng mga Pinoy eh pinsan natin Ang mga Espanyol.

    • @wglitz yup, amanda page. Same tayo ng feeling kay Dindi Fabian. Hinde ko din maintindihan. but i am liking her so much this year. Talagang Convinced ako na sa supra ko sya ipapadala but if she will show me what i am expecting for her come finals. sya ang pakokoronahan kong MUP if ako si SMA. charot! and if japan ang host ng MU2017 at si Dindi ang nanalong bbp universe. May laban tayo! kaya sana naman ma announce agad agad kung saan ba talaga. Sa Australia or Japan.

  28. Just my humble Opinion, Number 15 is the fairest candidate in this batch. Sana double time ang pagda diet at pag gigym para pak na pak na ang body come Coronation Night.
