51 comments on “First Impressions: The Binibinis who stood out yesterday

  1. Catriona Gray – MUP
    Karen Gallman – MI
    Anjame Magbitang – Supra (She reminds me of Ana Fernandina Buquid, raw & fresh)
    Michelle Gumabao – Globe
    Sandra Lemonon – MGI
    Wynona Buot – Possible darkhorse/spoiler that might snatch a major crown (watch out for her)

  2. Oh No ! Katrina is runner up to Miss Intercontinental (another McGarry). I think she deserved to win.
    Why can’t we bag this crown… I previously commented that K Gallman must be sent to MGI to bag our first crown there. Now, K Gallman should be sent to Intercontinental next year… Buot or Magbintang for MGI

  3. comparing cat to the vertically inclined .It’s like orange (cat) vs kyat kyat orange ( the 5’5 candidate)

  4. Anjame is indeed a BREATH of FRESH air…while CAT is a shoo-in, i get distracted by her nose. Gumabao is turning into a real surpriser as a beauty but she is 26 going 27…GALLMAN is too foreign and small…Abesamis need to tone down in the weight dept but she looks very good when made-up..EVA can pull a surprise too….hmmmm i don’t like ung mga blondie ha ha BUT THERE ARE A LOT OF BEAUTIFUL GIRLS…si Kapeundl din!

  5. away away jusko
    wala sa mga kamay naten ang desisyon
    na kay madam
    kaya ang gawin nyo mga catertards eh puntahan si madam SMA at kuyugin nyo

  6. A. Girls who have the umph/it factor as of my recent viewings…

    Catriona Gray
    Karen Galman
    Sandra Lemonon
    Winona Buot
    Ana Patricia Asturias

    B. Has the potential to surprise in the finals night
    (just how I felt like when I first glanced at Elizabeth Clenci, Ellore Punzalan, Maxine Medina and several surprised finalists who are under the radar and made the semis)

    Ros Antonette Mendoza (may arrive sya)
    Henna Kaizelle Cajandig (she’s blossoming I would say)

    C. On the fence…

    Michelle Gumabao
    Jehza Huelar
    Samantha Bernardo

    D. I don’t understand the HYPE girls

    Aya Abesamis
    Eva Patalinjug (She’s pretty but I really think she doesn’t have it)

    PREDICTIONS….

    On Catriona:
    She’s the ‘perfectly imperfect perfect’. The good thing about her is that when you look at her up close, you notice all the imperfections but when you see her as a whole (the sum of all her parts) she resembles a powerful image of someone who is worth aspiring to be- both girls and gays. However, the biggest downfall for her that I am being ridiculously concerned about is that if the judges were majority female or former Bb Pilipinas Title Holder, I think Catriona will not win. Inggit factor (insecurities) will prevail I would say.

    But come finals night, I know everyone has the ability to steal the show. Last year I’m not a fan of Sirene Sutton leading into the coronation night, but when the introduction dance started….My eyes were glued on her.. Yung dating, the movement, the projection…attention grabbing.

  7. Karen Gallman’s face is like a cross between Kiera Knightly and Mila Kunis… She should become an actress after this….

    I love Anjame Magbitang’s rawness…
    Shhe is a natural beauty

    Wynonah Buot is a Chameleon… and a smart one.

    Murrielle Orais is very well proportioned and polished.

    I love the slow transformation of Micheĺle Gumabao… I have a feeling that she would look llike Irene Esser in the finals…

    Aya Abesamis’ face is so symetrical… She’s also a chameleon.

    I saw Catriona’s video for BBP and she nailed it…
    CATRIONA GRAY IS MY MISS UNIVERSE 2018!!!!

  8. The anti-Catriona fans are trying to put down her beauty. What they can’t deny is that Cat is loved by many not just because of her indisputable superior looks. No one can match her height (except for two), brains and communication skills (enough said). She also seems to have a sincere kind heart.

    Some of the girls have beautiful faces, some are tall, some smart and some with great advocacies but there is no other girl, you’ll find all that in one.

    Catriona Gray for the win! 👍👍👍

      • Hay nako, star, I see your true colors shining true! Charotella! Haha. Ayan ka na naman sa “baka ma choochoo yan” “baka ma chekchak yan” chorba mo! Again and agan and again, different girls, different stories yan. Naubusan ka na ng cocompare mo, ngayon si colombia na naman hinalungkat mo. Listen sa mga criticisms at use that to improve yang mga bets niyo, kesa nagchochorba kayo ng mga walang katuturang echos. Dahil ba sa mga new posts keh cat kaya bigla nagulantang ang mga threatened nerves niyo at nagkakalat kayo dito? Make sure valid yang mga negacritizizems niyo bago idaldal or magmumukangtanga lang. Echosera ka! Akala ko pa naman cute ka, bitwin. Hmmmp tse! Hihihi😂😻

      • Google “overrated” tita! You are using it wrong. Overrated is someone na madaming hype pero doesn’t meet expectations. Cat exceeds expectations. Hindi lang pinoys ang nakakapansin niyan, pati latinos at enemies naten na indogs at thais si Cat ang bet. I think you are mistaking your “inggit feelings” sa mga nakikita mong army of fans ni cat. Hindi dahil marami siyang believer at supporters eh “overrated” na. Pero understand ko ang feelings mo. Unconscious ka na envious. You don’t realize it kasi lunod ka masiyado sa fantasy that you can’t see the reality.

