It just dawned on me that the camp of Kagandahang Flores accounts for more than a third of the 50 Bb. Pilipinas 2013 Official Candidates. From their originally-trained bets like Charmaine Elima, Hannah Ruth Sison, Bea Santiago and the like, the group has swelled to eighteen (18) after the ‘adoption’ of additional beauties like Aiyana Mickiewicz, Anna Carmina Antonio, Gabrielle Runnstrom, Paula Bernasor and Rhea Nakpil. If sheer quantity doesn’t net Rodgil Flores at least two spots in the Top 5 come April 14, then I don’t know what will. (Quality! Silly me!)
It’s really a pity that only three official crowns (with 1st Runner-Up being just a nominal placement for our Miss Supranational rep) are being dangled for the ladies to fight for. Be that as it may, which of the ladies above do you think will bring the camp honor next month? 😉
This is just the beginning for the 50 Official Candidates of Bb. Pilipinas 2013. OPMB Worldwide chanced upon some of them upon arrival at Gateway in preparation for their first official photoshoot for the pageant. Their energies are brimming with excitement. I hope they can keep it up till the homestretch because it won’t be an easy trek to the finals. With all the scheduled activities and personal appearances, the last thing in their minds should be getting a good 8-hour sleep. 😉
