Tonight, Bb. Pilipinas Pageant, the countryâ€™s longest- running and most prestigious beauty search will conclude its 2016 edition with the crowning of its newest batch of titleholders. Six titles are at stake: Miss Universe Philippines, Bb. Pilipinas- International, Bb. Pilipinas- Supranational, Bb. Pilipinas- Intercontinental, Bb. Pilipinas- Globe and Bb. Pilipinas- Grand International.
Last year, I was able to correctly predict four of the five titleholders with my fifth choice getting the 1st Runner up position. The only one I didnâ€™t foresee as a winner was Rogelie Catacutan. This year, itâ€™s going to be a battle royale for the Miss Universe- Philippines crown, which is the most coveted among the titles.
I have picked the following ladies as the most likely to be battling it out tonight for the top titles. They are # 29 Maxine Medina, # 11Nicole Cordoves, # 28 Nichole Manalo # 31 Kylie Verzosa, # 27 Dindi Pajares, # 23 Angela Valdez. Whoever will be picked as Pia Wurtzbachâ€™s successor will definitely have big shoes to fill in.
Pia will be joined tonight at the Araneta Coliseum by Miss USA 2015 Olivia Jordan and Piaâ€™s Miss U buddies Miss Malaysia & Miss Myanmar. ABS CBN will telecast the pageant at 10 p.m.
