Two more familiar names and faces for Bb. Pilipinas 2020 – Patricia Denise Babista above and Justine Felizarta below.
Now recency-wise, you would remember Pat quickly because I blogged about her just earlier this month.
As for Justine, you should still recall as a former Binibini from the 2015 edition when she made Top 15, went to Canada to finish her studies and returned home for this.
They both filed today.
Binibini Watch List 2019:
There is a thought in Human Psychology that goes, “If you want to do something which is right, don’t wait for the right time. Start doing the right thing and make the time right.”
Alaiza has been part of the wish-lists and watch-lists of pageant followers almost every year after her first Bb. Pilipinas experience last 2015. She was 21 then.
Practically four years after – and at just the perfect age to rejoin – she has reached maturity. And a totally different mindset into the game. I hope.
Will she accept the challenge?

#BinibiniWishList2019: Alaiza Flor Malinao
They say that once is not enough.
And if one had to do it all over again, everything has to be planned right.
Back in 2015, Alaiza was #Binibini21 and hopeful of winning one of the titles. But perhaps, the timing just wasn’t right. She needed to develop herself even more, while undergoing a string of life experiences that would make her realize that pageantry is the world that will bring her greater glory. Modeling was good while it lasted. But as loyal supporters can agree, she is cut out to wear a national crown sooner or later.
Four years have passed since. And Alaiza is prepared more than ever to fulfill an unfinished business she started before. She is meant to be a Binibini for a second time. And she is bound to prove herself worthy of becoming a Bb. Pilipinas.
At 24, Alaiza Flor Malinao is ripe for a second attempt in the nationals. After her first Bb. Pilipinas foray last 2015, the gap of more than two years has seen her pursuing a place under the sun in the World of modeling. She has already given it her best shots. Do you think it’s time to get back to the pageant route and fulfill a previous dream to be crowned as a Queen?
In my opinion, Alaiza is ready for a return. After stints in Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 4 and Elite Model Asia-Pacific 2016 plus the experience of modeling in the US, the signs are egging her to make a Bb. Pilipinas comeback.
Will we see her signing up soon?

This is one of those bubble-bursting updates, unfortunately.
It only took my last blog post about Miss Globe 2015 Ann Colis to finally break her silence regarding Miss World Philippines 2017 and her talked-about joining. She personally called me up to explain matters very thoughtfully. We had quite an enlightening conversation. Afterwards, I asked her to come up with her official statement on the matter.
“I have considered and still continue to entertain the possibility of joining Miss World Philippines. But 2017 is definitely a no-go because of all my current plans to further pursue my modeling career in the US. Actually, I will be moving to New York City in a month or so to explore more career options out there. And at 24, I really need to do this – travel and get possible projects that would hopefully give me reasons to stay on as an international model. I will be in Toronto soon to judge Miss Globe Canada (and Miss Globe 2017 eventually), but that’s the farthest I plan to get involved in pageantry this year.
By 2018, that is the time when I will definitely sit down and make that one final decision to sign up for Miss World Philippines – a big move that will make all fans and supporters happy. Fingers crossed!
I know that my followers have already started building me up in social media as one of this year’s aspirants. But I sincerely hope that you will still be there with me next year once I focus on joining MWP. By then, it will be a “now-or-never” proposition, and your continuous rally behind my back is something to keep me up and running for another crown.”
If we are to go by interpretation of captions, then one of the latest uploads of Bb. Pilipinas Tourism turned Bb. Pilipinas Globe 2015 and Miss Globe 2015 Ann Colis is indicative of the next step she is very likely to take – “Eyes on the Prize 🌏”.
For the past week now, Ann has been dilly-dallying on finally answering my questions sent via private messages. And I gave her all the room to contemplate on the matter. If she was able to (very discretely) beat the July 22 deadline for Miss World Philippines, then I will definitely see her screening this weekend alongside the other hopefuls.
What’s your take on the possible crossover of Ann Colis, dear readers? Do the rewards far outweigh the risks? 🙂
As some of you may know by now, the Final Screening of Miss World Philippines 2017 will take place this coming Saturday, July 29. I am not at liberty to share the exact venue first since it will be a closed-door activity with restricted access.
Miss World Philippines Organization General Manager Bessie Besana has already given out clues to the bullet profiles of the ladies who managed to submit their application forms before the end of the day last July 22. And one of the more obvious references is former Binibini Teresita Ssen Marquez who is classified as “actress and niece of a Miss International”. Can it get any clearer than that description?
Anyways, we all know that Wyn-Wyn is definitely aspiring to become a certified beauty queen and Miss World Philippines could be the most appropriate venue for her to do so. Will she finally show up and screen for this one?
Your thoughts, dear readers?
