It’s Saturday (January 25) or Monday (January 27) for the announcement of the lucky 30 (or 40) girls who will vie for the Binibining Pilipinas crowns.
The official candidates were supposed to be named yesterday, January 23, but the screening committee reportedly decided to postpone the announcement to give time to several girls to complete their requirements.
In the first place, the BCPI should not have accepted incomplete requirements. The deadline for submission has been extended (from Dec 30 to Jan 15) so that must’ve been long enough for the girls to complete their documents. Second, the BPCI should have also scrutinized the applications first before starting with the screenings.
But as pageant fans, we have no other choice but to wait for that “final” final screening and the announcement of the official candidates. After all, it is better to have a slow but sure process, instead of disqualifying (or worse, dethroning) a girl for any problems with her documents.
