Binibining Pilipinas 2016- First Hotpicks

Binibining Pilipinas 2016 First Predictions

Binibining Pilipinas 2016 is moving towards finale with entire poise, magnificence and magnetism. The Binibining Pilipinas contestants are observed by the eyes of pageant enthusiasts all over the world, and why would they not be, for the reigning Miss Universe, Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, hails herself from the Pearl of Orient Seas, the Philippines.

This year 40 contestants are vying to fill in the shoes of Pia Wurtzbach, but amongst the cluster of stunning ladies there are few extremely wonderful contestants who managed to grasp my attention in the course of pageant. So let’s start with the analysis!

Dazzling at the first spot is Kylie Verzosa. Kylie Verzosa belongs to the same beauty pageant training camp as the reigning Miss Universe, Pia Wurtzbach and Philippines’ first Miss World, Megan Young. As the flag bearer of Aces and Queens, Kylie is certainly one of the strongest delegate, Philippines can send to Miss Universe, to claim its seventh consecutive luminous placement. Since, Aces and Queens knows the winning formulae and put Philippines at Miss Universe Top 5 map for four consecutive years after a long drought, hence Kylie too might carry forward the legacy ahead. Kylie has got sparkling oomph, but at the same time is radiantly supple. The 5’7” tall beauty with vital stats of 32- 25-32, is certainly one of the strongest candidate at the moment. Her mother was a participant in Binibining Pilipinas 1985, and perhaps her dream might get fulfilled through Kylie this year.

Shining at second place is Nichole Manalo. Nichole Manalo hails from Kagandahang Flores beauty pageant camp, which is quite famous for producing Miss International and Miss Earth titleholders for Philippines. Nichole Manalo would be a great choice for Miss International, and at a pageant which warmly appreciates Filipino beauties, Nichole cannot be ignored. A nurse by profession, Nichole has a beautiful face and pleasing aura. Nichole is not new to Bb. Pilipinas, and this time she looks completely prepared to hit the international platform. Her family members have already represented Philippines at international level, and it’s time for Nichole to carry forward their legacy.

Shimmering at third position is Maria Gigante. Maria has an extremely exotic beauty and being a strong pageant veteran, her chance to win one of the Bb. Pilipinas 2016 crown becomes almost certain. Maria Gigante has an incredibly charming smile, and a vava-voom body to die for.

Glittering at fourth spot is Angelique de Leon. Angelique has been dreaming of being a Binibining Pilipinas since 2014, and this time she has returned with a bang. Serene and tranquil aura of Angelique adds glitter to her very persona. She is mesmerizingly beautiful and is here to win it!

Snatching the sixth position is Apriel Smith. If it’s time for a change in conventions for Bb. Pilipinas, this is the right moment to crown a black beauty. Philippines after four consecutive Top 5 placements and one Top 10 placement at Miss Universe, finally won its third crown last year, and is currently under no pressure, since there is no denying the fact that Philippines is the new powerhouse of pageantry. Apriel is a media student and has commendable communication skills. She has won several titles, including Ms. Milo Little Olympics (2010), Ms. Cebu City Olympics (2012), Sinulog Festival Queen (2012), Ms. Mandaue third runner-up (2013) and Ms. Badian Tourism (2015). If sent to Miss Grand International, she can definitely be the first Asian to win the coveted crown.