      • Overrated? People are basing their support for Cat on a clear track record of what they’ve seen:

        Beauty
        Superior height
        Excellent Comm skills (as proven in Miss World and other interviews)
        A clear advocacy

        Her seeming kindness and sincerity are just bonuses.

  9. What if mala Kylie Versoza ang kahinatnan ni Catriona,? Yung feeling na ikaw yung leading sa mga Pre Pageant activities at bet ng mga Sangkabaklaan para sa MUP crown pero biglang naunsyami at napunta sa ibang kandidata? hehe, kaya watch out Catriona ,Palaban kasi ang halos lahat!!

    • @ star : Good afternoon/morning/evening.

      My sentiments, too. The Gray Cat is undeniable, indeed. However, SMA needs to take EVERYBODY into consideration. And MI is not too bad, either…

    • Kylie VerZoSa was indeed the best pick during 2016 BbP but it was a strategic placement noh, SMA put her in MI which she eventually won because she knew that a back-to-back Miss Universe victory in your own country was impossible. Had she placed Kylie in MUP, we would not have our 6th Miss International.

    • THAT WONT HAPPEN, BITWIN. IBA ANG LEVEL NG BEAUTY NI CAT KEH KEHLIE. SA BATCH NI KEHLIE SI MAXINE TALAGA ANG PINAKA-ANGAT SA BEAUTY SA FEZ. IBA ANG LEVEL NI CAT SA ALL ASPECTS SA LAHAT NG PAST BBP WINNERS. DIFFERENT GIRLS, DIFFERENT STORY. IBA-IBA KAPALARAN NIYAN.

      PANSIN KO LANG ANG MGA JINGGITERZ DITO EH FANINGS NUNG KWAREN PUNGGOK GULAMAN. YUN ANG PARANAG SIRANG PLAKA NA PAULIT ULIT ANG LAIT KEH CAT. GLORIAMURINGWURZTBACH” BA NAME NON? WALA NA MALAIT KASI WALA NAMAN TALAGA MAPIPINTAS KAYA ULIT ULIT NA LANG SIYA DUN SA SIRANG PLAKANG COMMENT NIYA. IM SURE PAKAWALA NG KF YAN, OR TALAGA INGGIT NA CHAKANG VAKLA LANG. MAY NABASA AKO NA COMMENT NG COMMENT SA BET NIYA NA SI KWAREN PUNGGOK GULAMAN SA PAST POSTS DITO. NABISTO KO, NGAYON TODO PANGGAP NA IBA DAW ANG BET.

      YANG MGA INGGETERANG FANINGS NA YAN NA WALA NAMANG VALID NA NEGATIVE CRITICISMS ANG TUNAY NA THREATENED. NAKO, NAKO, NAKO!! WAG AKO, JZUNJZUN! WAG AKO! AT PAGSASASAMPALIN KO TALAGA KAYO PAG DI KAYO TUMIGIL DIYANG MGA BAKLUSH NA HALIPAROT KAYO!! 😂🤣🤭😂😘

      • Hoy Baklitang Angela, Nahiya naman si Demi Leigh Neil Peters at Piana di katangkaran sa mga hanash mo. Cheee

      • GALIT? MAG INHALE EXHALE KA MUNA, BITWIN. NILALAMON KA NA MASIYADO NG INGGIT MO. 😉😘

    • If ever that happens, that means SMA didn’t do her homework neither learns from the lesson of the previous edition.

      Calibrating from the last three edition of MU, can you at least name 5 candidate who are worthy for the MUP crown?

  10. Habang palapit ng palapit ang finals ay itong si Ateng Karen Gallman ay lumalaban na and Screams “Hindi Pa Tapos ang Laban” Seriously, Karen stands out in this photo.. Exciting!!

    • IF ONLY KWAREN WAS 5 INCHES TALLER… AND YAN ANG FACE SANS MAKEUP.
      KF, BAKIT DI KAYO MAGFOCUS DUN KAY ANJAME. THIS GIRL NA GINAGAWA NIYONG PANTAPAT KEH CAT EH LITERAL NA LALAMUNIN LANG SA HEIGHT AND OTHER DEPARTMENTS.

