She may not be the tallest among the 40 Binibinis of Bb. Pilipinas 2020. But as they say, some big things come in smaller packages. And what she may lack in terms of a statuesque frame is more than made up by her impressive communication skills. Oh and yes, the Panlilio pedigree as well.
Check out #Binibini1 Samantha Alexandra Panlilio in her interview and Q&A for the competition:

Coming up with this list of 20 is already tough as it is. I had to sacrifice a few of the Binibinis because I initially had 23 (with the inclusion of Vianca Marcelo, Kimberly Anne Tiquestiques and Lesley Anne Ticaro). With 40 contenders, cutting them in half at this point is more ideal. I am confident, though, that the five (5) new titleholders will be among the ladies named above.
Here are 38 of the 40 Binibinis of Bb. Pilipinas 2020 proudly displaying their respective artworks for today’s activity.

For this blog entry, let us give the spotlight to your #Binibini7 Shanon Jumaylh S. Tampon of Caloocan – the lady with the most interesting surname that is consistent with her lively/energetic personality.
Shanon could not give the most definitive origins of the Tampons in the Philippines, except for a good cluster of her ancestors living in the northern part of Cebu (Bantayan/Madridejos). Other than that, she is clear about everything else – her pageant plans in particular. Having joined Miss Philippines Earth 2019 and Mutya ng Pilipinas 2018 while finishing in the Top 10 of #Promedia’s Miss Bikini Philippines before Bb. Pilipinas 2020, she feels that past experiences have prepared her for the more rigorous demands of the competition she is presently a part of. She is braver and more confident. And even if she admits to the need of leveling up her communication skills even more, she pours her time and effort to diligently training in the aspect of Q&A and the like.
Advocacy-wise, Shanon chose to delve on the fight against animal cruelty – a cause closest to her heart. At its core, she has been taking care of and looking after stray dogs and cats on top of the ones living inside their house compound. Reason why she is excited about the regular affiliation of BPCI with PAWS (Philippine Animal Welfare Society) and the help it extends to the group.
This beauty is aware that competing against 39 other Binibinis can be daunting for a first-timer. In her own small way, she helps guide her newbie sisters on how to tackle the ins and outs of the national beauty pageant game. As for her 22 year-old self, she is determined to make a good impression up to the Grand Coronation Night. She is passionate about winning a crown that would give her the right to represent the country internationally. And she won’t stop until this mission is accomplished.
Below is your blogger’s exclusive interview with Shanon conducted yesterday.
