The most beautiful night in the country is about to happen at sundown.
With 34 stunning Filipinas soaking in the limelight, the question as to who will shine and impress the crowd and judges the most will finally be decided at this evening’s Bb. Pilipinas Pageant.
Expect the 52nd Bb. Pilipinas to be another grand coronation night, with wonderful mix of candidates comprised of previous local pageant winners, working professionals, graduates from reputable schools, as well as showbiz celebrities.
Back in the competition this year are Pia Wurztbach and Hannah Ruth Sison, who both managed to be part of the Top 3 in past Bb. Pilipinas pageants. Wurztbach who bagged first-runner up in 2013 failed to enter the Top 5 in 2014, while Sison hopes to take home one of the five crowns after her strong second runner-up finish last year.
Meanwhile, rookies Ann Lorraine Colis, Alaiza Flor Malinao, Kylie Verzosa, and Teresita Ssen “Wynwyn” Marquez are all set to charm the judges to emerge triumphant at the coronation night. Marquez, daughter of actors-turned-politicos Joey Marquez and Alma Moreno, is also starting a career in showbiz. The pressure is on Marquez as well since her aunt, Miss International Melanie Marquez, who trained her for the pageant.
For sure, the entire nation will be watching tonight’s competition what with the Philippines’ winning streak in international beauty pageants in the last several years.
Actor Xian Lim and actress-host Toni Gonzaga will host the 52nd Bb. Pilipinas Coronation Night, which will be held at the Smart Araneta Coliseum. ABS-CBN will air a live telecast of the show at 9:30 p.m., while cable channel Lifestyle Network will air a replay on Monday, March 16 at 6:30 p.m.
