Binibining Pilipinas 2016: Top Picks

This year’s edition of Binibining Pilipinas is specially highlighted by the fact that a reigning Miss Universe from the Philippines will be crowning her successor and the exciting pressure of picking another girl who will attempt to clinch a back-to-back victory is most expectedly at stake.  When Gloria Diaz was proclaimed Miss Universe, a Philippine first in 1969, a Filipina-American from Bacolod was being touted to win any international pageant she would join in – except the organizers thought it would be highly unlikely to score a double victory at the Miss Universe pageant. Aurora Pijuan was instead sent to the Miss International pageant in Japan and just as they predicted, she won the country’s second crown – and fourth major international beauty title. When Misses Venezuela in 2008 and 2009 historically managed to campaign an unprecedented consecutive wins for their country, many pageant experts started to think that such feat is now possible, even if the last time such sweet occurrence is already 7 years ago.

The international beauty contest community has concentrated eyes on the Philippine delegates since 2010, and the culmination of Pia Wurtzbach’s victory as the 3rd Filipina Miss Universe seems to be not the last.

Picking the rightful representatives for the Miss Universe, Miss International, and other major pageants is not only in the critical visions of the telecast judges alone. The Bb Pilipinas organization actually has the final say whose head fits what title regardless of the overall performance scores in the finals. It is also particularly interesting to note that they seemingly have special spots for contestants who have joined, and placed more than twice. However, it could be very well attributed to the fact that returning candidates are more equipped to win each time they reappear in the contest. This is why we have special spots for  9 candidates this year, although it can be noted that none of them finished as runners-up in the past. This is Ria Rabajante’s, Binibini 39, 3rd attempt to win a crown – a record which Wurtzbach achieved last year. Rabajante is fierce and exotic, but as our pageant expertise surmises, we honestly cannot put her in there, although we wish her all the luck in the universe this time.  The case of Nicole Manalo, who on her second attempt, has to prove that being pedigreed from a generation of Miss Philippines winners (Nini Ramos, Katherine Anne Manalo, Bianca Manalo) she is on to something triumphant this time.
