The Philippine’s most prestigious and coveted beauty pageant, Binibining Pilipinas, will hold its coronation night on March 30 at the Smart Araneta Colisuem. The Filipino Channel (TFC) will air the coronation night starting at 12.35am UAE with a repeat on April 4 at 8.45am.
One of the early favourites is Dubai-born Filipino-Indian Parul Shah, who also joined the pageant last year and made it as one of the 15 finalists.
The Binibining Pilipinas determines the Philippine representatives to various international beauty pageants. Two reigning titlists went on to win international titles: Bea Rose Santiago (Miss International) and Mutya Johanna Datul (Miss Supranational 2013). Ariella Arida was crowned Miss Philippines Universe last year and went on to place third runner-up in the international pageant, while Joanna Cindy Miranda was one of the Miss Tourism Queen International 2013 finalists.
The Binibining Pilipinas Intercontinental title will also be awarded during the pageant.
Reigning Miss Universe Gabriela Isler of Venezuela will be part of the judging panel.
