John dela Vega will field in five girls for Bb. Pilipinas 2017
During the photoshoot of the ladies
You cannot put a good man down that easily, especially not if he is someone like John dela Vega. His beauty camp – JDV Girls – is in the thick of preparing five (5) beautiful ladies scheduled for filing of application with Bb. Pilipinas 2017. And trust the guy to come up with a relatively tall line-up as he has always been known to have in the past. Remember the likes of Merry Joy Respicio and Valiry Vispo who stand in the 5’10”-5’11” height range?
Anyways, more than a few pageant watchers may tend to belittle JDV’s efforts to come up with his own brand of beauty queens for the nationals. You really need to give him credit where it is due. This is true labor of love, an unending passion if you will. And with the common vision to give the Philippines world-class beauties for global pageantry, all camps deserve a salute.
Best of luck to all JDV Girls for Bb. Pilipinas 2017! 🙂

Joselle Mariano is gearing up for Bb. Pilipinas 2017
Joselle Mariano has been seen taking the pageant route from Mutya ng Pilipinas 2013 to Miss Philippines Earth 2014 to Miss Republic of the Philippines 2015. In the last of the three, she achieved her personal best performance so far by getting Miss Luzon (or 1st Runner-Up in rank
). This year, she is upping the stakes by gearing up for what could be her biggest challenge so far – Bb. Pilipinas 2017.
KF-trained Joselle knows the ins and outs of the beauty contest game by now. And she has prepared well for the nationals. Before the weekend, she would have already filed her application at the BPCI office and well on her way to the bloody screenings next week. I say bloody because the 54th edition is seen by many as the toughest so far with the number of interested ladies exceeding the past number of years.
Will she make it?
Good luck to you, Joselle! 🙂
Will she be one of the Binibinis for 2017?
The search for Miss Global Philippines 2017 is now on
Miss Global Philippines 2016 Camille Hirro
For a three year-old national beauty competition, Miss Global Philippines
has started to find its niche in the country’s pageant landscape by being the only one of its kind that encourages single mothers to take part, aside from extending the age qualification to 28. These two unique features effectively widened its reach to all the potential candidates, including the ones who may have “overlooked” their chances of joining the likes of Bb. Pilipinas, Miss Philippines Earth and Miss World Philippines. What’s more, the opportunity to represent the flag internationally is also an exciting part of the whole process with the annual Miss Global that has particularly allowed reigning titleholder Camille “CJ” Hirro to strengthen her personal platform after placing 1st Runner-Up in the last edition held right here in Manila.
Pauline Sofia Laping of PSL Entertainment Production – who is also the CEO and National Pageant Director of Miss Global Philippines – is ready to make the 2017 search bigger and brighter. She wants the pageant to make a more commanding stand that would further attract the participation of smart and cause-oriented Filipinas to sign up and vie for the title.
Check out the qualifications for Miss Global Philippines 2017 above. If you fit in (or you know a qualified contestant), then get ready for the first screening scheduled on March 18 at West Avenue Suites in Quezon City.
CJ Hirro continues to have a beautifully significant reign so far

She’s Fil-Aussie alright, but is a proud Bulakenya
Alright, let’s start with the basic stats on Helga Farmer Cerbo first. She is 23 years old, stands 5’9″ and measures 36-25-36. Her bloodline is a mix of Filipino/Australian but was born and raised in the province of Bulacan where she reigned as its Lakambini
for the year 2014. She graduated from Centro Escolar University with a degree in Business Administation, major in Financial Management.
This beauty just arrived from Japan where she worked for 6 months in – of all the places you would least expect to see her – farms and fish markets! The trip was a big learning adventure, she admits.
Helga is independent, for now. But if she does make it as one of the Binibinis for 2017, I bet it will only be a matter of short time before one of the beauty camps decide to “adopt” her on the spot.
Before the February 24 of Bb. Pilipinas 2017, Helga will be filing her application at the BPCI Office. And I wish her the best of luck because she has glowing potentials from my vantage point.
Your thoughts on Helga, dear readers? 😉

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? 🙂
