Miss Millennial Philippines is looking like a good breeding ground for beautiful ladies who have future plans of doing the big league of national pageantry. And this young beauty from Pampanga – who reigned as Mutya ning Kapampangan 2018 and Miss Millennial Pampanga 2019 – has the budding potential to do just that. In fact, she may very well be a future Binibini – either in 2020 or soon after.
Angela Maria Robson placed 1st Runner-Up during this year’s edition of the youth-oriented tourism pageant of the noontime show ‘Eat Bulaga’. And to be able to make it to the creme de la creme of this annual competition is no mean feat considering how fierce the young contenders from all over the Philippines are. Below are videos of her Tourism pitch for Pampanga and full performance during the finals.
If you’re looking for a tall, pretty and fresh aspirant for the nationals, then include Angela on your short-list. While she may still benefit from more improvements in her presentation skills (do consider that the candidates were coached to be more lively and TV-friendly during Miss Millennial Philippines), she has the initial ingredients to become a worthwhile Binibini.
Another fresh-faced beauty here. But if you did follow this year’s search for Miss Millennial Philippines, then chances are she made a mark inside your head. During the finals’ Top 10 Q&A, she is the Lanao del Norte representative who gave quite a convincing mouthful of answers (in English) not once, but thrice. For some, her eager beaver stance may not sit well. But you can’t deny the fact that she has lots of confidence for a 19 year-old.
Watch this video.
Annabelle is tall and beautiful. She is also an academic standout. While this strength does not guarantee anything at this point, her potentials are definitely on the upswing. And it only takes a well-meaninged mentor to polish whatever qualities she possesses, especially as a communicator. Her youth shouldn’t be a hindrance. If a 19 year-old Miss Kenya can make Top 12 in Miss World 2019, then we cannot slap this Iliganon with the immaturity card just yet. Millennials are a new breed of aggressors.
I have a hunch that we will see Miss McDonnell signing up for the nationals next month or shortly after.
Miss Millennial Cebu Nicole Borromeo achieved a back-to-back win for Cebu after she was crowned Miss Millennial Philippines 2019 during the Grand Coronation Day on Eat Bulaga. She now succeeds last year’s Shaila Rebortera.
Her court includes:
1st Runner-Up Angela Maria Robson of Pampanga
2nd Runner-Up Annabelle Mae McDonnell of Lanao Del Norte
3rd Runner-Up Maica Martinez of Nueva Ecija
More than three months after being crowned as Reyna ng Aliwan 2019 during this year’s Aliwan Fiesta, Nicole Borromeo (of Sinulog Festival of Cebu) was stripped of the title when the organizers finally reached a decision to make the bold move when the Cebuana joined Miss Millennial Philippines 2019 – a direct violation of the stipulations in her contract which she and her manager conformed to prior to winning the annual festival-themed national competition last May.
In her place, 2nd Runner-Up Roi Neeve Comanda of Panagbenga Festival of Baguio City was chosen to take over the unfulfilled reign, and was given her ceremonial crowning during a Press Conference held at the Davao Ballroom of Sofitel Philippine Plaza.
To continue what Borromeo (right photo
) is now unable to do, Neeve will be the one to tour around the Philippines and grace the various festivals in the country in preparation for the next Aliwan Fiesta. She reigned as Miss Baguio Tourism last year. She is 20 years old and a freshman Tourism major at the University of the Cordilleras.
Best of luck to the new Reyna Ng Aliwan!

During last week’s finals of Miss Kuyamis 2019 at the Tagoloan Dome in Misamis Oriental, a 19 year-old beauty from the Municipality of Medina outclassed nineteen (19) other contenders to be the best in the annual pageant that celebrates the beauty, tourism and culture of the Northern Mindanao province. Her name is Chella Grace Falconer.

Chella is no pageant newbie. In fact, she already took part in Mutya ng Pilipinas 2017 where she placed in the Top 10. She was only 17 back then. This time around, she returned with an entirely polished version of herself to be the unanimous choice of the judges to win the Miss Kuyamis title and become the representative of Misamis Oriental in the national competition of either Miss Millennial Philippines 2019 or Miss Earth Philippines 2019.
I love it that provincial pageants have already managed to keep pace with the production of their national counterparts. And with the leadership of Governor Bambi Emano and Provincial Tourism Officer Atty Jeffrey Saclot, the finals was a big success. It was mounted seamlessly under the direction of Dennis Almazan, with Celebrity Designer Bea Bianca providing the swimwear and evening gowns of the ladies. A tribute was also given to two of their successful homegrown achievers – Miss Earth Philippines Water 2018 Berjayneth Chee and Miss Millennial Philippines 2018 1st Runner-Up Danna Rose Socaoco.
Watch out for more of Chella this year as she prepares herself for the even bigger challenge of winning in the national level and bringing more pride to the entire MisOr.
