My final choices for the Miss Universe Philippines | Bb. Pilipinas 2019 titleholders
Since I have already completed my Final Predictions for Miss Universe Philippines | Bb. Pilipinas 2019 titleholders, let me share the two runners-up in my list.
Even at the onset of competition, I have always been consistent in discussing to my pageant media colleagues that Hannah Arnold is a potential Miss Universe Philippines winner if she will return in 2020 – by which time all the loose threads in her preparations will have been neatly stitched for one big final viewing.
Yes, I know. Jessarie Dumaguing is not even in my list of Top 20 released earlier last week. But her performance of late has convinced me that I should’ve included her in the first place. And for this lady from Puerto Princesa to advance to the Top 15 and inch her way up to the winners’ circle is not an impossibility by now.
That being said, I will share four (4) big spoilers on Sunday night aside from Jessarie:
If anyone among Ilene de Vera, Resham Ramirez Saeed, Samantha Lo and Nicole Guerrero will get the biggest break when it matters most, then expect one or two of them to get past the expected winners and get their due rewards.
My #Infinity8 for Bb. Pilipinas Globe 2019
As we go to the fourth title of Bb. Pilipinas 2019, I can’t help but share with you the difficulty in assigning a potential winner for a crown that is considered by (practically) everyone to be less prestigious than the rest. And I say that without any hints of being on the offense or anything. After all, BPCI has always stated that all six (6) titles are of equal ranking. I’m just giving credit to the number of participating delegates, branding and media mileage that the other international competitions are getting annually in comparison.
The Miss Globe Beauty Pageant is a Montreal-based organization being run by the Deliart Association. Following the victory of Ann Colis last 2015, its image has been greatly benefitted in the Philippines by being officially included in the lineup of franchises BPCI has in its ownership. And while pageant fans and followers have not really given its full thumbs-up to the same, the affiliation with Binibining Pilipinas makes it a title still worth winning.
And so, I present to you my #Infinity8 for Bb. Pilipinas Globe 2019:
Jessica Marasigan of Malabon
Sigrid Grace Flores of Iloilo
Maria Andrea Abesamis of Pasig
Leren Mae Bautista of Laguna
Denise Omorog of Baras, Catanduanes
Ilene de Vera of Mandaue City
Emma Tiglao of Pampanga
Joanna Tolledo of Caloocan
We’re left with seven (7) choices after removing Emma Tiglao from the list. I really would love to see both Leren Mae Bautista and Ilene de Vera getting any of the six crowns. Both ladies have already proven themselves worthy after coming out on top of Mutya ng Pilipinas during their respective years. In my heart, I can give them the Globe crown without hesitations. I initially wanted to add Aya Abesamis to the fray, but I digressed because it will be such an odd play that would need tons of explanation to people who may or may not care.
Now how do I break the tie? After much consideration, I stacked their individual achievements and focused on what each can offer to the BPCI table. And I saw the Lagunense as someone who deserves to be crowned more than the lady from Mandaue City (not to mention that the former already has an international win to her name). The Miss Globe may not be the honor that her team is originally hoping for. But at the end of the day, a Bb. Pilipinas title is still more precious than a runner-up position. It is a platform by which she can use her empowered status to pay forward the anti-bullying empowerment to more people.
I choose Leren Mae Bautista to succeed Michele Gumabao. Therefore, she is my final pick for Bb. Pilipinas Globe 2019.
