In photos: Bb. Pilipinas Grand International 2016 and Miss Grand International 2016 1st Runner-Up Nicole Cordoves during her coaching session with Bb. Pilipinas Grand International 2020 Samantha Bernardo. Having been a candidate, placer and – ultimately – host of the pageant finals – the former knows more than a few tips and tricks on how to play the MGI game and get on the good side of Nawatt Itsaragrisil in the process. So it really helps that the two spent quality time together before the latter departs for Thailand on February 24.
Our bet will arrive in the Land of Smiles days before the bulk of this year’s delegates will check-in by February 28/March 1.
Good luck, Sam!
Sharing with you the latest video of Bb. Pilipinas mentor Nicole Cordoves on how to speak from the heart and not sound rehearsed when communicating as pageant candidates.
The two Bb. Pilipinas mentors – Catriona Gray and Nicole Cordoves – reviewed the first Bb. Pilipinas workshop they conducted.
Since you already have watched almost all the introduction videos of the Binibinis, watch their comments/impressions below to compare with yours.
“When in doubt, wear denim.” Or wear knee-high boots.

Sharing with you the second part of our video discussion with Nicole Cordoves. This time, the focus was on making hot picks, a few TOTGA (The one that got away) ladies and a pageant horror story of sorts that was thankfully edited after our host accidentally spilled a specific name that could have started another round of controversy if left as is.
Part 1 of our video collaboration with Bb. Pilipinas mentor Nicole Cordoves is here. Watch as Tita Lavinia, Voltaire Tayag and I exchange wits and pageant pet peeves with her.

This video was originally scheduled for posting last Friday night. But a delay in the uploading pushed the schedule to late yesterday.
Here now are mentors Catriona Gray and Nicole Cordoves during their first online meet-up with the Binibinis of Bb. Pilipinas 2020.
Tomorrow afternoon at 3pm, catch one of the many mentoring sessions that will be conducted by Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray and Miss Grand International 2016 1st Runner-Up Nicole Cordoves with the Bb. Pilipinas 2020 candidates in the pageant’s FB page.
With an upcoming video blog with Nicole Cordoves in the works (where she will turn the tables on the pageant media and ask all the questions instead), I thought it best to share her latest content where the topic is about Beauty Queens and Politics and Social Media.
By the way, Nicole has also started her mentoring session with the Bb. Pilipinas 2020 candidates yesterday.
