What I Think of Pia's Miss Universe - Philippines Victory

Third time’s the charm for Pia Alonzo Wurztbach. Will her victory set a new trend in future editions of Bb. Pilipinas? Personally, I don’t think so. Call it luck, timing or destiny. She did everything right during the crucial pageant finals. 

From a sexy swimsuit presentation to an iconic evening gown presentation that she capped with a sultry then sweet facial expression. Her spontaneous and sincere answer regarding how we behave with our social media accounts and reminding everyone to think before we click gave her a thunderous applause from the audience.

Janicel winning both the Best in Swimsuit & Best in Gown awards already gave her a commanding lead going to the final round. Your Blogger thinks that it was Janicel who topped the whole shebang considering that the Q & A is a mere 10% of the criteria only and Pia was next in rank by the narrowest of margins. However, since Pia is overaged already for Miss International, the judges had to make the big switch. All’s well that end’s well. We now have a good chance of placing high in both the Miss Universe & Miss International Pageants with these two outstanding beauties.

Janicel is runaway winner of Best in Swimsuit

What I do not understand however is why Christi McGarry was still given the Bb Intercontinental crown considering that she had competed in the same international pageant back in 2010 and even made the Top 15 and was awarded the Miss Asia & Pacific Continental Beauty award. Was it simply an oversight from the Binibini organizers? Were the judges informed about this while they were deliberating about the final rankings? BPCI had already released a statement early today that Christi will keep her crown and will still compete in the same pageant.

With regards Anne Lorraine Colis’ Bb Tourism crown, I feel that they’re just wasting this stunning morena beauty. Will she suffer the same fate that befell Parul Shah and Kat Dimaranan who ended up not competing in any international pageants?  The best solution would have been to award the Bb Tourism crown to Hannah Sison and give Anne Lorraine the 1st Runner Up sash so she can improve and join again in next year’s Bb pageant.


My Final Picks as posted in the Bohol Chronicle

The five aforementioned ladies also happened to be my final picks for the 2015 Bb Pilipinas Pageant. I even posted my final choices in my Roving Eye column in the lifestyle section of the Bohol Chronicle the morning before the pageant. Miss Rogelie Catacutan who eventually clinched the Bb Supranational crown was a most pleasant surprise especially during the Q & A
