Binibini Watch List 2019:
Is she finally re-joining this year? Recent developments have shown pageant followers that Win-Wyn is seriously considering another try in the nationals. There are big risks involved – considering that she already won Reina Hispanoamericana last 2017 and has starred in two movies where she played the leading lady. Is she really ready to take the second plunge? Is she eyeing just the Bb. Pilipinas Supranational title? Or is she looking at moving to the bigger crown out there?
If you ask me, I shall wait for her filing of application at BPCI first. If that happens, then the next blog about her should be clearer.
Reina Hispanoamericana 2017 Teresita Ssen “Winwyn” Marquez did star as the love interest of actor Vhong Navarro during last year’s “Unli Life”. But in the upcoming romantic movie from Regal Entertainment titled “Time And Again”, she plays the lead character with Enzo Pineda as her leading man. Such a long overdue for this dear beauty queen-friend of mine. So if you have plans to watch a local movie on February 20 (and one of the days after), let us support her in this one.
Do watch the trailer.
She originally planned to become a Bb. Pilipinas Queen first. But who would have thought that fate would bring her halfway around the world to Bolivia in South America as Reina Hispanoamericana Filipinas 2017 and eventually establish pageant history as the first Filipina (and first Asian) to win the crown of Reina Hispanoamericana 2017.
Teresita Ssen “Win-Wyn” Marquez grew up in the world of local showbusiness and politics. Her parents – actor/comedian/former City Mayor Joey Marquez and actress Alma Moreno – eventually rubbed off the excitement of being in front of the camera to this exotic beauty whose dancing prowess and love for acting were put to good use when she became a TV celebrity with GMA-7.
But the performer in Win-Wyn wanted more than just the klieg lights and endless hours on the set. So when she finally decided to go the pageant route, it was just a matter of time before she would win a national title.
Sta. Cruz, Bolivia was an entirely unique experience for our Reina. Along with brother Yeoj, she withstood the city’s tropical savanna climate where “surazos” or the cold winds from the Argentine pampas make the temperature drop considerably.
She aggressively continued with her mission and unleashed the fiery performer in her to outclass all the Latinas in her way to be crowned as the best last year.
Win-wyn is now classified as a movie actress as well. She has also become a leading lady of comedian Vhong Navarro in the movie “Unli Life” and has just finished another one where she plays the prime character opposite actor Enzo Pineda.
Tonight (or tomorrow morning in Manila), she will crown her Reina Hispanoamericana successor and will return to Manila soon after to face more showbiz commitments. I offer now a toast to the woman who has helped in making the pageant brand become more popular in this part of the world and elsewhere. You have already started building your legacy, although I know there will be more to the current purpose in life that you are planning for yourself to achieve. Politics in a few years or so, perhaps?
Salud, Teresita Ssen!
When I found out that Reina Hispanoamericana 2017 Teresita Ssen Marquez was going to be one of the judges during last night’s Binibining Cebu 2018 Finals at the Waterfront Hotel Cebu City, I immediately pulled her aside to give a message to Reina Hispanoamericana Filipinas 2018 Alyssa Muhlach Alvarez. You see, she missed the sendoff the other day due to a shooting schedule for her new film.

When the new pictorial of Reina Hispanoamericana 2017 landed in my inbox (thanks to my dear friend Voltaire Tayag of Rappler), I immediately thought of using the popular phrase “…a rose by any other name…” from William Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet as inspiration for this blog entry. This wonderful lady – who is always a joy to work with – decided to use Teresita as her public name right before, during and after her successful stint in Bolivia. But somehow, the showbiz affiliation is so strong that the popular nickname of “Win-Wyn” just could not be erased that easily from the minds of everyone.
Call her Teresita. Or call her Win-Wyn. She will always be our Reina Hispanoamericana 2017.
This latest photoshoot was a special one because our Queen herself had a say in every shot taken. The overall atmosphere, though, was fun and relaxed that everyone in the studio enjoyed doing all the layouts and did not mind the time at all.
Below are the other stills from the said shoot. Here are the credits first:

Just this weekend, your blogger flew to Tagbilaran, Bohol to judge the finals of Miss Bohol 2018 held at the Bohol Wisdom School Gymnasium. And aside from Ahtisa Manalo and Celeste Cortesi, our group included Reina Hispanoamericana 2017 Teresita Ssen Marquez who obliged us with an “ambush” interview during our countryside tour at Chocolate Hills in Carmen. She gamely told us what it will take to become the next Reina Hispanoamericana Filipinas and what are the important things to remember to her potential successor come October.
With Teresita as the benchmark, the challenge to duplicate her victory won’t be easy because we should send a brave and independent woman who is leaning towards being a performer and socially active representative.
Teresita also invited everyone to watch her first leading lady movie “Unli Life” which will start showing on August 15, as well as her latest teleserye on GMA-7 “Pamilya Roces” which will hit the small screen in the 3rd Quarter,
Here’s a brand-new victory for the Filipina in the international pageant stage. Miss Philippines Sophia Senoron was crowned the inaugural edition of Miss Multinational 2017/2018 during the finals of the pageant held at the Kingdom of Dreams in Gurugram, India. She defeated twelve other contenders for the title. First runner-up is Miss Germany, Saskia Kuban and 2nd Runner-up is Miss India, Shefali Sharma.
National Pageant Director Arnold Vegafria went to the host country to personally witness another achievement for the Philippines after he also flew to Bolivia for last Reina Hispanoamericana won by another one of his titleholders, Teresita Marquez.
Below is her crowning moment video.
