Aces & Queens will be fielding ten (10) highly-competitive ladies for Miss Universe Philippines 2020. Except for four of them, I have already blogged about the six others the past month and a half.
This is a mix of familiar names with relatively new faces in pageantry. Earlier today, they filed their applications at the Empire Studios. Hopefully, all ten will be annointed Official Candidates next month.
First off is Bb. Pilipinas Globe 2018 Michele of Quezon City – easily the most popular in the group aside from being a TV personality of ABS-CBN.
Next is Mutya ng Pilipinas Global Beauty Queen 2018 Pauline Amelinckx of Bohol who is in her second attempt in national pageantry.
Third on the list is Maria Isabela Galeria of Sorsogon who was a Binibini during last year’s edition of Bb. Pilipinas.
The first-ever Binibining Cebu Apriel Smith is also in the roster. She was a Bb. Pilipinas candidate back in 2016 and is making her big return to the big league.
We also have Paula Ortega of Ligao, Albay – the younger sister of Gabriela Madarieta Ortega who was a former Binibini and Miss World Philippines candidate.
And then there is Riana Pangindian of Pasig City who was part of Bb. Pilipinas 2016. She is now a highly polished version and is ready to go full blast in MUP2020.
Lou Dominique Piczon of Cebu comes next. The Binibining Cebu Heritage 2018 is going for her very first plunge into a national competition. And boy, is she raring to go!
Eighth is Mari Danica Reynes who joined Miss World Philippines 2018 and is a very talented singer. While there is no talent segment in MUP, she will make up for it in other areas.
Chiara Lyn Markwalder of Leyte was part of Miss Global Philippines previously. With Aces & Queens, she has bloomed better than ever before.
Completing the group is Kia Moreno of Camarines Sur, the CebuPac FA who was seen last in Miss Philippines Earth 2019. She has now moved to Aces & Queens for MUP.
Know more about them soon!
