So who’s still in and who’s already out of the race? The new photos of the Binibinis will tell you the ones who are still in the thick of the fight. And with new assigned numbers at that.
Only thirty four (34) are left. The six who have already bowed out of the competition for different reasons are:
Rowena Sasuluya (or Rowee Lucero if you will)
Samantha Bernardo (for obvious reasons)
Hazel Ortiz (that new McDo TVC must be why)
Ana Thea Cenarosa (personal reasons)
Alexangela Salvador (personal reasons)
Vickie Rushton (personal reasons)
This information does not exactly come from the grapevine of rumors, but more of reality biting in.
Last Sunday, I was on the phone with a media colleague who accidentally mentioned that there should be no more last-minute additions to the remaining 35 Binibinis just to make them 40 once again. For logistics, health and safety, the candidates who lasted up to now should stay as is – no more, no less.
I would be inclined to think that Samantha Bernardo is no longer in because of Miss Grand International, just as Rowee Lucero who defied the odds and traveled to Albania for The Miss Globe. I also heard unconfirmed talks that Alexangela Salvador may no longer be part of the batch due to personal reasons. But mathematically, there are more. And the uber prolonged stay as Binibinis could be why they may have opted to move on with life.
Let’s see who will finally be in and out soon.
Below are the #IAMBINIBINI introduction videos of the second half of the Bb. Pilipinas 2020 candidates. You will notice that there is still one missing (or skipped) Binibini. I am simply relying on what the organizers are uploading in their YouTube channel. Hence, the efforts of 39 Bellatrix Tan is still not here.

Of the four batches of Binibinis for Bb. Pilipinas 2020, the last one is where I had the least difficulty splitting the ten into the upper and lower halves. I don’t want to say that this is the weakest, but with the quality of the ladies presented in the 2nd and 3rd groups, there are only enough spots to fill the semifinal placements if tomorrow night would happen to be the finals.
Be that as it may, #Binibini36 Vickie Rushton is the runaway leader in this pack. And rightfully so. She has the maturity and experience to lay down on the table for BPCI to see and appreciate. True, #Binibini33 Alexandra Faith Garcia is another veteran to contend with. Reason why she is my second in this lineup. If both ladies will stand side-by-side, the former can easily upend the latter physically. Q&A-wise, though, they are practically even.
#Binibini32 Danica Acuña is promising. She has the spunk in personality and knows how to make herself shine with ease. Her beauty is also very engaging on top of a sweet presence. Just like #Binibini38 Lesley Ticaro but with a more adorably ‘provinciana’ authenticity to her character.
#Binibini37 Alexangela Salvador, on the other hand, is the aggressor when it comes to public speaking. This young entrepreneur – who is now building her own hostel in Siargao among other places – is not about to give way to the tongue-tied or shy fellow candidates. She knows how to step up like a true youngblood of a businesswoman.
So there, who are your choices in the fourth and last batch, dear readers?
Cherry blossoms in June!
