2014 Bb Pilipinas: My Top Twenty Choices

This year's Bb Pilipinas batch is certainly one of the most competitive ever with half of the candidates crown- worthy

Here are the girls who just might make the first cut for next week's Grand Coronation Night of Bb. Pilipinas 2014:  

My choices are actually based on the fashion show videos, Press Presentation, the web interview (patterned after Miss USA and Miss Universe) candids & glam shots, media buzz, press releases, educational background (it matters to Madame Stella Marquez Araneta) and of course, my gut feel

So here are my Top Twenty from the 40 Official Candidates:

 # 17 Diana B. Arevalo, 25 years old  Calapan, Oriental Mindoro
#  4 Parul Shah, 25 years old, Pangasinan 
 # 5 Hanna Mariz D. Dela Guerra, 21 years old, Mandaluyong City
 # 7 Aiza Faeldonia, 24 years old, Sultan Kudarat
 # 8 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, 24 years old,  Cagayan de Oro
 # 11 Laura Victoria Lehmann, 20 years old Makati
 # 13 Kris Tiffany M. Janson,  24 years old Cebu City
 # 14 Emma Mary F. Tiglao, 19 years old Mabalacat, Pampanga
 # 15 Kimverlyn O. Suiza, 25 years old Marikina City
 # 18 Ellore Noelle Punzalan, 26 years old Las Pinas City

 # 19 Mae Liezel J. Ramos, 23 years old Camarines Sur
 # 21 Racquel D. Kabigting, 22 years old Mariveles, Bataan

 # 25 Mary Jean Lastimosa, 26 years old, North Cotabato
