With the Bb. Pilipinas 2018 Talent Competition scheduled to take place at the Farmers Plaza Activity Area this coming Saturday – February 10 – I thought it would be appropriate to take a look-back at last year’s version where the more memorable presentations were placed in a video grid above. Included are the opera number of Mariel de Leon, the ballet performance of Arienne Calingo, the Taekwondo exhibition of Ma. Camille Manalo, the interpretative dance of Gillian Colcol and the bass guitar skills of Elizabeth Clenci.
Now if you want to get relatively up close and personal with this year’s Binibinis, then the above-mentioned upcoming event will be your best bet for some sort of a limited meet-and-greet.
I was told that around fifteen or so ladies will display their talents that are mostly in the song, dance and song-and-dance formats, with one doing a rhythmic gymnastics exhibition.
See you there!

This coming Saturday, all roads will lead to the Ali Mall Activity Area for the Bb. Pilipinas 2017 Talent Competition
This coming Saturday, April 8, thirteen (13) Binibinis will showcase their talents in singing, dancing, speed painting, and martial arts, among others. And it will all happen right at the Ali Mall Activity Area starting at 3pm.
In the meantime, here are archived photos from last year’s Talent Competition to align this feature with the Throwback Thursday theme. If you will recall, Vina Openiano (first photo below among the performing Binibinis from 2016)

Last Saturday, the talent competition of Binibining Pilipinas 2010 was held at the newly-upgraded Ali Mall in Cubao, Quezon City. Seven of the 24 official candidates participated in the special pre-pageant competition, the winner of which will be formally announced during the coronation night on March 6 at the Araneta Coliseum. Particular stand-outs in their respective presentations were Selena Antonio who performed a gymnatic-inspired number, Rachel Ann Bustamante with her innovative dance number that combined jive, tango and belly dancing, the baton-twirling Dianne Necio and Krissa Mae Kleiner in a song-and-dance piece combined with martial arts.
Here are the videos of the talent competition. You will also see all 24 ladies parading in front of the audience. Many thanks to ecurb of OPMB Worldwide for these clips.
