It doesn’t happen all the time that three of our biggest national pageants run alongside each other simultaneously. And the month of April will have their much-awaited Press Presentations happening in close intervals.
First, Miss Philippines Earth 2023 will have its turn on April 3 (Monday) at the Lime Hotel and Resort in Pasay City.
Next up will be Miss Universe Philippines 2023 that will formally introduce the candidates to the public via their own Press Presentation after Holy Week – or on April 11 if plans don’t change at the last minute.
Finally, Binibining Pilipinas 2023 comes in third with theirs on April 28. This event usually takes place at the Novotel Manila Araneta City. And I don’t see the venue changing for this edition.
It will be an uber busy month for pageant lovers and pageant media like us!
Here are photos of the @bbpilipinasofficial 2023 candidates during today’s visit to Liliw, Laguna where this year’s official shoe provider, @aishefashion, is based.

The Binibinis went South today to visit this year’s official shoe provider, @aishefashion at Liliw, Laguna. They got a chance to see up close how the shoes are made 👡✨
We would like to thank the Municipality of Liliw and Aishe Fashion for their warmest welcome and hospitality. The Binibinis will proudly walk towards the crowns with these homegrown Filipino creations 🇵🇭

This is the inspiring story of Loraine Jara, your #Binibini39 from the Province of Bulacan.
From her own words:
“My father was one of my inspirations in joining the national pageant because he was a Ginoong Pilipinas 1994 candidate. I also want to inspire people by sharing my story. I am not the typical “perfect” beauty queen you can imagine. I wasn’t able to finish my formal education – a usual basic which people expect beauty queens to show diplomas/honors from.”
At the age of 21, Loraine became an OFW and bread winner to help the family finance their needs. Suddenly during the pandemic, her mom and dad both passed away with only a one-month interval. She was left with 2 siblings to look after. It is a difficult situation but she was able to cope eventually. She became more empowered and resilient.
“Currently, I am a model and a successful business woman – a proud franchise owner of a famous convenience store chain (7-11). I decided to be my own boss because when I was at my lowest, I remember a lot of companies rejecting me for work because of an unfinished educational attainment (2nd year college undergrad FEU Makati BSBA Marketing). But you know what? I used these rejections to push harder in life. Through my business, I was able to provide for my siblings and be a blessing not just for my family but to other people as well by creating jobs that do not discriminate and give chances to those who are hard working and determined.”
She also advocates for the creation and establishment of a support system for cancer warriors and their family members. This advocacy is very close to her heart. She is now in partnership with Kythe Foundation that supports cancer-stricken kids aged 2 and above. And she is hoping to raise this to the bigger stage.
“All told, I am part of Binibining Pilipinas 2023 to inspire people to keep going in life, persevere and prove to everyone that we are capable of overcoming any and all of life’s struggles and challenges.”
Are you all excited for the National Costume photos of Binibining Pilipinas 2023? They should come out soon. But in the meantime, here are the latest shots of your #Binibini29 Trisha Martinez of Laguna to feast your eyes on.

The candidates of Binibining Pilipinas 2023 participated in a bloodletting activity organized by the Philippine Red Cross – Quezon City Chapter at the Farmers Plaza Bazaar in Araneta City on February 18.
All candidates took part in the said activity, which aims to help replenish the supply in the country’s blood bank. According to Janice Melody Alfonso, RN, PRC Quezon City Chapter Administrator, the cancellation of blood donations due to the pandemic has caused blood supply to reach “insufficient and critical level”.
Binibinis who passed the blood screening were allowed to donate blood, while the rest were oriented by Red Cross personnel on the importance of donating blood.
For 2023, the Binibining Pilipinas Charities Inc. partners with more charitable organizations and institutions to engage candidates in different advocacy work.

Binibining Pilipinas 2023 applicant: #SharmaineMagdasoc of Pasig City
According to Confucius, “everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it”. In the case of this lovely Pasigueña, though, you can definitely feast on her undeniable allure.
27 year-old Shane stands 5’6” and is a graduate of Asian College with a degree in Information Technology. She is an artist, entrepreneur and I.T. Specialist. Her forays into pageantry resulted in winning beauty titles such as Ms Global Philippines 2017, Ms Turismo Filipina 2018 and – more recently – Ms Fashion World International, a competition she won in Malaysia.
Good luck in the Binibini screenings next week!
