Meet the 40: The Binibining Pilipinas 2016 Candidates Revealed

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Forty bright and beautiful candidates vying for titles at this year’s Binibining Pilipinas 2016 pageant were presented to the media, the partners, and guests at Novotel Manila Araneta Center on Tuesday, March 29.

Stunning everyone in their swimsuits, the candidates charmed the illustrious guests with their confidence and stage presence. The ladies also let their personalities show at the photo call by the hotel’s pool side.

This year’s exciting roster consists of local pageant winners, graduates from top schools, artists, sports and fashion enthusiasts, and working professionals who excel in their respective fields. Representing various provinces in the country, the Top 40 candidates bested hundreds of aspirants that went through rigorous screenings in January.

It’s going to be a tough competition this year following the stellar successes of the reigning beauty queens. The historic win of Pia Wurtzbach at the Miss Universe 2015 pageant became a shining moment of glory for our country. The winning streak also continued with Anne Colis winning the Miss Globe 2015 title; as well as the impressive showing of Parul Shah, Miss Grand International 2015 3rd Runner-up; Christy McGarry, Miss Intercontinental 2015 1st Runner-up; Rogelie Catacutan, Miss Supranational 2015 semifinalist; and Janicel Lubina who made it into the Top 10 of the Miss International pageant, and was awarded Best Dresser.

With less than a month left before the finals, the ladies still have a busy schedule ahead. Watch them wow audiences as they headline the Binibining Pilipinas Fashion Show at the Kia Theatre on April 6. Supporters and pageant fans will also get a chance to see them when the finalists participate in the Parade of Beauties happening at the Araneta Center on April 9.

Finally, the best of the best will shine bright during the Grand Coronation at the Smart Araneta Coliseum on April 17, to be telecast LIVE on ABS-CBN.
