Almost all the 30 Official Candidates of Bb. Pilipinas 2012 leveled up quite nicely during their Press Presentation last Monday. They all did their homework and it showed in how they projected themselves onstage. This despite the fact that the runway used at Genting Club of Resorts World Manila was not the most easy to negotiate given its extreme closeness to the audience.
In random order, here then are the 10 girls I particularly liked. I honestly gave high marks to more than half of the batch, but had to filter the same for the purpose of this post. No final choices here whatsoever, just focusing on extra positive impressions that they left lingering in my head, so without further ado….
Nicole is always up on her toes...very alert and never caught slacking whenever onstage. Her forward moves and turn-arounds are always expertly executed.
Liezl may tend to be a tad outdated with her turns and poses, but it only goes to show that her raw potentials can be easily molded into what is 'in' and now.
Jill may not be the most consistent in prior appearances, but last Monday, she showed the real stuff she is made of...and I liked what I saw.
True, she needs to lose a little more weight, but Karen is such a doll onstage. She knows how to flirt and strut her wares the right way. Love, love, love her!
For some, it would be an oversell if i say that MJ was just a cut above the rest last Monday. But she is. It's like she successfully completed a master class in catwalk and projection. She simply knows how to effortlessly stand out.
There is a regal effect in Gina Joy's tempered simplicity when gliding towards centerstage. 'Fierce' may not be the word to describe her style, but 'Classy' fits her to a T.
Golda was a pleasant surprise. She was just 'golden' whenever onstage. Never mind if she is one of the shortest. She makes excellent use of her precious seconds in the spotlight, even outside.
Patricia's confidence was really sky-high, especially after finding out that she is one of the favorites among many pageant sites. The girl is oozing with sexiness.
Despite her relative youth, Katrina must be an excellent learner because it shows on how she was able to present herself well. There are still important angles to be more aware of, but whenever in motion, she delivers.
You've got to hand it to Elaine. Being the tallest in the group, she now knows how to use her height advantage to full effect. Her long limbs and freshly-made face combine to make a more queenly impact that can only get better in time.
There you go. I originally planned to put in 15 candidates above, but settled with just 10 to make my assessments more exciting. Some eyebrows may be raised with one or two of my choices, but that’s how I see it. Inspite of the event being just a pre-preliminary, each one of them should know by now that every single appearance is crucial, and that hereon, the stakes will only get higher. 😉
