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. 😉
