Earlier at the launch of Ali X – the cool, hip and newest wing of Ali Mall at The Araneta Center, the 40 Binibinis of Bb. Pilipinas 2019 made their first public appearance. The ladies really enjoyed the Art+LifestyleXInterest vibe of the place.
Below are some of the photos taken during the event.
“Crème de la crème” means the ‘best of the best’ and “Premier Classement” means ‘first classification’. In the just started Bb. Pilipinas 2019, it would be extremely difficult to make early pronouncements as to who will win the six titles at stake.
So for now, I give to you the twelve (12) #Binibinis who made strong initial impacts on me. I took the liberty of not ranking them according to my preferences just yet. Instead, I am listing the names down according to their respective numbers in the competition:
Binibini 13 Aya Abesamis
Binibini 14 Leren Mae M. Bautista
Binibini 16 Denise Omorog
Binibini 17 Patch Magtanong
Binibini 18 Hannah Arnold
Binibini 19 Ilene de Vera
Binibini 20 Julia Saubier
Binibini 22 April May Short
Binibini 26 Emma Tiglao
Binibini 27 Samantha Mae Bernardo
Binibini 33 Jessarie Dumaguing
Binibini 38 Vickie Marie Rushton
My next post about the subject should be uploaded after a string of personal appearances from the ladies (including the Press Presentation perhaps) where the basis for putting one ahead of the others should be relatively more definitive.
First official photos of the forty new #Binibinis right after their selection for Bb. Pilipinas 2019
Official numbers to follow.
Binibini Watch List 2019:
Bea Patricia Magtanong
She has been wooed to join Bb. Pilipinas for the longest time. Priority was given to her UP Diliman studies, though. She completed her undergraduate degree in Economics first before heading to UP College of Law.
And now that the #IskolarNgBayan is a Juris Doctor (JD) 2014-2018, Patch has finally decided to hold true to the commitment of doing national pageantry.
2019 is when she will shine the brightest – beauty, brains and personality all in one package.
Watch out for her filing. Very soon.
Bea Patricia “Patch” Magtanong
Now that Patch Magtanong is a successful Law graduate from UP Diliman, is she finally ready to go the pageant route?
She could join Miss World Philippines 2018 if reviews for the Bar exams won’t get in the way.
Otherwise, we could be seeing her signing up for Bb. Pilipinas 2019 when all her academic and licensure requirements will have already been fulfilled.
I am not always brimming with excitement when pushing for a showbiz personality to do big-league pageantry. But I make an exception for the beautiful Klea Pineda – the GMA Artist Center and GMA Network talent who is so full of potentials to join a national beauty pageant in 2019. She could even do so within the year with Miss World Philippines, but might be overruled by network commitments that include an upcoming teleserye and various public appearances nationwide.
She is young, tall (over 5’9”) and stunningly gorgeous!
Your thoughts, dear readers?
Is this the best year for Patch Magtanong to join?
I know that Patricia “Patch” Magtanong has been scouted by Aces & Queens long before she even became a PMAP (Professional Models Association of the Philippines
) model and UP Diliman Law student. Back then, she was this head-turning lass who still needed the polish and expertise of the beauty camp to level up her brimming potentials to become a national beauty queen. Could 2017 be the best year to field her in Bb. Pilipinas?
I’d say, why not? First-timers who win titles are not unusual with BPCI. And 22 year-old Patch – who stands 5’9″- could follow the trail of fellow ‘iskolars ng bayan‘ Shamcey Supsup-Lee and Zora Andam. What’s more, the combination of her PMAP-sanctioned modeling stints and the focused guidance of A&Q will help in bringing out the best in her presentation skills. Let’s not even add her good communication skills just yet because she can express her thoughts in both verbal and written equally well.
And quoting her nickname-sake Patch Adams: “Spread joy. Chase your wildest dreams.”
Will Patch become a Binibini for 2017?
Patch Magtanong and Julia Avila could be Aces & Queens’ entries for 2014.
Like a constantly winning basketball team, Aces & Queens has the deepest bench in terms of beautiful and talented team players. It’s like being one step ahead of the major league in terms of planning and recruiting.
For the next year or two, I bet Jonas Gaffud and his beauty camp will train two of their youngest beauties to the fullest. 5’8″ Patch Magtanong (a Business Economics student of UP Diliman) and 5’7.5″ Julia Avila (a De La Salle Junior scheduled to graduate in 2014) are the latest faces to formally join Mercator Artist and Model Management, Inc. ‘s long list of topnotch fashion, commercial and photographic models.
Patch projects a Shamcey Supsup-like aura in the pics above, while Julia embodies a perky and shapely teenager with her youthful vibe. This duo still has a long way to go, but with the promise they are showing as early as now, I see no reason not to be molded as future beauty queens. 😉
