Is Daisha Jimenez ready for the rigors of Bb. Pilipinas?
Now this one is a veritable wish list beauty on my part, so it’s a feature that is intended more to tease than to confirm anything. The gorgeous Daisha Jimenez – who is only 19 years old – could be a shoo-in to win a national pageant title given her looks, communication skills and overall impact as a potential Bb. Pilipinas candidate. But is she ready for the big league as early as now? Methinks that – given more exposure and experience – she could really turn into a winner. At 5’9″, she actually can still grow at least an inch or more. And with that, the chances of evolving into a more serious contender will follow.
How about you, dear readers? Are you familiar with Daisha? Share your thoughts. 🙂
PS. Daisha is part of Kagandahang Flores (KF), regardless of the brand of national pageant you will see her being fielded in this year.
Ready-or-not? Or Ready-when-truly-ready?
Will this half Filipino, half Pakistani try her luck in Bb Pilipinas 2017?

Back to fresh faces once more, might I interest you to take a closer look at this half Filipino, half Pakistani beauty who is aged 20 and stands 5’9″? Her name is Mehwish de Castro and was Miss Oriental Mindoro 2015.
Mehwish finished cum laude with a BS Education (major in Science degree) and got her first pageant taste in the big city when she took part in Miss Manila 2016 where she finished in the Top 15. She is a public speaker in personality development and academic topics related to Science & Technology. But not to be labeled as an out-and-out seriously scholastic lass, she is also a trained belly dancer.
Will we get to see Mehwish trying out in the screening of Bb. Pilipinas 2017?

Carla’s 2nd time with Bb. Pilipinas should bear more fruits
Jennyline Carla Malpaya is classified as a 2.0(B) because – prior to becoming Binibini 32 of last year’s edition – she was already an Official Candidate of Miss World Philippines back in 2013 during (Miss World) Megan Young’s time. This former ward of Designer Jonti Martinez (she has now effectively and amicably crossed over to Aces & Queens) is making sure that her second time with our favorite national pageant will leave a more desirable result. I have actually seen her current styling, and there are marked improvements in the way she will be presented to the screening committee come February 27.
I am hoping that Carla will do much better this year because she really does her homework and dutifully internalized all camp trainings she underwent.
Will this be her year of triumph as a Binibini, dear readers? 🙂

Wanna see a return of Angelique de Leon to the Bb. Pilipinas stage?
At 26, Angelique Celine de Leon has only up to Bb. Pilipinas 2017 as her one final attempt to achieve the pageant glory that has escaped her grasp in 2014 and last year. And this lovely and articulate lady is being talked about as making the big move to a new camp – from RL to KF, I was told. Are you ready to see her third appearance at the Smart Araneta Coliseum this summer?
I’m game for Angelique de Leon 3.0. She has definitely leveled up from the first to the second. And this year could be her best ever.
Watch out, dear readers!
Liza Soberano is now a Maybelline Beauty Advisor
The beautiful young lady everybody wants to join Bb. Pilipinas and become a Beauty Queen is now the latest endorser and beauty advisor of worldwide cosmetic brand Maybelline.
In the #MakeItHappenEventWithLiza yesterday, the popular ABS-CBN actress gamely played the role of Beauty Advisor to unsuspecting customers checking out the Maybelline counter before she was introduced as its newest image presenter.
Her advice on being confident? “First, to be empowered means to feel confident and comfortable with who you are. And how to do that? Acknowledge your flaws and improve from there. Some little help from a good set of people around you would help heaps, and of course, a dash of make-up wouldn’t hurt!”
Liza is specifically promoting her favorite Maybelline product – the Clearsmooth All in one Powder Foundation – which can help achieve the naturally beautiful look and get shine-free flawless coverage for the Filipina skin. It’s 2x lightweight, dermatologically tested and available in 4 shades. It only costs P149.00. Very reasonable!

So be confident just like Liza with Maybelline’s Clearsmooth All in One Powder Foundation now. 🙂
Neither sisters nor cousins, Apriel and Marah represent the best of Cebu and Davao for Model Supremacy 2017
First off, this blog post is not part of my Bb. Pilipinas 2017 Watch. Some may quickly conclude that these beautiful ladies will file their application forms for the nationals, especially the appearance of Apriel Smith who was a Top 15 finisher during Bb. Pilipinas 2016.
Apriel Smith and Marah Smith represent the best of Cebu and Davao – respectively – in the upcoming Model Supremacy 2017 for Mossimo Bikini Summit Philippines. They are not related at all. It just so happens that they share the same surname. And in terms of modeling style and potentials, they have entirely different personal pegs as well. While the former possesses a sophisticated exotic quality, the latter exudes a raw soulfulness that you can definitely see and appreciate once the competition to find the most supreme models of 2017 goes full blast starting March till May.

Apriel and Marah are just two of the many promising personalities on the runway, in shoots and videos in motion who will make Model Supremacy 2017 the biggest and the hottest search to come out of the popular Mossimo Bikini Summit PH league.
Watch out for more about Model Supremacy 2017 soon!
Rossette Joyce Tayam from Olongapo
Rossette Joyce Tayam is a relatively familiar face in national beauty competitions. She was part of two separate pageants – one during Mutya ng Pilipinas 2015 where she represented Olongapo and the second one last year when she joined Miss World Philippines.
This year, Rossette Joyce will be doing the biggest cross-over when she screens for Bb. Pilipinas 2017 by the last week of February. It took her quite some time to reach the decision of doing the move to file her application at the BPCI office, and is hopeful that she will make the cut to become an official Binibini soon.
Will she be one of the chosen ones? Let’s find out once the names are called out on the 27th. 🙂
