The TV telecast of the Bb. Pilipinas 2017 Coronation Night over ABS-CBN just got a little boost with the pre-empting of GGV (Gandang Gabi Vice) to give way to an on-the-dot 10pm start of the slightly delayed proceedings from the Araneta Coliseum. This means that it will follow “I Can Do That” immediately. During the meeting with the PR Department of Araneta Center, Inc. and BPCI yesterday afternoon, we were told that the last few segments of the competition will be in sync with what is happening inside the Big Dome in real-time. This should be better than last year when only the actual announcement of winners was in simultaneous live feed.
As I have previously mentioned, your blogger – as a media outlet – is not allowed to post regular updates of the competition here or on my Facebook timeline. Let us wait for everything to unfold because we were also sounded off on a planned twist in the format. I still have no idea what it is (could be about the cut/s or process of elimination/s) so let’s keep the element of surprise going and not spoil the excitement!
The Binibinis during the Ice N Cream Opening at Novotel Manila Araneta Center
Tonight on ABS-CBN right after GGV (Gandang Gabi Vice), don’t forget to catch the ABS-CBN Primer of Bb. Pilipinas 2017: The Road to the Crown. It will feature all the forty (40) Binibinis during the journey that will culminate in the Coronation Night on April 30. Part of the program will show their out-of-town workshop in Subic as well as some delightful segments on Q&A. It will also include introductory clips about each of them. Below is the teaser.

The 40 Binibinis of Bb. Pilipinas 2017 trooped to Antipolo, Rizal for the shoot of the OBB for the Primer that will be aired by ABS-CBN a week before the finals. The setting was at the Jardin de Miramar Events Place where the ladies were shot at their loveliest.
Check out the photo grids below. If you want to see their stand-alone shots, visit the Bb. Pilipinas FB Page.
The Binibinis plunged into a team building trip in Subic
A day after Press Presentation, the 39 Binibinis of Bb. Pilipinas 2017 boarded the bus to Subic for a team-building trip that aims to strengthen the bond among them and bring the ties of sisterhood to significant levels. Apart from that, this short vacation is also meant to give ABS-CBN the chance to film each one of them for the Pageant Primer that will be shown on Channel 2 a week before the finals.
But outside the sessions in group dynamics and waiting periods to talk in front of the camera, the ladies were also treated to a visit to Ocean Adventure where they attended the Wild World Show that allowed the braver ones among them to actually pet and get close to exotic animals as can be seen in the photos below.
By the time they return to Manila, your Binibinis will be closer and tighter. This should help build a batch that will have each other’s back all throughout the remaining weeks of competition.

We all know by now that the Coronation Night has already been penciled for April 30 at the Araneta Coliseum. Tickets should be available soon.
In the meantime, below is a video slideshow of the Press Presentation that formalizes the date of the finals.

October 22, 2016
This coming Saturday, October 22, at the Makati Shangri-la Ballroom, the Tenth Annual Star Magic Ball will take place where the big stars of ABS-CBN will take the spotlight as one solid Kapamilya family, dressed to the nines and ready to enjoy the night away. This is an annual event that a lot of fashiom designers, stylists and HMUAs are looking forward to. And my favorite shoemaker – Jojo Bragais – is one of them. He has hand-crafted a number of heels to be worn by some of the female stars. The question is, who among them?
Here are photos of the Bragais™ creations that should hopefully get photographed with their wearers this weekend. 🙂
Wouldn’t some of you Bragais™ wearers love to have a personal pair or two of the heels above?
Jennifer, Kylie and Nicole guested on TWBA last night
Since three of our Bb. Pilipinas 2016 Queens will compete abroad in the same month of October, they were also guested by the popular TV Host in his nightly show “Tonight with Boy Abunda”.
Bb. Pilipinas International 2016 Kylie Verzosa, Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental 2016 Jennifer Hammond and Bb. Pilipinas Grand International 2016 Nicole Cordoves were subjected to the program’s brand of Q&A. And while the whole episode was short, you will really get an idea as to how more vibrant and prepared these ladies have become.
Watch the videos after the images below and tell me what you think.
