Below are the #IAMBINIBINI introduction videos of the first half of the Bb. Pilipinas 2020 candidates. You will notice that there are still missing (or skipped) Binibinis. I am simply relying on what the organizers are uploading in their YouTube channel. Hence, the efforts of 5, 7, 11, 16 and 20 are still not here.

Since the official swimwear photos of the 40 Binibinis of Bb. Pilipinas 2020 will be presented in four groups of ten on different days, it makes things a little easier to judge the standouts in each. By the time we finish with the last batch, we may have already come up with a relatively more definitive Top 20. Of course, it is not entirely fair for whichever group of ten has far more outstanding ladies than the other. At any rate, let’s do it since this will be based solely on photos.
For Binibinis 1-10, it is obvious that the two most crown-worthy contenders are #Binibini4 Patrizia Garcia and #Binibini9 Patricia Denise Babista. As reader Flor would put it, these two beauties can easily grab crowns if it were only the first ten ladies remaining.
I would personally add #Binibini8 Meiji Cruz and #Binibini7 Shanon Tampon for their pageant maturity. They are both beautiful as well. My fifth spot would be for #Binibini10 Shaira Rona because – aside from being the tallest here, she has the budding potential to shine far better when it matters most. I would love to see #Binibini1 Samantha Panlilio because of her excellent communication skills and pedigree. But then again, height still has its advantage in pageantry.
Looking forward to Binibinis 11-20 now. This is the group where it will be tougher to separate the upper from the lower half.
Here are Binibinis 1-10 in their official swimwear photos for Bb. Pilipinas 2020. Release of the next group of ten will not automatically follow so you can appreciate this group first, as per BPCI’s social media team.

After the release of the new sets of official photos and yesterday’s Ever Bilena Beauty Tour by the Bb. Pilipinas 2020 candidates, normannorman.com is sharing with you his 2nd Round Picks that should set up things nicely for the Press Presentation that will happen on March 17. Take note that I arranged the #Binibinis according to the order of my preference and not by numbers anymore:
Samantha Bernardo of Palawan
Karen Laurrie Mendoza of Iloilo
Gabrielle Basiano of Borongan, Eastern Samar
Hannah Arnold of Masbate
Patrizia Garcia of Manila
Honey Cartasano of Rizal
Alexandra Mae Rosales of Laguna
Cindy Obeñita of CDO, Misamis Oriental
Vickie Marie Rushton of Negros Occidental
Carina G. Cariño of La Union
Hazel Ortiz of Pasig
Pat Babista of Quezon Province
Francesca Taruc of Angeles City, Pampanga
Danica Joy Acuña of Romblon
Maureen Montagne of Batangas
Alexandra Faith Garcia of Olongapo
Jash Dimaculangan of Camarines Sur
Samantha Alexandra Panlilio of Cavite
Shanon Tampon of Caloocan
Kimberly Anne Tiquestiques of Balagtas, Bulacan
As of today, the competition is still wide open for all the ladies. The leaderboard, though, is starting to take shape more clearly, such that if the Grand Coronation Night will happen later, the potential titleholders are Samantha Bernardo, Karen Laurrie Mendoza, Gabrielle Basiano, Hannah Arnold and Patrizia Garcia, with Honey Cartasano and Alexandra Mae Rosales as runners-up.
But with the remaining pre-pageant counting more than a month and a half to go, anything can still happen. Samantha Bernardo is looking like my only surefire winner at this point.
Congratulations to the winners of the #EverBilena Beauty Tour for Bb. Pilipinas 2020:
Miss Ever Bilena Samantha Bernardo
Miss Careline Hannah Arnold
Miss Blackwater Patrizia Garcia
Miss EB Advance Honey Cartasano
Will these four ladies get the extra boost in their respective bids this month and next?
Here are Binibinis from Laguna, CDO Misamis Oriental and Manila. Do you consider them underdogs in Bb. Pilipinas 2020?
