The Search will definitely be starting soon!
This is neither an official announcement nor the official poster
So since today is already the first day of February, allow me to start the ball rolling or fan the flames of excitement for the upcoming search that will officially unreel soon. This. Is. Binibining Pilipinas. 2017.
The 65th Miss Universe is now over. The fond memories are starting to creep back inside my head, but pageant life goes on. And this year’s screenings for the national successors of Miss Universe Philippines 2016 Maxine Medina, Miss International 2016 Kylie Verzosa, Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental 2016 Jennifer Hammond, Bb. Pilipinas Supranational 2016 Joanna Eden, Miss Grand International 1st Runner-Up Nicole Cordoves and The Miss Globe 2016 3rd Runner-Up Nichole Manalo will be tougher than all previous editions combined. Why? Because right from the get-go (or scheduled screening dates if you will), a grill-worthy Q&A will be conducted in order to add a more in-depth assessment of interested ladies who will sign up.
So you think you can become the next Bb. Pilipinas? Watch out for the formal announcement soon. And get into your beauty-and-brains mode faster than you can say “Binibini!” 🙂
PS. Early talks are saying that the repeaters and crossovers will lord it over this year. We’ll see about that. 😉
3rd Runner-Up is Nichole’s Official Placement
The photos is this blog post signify that Bb. Pilipinas Globe 2016 Nichole Manalo is the official 3rd Runner-Up of The Miss Globe 2016.
I know what your next question will be, dear readers. Why was the placement unannounced during the live finals that denied our Queen the special moment of being photographed alongside with the winners? Well, I wish I could give you a statement from the organizers. All I have are these images of Nichole with the 3rd Runner-Up crown. These were taken after the finals during a private moment during post-coronation when the organizers from Deliart Association made the informal crowning of two more runners-up. Miss South Africa was also named 4th Runner-Up. Click the link below for the video on FB.

Nichole is now on her way back to the Philippines. At least we know what her final ranking is now, and with a 3rd Runner-Up crown to prove the claim.
An Indian Supermodel was crowned The Miss Globe 2016 during the finals of the pageant in Tirana, Albania. Dimple Patel succeeds last year’s winner Ann Colis of the Philippines. Yenny Carrillo of Colombia was named 1st Runner-Up, with host delegate Kristina Skurra getting 2nd Runner-Up honors.
Miss Philippines Nichole Manalo finished in the Top 10 (or Top 11 if you will) and was also named Miss Dream Girl of the World (or the prettiest among the candidates).
Congratulations to all the winners!

According to The Miss Globe 2015 Ann Colis, below are two of the possible Live Streaming links for the finals of The Miss Globe 2016 from Tirana, Albania.
Let’s hope either of the links will work so that we can check out the live proceedings and see our very own Nichole Manalo.

There is a seven-hour difference between Manila, Philippines and Tirana, Albania. So if the finals of The Miss Globe 2016 will start at around 7pm-ish over there, then that would be around 2am of Saturday (November 26) here. Today is the date when we shall all find out who the successor of Ann Colis will be and if Bb. Pilipinas Globe 2016 Nichole Manalo has made strong enough strides to walk away with the crown that will bring her dreams of a back-to-back win to a most meaningful realization.
I know that our bet is one of the more highly-regarded candidates in this year’s batch. And even if one pageant follower will check the roster only for the first time, it would be hard to ignore the beauty and presence of Nichole in the competition. She stands out without a doubt. So if the Albanian organizers do not mind giving the 2016 crown to another Filipina, then I don’t see any reason for missing the victory (or coming very very close to it at worst).
From all of us here at normannorman.com, we wish you the back-to-back crown, Nichole Manalo!

P.S. There is no advise yet on whether a Live Streaming of the Finals will happen or not. Stay tuned for last-minute updates on the finals of The Miss Globe 2016.

Tirana, Albania may be far away but the updates on The Miss Globe 2016 are coming just as if the competition is being held just around Asia.
Yesterday, Bb. Pilipinas Globe 2016 Nichole Manalo made her first cited impact when she placed 3rd during the Miss Bikini side competition topped by Miss South Africa, with Colombia placing 2nd. Prior to this, she joined the other delegates on a tour of the Albanian capital mixed with sponsor visits in between.
I am sure the organizers are keeping an eye on our bet. Nichole is a definite stunner and by now, she has already adjusted well to the new settings.
And I will keep you regularly posted on what’s happening in Albania. 😉
