This information does not exactly come from the grapevine of rumors, but more of reality biting in.
Last Sunday, I was on the phone with a media colleague who accidentally mentioned that there should be no more last-minute additions to the remaining 35 Binibinis just to make them 40 once again. For logistics, health and safety, the candidates who lasted up to now should stay as is – no more, no less.
I would be inclined to think that Samantha Bernardo is no longer in because of Miss Grand International, just as Rowee Lucero who defied the odds and traveled to Albania for The Miss Globe. I also heard unconfirmed talks that Alexangela Salvador may no longer be part of the batch due to personal reasons. But mathematically, there are more. And the uber prolonged stay as Binibinis could be why they may have opted to move on with life.
Let’s see who will finally be in and out soon.
