If you’re an influencer and digital content creator who’s tall, pretty and with an always engaging personality, chances are that going into pageantry is a logical option to consider.
Just like Jen Barangan from Carcar City, Cebu who made the following tiktok video go viral from zero to hero.
After losing her job as Flight Attendant at Cebu Pacific due to the pandemic, Jen went full blast with her lifestyle vlogging. She is now a certified YouTube personality with 713,000 subscribers to date. Although her presence on IG doesn’t compare in terms of numbers, she still commands a healthy 150,000 followers. On Facebook, she has 221,000 right now.
Now, can she translate the talent into a crown? Why not? She is highly relatable.
The photo on the left shows her at Kagandahang Flores camp with Rodgil Flores – a sign of her next step.
Let’s see how things go for this Cebuana go-getter from here.
Here are the nine ladies of Aces & Queens who made it as Official Candidates of Miss World Philippines 2021:
Anne De Mesa
Riana Agatha Pangindian
Danica Theresa Dilla
Kim Panaligan Babao
Tatyana Alexi Austria
Tracy Maureen Perez
Meanwhile, here are the fourteen (14) ladies of Kagandahang Flores who made it as Official Candidates of Miss World Philippines 2021 for now:
Donna Marie Jan Balaoro
Reziah Angelica Datu Famorcan
Kimberly Anne Cimafranca

If you ask me, Maureen Montagne is now best bet of KF Crown.Glory.Legacy to tale home a crown in Bb. Pilipinas 2021.
See her shine even more from this point onwards. The new photos below give us a peek into her softer, more radiant presence.
How do you like her now?

Up to now, the impact of beauty camps in Bb. Pilipinas has always been topic of conversation. It cannot be denied that the support of an established group can do wonders to the bid of any aspiring beauty queen.
In the case of Bb Pilipinas 2021, the analysis can get more interesting.
Just look at the four (4) Independents. Two of them are considered front-runners, and crown-worthy at that. Gabrielle Basiano under RL’s Angels and Honey Cartasano under Paolo Ballesteros are reaping the benefits of a targeted training. Their pictorials are always well-handled, just as the concepts are carefully planned. It is also beneficial that these two ladies have glam teams all to themselves. And lest you forget, Lesley Ticaro is a potential spoiler. She may not have the most physically-present Tagum-based core group all the time because of distance. But on her own, she is starting to shine.
As far as Aces & Queens is concerned, they may only have six to offer. But let’s be honest. Half of them could be eventual winners. Hannah Arnold, Karen Laurrie Mendoza and Patricia Denise Babista are strong contenders, while Cindy Obeñita, Carina Cariño and Shaira Rona can never be classified as push-overs. If camp affiliation is not an “issue”, it would be easy to predict two crowns going to this camp.
And lastly, the dominating group in Bb Pilipinas 2021 is Kagandahang Flores with twenty-four (24).
It would be unimaginable to see them not getting two crowns at least. By sheer percentage or probability, KF stands to shine the most in terms of numbers and presence. With Vickie Rushton already out of the race, the flag-bearer position has unquestionably landed on the lap of Maureen Montagne. I just cannot see her going home empty-handed at this point.
Next to MM, the ones likeliest to be plucked out for serious consideration are Justine Felizarta, Patrizia Garcia, Francesca Taruc and Samantha Panlilio.
And there are only four (4) crowns at stake. It makes me wonder if BPCI will resurrect the Bb. Pilipinas Tourism crown so that there will be a 5th titleholder who can be earmarked for a possible new franchise that they can acquire after the finals. Or perhaps, have four (4) runners-up for a change.
Your thoughts, dear readers?
Here are photos from the recently-concluded Meet-and-Greet of Binibini Meiji Cruz of Valenzuela with the pageant media. This lady is a potential spoiler in the ongoing competition of Bb. Pilipinas 2021. And if she accurately plays her game plan between now and April 17, she just might nail a precious victory. After all, hardwork and loyalty can have its rewards.
All these images were taken at the poolside of Kagandahang Flores KF for Crown. for Country.
Here are photos from yesterday’s Meet-and-Greet of Binibini Alexandra Faith Garcia with the pageant media at KF Camp.
Faith was at her happiest during the event. And she is more than ready to resume her journey towards a Bb. Pilipinas crown.
I wish her the best of luck. This beauty from Olongapo has paid her pageant dues for several years now. And it’s high time that she reaps the fruits of her patience and efforts.

It was a meet-and-greet I simply couldn’t say no to. For starters, having an event like this happens in Alabang (or the south of Metro Manila) very rarely. Since I reside in Parañaque, going to Molito Lifestyle Centre is a breeze. Secondly, I discovered my not-so-distant blood relations with the honoree. My paternal grandmother and her father are aunt and nephew, respectively. And for that matter, the very first Bb. Pilipinas – her aunt Myrna Panlilio – is also common in our thread.
Here are some photos and videos from the meet-and-greet with #Binibini1 Samantha Alexandra Panlilio of Cavite and invited members of the pageant media.
Below, she answers a few questions from your blogger:
Now, she talks about part of her advocacy as a potential Beauty Queen:
And will she be the next “Samantha” to be crowned Bb. Pilipinas?
Samantha Panlilio – in person – tends to give me an Elizabeth Clenci vibe to be honest. She has this cool aura about her. If she can channel more of this and up her ante even more, then I won’t be surprised if she finds herself on the shortlisted beeline for one of the crowns on April 17.
Good luck, Sam!
Here are departure photos of Bb. Pilipinas Grand International 2020 Samantha Bernardo at NAIA before boarding her Philippine Airlines flight that will leave for the Land of Smiles where she will join the other candidates vying for Miss Grand International.
She was seen at the airport by the KF Crown.Glory.Legacy team led by Rodgil Flores, as well as her loved ones.
Best of luck in the competition, Sam!
