Who will take home the the 6 titles on offer. You all have your favorites and now it's time for us to announce our favorites for this year's titles.
Global Beauties' Bb Pilipinas Universe 2018: #20 Catriona Gray
Well, it's a no-brainer for us. Not only because of her sheer determination and the guts of entering this competition as a former Miss World Philippines, but also because we believe that Catriona is the most solid competitor in the group this year. She has some work to do but this young woman is gorgeous, well-spoken and would be a formidable force on the Miss Universe stage - or any other pageant she competes in!
Global Beauties' Bb Pilipinas International: #19 Michele Gumabao
We have to admit that we overlooked her at first but we were mesmerized by her video interview. Not only is she incredibly charming, but she's also really natural and she oozes charisma. Some might say that her lack of pageant experience might be a concern but we are loving the fact that she comes across as totally fresh and fabulous.
Global Beauties' Bb Pilipinas Supranational: #11 Aya Abesamis
Aya is a strong competitor who has a huge following. She can burn up a stage and that will help her to perform very well at Miss Supranational. She's also charming and well-spoken. We have a feeling that she will be one to watch on the final night!
Global Beauties' Bb Pilipinas Grand International: #38 Karen Gallman
We picked her for this title for a reason. With that gorgeous face and her communication skills, she can bring home the Philippines' very first Miss Grand International title later this year. What she lacks in height, she makes up for in spark. We love her!
Global Beauties' Bb Pilipinas Intercontinental: #3 Muriel Orais
Muriel is one of the most photogenic of the group. She might be a bit on the short side but her beauty is undeniable. We definitely want to see her in the winners' circle!
Global Beauties' Bb Pilipinas Globe: #31 Jehza Huelar
Third time lucky for Jehza? She might finally be awarded a title, but she has not been as consistent as during her first two stints, so she might be overlooked again. We still feel that she deserves at least a minor title.
1st runner-up: #35 Sandra Lemonon
Sandra is a real beauty but do feel that she needs to work on her interview skills. We hope to see her back in the future, stronger and ready for one of the big titles.
2nd runner-up: #1 Vickie Rushton
Here's another young lady who seems to be loved by the fans. She has a gorgeous face and she could be a spoiler.
There they are - our choices for the crown. But as always, their fate lies in the hands of the real judges. May the best Binibinis win!
