Classes 2014 to 2016 in banner mode each
Sign-ups for Class 2017 are now open!
Now this one will pump up the interest of many potential beauties who have been constantly sending messages to my inbox as to when the next batch of Aces & Queens trainees for Class 2017 will finally start recruitment.
Here it is!
The successful beauty camp is now opening its doors for screening of ladies who will comprise their entries for Bb. Pilipinas 2017 (primarily), and methinks the number of interested applicants will be bigger than last year when they counted around two hundred (200).
Of course you know by now that Charmaine Elima will be part of the next annointed group. But with six (6) titles at stake in the nationals, the game is still wide open for more discoveries and re-discoveries.

So what are you waiting for?
Shaina Sazon is the latest addition to the Aces & Queens entries in MWP2016. Maine Elima was present to observe the Q&A session
Shaina is the Pride of Aurora Province
First there was five – Catriona Gray, Vinie Camille Dy Quiangco, Sandra Lemonon, Ralph Lauren Asuncion and Arienne Calingo. And then they became six with the addition of Alyanna Cagandahan. Now, the number has increased to seven (7) for Miss World Philippines 2016.
Shaina Lalaine Sazon of Aurora Province is the new addition to the Aces & Queens fold. The young lass will definitely learn a lot from the beauty camp. She attended the last Q&A session which also effectively served as her bonding time with the other ladies (including Maine Elima even who is Bb. Pilipinas-bound)
Good luck, Shaina! I will check your improvements soon!😉

The 25 Contenders
I’m not used to not seeing Kagandahang Flores (KF) of Rodgil Flores fielding entries to a national beauty competition. They have always brought in their bets in Bb. Pilipinas, Miss Philippines Earth and Mutya ng Pilipinas. And for reasons that they would rather not publicly state (and I would no longer ask), the camp skipped this year’s Miss World Philippines. Of course, a lot of you can take a stab at guessing why and your thoughts would most likely be hitting the right spot. But let’s just respect their decision.
So at this juncture, we have six from Aces & Queens, three from JDV and all the remaining sixteen coming from Independent handlers and talent scouts (Viva Artist Agency reps included).
So for all that it’s worth, is this really an eventual hunt for Four Princesses because the Queen’s throne is already in the bag? I have already presented all of the ladies in two previous posts.
Who are your Four Princesses now?🙂

Vinie Camille Dy Quiangco for Miss World Philippines 2016
Vinie Camille Dy Quiangco has been a friend on Facebook for almost two years now, but it’s only of late that I saw her soaring more actively in the national pageant scene with her participation as one of the five entries of Aces & Queens in Miss World Philippines 2016. I know that, aside from doing research work, she has also gone into missionary activities in the deep south before finally setting her sights on gunning for a beauty pageant crown.
Here now is the brief bio on this Capiz native who will soon launch her advocacy at Eastwood.
VINIE CAMILLE DY QUIANGCO
23, Sapian, Province of Capiz 🇵🇭
for Miss World Philippines 2016
Trained in international studies, Vinie worked as an administrative assistant and a researcher at the Asian Institute of Management in 2013. She was then involved in studies pertaining to tourism within the context of regional integration and cultural heritage.
After her research stint, she then volunteered as a missionary based in Mindanao for nearly two years wherein she taught young children on how to read and write—the focus of her advocacy.
To further her literacy advocacy, she is set to take her Masters in Development Communication at the University of the Philippines Open University this coming school term. 🌏

The five ladies of Aces & Queens for MWP2016 – left to right: Vinie, Catriona, Arienne, Ralph Lauren and Sandra
During yesterday’s general screening of Miss World Philippines 2016 at the B Hotel in Scout Rallis, QC, five (5) ladies easily stood out among the rest. They are the ones who have been groomed by Aces & Queens for the pageant. And early pageant forecasts are saying that the title is virtually set in stone for one of them.
Catriona Gray, Sandra Lemonon, Arienne Louise Calingo, Vinie Dy Quiangco and Ralph Lauren Asuncion are raring to go full blast in their hunt for the crown. It could be for the experience or the earnest effort of four of them to try and snatch the crown from the heavy favorite Catriona.
Could these five be the eventual Top 5 national finishers in 2016? Or will KF and the other camps (including independent ones) steal the thunder from one or two of them.
Watch out for the final screening scheduled this coming August 23 where the final slate of Official Candidates will be known.🙂

There has been a significantly rising interest in Aces & Queens
especially after the beauty camp was able to produce winners for four out of six Bb. Pilipinas 2016 titleholders (Maxine, Kylie, Jennifer and Nicole
) plus the two runners-up (Angelica and Jehza
). And the messages, emails and inquiries (from prospective joiners and handlers
) just keep on pouring in (flooding in, if you will
So in its FB page, an announcement was made to give everyone guidance as to how they recruit and build up their pool for the nationals. Here goes:
Thank you for your continued support to Aces & Queens. We really appreciate it.
For those who have been sending us private messages, we apologize if we have not replied to all of them but let us assure you that we are trying our best to answer all your messages.
For those who are asking on how to be part of the training pool of ACES and Queens, here’s the process:
We send out an announcement through this page and other social media platforms inviting those who are interested to submit their application online. We usually do this around September to October. Then we gather all pre-screened online applicants in a one-day final screening in Manila to pick ladies to be included in our training pool.
Please visit the A&Q page again for our announcement on the screening dates. Thank you! 🇵🇭
