This will be the first of many meals for the Bb. Pilipinas 2020 Official Candidates at Pizza Hut around New Frontier Theater. Photos were taken during their activities yesterday courtesy of Araneta City.
Taco Bell and Dairy Queen will alternate as their dining options. Hopefully, they won’t overeat the outlet’s calorie-rich food items on the menu.
Tomorrow afternoon, the Store Tour of the Bb. Pilipinas 2018 Official Candidates will happen in select establishments at Araneta Center starting at 2pm. Their first stop will be Pizza Hut and Dairy Queen at Ali Mall before heading straight to the Taco Bell at the Cyber Park beside Novotel.
This will be another chance to meet the ladies and – hopefully – get quick photo ops with them.
See you there!

The Bb. Pilipinas 2016 Official Candidates spent one day enjoying and resisting all the calorie-filled offerings of Pizza Hut, Dairy Queen and Taco Bell
It was food-tripping day for the Binibinis when they went through three (3) sponsor visits at Pizza Hut, Dairy Queen and Taco Bell – food chains all operated in the country by the Araneta Group of Companies.
Resistance is a must for all forty (40) of them because eating in all three food outlets can spell the big difference between maintaining a slim waistline and pigging out on all the pizzas, blizzards and burritos they can lay their pretty hands on. But a slice or a bite or half-an-inverted ice cream treat won’t hurt, right?
Anyways, Binibinis Maria Lina Prongoso and Jessica Gonzales also had their twin birthday celebrations and were warmly greeted by everyone.

What's a Bb. Pilipinas edition without the ladies giving their pitch for Pizza Hut?

And when Pizza Hut is around, can Dairy Queen be far behind?

Pizza Hut and Dairy Queen for Bb. Pilipinas 2015
Pizza Hut and Dairy Queen become stars for a day with the Bb. Pilipinas Official Candidates. Every year. And 2015 is no different.
Yesterday, right after gracing the Bb. Pilipinas 2015 photo exhibit, the Binibinis headed to the Pizza Hut and Dairy Queen outlets at Gateway Mall as part of their promotional pitch for the brands. The funny thing, of course, is that they can only try a spoonful or two each of a Blizzard, a few small bites out of a pizza slice and a forkful of pasta so as not to break their individual diets.
After all, cheat day won’t be until Sunday for most. 😉
Bianca, MJ and Yvethe were like big sisters to the kids
The kids sang and cheered for MJ
Prior to the send-off given in honor of Miss Universe Philippines 2014 MJ Lastimosa, a Charity Event was also held inside Balay as sponsored by Dairy Queen and Pizza Hut. With DQ endorsers MJ, Bb. Pilipinas International 2014 Bianca Guidotti and Bb. Pilipinas Supranational 2014 Yvethe Santiago, they led the Christmas Party for BPCI’s Adopted Community – the underprivileged kids of the Diocese of Novaliches. Games were played, face paintings were applied, balloons were everywhere, pizzas/blizzards/spaghetti/fried chicken were feasted upon and all the young ones simply had a fun time with their big sisters.
At the end of the activity, everyone sang and cheered for MJ. Photo ops followed and the kids took turns in hugging the ladies.
It was definitely a fun pre-event for the much awaited send-off that immediately followed. 😀
Miss Universe 2010 4th Runner-Up for World Food Programme
Venus with some kids who attended her Meet & Greet
If you think Miss World is the only gathering where you can find beauties with a purpose, think again.
Earlier in the day, Miss Universe 2010 4th Runner-Up Venus Raj was all smiles during her Meet & Greet held at Pizza Hut in SM Megamall.
The event was in connection with a new support mission to do her share in the wider world hunger relief efforts of the United Nations World Food Programme. She gamely answered all questions about her involvement in the same. And one can definitely see the passion in her eyes as she explained the importance of the advocacy.
The tie-up between Pizza Hut (with its new Cheesy Pockets flavor) and the World Food Programme will be endorsed by Venus
Just one of the many projects of Venus
Of course, one of the small perks of the activity was getting a taste of Pizza Hut’s yummy Cheesy Pockets flavor which Venus got to enjoy with all the media guests in attendance. And if that’s not enough, there’s a box of takeaway too. 🙂
It's happening this coming Wednesday, December 3
This coming Wednesday, a Meet-and-Greet with Miss Universe 2010 4th Runner-up Venus Raj will be conducted at Pizza Hut inside SM Megamall. The event coincides with her current support mission with World Food Programme and its advocacies for world hunger relief.
While invitational, the activity will help spread awareness of the latest project of Venus among attending media reps and guests. In hindsight, this could also signal her future plans of running for public office – something she has been mulling about for years.
And may I also add that our Venus is also active with the Teach for the Philippines Project where she helps in providing children with good education. (See photo below generously shared by my friend Francis Calubaquib)

Pizza Hut is almost synonymous to Bb. Pilipinas.
Dairy Queen and Bb. Pilipinas – they go together
Mexican food platters, anyone?
The Taco Bell mascot must be so thrilled to get a hug from Binibini 13 Kris Tiffany Janson.

In the Philippines, international pizza (Pizza Hut), ice cream (Dairy Queen) and Mexican fast-food (Taco Bell) chains are almost always associated with Bb. Pilipinas. And why not? The Aranetas own their franchises in the country and what better way to promote the same than to have the beautiful ladies competing in the nationals every year visiting one or two outlets of each.
I do love all four. Pizzas, ice cream, tacos and beautiful ladies. And for as long as the candidates are not required to stuff themselves with the calorie-rich dough, blizzards and nachos then everything’s good. 😉
