There will be tough competition for the Binibining Pilipinas 2019 pageant, and big shoes to fill! After all, last year’s Bb Pilipinas Universe Catriona Gray is the reigning Ms. Universe, Karen Galman won the country’s first-ever Miss Intercontinental crown and Ahtisa Manalo also came close and emerged first runner-up in Miss International.
There are 40 alluring ladies competing for the various titles in this year’s Bb. Pilipinas. All of them underwent the rigorous screening process conducted by the Binibining Pilipinas
Charities Inc. executive committee led by chairperson Mrs. Stella Marquez Araneta. The roster of finalists is composed of models, flight attendants, performers, students, and pageant veterans.
The ladies introduced themselves in the Press Presentation held today, April 4, at the poolsde area of the Novotel Manila Araneta Center. They will be vying for the six crowns at stake: Miss Universe Philippines, Binibining Pilipinas International, Binibining Pilipinas Intercontinental, Binibining Pilipinas Supranational, Binibining Pilipinas Globe and Binibining Pilipinas Grand International.
The 2019 Binibining Pilipinas Press Presentation is one of the most anticipated events in the BPCI calendar. Last Saturday, March 30, 17 of the 40 contestants slugged it out in the Talent Competition. On May 25, they will be going around Araneta Center, the Home of the Queens and recently declared as a Tourism District by the Quezon City Government, in the Grand Parade of Beauties, and on May 29, they will be sashaying in the stage in a glitzy Fashion Show at the New Frontier Theater. The pageant will culminate in the Grand Coronation Night at the Smart Araneta Coliseum on June 9.
