Make way for these wise queens as they shop ‘til they drop wearing BRAGAIS™️ Cristy & Darylle.
Then feel the power of our modern Filipina queens as they stood their ground confidently and independently with BRAGAIS™️ Gazini and Jehza.

Note: Binibini20 Thea Cenarosa was absent during the shoot due to a small accident at home that prevented her from reporting to the activity.
Just as I had thought, splitting the second batch of Bb. Pilipinas 2020 candidates right in the middle would prove to be hard – especially with the fifth and sixth because the former will automatically be part of the upper half.
At any rate, #Binibini13 Samantha Bernardo is my hands-down top pick for this group. She who has been runner-up long enough to prove her loyalty to BPCI, apart from being the crown-worthiest of the ten. This Palaweña is eyeing Supranational, not surprisingly. She has practically “ceded” the International crown to Vickie Rushton as early as the day she decided to sign up for the third time.
Now as far as the second and third here, I am giving the slight edge to #Binibini18 Karen Laurrie Mendoza of Iloilo because – outside of Vickie – she fits the template of Miss International nicely. She has almost the same bone structure and height as Bea Rose Santiago, not to mention observations that Madame SMA started to take a shine on her in all the activities before the quarantine period.
#Binibini11 Maureen is third in rank for me. She is the toughest opponent of Sam B. for Supranational. But in all honesty, I can see her being more appropriate for Grand International instead.
My fourth and fifth are potential spoilers. #Binibini16 Alexandra Mae Rosales and #Binibini19 Kimberly Anne Tiquestiques. Both tall and promising, their distinctly Pinay beauties can suit up well for a lesser title or runner-up placement if fate dictates the two of them to shine that far.
How about you, dear readers? Who belongs to your upper half among Binibinis 11-20?
P.S. My 6th in this group is #Binibini14 Hazel Ortiz.
Cherry blossoms in June!
Here are Binibinis 11-20 in their official swimwear photos for Bb. Pilipinas 2020.

In this entry are yesterday’s photos of your (almost 6 feet tall) #Binibini21 Ana Thea Cenarosa of Pototan, Iloilo who made a courtesy call with her Mayor Hon. Rafael Enrique Lazaro. After that, she visited the Korean Philippine Rice Milling Factory – a community development project of her hometown.
She also dropped by the two famous agri-tourism resorts that are located in Pototan – Mapols Farm and Happy Farm.
FYI, Pototan is a first class municipality in the province of Iloilo, considered the Rice Granary of Iloilo Province and the Christmas Capital of Western Visayas.
