1) Miss Universe Philippines
2) Bb. Pilipinas International
3) Bb. Pilipinas Grand International
4) Bb. Pilipinas Supranational
5) Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental
6) Miss Globe Philippines
This could only mean that Miss Grand International has already earned sufficient stripes to move up the ladder. Thanks in part to the commendable staging of the last edition in Las Vegas and the near-win of Nicole Cordoves in the same.
Of course, the old line that says all titles are of equal ranking no longer applies. Only the crowns of Maxine Medina and Kylie Verzosa are being equally classified on top. And this points to previous talks that the format of the finals will be so different that the last two women standing will literally pass through the eye of a needle before knowing who gets what pageant assignment for 2017.
