There are thirty (30) ladies competing for Miss Manila 2017 which will have its finals this coming June 24 at the PICC Plenary Hall. Some of the faces are distinctly familiar, like Maria Gail Tobes who was Binibini 3 during Bb. Pilipinas 2017 or Diana Mackey who took part in a previous edition of Miss Philippines Earth or Athena Catriz who was Miss Summer International Philippines a couple of years back or the previously-blogged Glenn Aeela Krishnan sister of Mutya ng Pilipinas Ganiel Krishnan and a deadringer for Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach.
Here now are the official swimsuit photos of the ladies. Tell me who your favorites are after:

Alyssa Joreen Reyes

Naelah Alshorbaji Almazik

The winners of the Sponsors’ Awards
Yesterday after lunch at the Ballroom of Diamond Hotel in Manila, Twenty three (two Fil-Aussies from Down Under failed to show up
) of the 25 Official Candidates of Slimmers World Miss Bikini Philippines 2017 were presented to members of the media in a launch that had them doing the preliminaries for Swimsuits, Creative Posing and Evening Gowns.
Everyone had their favorites as the managers of the different branches of the fitness center cheered for their representatives. And when five (5) winners of Sponsors’ Awards were announced, it’s as if the front-runners have been made known somehow. They are Natalie Lane, Stephanie Basilio, Jezza Mae Lim, Reyna Ruhen and Princess Bautista.

Let’s see who will reign victorious this Friday night, succeed last year’s Christine Opiaza and become the country’s representative to Top Model of the World 2017 to be held in Egypt later this year.
