The 40 official candidates of this year’s Binibining Pilipinas pageant will be presented to the members of the press, sponsors and other guests tomorrow, February 19 at the Luzon Ballroom of the Sofitel. Event is strictly invitational.
This year’s roster of candidates were trimmed down from over a hundred aspirants during a rigorous four-day screening last month. Some of them are local pageant winners, graduates from top schools, artists, working professionals, and models who underwent months of extensive training before they joined the pageant.
Pageant fans who wish to see the girls in the flesh will have the chance to catch them during the Fashion Show, which is set on March 6, and the Parade of Beauties on March 22. The Grand Coronation Night is on March 30 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum and will be aired live at ABS-CBN. Miss Universe 2013 Maria Gabriela Isler of Venezuela and Russian popstar Emin will grace the finals night.
