Of the four batches of Binibinis for Bb. Pilipinas 2020, the last one is where I had the least difficulty splitting the ten into the upper and lower halves. I don’t want to say that this is the weakest, but with the quality of the ladies presented in the 2nd and 3rd groups, there are only enough spots to fill the semifinal placements if tomorrow night would happen to be the finals.
Be that as it may, #Binibini36 Vickie Rushton is the runaway leader in this pack. And rightfully so. She has the maturity and experience to lay down on the table for BPCI to see and appreciate. True, #Binibini33 Alexandra Faith Garcia is another veteran to contend with. Reason why she is my second in this lineup. If both ladies will stand side-by-side, the former can easily upend the latter physically. Q&A-wise, though, they are practically even.
#Binibini32 Danica Acuña is promising. She has the spunk in personality and knows how to make herself shine with ease. Her beauty is also very engaging on top of a sweet presence. Just like #Binibini38 Lesley Ticaro but with a more adorably ‘provinciana’ authenticity to her character.
#Binibini37 Alexangela Salvador, on the other hand, is the aggressor when it comes to public speaking. This young entrepreneur – who is now building her own hostel in Siargao among other places – is not about to give way to the tongue-tied or shy fellow candidates. She knows how to step up like a true youngblood of a businesswoman.
So there, who are your choices in the fourth and last batch, dear readers?
Cherry blossoms in June!
Here are Binibinis 31-40 in their official swimwear photos for Bb. Pilipinas 2020.

A virtual Santacruzan it will be for Bb. Pilipinas 2020. Because of the pandemic crisis, the Binibinis will have to be dolled up off-site and presented as sagalas online. It takes some getting used to, but this is already a sneak peek into the new normal – the BPCI way.
Below are three more ladies to feast your eyes on.

After the release of the new sets of official photos and yesterday’s Ever Bilena Beauty Tour by the Bb. Pilipinas 2020 candidates, normannorman.com is sharing with you his 2nd Round Picks that should set up things nicely for the Press Presentation that will happen on March 17. Take note that I arranged the #Binibinis according to the order of my preference and not by numbers anymore:
Samantha Bernardo of Palawan
Karen Laurrie Mendoza of Iloilo
Gabrielle Basiano of Borongan, Eastern Samar
Hannah Arnold of Masbate
Patrizia Garcia of Manila
Honey Cartasano of Rizal
Alexandra Mae Rosales of Laguna
Cindy Obeñita of CDO, Misamis Oriental
Vickie Marie Rushton of Negros Occidental
Carina G. Cariño of La Union
Hazel Ortiz of Pasig
Pat Babista of Quezon Province
Francesca Taruc of Angeles City, Pampanga
Danica Joy Acuña of Romblon
Maureen Montagne of Batangas
Alexandra Faith Garcia of Olongapo
Jash Dimaculangan of Camarines Sur
Samantha Alexandra Panlilio of Cavite
Shanon Tampon of Caloocan
Kimberly Anne Tiquestiques of Balagtas, Bulacan
As of today, the competition is still wide open for all the ladies. The leaderboard, though, is starting to take shape more clearly, such that if the Grand Coronation Night will happen later, the potential titleholders are Samantha Bernardo, Karen Laurrie Mendoza, Gabrielle Basiano, Hannah Arnold and Patrizia Garcia, with Honey Cartasano and Alexandra Mae Rosales as runners-up.
But with the remaining pre-pageant counting more than a month and a half to go, anything can still happen. Samantha Bernardo is looking like my only surefire winner at this point.
After yesterday’s release of the Raymond Saldaña Official Photos for Bb. Pilipinas 2020, normannorman.com is posting its 1st Round of 20 Picks for the competition. In the order by which they are numbered now:
#Binibini1 Samantha Alexandra Panlilio
#Binibini4 Patrizia Garcia
#Binibini7 Shanon Tampon
#Binibini9 Patricia Denise Babista
#Binibini10 Shaira Rona
#Binibini11 Maureen Montagne
#Binibini13 Samantha Bernardo
#Binibini14 Hazel Ortiz
#Binibini15 Cindy Obeñita
#Binibini16 Alexandra Mae Rosales
#Binibini17 Justine Felizarta
#Binibini18 Karen Laurrie Mendoza
#Binibini21 Hannah Arnold
#Binibini23 Gabrielle Basiano
#Binibini25 Carina Cariño
#Binibini27 Jashmin Dimaculangan
#Binibini28 Francesca Taruc
#Binibini29 Honey Cartasano
#Binibini32 Danica Acuña
#Binibini36 Vickie Marie Rushton
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.
Above are the looks of some of your Binibinis in today’s official photo and video shoot for Bb. Pilipinas 2020.
