Yhesley Cabanos as PBQA Season 2 winner
John dela Vega has a new pageant franchise, and it’s Miss Bikini Universe that will have its 2015 finals at the Grand Hyatt Hotel Shenzhen in Shenzhen, China on November 16, 2015.
The girl chosen to represent the Philippines in the said beauty competition is 18 year-old Yhesley Cardano Cabanos who we can remember as the winner of Pinay Beauty Queen Academy Season 2 (where she was trained by Nina Ricci Alagao). She is also a product of Kagandahang Flores, the camp which initially fielded her in Mutya ng Pilipinas 2014 (see her twin photos in the featured image above).
This young lass is determined to show her best qualities and to do the country proud in the said competition. She will leave on November 5 for Shenzhen.
Good luck to you, Yhesley! 😉
Get ready for Yhesley Cabanos, Shenzhen!

Today is the scheduled screening of Bicol Region applicants for Pinay Beauty Queen Academy Season 2. Registration (and actual screening
) will start at 1 pm till 5pm.
And at 6pm, a show will commence with the participation of some of the show’s resident Beauty Queens (like Shamcey Supsup-Lee & Ali Forbes) and regulars like Wilma Doesnt, plus homegrown talents from the host province.

Starting next month, the provincial screenings for Pinay Beauty Queen Academy Season 2
will start with stops in Batangas (Nasugbu
) and the Bicol Region (Albay
). Schedules for Visayas, Mindanao and Northern Luzon will follow afterwards before the important final phases of selecting the ultimate qualifiers who will make the Top 40 from where the eventual winner – Pinay Beauty Queen Academy-Miss Grand International 2015
– will come from.
Host Ali Forbes will lead the screening team, along with the four (4) new mentors – 2013 Miss International Bea Rose Santiago, 2011 Miss Universe 3rd Runner-Up Shamcey Supsup-Lee, 2004 Miss Earth Priscilla Meirelles and 2000 Bb. Pilipinas Universe Nina Ricci Alagao.
So, beautiful ladies, if you’re up to the challenge, check out their Facebook page for regular updates on screening schedules in your areas.
Pinay Beauty Queen Academy Season 2 will start airing on June 21, 2015 (Saturdays & Sundays, 5:30pm-6:00pm) over GMA News TV. 😉
A more interesting set of mentors (left to right): Miss International 2013 Bea Rose Santiago, Miss Universe 2011 3rd Runner-Up Shamcey Supsup-Lee, Miss Earth 2004 Priscilla Meirelles and Bb. Pilipinas Universe 2000 Nina Ricci Alagao.
Ali Forbes is still the host
Pinay Beauty Queen Academy is definitely upping the ante for its 2nd Season. With its eventual winner becoming the country’s official representative to Miss Grand International 2015 in Bangkok, Thailand, the show has introduced four (4) new mentors and they are Miss International 2013 Bea Rose Santiago, Miss Earth 2004 Priscilla Meirelles, Miss Universe 2011 3rd Runner-Up Shamcey Supsup-Lee and Bb. Pilipinas Universe 2000 Nina Ricci Alagao. The four will be joined by Wilma Doesnt who will act as the Training Supervisor of the contestants.
This early, I have a feeling that the reality beauty search will attract more potential candidates (read: higher quality of joiners) to complete the list of forty (40) they are planning to begin with.

Ali Forbes continues on as the show’s host, just as Season 2 has stayed put with GMA News TV as the airing network.
Watch out for more about the show’s regional screenings in the coming weeks ahead!
Season 2 will start screening very soon!
Season 2 of the Reality Pageant search on TV will have its winner sent to MGI2015
Miss Grand Philippines – the title – will no longer exist this year. In its place, there will be a Pinay Beauty Queen Grand International 2015 who will be the successor of last year’s Kimberly Karlsson. And the winner of Season 2 of the reality TV pageant search will be going to Bangkok, Thailand come October.
Since John dela Vega and Ali Forbes will continue to be involved in the same, there’s really no issue at all when it comes to calling the winner as such and not Miss Grand Philippines 2015. It’s a pity the winner of Season 1 can no longer lay claim to this new development. Joana Angelica Romero would have been one happy lady.
Alas, the rightful rep will still be determined by May 2015.
Watch out for this on GMA News TV! 😉
The Season 2 winner will represent the Philippines in Miss Grand International 2015
P.S. I wonder how MGI owner Nawatt Itsaragrisil feels about this. If oyu ask me, he should be happy with the televised search.
