“There is nothing more rare, nor more beautiful, than a woman being unapologetically herself; comfortable in her perfect imperfection. To me, that is the true essence of beauty.” – Steve Maraboli
Here are the #NoFilter photos of the 34 Binibinis of Binibining Pilipinas 2021. Catch them this coming June 18, 4pm on the pageant’s YouTube Channel.
During yesterday’s Press Conference and Swimsuit Preliminaries of Binibining Pilipinas 2021, Bb. Pilipinas Grand International 2019 Aya Abesamis wore the very same gown by Renee Magtibay Salud that her mom – Bb. Pilipinas Universe 1984 Desiree Verdadero Abesamis – wore during the Finals of Miss Universe 1984 en route to a 3rd Runner-Up placement.
The reigning Queens during yesterday’s event
Yesterday’s Swimsuit Preliminaries will be shown as part of the Finals on July 11. But tonight, the National Costume Competition will premiere on the pageant’s YouTube Channel at 7pm.
Beyond the beauty, the heels, the swimsuit, the gowns, the social personality and Q&A savvy, one component of pageantry that is just as crucial than – if not more crucial than – the rest is #attitude. It speaks volumes about how a pageant aspirant will eventually show her true colors as a potential titleholder.
I have heard of so many (horror) stories through the years. And pageant organizers have learned their lessons – the hard way most of the time.
So why am I posting about this?
Because within the next two months, we will have new sets of Queens in at least three of our biggest national beauty competitions.
Always remember this:
“Attitude is the way you look at life. It is the way you choose to see and respond to events, situations, people, and yourself. Your attitude is not something that happens to you. You choose your attitude. Your attitude is created by your thoughts, and you choose your thoughts.” – @focus3.com
Enjoy your individual journeys, ladies❣️
There are actually four (4) remaining Independents in Binibining Pilipinas 2021 – Gabrielle Basiano, Honey Cartasano, Lesley Anne Ticaro and Lois Badando.
Allow me to share the advocacy videos of two – one who is a favorite to win a crown and another one who can be considered a spoiler (and whose advocacy is my personal favorite among the 34).
Share me your thoughts about Gabby and Lesley.
In these videos, the all-female hosting tandem of Binibining Pilipinas 2021 – Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray and Miss Grand International 2016 1st Runner-Up Nicole Cordoves – talk about the upcoming Finals Night on July 11 and many more.
I am sharing with you now the advocacy videos of three of the perceived frontrunners in Binibining Pilipinas 2021.
I would appreciate your comments/impressions after.

These new photos of Binibini Gabrielle Basiano of Borongan, Eastern Samar are hard to ignore. Everything is coming up roses around her, what with an upcoming featured guesting on Rated Korina giving her good spotlight as the finals night of Binibining Pilipinas 2021 approaches.
I hope that there won’t be unanticipated obstacles in her way. I can strongly feel that she will be good for the Binibining Pilipinas brand as a titleholder.
