Another buzz-worthy lady being whispered in our circles as considering a glide into the pageant trail this 2018 is runway diva and former Asia’s Next Top Model runner-up Monika Santa Maria. Actually, she has been constantly wooed to make the cross-over as far as I can remember. And next year, should be the right (and ripe) time to do so. She already turned 26 last July. Methinks that potential familiar-looking joiners are taking their sweet time to sign up because the preference seems to be more for those approaching or in their mid-20s.
Monika shouldn’t find difficulty transitioning from fashion model to beauty pageant candidate. By now, the line between the two has significantly blurred that the common thread most crucial to nail success in either is personality – something she may need to work extra on, but should be able to fit the mold given her trainings and exposures.
So is Monika 100% on the loop for 2018 Binibining Pilipinas? We will find out soon!
