Wanna see a return of Angelique de Leon to the Bb. Pilipinas stage?
At 26, Angelique Celine de Leon has only up to Bb. Pilipinas 2017 as her one final attempt to achieve the pageant glory that has escaped her grasp in 2014 and last year. And this lovely and articulate lady is being talked about as making the big move to a new camp – from RL to KF, I was told. Are you ready to see her third appearance at the Smart Araneta Coliseum this summer?
I’m game for Angelique de Leon 3.0. She has definitely leveled up from the first to the second. And this year could be her best ever.
Watch out, dear readers!
Ready to take a chance again, Jehza Huelar is.
You can say that Bb. Pilipinas 2016 2nd Runner-Up Jehza Huelar is ready to take a chance again. Some might quip, “Why so soon?”. And I answer back, “Why not this soon?”
You see, Jehza is really motivated to win a national crown. But being the family breadwinner that she is, there are also other plans in the pipeline once she finally decides to retire from pageantry. She is choosing between going corporate or working abroad in a few years’ time or perhaps, a bit sooner. So you can conclude that this Dabawenya is making the most out of all the trainings and exposures she has gotten with BPCI the past nine months. Hopefully, she can wrest a crown in this, her planned 2nd attempt.
Good luck, my dear Jehza!
When Jehza lost both of her parents due to cancer, she was already an Ambassador of Maharlika Sports Foundation in her college at the Ateneo de Davao university. It did not stop her from finish a degree in Finance while continuing her advocacy to the predisposed children. Right now, she is still continuing her platform to raise her project called “Isang bola ka lang
“. She aims to give millions of sports balls to students in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao, believing that through sports, it will strengthen a child’s mind and body. To stay positive in life.
So if you see someone who looks like Jehza screening for Bb. Pilipinas 2017, that person will be no other than her. 🙂
Joanna Eden by Igor Drozdowski for Miss Supranational 2016
During the closed door interviews
December 2 is the Day of Denouement for Bb. Pilipinas Supranational 2016 Joanna Eden, or the day when she will find out the final phase of her international pageant destiny. The finals will unfold in Krynica-Zdroj, Poland by which time the successor of Stephania Stegman will ve known.
Has our representative done enough to make us all proud? Or has she done just the right amount to capture a placement that will better the Top 20 placements of her two national predecessors? The feedbacks have been mixed if you check out the several online pageant sites. Personally, I can say that she registers so differently in pictures and snap videos that the organizers will definitely have appreciated her a lot more by now. Who knows? My wish for a 2nd Miss Supranational crown for the Philippines might actually come true.
During the closed door interviews, Joanna was very positive. She should be. Our Queen lets out quite an impressive assessment of her communication skills as she can articulate her thoughts very well, especially when in a serious mode of speech.
Let us be positive about Joanna. I know that she wants to really do good in this one. 🙂

Nicole for the National Children’s Congress of the DSWD
There is always something good to be said about beauty queens who use their titles to create a platform where their voices can be heard on a national level. Done with the job of representing the Philippines in Miss Grand International 2016 and bringing home the 1st Runner-Up trophy as proof of achievement, Bb. Pilipinas Grand International 2016 Nicole Cordoves is currently setting her sights on more important advocacies that affect the youth. And boy, is she really in her best elements doing these activities.
For the National Children’s Congress of the DSWD, she spoke to the young ones and shared the importance of being aware about the social issues affecting them and life in general. This is what she posted on social media about it.
“Hindi tayo ginawa ng Diyos para maging ordinaryo lamang, may ekstraordinaryong tadhana siya na isinulat para sa atin. | You weren’t created by God to become ordinary, you are all given an extraordinary purpose.
It was a priceless opportunity to be able to speak to these kids about life. When the floor was opened for questions, they asked a lot of social issues about our country today. They are aware, they are worried, and they need us to make sure that it really is going to be okay.

And Nicole doesn’t stop there. She also shared her time for the reading advocacy of Manila Bulletin called “Read for 20” (or simply put, make a habit of reading at least 20 minutes a day
). Here is her take on this.
Nicole for Manila Bulletin’s Read For 20
“Every time you finish reading a book, you see the world a little more differently. This is why I am sharing Manila Bulletin’s advocacy, READ FOR 20! I am encouraging everyone to keep a book in your bag, get off social media and read for AT LEAST 20 minutes a day. So drop your phones and grab a book!”
There is something really important about being Nicole Cordoves. She puts into good use the power and responsibility given to her as a national beauty titleholder. And knowing this lady, she won’t stop doing what she loves best. In fact, she’s just getting started!
I love you, Nicole! 😉
3rd Runner-Up is Nichole’s Official Placement
The photos is this blog post signify that Bb. Pilipinas Globe 2016 Nichole Manalo is the official 3rd Runner-Up of The Miss Globe 2016.
I know what your next question will be, dear readers. Why was the placement unannounced during the live finals that denied our Queen the special moment of being photographed alongside with the winners? Well, I wish I could give you a statement from the organizers. All I have are these images of Nichole with the 3rd Runner-Up crown. These were taken after the finals during a private moment during post-coronation when the organizers from Deliart Association made the informal crowning of two more runners-up. Miss South Africa was also named 4th Runner-Up. Click the link below for the video on FB.

Nichole is now on her way back to the Philippines. At least we know what her final ranking is now, and with a 3rd Runner-Up crown to prove the claim.
The Asian candidates of Miss Supranational 2016
Miss Supranational 2016 just uploaded videos of all the candidates divided into four continents – Africa, Americas, Asia (Oceania) and Europe. Watch all four clips below so you will get a clearer idea of the competition Bb. Pilipinas Supranational 2016 Joanna Eden (left photo
) is up against.
The judgment day is nearing – December 2 to be exact and these vids will help you decide on who to short-list or not. 🙂

There is a seven-hour difference between Manila, Philippines and Tirana, Albania. So if the finals of The Miss Globe 2016 will start at around 7pm-ish over there, then that would be around 2am of Saturday (November 26) here. Today is the date when we shall all find out who the successor of Ann Colis will be and if Bb. Pilipinas Globe 2016 Nichole Manalo has made strong enough strides to walk away with the crown that will bring her dreams of a back-to-back win to a most meaningful realization.
I know that our bet is one of the more highly-regarded candidates in this year’s batch. And even if one pageant follower will check the roster only for the first time, it would be hard to ignore the beauty and presence of Nichole in the competition. She stands out without a doubt. So if the Albanian organizers do not mind giving the 2016 crown to another Filipina, then I don’t see any reason for missing the victory (or coming very very close to it at worst).
From all of us here at normannorman.com, we wish you the back-to-back crown, Nichole Manalo!
