What makes this batch of Binibining Pilipinas candidates the strongest to pick the winners from is that any one of the 40 official candidates, should she compete internationally, could give delegates from other countries a run for their money. So I find it heartbreaking, to say the least, because much as we’d like to send them all overseas, we can only choose the top five who, respectively, will represent our nation to Miss Universe 2014, Miss International 2014, Miss Tourism Queen International 2014, Miss Supranational 2014, and Miss Intercontinental 2014.

So watch the delayed telecast of the 2014 Binibining Pilipinas Coronation Night on Sunday, March 30 at 9:00 p.m. on ABS-CBN, to see for yourselves how competitive these hopefuls are. They’ve come at the ready to ace shoulder to shoulder with each other at every nook and cranny in front of the judges, after muscling the rigid screening process two months ago through this most awaited pageant night.

Quite apparently, I’ve been very vocal about my confidence in my friend, the 13th candidate Kris Tiffany Janson, because aside from the fact that she’s a fellow Cebuana, I can’t discount another fact that, somehow, I’ve been part of her journey, no matter how small. I mentored her when she joined (and won the crown of) Miss Cebu 2009, thanks to the Admodels managing director Dexter Alazas for the trust and honor.

With her determination geared towards walking away with any of the five crowns, for sure you will agree that this lovely Cebuana, under the tutelage of Manila’s Kagandahang Flores’s top brass, Rodgil Flores, is a force to reckon with.
