Height is always an important factor in Bb. Pilipinas, let alone any nationwide beauty pageant for that matter. In the case of the nationals, assigned pin numbers are clear indications of who are the tallest in the batch. And in the current batch made up of forty (40) gorgeous ladies, it would be easy to pinpoint that the middle dwellers are the most statuesque – 18, 19, 20 and 21 to be specific.
Binibini 18 Sheena Seinne Dalo of Ilocos Norte is 5’11” or just a tad shy of this number to be exact. Binibini 19 Maria Lina Neri Prongoso is a proud 5’10” from the Bicol Region. The same follows for Supermodel Binibini 20 Kim Ross delos Santos who stands an ideal 5’10” based on her set card as a runway veteran. And the tallest of them all is Binibini 21 Jessica Gonzales of Bulacan Province who is virtually 6’0 tall, but would be safely tape-measured at around 5’11.5″ just to be very exact.
Being the tallest is definitely no assurance of victory at the onset. If at any, pageant followers have learned to overlook the height in favor of a truly standout face and presence. But if these four ladies prove that they have a lot more going for them than just towering presence, then wouldn’t it be cool to see a set of winners who can never be commented as short by international standards?
I am optimistic about Sheena, Lina, Kim Ross and Jessica. Are you, dear readers? 😉
