Christine Opiaza will vie for Miss Bikini International 2016 in Shenzhen, China
This coming December 20, Miss Bikini International 2016
will be hosted in Shenzhen, China. And the Philippine representative is Christine Opiaza of Olongapo who won the right to vie in the international competition when she was crowned Slimmers World Miss Bikini Philippines 2016 last May 20.
Christine, or CJ for short, has been dutifully preparing for the challenge and she is excited to visit the cold climes of Shenzhen to fight for a title that can hopefully add another feather in the cap for the Philippines in pageantry.

Good luck in Miss Bikini International 2016, CJ! Give it your best as I know that you have it in you to do well. 🙂

When the candidates of Slimmers World Miss Bikini Philippines 2016 were presented to the Press five days before the finals last May 20, it was very clear to your blogger that #24 was going to win the competition. Perhaps with a good fight from a few of the other contenders, but Christine Opiaza of Zambales will still prevail in the end. And she did.

Christine has the face, the body, the height and the personality in one package. She is clearly unmissable. And when she actually copped Best in Creative Posing and Best Personality during the Coronation Night at the Newport Performing Arts Thester of Resorts World Manila, there were no surprise calls from anyone. She had it in the bag since the launch.
And she brims with personality. Proof is the award she got for having loads of it. (Photo credit: Joy Arguil)
So for one full year, Christine will serve her contract. And after that, I’m pretty sure she will go farther in pageantry. With the experience of this win, it won’t be a long wait till we get to see her in another contest come 2017. 😉

Just as I predicted, Christine Opiaza took it all the way to the top and never held back. She was crowned Slimmers World Miss Bikini Philippines 2016 at the end of the pageant finale inside Newport Performing Arts Theater inside Resorts World Manila. She succeeded 2015’s Tim Alsowyed. 1st Runner Up is Regine Anillo, while Ivy Tapic (another predicted Top 3 finisher
) took 2nd Runner-Up.
Opiaza also won Special Awards such as Best in Creative Posing and Miss Personality by Spectrum Med.
Congratulations to the three winners!

Tonight is the night for Slimmers World Miss Bikini Philippines 2016!
I selected eight (8) sexy stunners to give the Miss Bikini Philippines 2016 title a good fight
This is judgment night for Slimmers World Miss Bikini Philippines 2016 at the Newport Performing Arts Theater of Resorts World Manila. And instead of picking a Top 10 or Top 12 among the thirty (30) competitors for the crown (currently being held by MPE2016 contestant Ma. Fatima “Tim” Alsowyed
), I opted to share just eight (8) who – in my opinion – stood out during the Pre-Pageant where the Swimsuit, Creative Posing and Evening Gown segments were judged.
I remain solid with my Top 3 choices – Christine Opiaza, Ivy Tapic and Clarise Perez – since there will be one big winner and two runners-up after all.

Of course, spoilers are always waiting in the wings to steal the thunder from the front-runners. I am choosing Geri Camargo (a standout 16 year-old
), Sollaire Rallos (the openly gay candidate among the ladies
) and Rufaida Babudin (who has really improved a lot compared to her MWP2012 days

Whoever wins tonight, congratulations in advance! You will be in for a whole new world of health, fitness and glam! 😀
Casey Ann Austria for Miss Bikini Philippines 2016
Slimmers World Miss Bikini Philippines 2016 Candidate 01 is the familiar Casey Ann Austria whom we have seen during Miss World Philippines 2015, Miss Philippines Earth 2013 and Miss Mandaluyong 2016.
Just recently, she made an announcement on Facebook that this will be her one last beauty pageant and has decided to hang up the platform heels for good. She is retiring, in short.
During the Evening Gown Competition of Mis Bikini Philippines 2016
Read her post:
“To those who are messaging me to join other beauty pageants, I appreciate your trust and kindness but I am sorry to inform you that I wouldn’t be joining any other pageant anymore, I feel like I am too old already for this kind of industry, I have proven myself enough since 2008 and being Miss Universe is now a wishful thinking as politics in National pageants arise, I don’t want to waste time on something that is not long term, let us give the younger generations a chance to prove what they’ve got also. Thank you for all your support and I am retiring this year, my last competition will be this july as I am moving on to the next chapter of my life, private and quiet. Thanks for sending me your best wishes.”
I wish Casey the best of luck in all her future endeavors. Of course, winning Miss Bikini Philippines could extend her pageant career just so that she can serve the commitment. But at the end of the day, she really wants to restore the treasured privacy in her personal life. 🙂

Remember this tall lady from the tribe of Molbog in Palawan who was considered a potential – albeit diamond in the rough – contender during Miss World Philippines 2012 (won by Queenierich Rehman
)? She was only 20 years-old then. And while most every pageant watcher saw her as taking the whole ride just for the experience, there were also those who tagged her as possibly the next big thing to step out of her province after Janicel Lubina.
Close to four years have passed and it was only now that the new version of Rufaida Babudin emerged from out of relative anonymity. As a Slimmers World Miss Bikini Philippines 2016 candidate, she has definitely trimmed down and with more confidence onstage. The speaking voice still needs more coaching to enable her to put across statements clearly. Other than that, you can see her seriousness to do better this time around.

Will Rufaida Babudin finally get what she is aiming for? I hope so. 🙂
Tim Alsowyed for Dumaguete City in MPE2016 (Photo credit: Joy Arguil)
It’s not easy filling in the shoes of Ma. Fatima “Tim” Alsowyed nowadays. First, she is still the reigning Slimmers World Miss Bikini Philippines, at least until she crowns her successor this coming Friday night at the Newport Performing Arts Theater of Resorts World Manila. Secondly, she is Miss Dumaguete City in Miss Philippines Earth 2016. And with the two beauty contests overlapping in pre-pageant activities, attending to both makes it hard for her to split the time. There will be overlaps, for sure.
The conflicting schedules won’t linger that long anyways. Starting Saturday, she can focus solely on MPE2016. She just needs to fix commitments for the next few days and she’s all set for a more bearable daily routine.
Good thing Tim is one of the favorites. If everything happens as planned, then she could be one of the first to actually transition from one beauty title to the next with only an interval of twenty (20) days in between.
Good luck, Ms. Alsowyed! 😉
There are a few familiar names and faces in this year’s batch of Official Candidates for Slimmers World Miss Bikini Philippines. I can identify #1 Casey Austria and (a much improved) #22 Rufaida Babudin who took part in Miss World Philippines 2015 and 2012, respectively. There is also #11 Mary Rose Cajayon who competed for Miss Tourism World Philippines back in 2013.
Most of the other joiners are either newbies or relatively fresh-faced ladies I have not seen in past national contests yet. Be that as it may, check them out and give the support for Internet’s Most Popular. You can visit the Slimmers World FB page and select your choice.
