Angelique Celine de Leon was part of Bb. Pilipinas 2014. Will she be officially yours in Bb. Pilipinas 2016?
Angelique Celine de Leon had her baptism of Bb. Pilipinas fire last 2014. In my opinion, she really had a grand time during the edition and can look back at the whole experience with a lot of fondness and good memories.
This year, the R-L Angel was initially spotted outside the Araneta Center office where the applications for Bb. Pilipinas 2016 are being received. And my hunch is that this Advertising Executive will be back for more of the competition, and one of the crowns I’m sure.
So if a paparazzi gets another stolen shot of someone who looks exactly like Angelique de Leon during the start of next week’s screenings, then you’ll know where she will be headed to next! 😉

Who will fly higher between Ria Rabajante and Renee Soraya Hassani?
Ria or Renee Soraya?
This is pretty much a no-brainer.
If anyone between Binibini 3 Ria Rabajante and Binibini 4 Renee Soraya Hassani will make the cut to the Top 10 or 15 on Finals Night, R-L Angels will have already achieved a 50% success rate in terms of placement. And in the event that at least one of them gets into the winning circle, that would be equivalent to a 50% success rate in terms of victory.
And this is not such a far-fetched idea I am playing with. Both ladies are beautiful and competitive enough to be noticed by the judges. It’s not like you can easily classify them as fillers. Ria and Soraya are bold contenders just as much as the next challenger waiting in the wings.
But if you had to choose, who deserves to be scored higher than the other? 🙂

Binibini 30 Patricia Lae Ejercitado
Without a doubt, there is pressure on Binibini 30 Patricia Lae Ejercitado to perform well in this, her 3rd and possibly last attempt at winning a Bb. Pilipinas crown. But even if the odds are stacked against her favor with the presence of strong repeaters and even stronger first-timers, she remains glowing. A duskier presence seems to suit her better, much like a dark-toned matte finish that brings out her exotic features to the max.
And those are the key words – ‘to the max’. Pat is not putting up with a good-enough game plan. She wants to score high and finish strong. Giving her 100% is an understatement. Alongside the transfer to a new camp, she is all set to harness double the effort and keep her eyes transfixed on the prize – just like a true Muay Thai fighter.
Check out her Truth and Dare minute video now. 😉

I have featured these Binibinis just recently, but not with their accompanying Truth and Dare videos. This 3-in-1 post will have theirs now.
Time for a 3-in-1 now.
These three Binibinis – Renee Soraya Hassani, Paula Rich Bartolome and Marvi Ann de Lima – have been recently featured in this blog. But now that their Truth and Dare videos are available, I have decided to share their turns in one post – good till the next blog at around lunchtime. Watch them and tell me if your perceptions of the trio have changed for the better. 😉

Ria Rabajante is the type of young woman we have always seen as poised, elegant and classy in ways and actions. Personally, I have never seen this beauty let loose with her actions and can always be credited for having the right blend of charm and femininity in everything she does publicly.
So imagine my surprise when this R-L Angel actually did a funny- looking (and sounding) dare in the video below. She was asked to mimic the sound of a chipmunk and check out the tune she actually chose to do it with.
You floored me there, Ria! 😀

Binibini 4 Renee Soraya Hassani for Bb. Pilipinas 2015
While Binibini 4 Renee Soraya Hassani made at least one screening attempt for Bb. Pilipinas in a previous year, this is the edition where she finally made the cut and will now officially vie for one of the five (5) crowns up for grabs come March 15. As one of the R-L Angels who qualified, she will team up with Ria Rabajante to try and score a first-ever major title for the camp.
After clinching First Runner-Up during last year’s Mr. and Miss Diversity Culture International competition held here in Manila, Soraya has gained sufficient confidence to come forward and show that she has what it takes to represent the country in a bigger beauty pageant abroad.
Will Renee Soraya come out on top?
Will Lady Luck stay put on Renee Soraya Hassani’s side till the finals on March 15?
We’ll see. For now, good luck in the search, girl! 😀
Binibini 3 Ria Rabajante for Bb. Pilipinas 2015
Ria is more prepared in her 2nd Bb. Pilipinas attempt
Back in 2013, Ria Rabajante made quite a splash when she took part in Bb. Pilipinas Gold. Tongues were wagging as to where this knockout dusky beauty came from and who was backing her up. Well, her trainers never changed. She is still the same R-L Angel pinned as Binibini 1 before. But just like the number she is wearing right now, the girl is 3x the sophisticated fierceness and 3x more prepared for the demands of the nationals. In fact, she took more than a year and a half before finally making the decision to enlist in Bb. Pilipinas 2015. Last year, she busied herself with work at Captured Dream Productions for the inaugural edition of Miss Teen Earth and Little Miss Earth Philippines where she did PR as well as being the big sister of all the young candidates.
But enough of that, for now. Ria is dead-set on performing better and stronger. And if she comes on as less daring in styling now, it could be due to a game plan to turn into a more timeless Filipina maiden who has what it takes to exude a favorable appeal in the global pageant circuit.

Could this be her year to fulfill the dream of winning a crown? Possibly. No, make that very possibly. 😉
