Hers is the Bb. Pilipinas 2018 candidacy that can be considered a much-ballyhooed pageant extravaganza in itself. Even weeks before the actual filing of application to the day that she showed up at the BPCI Office, the cheers and crowd support of fans and supporters remained unwavering. Intrigues started to erupt the moment she declared her Independent status in the competition, inspite of the expectations of many that she is an Aces & Queens entry. Not a few complained the sketchy arrangement of support that she will get fromn the said beauty camp or the individuals who are backing up her bid with such zealous enthusiasm. In the end, she made clear once and for all that she is indeed an Independent through and through.
That spawned more controversial attacks on her journey as a Binibini. There were rumors that this beautiful Fil-Aussie is starting to feel the alienation of sorts from people she spent days, weeks and months with. At any rate, Cat stood tall and held her ground amidst the bashings that followed. Very recently, there were malicious postings from individuals who created separate Facebook accounts using the names of Ian and Normita – her parents. That could be the pinnacle of a smear campaign, inspite of every pageant enthusiast in the know who can attest to the dignity and reputation of her elders.
Be that as it may, Cat continues to dodge all the bullets coming her way. In just a matter of days, we will all know if the highest crown will land on top of her head and become the very first Philippine candidate to represent us in both Miss World and Miss Universe.
