When Chanel Olive Thomas started her journey as your #Binibini22 of Bb. Pilipinas 2017, it was preceded by almost two qualifying years that started when she participated and was named Miss Air during Miss Philippines Earth 2015. Residency was a must and she set herself up to establishing the Philippines as her home base ever since she flew from Down Under to realize the dream of being part of the nationals and hopefully wearing the country’s sash in an international pageant. I finally tracked her down late yesterday and threw in the two questions that I have asked the other ladies for this second round of features about them.
1) Pageant fans have installed you as one of the several favorites for this year’s titles. But still, you cannot do away with the doubters. What can they expect from you within the next couple of weeks to erase their reservations and become total Chanel converts?
“I believe that there will always be doubters but I humbly say that if this is my destiny, it will come to pass. I trust God and his plans for my life so I just promise to you all that everyday, I will keep giving it my 100%. That everyday I am improving and growing into the best version of myself. A person that is capable and worthy to be one of this year’s titleholders and represent her country internationally.”
2) In just over two weeks from now, a new set of Bb. Pilipinas titleholders will be crowned. Why should you be one of them?
“I am 100% committed to this, and I want nothing more than to represent my country internationally. I want to use my journey to the crown to inspire and empower young girls and women to be the best version of themselves, and that’s what motivates me every single day.”

Chanel Olive Thomas is in it for the long haul and if she is granted with the chance to win one of the crowns, then she will elevate her commitment to the title even more. 🙂