      KUNG AKO SAINYO, I WOULD CHOOSE ANJAME NA POLAR OPPOSITE NI CAT. DONT CHOOSE SOMEONE NA SAME KAY CAT PERO LESSER IN TERMS SA HEIGHT, FACE AT DIFFERENT ASPECTS. MAS MAY CHANCE KAYO KAYA ANJAME. THIS COULD BE A PIA VS JANICEL 2.0. WHO KNOWS THIS TIME SAINYO NA MAPUNTA ANG SWERTE? DAHIL TO BE HONEST SI ANJAME LANG NGAYON ANG NAKIKITA KO NA KAYANG KALABANIN SI CAT. SO SANA WAG NIYO SIYA SAYANGIN. ANJAME HAS A HUGE POTENTIAL. NANDIYAN NA LAHAT NG GOODS, CULTIVATE NA LANG YAN AT NG MAGBLOSSOM PA. 😘

  11. Huaw! Based on the pictures, Numbers 3 (Orais), 11 (Verdadero), 19 (Gumabao), 21 (Magbitang), 26 (Buot), 31 (Jehza), 32 (Patalingjud), Gallman (38). Pasensha pero si Catriona ay drowned in the number of beauties, she should watch out, passe na siya. But there’s still Miss Earth for her.

  12. being no. 2, K Gallman is a top bet for MI 2018 but now I am thinking perhaps better to send her to MGI 2018 in order to secure our very first MGI crown… she’s very strong candidate

  13. Top 6 as of now in no particular order:

    Catriona Gray
    Jehza Huelar
    Wynonah Buot
    Michelle Gumabao
    Anjame Magbitang
    Kayesha Chua

    Bubbling up:

    Murielle Orais
    Eva Patalinjug
    Aya Abesamis

    • Ehh kung ang ‘flagbearer’ (in name only) ba naman eh si Kezia then you’d know they’re in big trouble lol. But the KF girls this year are indeed gorgeous.

  14. I agree mostly with the choices of Mr. Norman. This is indeed a good batch.

    Some realization:

    1) These girls look pretty and natural as opposed to their fully made up previous photos.

    2) Facially stand outs from the photos above: Gumabao, Orais, Gray, Patalinghug, Lemonon (The prettiest of the 15), Buot,

    Catriona should watch out, more and more (dare I say prettier) faces surfacing as the days go by. She should offer more than the strong initial (albeit, well deserved ) hype.

    3) What is the etiquette on using the title “Dr.” when joining a non-medical situation? I just find it VERY pretentious.

    4) Romero and Velasco = Neck and Neck on the title Ms. Veneers 2018.

    5) Magbitang – young, fresh faced candidate. It is she I am most excited about on what proper training can do to further improve her.

    6) Pretty as in pretty girl next door type but not beauty queen material. Chua and Artajos. I have seen more attractive SM sales ladies.

    7) Finally, she-whose-name-shall-never-be-mentioned: I would still be happy if the blogger just chose top 14. Again, she is not pretty. Pokwang with a wide face and a horrible, horrible eye make up.

    8) Congratulations to Joy Arguil. Nice, professionally shot photos above.

    World Peace.

    • I agree with all your points, Thomas! I especially agree with #2-#5. I also find Sandra to be the prettiest, but she needs more grit. It’s like she’s just there. And, yes, Anjame, is a great find. I’ve been a fan since Day 1. She does need more training. I wouldn’t oppose a runner-up placement for now.

      The veneers of Velasco and Romero are indeed very distracting. I wonder if the dentists purposely use larger-sized veneers, or if the girls actually request for them?

  15. Bb 27 should be up there imo I always forget her name lol I think it was Henna or something. Catriona, Karen, Jehzah, and Wynonah are such Goddesses in those pics.

  16. so HAPPY to see Eva in this look… this is how i always wanted her to present herself in public .. see? she looks amazing in a crispier and cleaner look.. love it! 🙂 go ameygah 🙂 meanwhile cat is very consistent and a league of her own. mich gumabao is morphing into becoming a beautiful swan.. lemonon is gorgoeus too. wynona is fabulous and bewitching. karen gallman is catching up fast in the frontline! wow.. this competition is getting exciting ! 🙂

    • I agree.

      I totally disliked Eva in the previous posts because she looked mature (think Geneva Cruz, meets Carmi Martin). But the photos above did her justice.

      Lemonon is giving off the sultry, Latina vibe.

      Pleasant surprise is Gumabao. Looking more and more a pageant queen than an athlete.

  17. NO umay factor, courtesy of Buot, Chua, Gumabao, Lemonon, and Romero.

    Huelar and Gray are PEAKING PREMATURELY REALLY FAST. (sigh)

    Magbitang is OK. Patalinjug is erratic. Gallman is hit-or-miss. And Orais looks like she OWNS.
