There are three interesting details about our next feature for the Bb. Pilipinas watch. First, she is a pageant newbie who has never joined any major beauty contest ever. Secondly, she is an independent applicant who is not affiliated with either A&Q or KF (or JDV for that matter). Thirdly, she is 26 years old and because of that, Bb. Pilipinas 2017 is her last chance to join in the nationals.
Maria Camille Manalo is from Silang, Cavite. She stands 5’9″ and is a Library & Information Science graduate of University of Santo Tomas. A martial arts athlete, she used to be a member of the Philippine National Team in Taekwondo and won a Gold Medal during the 26th SEA Games. Outside of this, she loves hiking , diving and surfing.
I see a lot of potential in Camille. And while this will be her one and only chance to take a chance in becoming a Binibini, I have a feeling the screening committee will show particular interest in her. She has a unique brand of charm once you see her face-to-face.
Good luck, Miss Manalo! 🙂
