Tonight is the night for Slimmers World Miss Bikini Philippines 2016!
I selected eight (8) sexy stunners to give the Miss Bikini Philippines 2016 title a good fight
This is judgment night for Slimmers World Miss Bikini Philippines 2016 at the Newport Performing Arts Theater of Resorts World Manila. And instead of picking a Top 10 or Top 12 among the thirty (30) competitors for the crown (currently being held by MPE2016 contestant Ma. Fatima “Tim” Alsowyed
), I opted to share just eight (8) who – in my opinion – stood out during the Pre-Pageant where the Swimsuit, Creative Posing and Evening Gown segments were judged.
I remain solid with my Top 3 choices – Christine Opiaza, Ivy Tapic and Clarise Perez – since there will be one big winner and two runners-up after all.

Of course, spoilers are always waiting in the wings to steal the thunder from the front-runners. I am choosing Geri Camargo (a standout 16 year-old
), Sollaire Rallos (the openly gay candidate among the ladies
) and Rufaida Babudin (who has really improved a lot compared to her MWP2012 days

Whoever wins tonight, congratulations in advance! You will be in for a whole new world of health, fitness and glam! 😀
Earlier in the day, the first leg of the NCR Screening for Miss Republic of the Philippines got underway at the Function Room of Pioneer Highlands in Mandaluyong City. Your blogger sat on the panel as part of the screening committee, alongside Miss RP President Lynette Padolina and businesswomen Marcott Almeda and Geraldine Beltran.
The screenees had a relatively long grilling time as Ms. Padolina made the extra effort to measure the ladies’ ability to explain themselves and their respective advocacies. Included among those who were short-listed for the final assessment are Riza Diego (a 5’10” beauty with good communication skills), Ma. Daziella Gange, Anna Mae Cagurangan, Jenny Rose Ignacio and Mary Rose Cajayon. They will join the rest of the contenders for the last leg on July 11 at the Fisher Mall to know the complete cast of Official Candidates who will vie for Miss Republic of the Philippines.
