THE BINIBINING PILIPINAS & ITS CROWNS | MISS GRAND INTERNATIONAL
This symbolizes how the light peeked through for the Philippines when Samantha Bernardo almost bagged our first golden crown last 2020 in the Miss Grand International pageant. Samantha has become a symbol of perseverance for women, and an inspiration for all after she joined the Binibining Pilipinas pageant thrice (2018-2020). She did not stop and continued to push herself to get her dream crown, until she joined the Miss Grand International pageant in 2020 and won 1st Runner Up.
Miss Grand International is a beauty pageant franchise based in Thailand, and is now one of the world’s leading international beauty pageants. MGI as a beauty pageant has been campaigning to STOP THE WAR and VIOLENCE. They are known to represent strength, grandness and magnificence in the world of beauty pageant. Miss Grand International believes that if countries in the entire world will merge as ONE through their Stop the War and Violence campaign, peace will ultimately be achieved.
The Miss Grand International Organization is yet to open its door to a Filipina.

BINIBINING PILIPINAS 2022
BB 40 | SAN PABLO, LAGUNA
See i was right, she did one for MIC crown recognizing our current queen. 🙂
Roberta is doing the Katrina Llegado publicity and pictorial. Katrina also pays homage to MU from the Philippines. This time Roberta is doing the top winners from the different crowns of BBP.
I think this is giving the pageant enthusiast a chance to see Roberta in different style and gauge what crown fits her the most.
If the intention is to get attention, then I think it is working. But based on the mixed reactions of her stunt, does she really want to get (some negative) reactions when there were none directed at her before?
Roberta is a beautiful girl. Me thinks she does not to need to be nothing but a second-rate, trying-hard, copy-paste (lol) to be noticed.
The Stella Araneta homage, sige I can understand. But to pay homage to a very, very recent SamBer (who, forgive me, did NOT win naman) is too much clout chasing.
I don’t know what Roberta’s handlers are trying to ejaculate (translation: di ko alam kung ano ang gusto nilang palabasin. Char!), but with a last name lang tamod-ong, they can ejaculate as much as they want. Lol.
I think the problem is that everyone is wayyyy overthinking it. To me, it shows her versa-tility to fit a pageant mold.
Probably inspired by Pia’s photoshoot to of various Filipina MUs in their winning ensembles.
Mga veks, I think Roberta is just paying homage to iconic beauty queen titlist of the crowns being handed out by BBPI. I have a feeling she will do one for Anne Colis and possibly MIC – not sure who the first MIC titleholder from the Phils is….Oh that Aussie girl lol… I still forgot her name. This is just my guess so we shall see.
She will win a crown . She did her homework and a known favorite where it matters
Honestly , I would rather have Roberta any crown but the Miss International crown … I do not want her to experience the long agonizing wait that Hannah endured …
She can be the next Miss Intercon (back to back ) or Miss Globe ( back to back ) !
I hesitate to send her to MGI because it is a questionable pageant, might be a waste of time for her
Mag-abang na lang tayo ng mga kaganapan teh. Hanggang dun lang tayo.
Huwag nang naghe-hesitate, hindi naman ikaw ang magde-decide.
May mga judgeseses, di ba teh?
She’s making so much experimentation on herself. She’s undeniably beautiful but she should stay focused in the coronation night. Can be outsmarted by the others when she becomes too complacent and nerves get into her system like what happened to 1 candidate some years ago who got distracted in Q&A round by a simple gesture (making a face) of a live audience in the venue.
Stop the War? What a joke
So she either wants International or Grand…
If she wins any of those pageants, it would still be the perfect drumroll if she becomes MUph 3-5 years from now.
While Roberta’s recent photos were a blast, I find this cookie cutter approach risky to her end. It made her too presumptuous. Chances are, International and Grand might not be handed down on her.
Anyways, here are my final picks:
BbP-International – Chelsea Fernandez
BbP-Globe – Roberta Tamondong
BbP-Intercontinental – Gabrielle Basiano
BbP-Grand International – Christine Opiaza
BbP-Araneta Center – Nicole Budol
1st Runner-up – Anna Lakrini
2nd Runner-up – Karen Laurie Mendoza
This girl can easily win Miss Grand !
Roberta is also eyeing the Grand International crown. I reckon she would be channeling her inner Maureen and Cindy for her photo releases in the coming days. We will see
i dont get why this site still allots space to a shitty MGI. di pa ba enough yung mga pambabastos sa mga former reps natin? ano pa need gawin ni Nuat for this page to acknowledge all the BS that owner spews on filipinas?
