Since I have already completed my Final Predictions for Miss Universe Philippines | Bb. Pilipinas 2019 titleholders, let me share the two runners-up in my list.
Even at the onset of competition, I have always been consistent in discussing to my pageant media colleagues that Hannah Arnold is a potential Miss Universe Philippines winner if she will return in 2020 – by which time all the loose threads in her preparations will have been neatly stitched for one big final viewing.
Yes, I know. Jessarie Dumaguing is not even in my list of Top 20 released earlier last week. But her performance of late has convinced me that I should’ve included her in the first place. And for this lady from Puerto Princesa to advance to the Top 15 and inch her way up to the winners’ circle is not an impossibility by now.
That being said, I will share four (4) big spoilers on Sunday night aside from Jessarie:
If anyone among Ilene de Vera, Resham Ramirez Saeed, Samantha Lo and Nicole Guerrero will get the biggest break when it matters most, then expect one or two of them to get past the expected winners and get their due rewards.
