|The 2013 Bb Pilipinas Gold Edition Queens|
I also considered how their types of beauty would appeal to a predominantly male judging panel
And here now are my Top Ten Choices:
Pia was last year’s 1st Runner Up but she gave up the title so that she could take another shot at one of the five Binibini9 crowns at stake
A combination of beauty, brains and brawn, Laura is also highly skilled in sports. She is part of the Philippine Team of Softball and dabbles in touch rugby and has competed during the Little League World Series of Softball in the US and in Europe during her younger years. Throughout all these physical activities, she endured broken arms and legs and 125 stitches in her body.
The lovely Cebuana is a Finance Analyst at a packaging company in Manila. Despite her serious job role, she is very fun-loving, free-spirited and adventurous. On her free time, she likes skim boarding, island hopping, travelling and trying out different cuisine.
Her main inspiration for joining the Bb Pilipinas Pageant is her father, who died due to a heart attack. Her father wanted to see her join a prestigious beauty pageant. Despite being away from her family and being away from her comfort zone, she strives to do her best in the competition.
One of her best memories was a trip she took with her family before her father passed away, and in the future, she dreams of travelling at least half of the world.
This is Diana’s third and final attempt in Bb Pilipinas. The first time was in 2009 where she finished as semifinalist. Her second try was back in 2011 where she duplicated her semifinalist finish in 2009
Marianne is a pageant newbie who was encouraged by friends and family to try her luck in BinibiningPilipinas. “I’ve had a lot of people telling me to join because of my height. I’ve thought about it many times, but I kept on putting it off first. But I realized that I’d be bettering myself not just in the pageant, but life in general. I realized I want this, I want to win one of the crowns,” she says.
She is trilingual; she fluently speaks Portuguese, English, and Filipino. She loves learning about different foreign cultures. She is also a humanitarian, and a cat lover.
Growing up in a war-torn province, she developed values of determination and courageousness, and this is something she brought to her personal life, her career and her journey to the BinibiningPilipinas crown.
BinibiningPilipinas’ MaricarBalagtas is her inspiration for joining the pageant again, because she joined three times before winning. Whenever she feels down, she looks up at her and thinks that if she was able to do it and so can she.
On her free time, she loves working out at the gym, travelling, modeling, dancing, and surfing social media websites.
Hannah is inclined to the arts and is into singing, music, arts and fashion. On her second time to join the pageant, Hannah is more determined than ever to take home the crown.
She wants to become a motivational speaker in the future and share how she became successful.
Among the proudest moments in her life was when she won Best Model of the World in Istanbul, Turkey last year.
