Never mind the pressure of bringing home the country’s first Miss Intercontinental crown for now. It’s the Holiday Season and Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental 2017 Katarina Rodriguez wants to share her blessings first by endorsing #LahatSanta (or Everyone’s a Santa) and encouraging people to help make Christmas merrier for the kids. You can sign up at www.lahatsanta.ph and then you will receive a free kit from Save the Children Philippines.
Be a hero for the children and wear the hat proudly!
And as a bonus, watch the video of Katja where she explains the change in her perspectives from a mere beautiful face to an Asia’s Next Top Model runner-up to a Bb. Pilipinas titleholder who will carry the weight of the entire Philippines come January for her mission abroad.
The playing field for our national beauty titlists have just gotten tighter. With three of the four organizations with bragging rights for their respective international wins, Bb. Pilipinas is starting to feel the pressure of delivering a win for the country.
Miss World Philippines has claimed Reina Hispanoamericana, Miss Philippines Earth has the Miss Earth title back to its homebase and Mutya ng Pilipinas has just gotten the Miss Tourism International last night in Malaysia.
No one is feeling the weight more than Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental Katarina Rodriguez, on whose shoulders rest the responsibility of bringing home the Miss Intercontinental title for the first time. She is the only remaining member of the 2017 batch left to compete. Do you think she has it in her to bring one more crowning glory for the Philippines by mid-January?

Aside from the Triple Send-Off for Bb. Pilipinas 2017 Queens Rachel Peters, Chanel Olive Thomas and Katarina Rodriguez, it was also a Double Homecoming Presscon for The Miss Globe 2017 1st Runner-Up Nelda Ibe and Miss Grand International 2017 Elizabeth Clenci that made the entire event more meaningful for all members of the Press who attended.
Our departing ladies are all eager to prove their worth in the international pageant arena, especially that pressure is mounting on their anticipated successes abroad. Instead of feeling the weight on theor shoulders, the motivation is coming from the performances of everyone ahead of them. Let us now watch videos of the well-wishes given by the three departing Queens to each other.
Today, at around 3pm, the last big send-off for our Bb. Pilipinas 2017 Queens will take place at the Novotel Manila Araneta Center. A strictly invitational affair, it will be a 3-in-1 media gathering for Miss Universe Philippines 2017 Rachel Peters (who needs to be in Las Vegas by the 13th at the latest), Bb. Pilipinas Supranational 2017 Chanel Olive Thomas (who should depart for Poland soon) and Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental 2017 Katarina Rodriguez (who still has a little more elbow room to prepare herself for Sri Lanka).
This is a must-coverage for normannorman.com as BPCI expects Joy Arguil and I to be present at the event. And we will bring the happenings to you as soon as available.
In the meantime, below is a BTS video clip of the latest photoshoot of Rachel with Raymond Saldaña as recorded by Ron Angeles. Just to whet your appetite. 🙂

It won’t be long till Bb. Pilipinas InterContinental 2017 Katarina Rodriguez her chance to take the spotlight and start her mission in Sri Lanka for Miss InterContinental 2017. For starters, she will have her official send-off this coming Monday alongside Rachel Peters amd Chanel Olive Thomas. She may be the last to compete among our crowned Binibinis but that also means that she will have the chunkier part of December to herself as practically all the other ladies have already completed their missions by then.
Do you still feel that Katja will be one of our most successful reps this year?
