The Final Verdict: Predicting The Fate Of Binibining Pilipinas 2018 Finalists
Binibining Pilipinas 2018 is moving towards the grand finale in all glory. With only three days left for the crowning of the new Binibining Pilipinas, The Kaleidoscope of Pageantry after assessing all the web interviews, press presentation and photoshoots is here with its final opinion as to who should win the crowns of Binibining Pilipinas 2018 on March 18, 2018.
1. Miss Universe Philippines 2018- Catriona Gray
Hate it or take it, Catriona Gray is a huge threat for her co-contestants for the title of Miss Universe Philippines 2018, not only because she holds an international experience of making it to Top 5 finalists in a renowned pageant like Miss World, but also because she is being herself this time. With her grace, poise and wit, she has managed to garner a huge fan following. After being criticized by Mariel De Leon, she has gathered not just the support of her fans but has also shown grace by accepting the criticism constructively. She is truly determined to win it and I believe the time is hers!
2. Miss International Philippines 2018- Sigrid Flores
She is a performer and I wonder why is she not talked about as much as she should. Philippines has a great command at Miss International pageant and I see no less than a Top 5 finish if Sigrid would be the flag bearer of Philippines at the said pageant. She has an impressive stage presence and has remarkable flair in walk.
3. Miss Grand Philippines 2018- Karen Gallman
I see only two pageants for Karen Gallman, which is either Miss Universe or the mini version of Miss Universe, Miss Grand International. It is clearly between Catriona Gray or Karen Gallman when it comes to the race for Miss Universe Philippines crown. Karen Gallman not only possess polished stage presence but seems ready to continue the placement streak of Philippines at Miss Universe.
4. Miss Supranational Philippines 2018- Athisa Manalo
She could repeat the Mutya Datul feat at Miss Supranational if given a chance. She has a soft and subtle beauty, she radiates charm with her personality on stage.
5. Miss Intercontinental Philippines 2018- Michele Gumabao
Send this proficient lady to Miss Intercontinental and Philippines might end its dry spell at the said pageant. Michele has an exotic face and with her fierce yet poised body language she can pull off a great performance at an international platform.
6. Miss Globe Philippines 2018- Sandra Lemonon
Though I expected a lot more from this beauty, Sandra with passing time has not evolved as much as she should. However, she could give a good performance at Miss Globe 2018 and may even win the international title for the country for the second time.
7. Anjame Magbitang
The reason why Anjame is here at number six is because she has a huge potential to shine at an international arena, and I would not like to see her being wasted in minor pageants. I would like her to come next year with an even more refined aura and walk home with the title of Miss Universe Philippines or Miss International Philippines. I am in awe with her radiance and the way she presents herself on stage.
8. Jehza Mae Huelar
Although Jehza in these years has shown tremendous transformations yet she is not up to the mark to be adjudged as one of the crown clinchers. Though I see her making the cut to semi-finals.
9. Eva Psychee Patalinjug
Eva is a noteworthy candidate among the group of highly talented women vying for the title of Binibining Pilipinas 2018.
10. Vickie Marie Rushton
Vickie gave a memorable performance during the press presentation. She might be one of the semi-finalists this Sunday in the coronation gala.
11. Samantha Kaye Avestruz
She is all geared up to rock the finals and after seeing her well polished stage presence in the press presentation, Samantha seems to be walking on the right path.
12. Marie Sherry Ann Quintana Tormes
13. Patrizia Mariah Garcia
14. Angelica Mae Corbe
15. Edjelyn Joy Gamboa
16. Aya Abesamis
Binibining Pilipinas 2018 is the 55th edition of Binibining Pilipinas, which is slated to take place on March 18, 2018 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum, Quezon City, Philippines. During the conclusion of the pageant, Rachel Peters will crown her successor as the new Miss Universe Philippines, who will then represent Philippines at Miss Universe 2018 wherein Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters of South Africa will crown her successor as next Miss Universe.
