The pageant will be held at Mall Of Asia Arena in the Philippines this coming January 30, 2017.
40 gorgeous ladies battle it out to be the next Binibining Pilipinas queens who will wear the Philippines sash on 6 international pageants. The pressure is high since we became again the powerhouse country in the world of beauty pageants last year. Out of the 40 ladies, one girl stood out among them and was crowned as Binibining Pilipinas 2016 Universe and she is no other than Maria Mika Maxine Medina.
Maxine Medina is an Interior Designer who graduated from the Philippine School of Interior Design and a PMAP or Professional Models Association of the Philippines member. She’s 25 years old and from Quezon City and stands at 5’7 1/4. She has also bagged a special award that night, which is Miss Philippine Airlines.

For many weeks the girls did their best to impress everyone. It’s not an easy task to do that. A lot of sacrifices were made just to reach that ultimate dream. But not all of them will get to be crowned this coming Sunday, April 17. After all the pre pageant activities, here are my top choices for Binibining Pilipinas 2016.
Nicole Cordoves – She’s beautiful and can express herself well and besides she’s a speech writer to the secretary of Department of Finance is enough to prove that. Her body structure is proportional which an advantage because she looks a lot taller with her actual height. When she enter a room you can’t avoid but to look at her. A “Dyosa” in the making. She’s perfect to represent the Philippines in Miss Universe pageant. She has that Miss Universe aura but she needs to work (a lot) on with her pasarela and stage presence. Definitely her weakness. Maybe a little bit of improvement on her personality and on her styling. She’s from Aces & Queens and I do believe they can work their magic on her and transform her. I mean A&Q track records are impressive so I have faith that they can do that with Nicole.
Maxine Medina – The most elegant and sophisticated candidate this year, that’s why she’s perfect for Miss International. I do believe that the Japanese would love her. I find her beauty and her walk expensive. She has that captivating aura that I love. Her oriental features is a plus. She need to tone her body and work on her personality a bit.
Dindi Pajares – Her pasarela and stage presence is her weapon. Great body, beautiful and I love her personality. For me she’s the one who’s enjoying (the most) every bit of the competition. She’s the type of a girl that would give a Latina a run for their money on the runway. A catwalk diva in short. She’s my choice for Miss Supranational.
Maria Gigante – Love her exotic look. A Pinay Barbie. Whenever this girl opens her mouth you would definitely listen to her. She’s the most articulate girl this year. I wouldn’t be surprised if she will ace her Q & A comes the finals night. With all of those qualities I want her to compete in Miss Intercontinental and get that first crown for the Philippines. She needs to improve her styling and tone her body.
Nichole Manalo – Her transformation was amazing. She’s a force to be reckoned with this year. Equipped with a beautiful face and a banging body, she’s definitely ready to compete abroad. If we want a back to back win in Miss Globe then she’s the right fit.
Kylie Verzosa – Beautiful and smart. You can feel that hunger to get a crown and I can feel that she will get one this year. She needs to relax a bit and enjoy the whole journey. Need to work on with her expressions, her smize is on point, but her smile sometimes a bit off. Fresh face, porcelain skin and with her elegance, I’m sure Nawat would love her. She’s perfect for Miss Grand International. She’s perfect to be that girl to give us the first crown for Grand International.
My runner ups for this year are Apriel Smith and Angelique De Leon. If there’s two more crowns at stake I would give it to them. These two would give the girls on my top list a run for their money. If these two will get a crown on Sunday I would be happy for them.
Completing my list for the Top 15 are Jehza Huelar, Paula Rich Bartolome, Joanna Eden, Anjellica Lopez, Angelica Alita, Jeslyn Santos, Ria Rabajante.
Bubbling up are Jennifer Hammond, Kimberle Penchon, Karen Ibasco, Jessica Gonzales and Jennyline Malpaya.
Dark horses this year are Paula Rich Bartolome and Angelica Alita. These two might pull a surprise on Sunday.
There you have it my Top Choices for Binibining Pilipinas 2016. Good luck ladies!
