Last year, pin number 25 proved to work wonders for the previous wearer MJ Lastimosa who went on to top Bb. Pilipinas 2014 and is now competing in Doral Miami for the 63rd Miss Universe Pageant.
This year, the girl who got the same pin is Rogelie Catacutan from KF and KF Cebu (courtesy of Jonas Borces). And while the number assignment is something that this Cebuana beauty may not be too mindful of, it creates a bit of interest if she can be made another winner of the same.
I know it’s quite a stretch to assume something out of the whole thing. But if we base things on how Rogelie has been transformed by her mentors, then chances of performing well aren’t really that far-fetched. 😉

I uploaded last December 12, 2014 about the Mutya ning Kapampangan
2014 winners where she placed 3rd Runner-Up to eventual titleholder Mary Angelique Manto. Aside from that, she was also a representative of her province in the Miss Casino Filipino 2014 competition won by Rogelie Catacutan.
This 20 year-old 5’9″ native of Mabalacat is a proud degree holder in Speech Pathology from the University of the Philippines-Manila. She is an advocate of education and would love to take part in projects that create more awareness of its importance.
Will Mao make it in the final selection of Bb. Pilipinas 2015 Official Candidates? This KF-trained lass is confident she can. 😉

KF Cebu is grooming a sole candidate for Bb. Pilipinas 2015. Her name is Rogelie Catacutan.
KF Cebu is in the thick of preparations for Bb. Pilipinas 2015 at the moment. And as the group announced on Facebook via Jonas Borces, they decided to focus on training and polishing a solo candidate – Rogelie Catacutan.
You will remember the beautiful 5’8″ Cebuana as the winner of Miss Casino Filipino 2014 last September. And at the rate she is going at the transformation, I believe that there are a lot of upsides going for her bid. Aside from a good height, she has the versatile face that can help in coming up with different hair and make-up stylings. Besides, I trust her mentor, Jonas B., to fully utilize his expertise in bringing out the best in his ward.
Watch out for this girl come screening time for Bb. Pilipinas 2015. I am looking forward to seeing her final look once next year’s aspirants start showing up at Gateway. 😉

The strong winds and heavy rains of Tropical Storm Mario get the blame for the postponement of the Miss Casino Filipino 2014 finals last Friday. Good thing the organizers were quick in resetting the event for last night at the Midas Hotel and Casino.
And Cebu was the big winner, copping three (3) of the Top 5 places with a well-deserved victory for Rogelie Catacutan. She eventually eased out early pick Emma Mary Tiglao (of CF-Angeles) who had to settle for 1st Runner-up. The 2nd- and 3rd Runners-up are also from Cebu with Maria Fatima Al-Sowyed and Julienne Hazel Pensarga, respectively. Jannie Alipoon of CF-Hyatt completed the magic circle by being named 4th Runner-up.
Aside from nailing the crown, Rogelie was also named winner of three important special awards, namely, Best in Swimsuit, Best in Long Gown and Best in Talent. Excellent job training her, KF Cebu!
Jannie, Julienne, Rogelie, Emma and Fatima once more.
Congratulations to all the Top 5 ladies! 🙂
This one's happening tonight!
One of the thirty ladies above will be crowned Miss Casino Filipino 2014 tonight
While a big chunk of my friends will be heading over to SM MOA Arena to ogle at denim- and underwear-clad celebrities and models walking the ramp in Bench for “The Naked Truth
” tonight, a good number will prefer instead to avoid the big crowds and troop to Midas Hotel and Casino to watch Miss Casino Filipino 2014
. Thirty young and beautiful Filipinas representing different CF centers all over the country are vying for the crown that comes with a half a million pesos in cash prize. Among them, I am specifically giving my good luck wishes to the six (6) contestants below. I would be happy to see one of them win, especially former Binibini Emma Mary Tiglao.

Miss Casino Filipino 2014 may not be as prestigious as the other national beauty pageants, but nobody can contest that it is one of the most generous in prizes. Aside from the top finisher with a cash bounty of PhP500,000, the four (4) runners-up will not come home empty-handed. They will receive PhP400,000. Php300,000, Php200,000 and Php100,000, depending on the final rank. Not bad. 😉
