You can really tell that Bb. Pilipinas International 2017 Mariel de Leon is one beauty queen made of sterner stuff. She has a strong personality capable of overcoming difficulties and problems. And even the cookie cutter expectations from our national crown wearer. I remember prior appearances earlier this year before she transferred the crown to her successor Ahtisa Manalo when she would dress up in goth as compared to the more glammed stylings of her fellow titleholders.
And now this.
As the Muse 2018 of FHM Philippines, Mariel proves once more that she has a mind all her own. We all know how BPCI frowns at potential Binibinis having their photographs splashed on its glossy pages. She did the reverse by doing the shoot now that her contract with the organization is nearing completion.
Your thoughts, dear readers?
Bb. Pilipinas International 2017 Maria Angelica De Leon is looking forward to the month of July where something exciting awaits!
Watch out for our Queen Mariel soon!

Mariel’s date with destiny – just like the other Bb. Pilipinas 2017 Queens – is slowly approaching. We’re nearing the last month of this quarter. And by mid-October, she will be in a beehive of activities in final preparations for her trip to Japan where the finals of Miss International 2017 is set for (tentatively) November 14.
In the meantime, enjoy her latest images. Be ready for the ultimate transformation for her mission within the next two months.
Mariel with leading man Coco Martin
Look who’s going to be the next leading lady of actor Coco Martin in Star Cinema’s remake of “Ang Panday” for the 2017 Metro Manila Film Festival – it’s Bb. Pilipinas International 2017 Mariel de Leon!
This is going to be the first big movie break of our Bb. Pilipinas queen and in a love interest role to one of the country’s top film and TV actors at that. I am pretty sure Mariel is excited about the project. I just hope that the principal photography and post-production demands won’t interfere with her training and preparations for Miss International 2017.
Congratulations, Mariel! 🙂
Bb. Pilipinas International 2017 Mariel de Leon
The first thing I told Bb. Pilipinas International 2017 Mariel de Leon when I joined her table during yesterday’s lunch event at Union Jack Tavern was “do you know long and winding the discussions went when I blogged about you and that Mocha Uson incident?
” And she was like the least bit surprised. She wanted to read the entire transcript, but I cautioned her not to but do at your own risk if you will.
Mariel has her own true identity, and it is one that might have spawned from a combination of the relatively contrasting personalities of her celebrity parents. She can be very vocal, but she will never continuously offend like a raging bull. She knows her parameters clearly well, although there will always be some scattered and unguarded moments when she would express her mind like a free spirit. That is how I read this oft-bashed beauty. There is a certain method to understanding her ways (something she might have acquired from her popular fathet) but it is far from plain acting or internalizing a role. The quiescent quality could have been a trait straight out of her (still known and active in TV as a character actress) mother’s public and private persona. So what you really get is a tempered quality of being forthright.
Mariel just wants to let everything flow and not be affected by criticisms being thrown at her
I am loving it that whenever I see Mariel and Rachel (Peters
) together, there is a developing sisterly bond that makes them somewhat source their strengths from each other.
You either just like Mariel or love her. I bet that you will never dislike or hate her to the max because the minute you get to sit down with her and talk, the impression will be far from what you may have created in your mind based on what the news or social media has created for purposes of public perception. 🙂
Happy Birthday, Maria Angelica de Leon!
I have been looking for a good video of the May 20 episode of The Bottomline With Boy Abunda where our Bb. Pilipinas International 2017 particularly acquitted herself very well during the discussion with the popular TV host. But I guess I need to be more patient.
In the meantime, below is her TV guesting on TWBA.
