The first time I watched the full introductory video of Reina Hispanoamericana Filipinas 2018 Alyssa Muhlach Alvarez for Reina Hispanoamericana 2018 during the sendoff, I started getting goosebumps all over my arms.
Time for you to watch the clip (filmed inside Patio Victoria Intramuros) now to appreciate our bet even more!
Earlier in the day, Reina Hispanoamericana Filipinas 2018 Alyssa Muhlach Alvarez departed for Sta. Cruz, Bolivia to join the other candidates of Reina Hispanoamericana 2018. She boarded a PAL flight that is now bringing her to New York City before connecting to her second segment that will land her in the South American city.

When I found out that Reina Hispanoamericana 2017 Teresita Ssen Marquez was going to be one of the judges during last night’s Binibining Cebu 2018 Finals at the Waterfront Hotel Cebu City, I immediately pulled her aside to give a message to Reina Hispanoamericana Filipinas 2018 Alyssa Muhlach Alvarez. You see, she missed the sendoff the other day due to a shooting schedule for her new film.

Crowned winners all
Last night at the Pacific Ballroom of Waterfront Hotel Cebu City, Steffi Pearson Aberasturi of Mandaue City proved the mightiest over 52 other candidates after she was crowned Binibining Cebu 2018. And she stayed true to her top favorite status from start to finish. She was crowned by last year’s Apriel Smith.
No runners-up were names and instead, four more titles were handed out to Binibining Cebu Tourism 2018 Kim Covert, Binibining Cebu Charity 2018 Tract Maureen Perez, Binibining Cebu Heritage 2018 Lou Dominique Piczon and Binibining Cebu Ecology 2018 Isabela Deutsch.

The panel of judges include Chairman of the Board Arnold Vegafria, Reina Hispanoamericana 2017 Teresita Ssen Marquez, MAPI’s Jacqueline Tan-Sainz and Miss Asia Pacific International 2018 1st Runner-Up Gabriela Palma among others.
The outgoing winners – Apriel Smith, Samantha Lo, Maria Gigante, Ingrid Gerodias and Kathleen Lendio were at their most regal during their farewell walk where they wore creations by Cary Santiago.

Congratulations to all the winners!
This entry is actually a late upload of the (still unpublished) interview video with Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental 2018 Karen Gallman when she came early for the media launch of the 47th Miss Intercontinental at Conrad Manila. We (two of my media colleagues and I) immediately asked her a series of questions about her preparations for the January, 2019 competition in our shores and how she will “personify” herself as the “Miss Philippines” of that batch.
During yesterday afternoon’s Official Sendoff for Reina Hispanoamericana Filipinas 2018 Alyssa Muhlach Alvarez – and when everyone was milling around her – I grabbed the chance to corner Miss World Philippines 2018 Katarina Rodriguez and started an instant one-on-one where we discussed her new look, her thoughts about that fateful night when she won the right to represent our country in Miss World 2018 and how her preparations for Sanya are progressing along.
