When my fellow blogger Joyce Ann Burton-Titular sat in the panel of Daragang Magayon 2015, she and the other judges were practically unanimous in picking Carmella Michelle Dolmer as the winner. She even went as far as saying that the young lass would be a perfect fit for Miss World Philippines 2015 as a possible successor for the reigning Valerie Weigmann. Now I’m not one to go against the thought because she has loads of potential, aside from having a good talent in dancing.
And since the handlers of Carmella are associated with Aces & Queens (the same team who prepped up Marvi Ann de Lima for Bb. Pilipinas 2015 ), the likelihood of being taken by the same camp is a given.
Now the question is, will she suit up better for MWP2015? Or are the prospects of taking part in Bb. Pilipinas 2016 looking more realistic?
Your thoughts, dear readers? 🙂
The Daragang Magayon 2015, which forms part of the Daragang Magayon Festival in Legazpi City, Albay, has always been a favorite regional beauty pageant of mine. For one, it has always been a rich source of beautiful Bicolanas who have the promising potentials of becoming candidates in national competitions like the Bb. Pilipinas, Miss Philippines Earth and Miss World Philippines. In the recently concluded Bb. Pilipinas 2015 alone, Binibinis Mae Liezel Ramos, Princess Joy Camu, Ina Dominica Guerrero and Marvi Ann de Lima are proud products of the said tilt. But the more popular ones include Bb. Pilipinas Supranational 2014 Yvethe Santiago and the late Bb. Pilipinas International 2009 Melody Gersbach.
And with the formal opening of this year’s festival on April 6 at the Albay Astrodome, here now are the twenty (20) Official Candidates for this year’s crown (Photos by Tyrone John). They are vying to become the successor of reigning winner Jacqueline Bernarte in the finals scheduled for April 28.
Below now are my early favorites to do well in the finals scheduled late next month.
My early choices from among the twenty are 1) Carmela Michelle Dolmer of Daet, Camarines Norte
