Who do you think will be this year's top beauty queens? Click for more.


( A new set of Binibining Pilipinas beauty queens are set to be crowned on April 15 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum. In anticipation of the coronation night, we list the candidates who have gotten a lot of online buzz. We understand that there may be very violent reactions. We want all the 30 candidates to win, but then we all know there are only four titles up for grabs this year: Binibining Pilipinas-Universe, Binibining Pilipinas-International, and Binibining Pilipinas-Tourism. (Earlier reports said there would be a fourth title: Binibining Pilipinas-Supranational. However, this apparently was not the case.)



Unless indicated, all the photos bearing the Binibining Pilipinas watermark that appear in this feature are official photos that appear on the Binibining Pilipinas website and have been made available to the press for publicity purposes. The said Binibining Pilipinas watermarked photos were taken by Raymond Saldaña.

    Nicole Schmitz got my attention in the swimsuit round, she was very confident and knew how to strut like a model. When I heard her answer in the Q&A, I literally gave her an applause even though I was just watching it on TV.

    My votes are for Patricia Lae Ejercitado and Janine Tugonon - after all, another beautiful achievement for the alma mater of Charlene Gonzales and Alice Dixson. I also think Liezl Alcantara deserves a shot at the titles - just to prove that ethnic Pinays can represent us in international beauty contests just as well as those "genetically-advantaged" ones
