When Bb. Pilipinas Universe 2009 Pamela Bianca Manalo and Bb. Pilipinas World 2002 Katherine Manalo attended the Bb. Pilipinas 2016 Press Presentation, it wasn’t only to add more to the glitter of having former titleholders present. They were there for youngest sister Nichole Marie Manalo who is in her 2nd and final attempt to win a crown in the nationals.
You see, nothing would make the sisters more pageant-fulfilled than to eventually see Binibini 28 grab one of her own. And if a good crown is in the offing, then that would make it more celebratory for the Manalo clan. For starters, the Bb. Pilipinas International title is out of the question because of age. So which honor will Nichole be fitted with?
I am not saying that a crown is already in the bag for the third pageant-prepared Manalo sibling. But she has really prepared hard for this and my hunch is that she will gain more success in 2016 compared to the last.
Your thoughts, dear readers?
