If there’s one thing 22 year-old Janine Tugonon learned from her stint in Bb. Pilipinas 2011, it’s the fact that finishing 1st Runner-Up added wonders to her life and over-all personality as she was ushered in to a world of glamour while getting trained alongside the reigning queens. Her already high level of confidence was further boosted, and this must have given her enough reasons to try her luck once more with Bb. Pilipinas 2012. Truth be told, she and fellow runner-up Mary Jean Lastimosa possess the upper hand in this year’s batch. They already know the updated ins and outs, the nitty gritty and the system of BPCI so it wasn’t hard adjusting to the daily grind of attending endless activities like photoshoots, personal appearances, fashion shows, sponsor/charity visits and what-have-you.
The 5’9″ (as per the candidates’ profiles) Janine has come a long way from her growing up years in Bataan to her stay in UST where she finished a degree in Pharmacy to joining Bb. Pilipinas (and placing fourth) last year up to the present where she is definitely eyeing one of the crowns on April 15.
Will Janine realize her dream of wearing a Bb. Pilipinas crown on her head? Or will Mary Jean Lastimosa grab one instead?
The heat is on as we approach the countdown to Bb. Pilipinas 2012! 😉
