I have already posted my own quintet of favorites for this year's Binibining Pilipinas search, and now I am revealing another group of ladies who are just too 'good' not to be noticed. These are the set of candidates who have all the 'makings' of a beauty queen and who obviously got the 'goods' to compete internationally. The possibilities of cracking through the winning circle are high especially if the odds will be on their favor come coronation night. So without further ado, let's get to know them one by one.
Kimberle Penchon - She's certainly one of the first time Binibini aspirants of the batch but it seems to me that Kimberle knows pretty well how the game works. Actually Kim got already enlisted as one of the candidates last year, but decided to back out even before the day one of the competition started when she was offered with a much more promising opportunity with Beauche International. Will she nab a much greater opportunity now that she decided to pursue her Binibini journey?
Angelica Alita - Her set of gorgeous eyes reminds me of Miss Universe 2013 Third Runner-Up Ariella 'Ara' Arida. Both are actually not the top favorites to win the most prestigious crown, however Ariella managed to slip through the magic circle and snatched the Miss Universe Philippines crown from the hyped front runners. Now the question is, will she do an Ara Arida victory on the grand coronation night? Well, as far as the pageant is concern, it is still everyone's ball game and the possibilities for Angelica to win the top plum isn't entirely impossible at all.
Apriel Smith - An exotic stunner from Cebu and a protege from the Kagandahang Flores beauty camp. Will Apriel make the Cebuanos proud on that fateful night of this year's Binibini edition? The last time that a dark-skinned candidate won the MUP crown was still in 2010 when Maria Venus Raj victoriously clinched the rights to represent the Philippines in Miss Universe and eventually broke the country's decade-drought when she placed Fourth Runner-Up. Will Apriel do a Venus Raj as well?
Maria Gigante - She is another fierce Cebuana from the Queen City of the South and undeniably one of the strongest entrants of the Kagandahang Flores camp. Suffice it to say, Maria got a striking resemblance to Miss Universe 2014 Top 10 Finalist Mary Jean 'MJ' Lastimosa of North Cotabato. Will she share the same fate with MJ in clinching the highest honors on the finale?
Maxine Medina - Who wouldn't be tempted to take a second look of this tall Binibini stunner? A beauty framed with a classic Asian feature and modelesque form, Maxine is definitely one of the leading candidates to watch out for this year.
