The popularity of your #Binibini12 Gazini Ganados of #TalisayCebu has zoomed up the past few weeks that she is now considered a force to reckon with in Bb. Pilipinas 2019.
Can she sustain the drive and measure up to the expectations of many?
THAT is where the challenge lies!

The Press Presentation was a telling experience (and exposure) for the Bb. Pilipinas 2019 Official Candidates. The strong bets have started to surface, inspite of fans and followers saying that the titles this year are fair game for majority – if not all forty of them.
More than the hype, popularity, familiarity and cheers, here is how I size them up at this juncture.
If the Finals took place last night, these are the #Binibinis who will have taken the Top 8 spots (6 titleholders, 2 runners-up). As to who among them will get the #GoodCrowns, everything is still up in the air as far as I’m concerned.
Just like the last time, I arranged them according to assigned numbers instead of ranking #1 to #8:
#Binibini12 Gazini Ganados
#Binibini13 Andrea Abesamis
#Binibini14 Leren Mae Bautista
#Binibini17 Bea Patricia Magtanong
#Binibini18 Hannah Arnold
#Binibini26 Emma Tiglao
#Binibini27 Samantha Bernardo
#Binibini38 Vickie Rushton
This is the more interesting group.
If the Finals took place last night, these are the next eight (8) candidates who would have given the front-runners a run for their money. They are the ones keeping a close eye on who will make that one wrong move which will give them a pass to top placement. According to their numbers now:
#Binibini10 Marianne Marquez
#Binibini11 Sherry Anne Tormes
#Binibini15 Maria Isabela Galeria
#Binibini16 Denise Omorog
#Binibini19 Ilene de Vera
#Binibini20 Julia Saubier
#Binibini22 April May Short
#Binibini33 Jessarie Dumaguing
As you can see, shuffling has already taken place where some of the previously-unlisted ladies have started to enter the potential circle of winners. That is the beauty of observing and analyzing them after a string of pre-pageant activities.
The next classification should be posted by mid-May before my Final Predictions come first week of June.
While a few of my pageant colleagues were slightly taken aback upon learning that Gazini Christiana Ganados Ewamer surfaced as Official Candidate of Miss Pearl of the Philippines 2016 instead of the previously-anticipated signing-up for Bb. Pilipinas 2016, I took it as possibly a personal assurance on the part of this lovely Cebuana to create a superior impact in the brand-new pageant and hopefully become its inaugural winner come May 14.
Now some might ask again why she went from Miss World Philippines 2014 to a lesser known competition. And I thought, why not? The possibility of this participation affecting her stock value (read: overall assessment of pageant experts) for future entry into the nationals may be imminent. But then again, she is standing out effortlessly among the Miss Pearl of the Philippines joiners as expected. Once she clinches this one (which I can confidently say she will), the achievement is already in the bag and will remain in place should she come forward to the major beauty derby next year or in 2018.
So I can only wish Gazini the best in this endeavor. She deserves to get a shining victory regardless of the contest’s still-untested appeal to the public. 🙂

Origin Woman is starting to get more hype nowadays. Sven Chua, Jonas Borces and the team in Cebu are crackling like the famous Chicharon in Carcar. And they have excellent reasons to brag about. No, make them beautiful ones if you will. There is Miss Earth 2014 Jamie Herrell to begin with. She is like the muse. And then there are the ladies who were blogged here before as joining Bb. Pilipinas 2016 – Hazel Ortiz, Maria Gigante, Cynthia Thomalla and Gazini Ganados. Add to the mix the likes of Kim Covert, Dianne Santillan, Monica Tawide, Steffi Aberasturi, Kristine Beltran, Jessa Cariaga, Chloe Harris and Daina Nelson. Even Miss Cebu 2016 Raine Baljak is in the fold. Collectively, they are more than just tall and beautiful ladies under the Origin Woman tag.
This is Origin Model Management of Cebu – “Gracing covers, walking runways, transcending standards. That is an Origin model.”
Is this the breakaway group many people in local pageant circles are talking about? Well, you can call them whatever you want. I will only use the word “Origin” from now on. No intrigues. No hushed whispers. No secrets.
The onslaught of beauties of Cebu continues. This time, the winner of the recently-concluded Miss Mandaue 2015 comes to your screen. Her name is Ena Velasco, standing 5’9″ and a product of Sven Chua’s Origin Model Management which handles the modeling careers of Jamie Herrell and Gazini Ganados.
Back in 2012, Ena was named Miss Masskara in Bacolod. A year after, she went on to claim the Miss Southwestern University title which awarded her a meaningful prize – 100% scholarship to take up her Medicine studies in the institution. In between, she takes ramp and print modeling assignments for earn her own keep.
But being part of KF Cebu could only mean that Jonas Borces will groom her for Bb. Pilipinas, either next year or 2017. So do you think she has the potentials to follow the likes of Kris Tiffany Janson and Rogelie Catacutan in the nationals? 😉
