Joselle Mariano is gearing up for Bb. Pilipinas 2017
Joselle Mariano has been seen taking the pageant route from Mutya ng Pilipinas 2013 to Miss Philippines Earth 2014 to Miss Republic of the Philippines 2015. In the last of the three, she achieved her personal best performance so far by getting Miss Luzon (or 1st Runner-Up in rank
). This year, she is upping the stakes by gearing up for what could be her biggest challenge so far – Bb. Pilipinas 2017.
KF-trained Joselle knows the ins and outs of the beauty contest game by now. And she has prepared well for the nationals. Before the weekend, she would have already filed her application at the BPCI office and well on her way to the bloody screenings next week. I say bloody because the 54th edition is seen by many as the toughest so far with the number of interested ladies exceeding the past number of years.
Will she make it?
Good luck to you, Joselle! 🙂
Will she be one of the Binibinis for 2017?
Is Daisha Jimenez ready for the rigors of Bb. Pilipinas?
Now this one is a veritable wish list beauty on my part, so it’s a feature that is intended more to tease than to confirm anything. The gorgeous Daisha Jimenez – who is only 19 years old – could be a shoo-in to win a national pageant title given her looks, communication skills and overall impact as a potential Bb. Pilipinas candidate. But is she ready for the big league as early as now? Methinks that – given more exposure and experience – she could really turn into a winner. At 5’9″, she actually can still grow at least an inch or more. And with that, the chances of evolving into a more serious contender will follow.
How about you, dear readers? Are you familiar with Daisha? Share your thoughts. 🙂
PS. Daisha is part of Kagandahang Flores (KF), regardless of the brand of national pageant you will see her being fielded in this year.
Ready-or-not? Or Ready-when-truly-ready?
Wanna see a return of Angelique de Leon to the Bb. Pilipinas stage?
At 26, Angelique Celine de Leon has only up to Bb. Pilipinas 2017 as her one final attempt to achieve the pageant glory that has escaped her grasp in 2014 and last year. And this lovely and articulate lady is being talked about as making the big move to a new camp – from RL to KF, I was told. Are you ready to see her third appearance at the Smart Araneta Coliseum this summer?
I’m game for Angelique de Leon 3.0. She has definitely leveled up from the first to the second. And this year could be her best ever.
Watch out, dear readers!
From London, UK, here comes Christa Borja for Bb. Pilipinas 2017
Christa Borja may have migrated with her family to London, England when she was only 14, but she has maintained her Filipino values and qualities. Credit goes to the strong Pinoy communities in England that allowed her to keep everything intact despite living a Londoner’s lifestyle for practically a decade now.
5’9″ Christa reigned as Miss Philippines UK 2015, and is now aiming for a Binibini slot in Bb. Pilipinas 2017 if all things fall into place. She previously worked as Merhandising Assistant of Marks & Spencer, while doing volunteer work with Battersea Dogs and Cats Home.
Christa has been dutifully preparing herself for the screenings by attending fitness workouts at Golds Gym and getting into pageant training mode at the KF camp in QC.

Good luck, Christa! 🙂
Hazel has already represented the Philippines in two international competitions. Is she ready for Bb. Pilipinas? (Photo credits: Ross Paris, Edmund Chua and JR Noses)
Interestingly, dusky Pinay beauty Hazel Ortiz has already worn the Philippine sash in two international competitions abroad the past few years. After she reigned as Slimmers World Miss Bikini Philippines 2014, she went on to Long Beach, California to participate in the WCOPA2015 in the female model category. Last year, she flew to Cape Town, South Africa where she was Miss Philippines during World Supermodel 2016. Both experiences gave her the polish and confidence to face up to bigger challenges in the pageant big league. Bb. Pilipinas, that is.
Will Hazel be one of the ladies trooping to the BPCI Office at the Araneta Coliseum on or before the February 24 deadline? I’m inclined to believe she is. And wouldn’t it be nice to have a smoldering hot beauty like her in this year’s roster?
Your thoughts, dear readers? 🙂
PS. Happy Valentine’s Day to all!
Mia Hernandez Howell for Bb. Pilipinas 2017

And the fencer is back! Mia Alysson Hernandez Howell will show that she has the guts and confidence more than any sable, foil or epee events sha may have mastered in the past. And this articulate beauty will turn the heat more than ever with her excellent communication skills and expressive self once the pressure to do Q&A becomes a battle of wits and reasoning.
Mia joined Bb. Pilipinas 2015 and signed up for Miss World Philippines 2015 afterwards. She has the 2nd Princess crown to be proud of. But more than a princess she dreams of herself to be. A Queen’s title is what she is aiming for. And once she sets her eyes on the prize, there’s no stopping this KF bet in making her second appearance on the Bb. Pilipinas stage more fulfilling.
In the meantime, here is Mia’s fun video from Bb. Pilipinas 2015.

Good luck to you, Mia! 🙂
From Bulacan, Vianca Louise Marcelo will go for Bb. Pilipinas 2017

Vianca Louise Marcelo is a winsome Bulakenya
who is a relatively familiar pageant face by way of her participation in both Miss World Philippines 2015 and Reyna ng Aliwan 2015 (where she was the Singkaban Festival Queen
). She has been steadily plotting her game plan for the nationals with Kagandahang Flores. And by now, she is more than ready to plunge into the biggest challenge of her career in beauty contests.
Vianca is always brimming with confidence. She knows what it takes to impress people around her and would not show any sign of reluctance should screenings require passing through the dreaded Q&A right away.
Good luck in becoming a Binibini, Vianca! 🙂
