The most exciting beauty pageant has come again. There seems truly nothing better and bigger than Bb Pilipinas pageant. For me who have been following the pageant since I was a kid, the pageant’s become more exciting every year. This has been evident in the turn out of people going to the pageant’s events such as the fashion show, talent showdown, parade of beauties, and ultimately during finals night.
Here are the top charmers during the parade of beauties where we saw the ladies up close and personal. This list in fact validates my thoughts of them before the parade.
Drilling further, in international pageants there has to be a profile of that winning package per pageant. It should not mean sending just anyone.
Yes, many say the Philippines’ strongest bet in Miss Universe is recent date is finally competing in this year’s much awaited quest. Welcome, Miss Universe Philippines Mary Jean Lastimosa, 26, from the province of North Cotabato.
We all know MJ’s story of perseverance, determination, passion for pageants, huge fan base, etc. The four-peat top five finish of this pageant loving Philippines since 2010 has truly placed this country in Miss Universe pageant success book having the most amazing fan base and support, having such competitive and likable delegates trending so well in Miss Universe pageant, amongsts the huge pageant fanatics world over, etc.
MJ’S 3rd entry to Bb Pilipinas clinching the plum Miss Universe Philippines crown was such a huge success story. Now, there’s just nothing that shall stop her to go to the Miss Universe pageant.
This is certainly going to be the most awaited pageant this year. Will Mary Jean Lastimosa be the 3rd Filipina Miss Universe? Let us see.
Been praying and wishing for a Miss Universe crown in this lifetime.

Truly this is the time of the year when pageant enthusiasts get craziest. It’s Bb Pilipinas coronation night happening tonight at the Smart Araneta Coliseum come 8pm.
The BBPilipinasGOLD beauties were truly accomplished and successful having won two of four international crowns. 2013 Miss International title was won by Bea Rose Santiago. 2013 Miss Supranational crown was won by Mutya Johanna Datul. Ara Arida placed 3rd runner up in the 2013 Miss Universe pageant while Cindy Miranda placed finalist in the 2013 Miss Tourism Queen international quest.
Kudos to the BbPilipinasGOLD beauties for such remarkable wins. You all made us very happy given your accomplishments.
The known Miss Universe Formula
Now that this pageant amorous Philippines has kind of come up with the so-called winning formula to making it to the Miss Universe runner up spot year after year given the high placements and recent successes of Venus Raj, 2010 4th RU, Shamcey Supsup, 2011 3rd RU, Janine Tugonon 2012 1st RU and Ara Arida, 2013 3rd RU. Now for sure we are up for the biggest challenge, which is to finally clinch the Miss Universe crown.
Recent trend has it that the crowned Miss Universe is someone who has an overall commercial appeal, a pretty good spokesperson, statuesque, has a versatile look, to quite an extent naive and less pageant patty, etc.
My previous blog was about the 8 Attributes of an Excellent miss universe Philippines. Here’s the link: https://carloocarloo.wordpress.com/2014/02/21/eight-attributes-of-an-excellent-miss-universe-philippines-by-carlo-tenerife/
Given the 40 candidates in the 51st Bb Pilipinas edition here are the twelve candidates I confidently believe are Miss Universe material and as such can also do very well in the other four international pageants. I set the standard using the Miss Universe system because this pageant is relatively easier to predict, has the clearest judging system, etc. In my Miss Universe prediction last year I was able to hit 12/15 and 4/5 after preliminary. You may refer to my blog entry about it. Here’s the link https://carloocarloo.wordpress.com/2013/11/09/will-miss-philippines-ara-arida-win-2013-miss-universe/
Given more training, media exposures, better wardrobe, the road to the Philippines’s 3rd Miss Universe crown would seem smooth and thus achievable.
Here are my TOP 12.
My final prediction basis is the cumulative effect of pageant exposures and a lot of gut-feel. I ranked the ladies by the title I believe would be perfect for them.
