At the end of Sunday’s Binibini Finals Night, another Manalo took the stage with grace and aced the Q&A with Nichole Marie Manalo, who was crowned as Binibining Pilipinas Globe 2016, earning the right to represent the country in the Miss Globe pageant to be held later this year.
She also completes the troika of her sisters who were Binibini queens: Katherine Manalo (MWP 2002) and Bianca Manalo (BBP Universe 2009). Her aunt, Nenita Ramos was Bb. Pilipinas International 1968. Nichole in her interviews always mentions that her sisters had been supportive of her Binibini bid and the title she had was something for her dad who passed away last year.
Nichole has big shoes to fill with her predecessor, Ann Lorraine Colis being Miss Globe 2015. She may not have won the crown she’s aiming at, Nichole can’t help but be just grateful for what she has and make the most of the Bb. Pilipinas and Miss Globe experience which is to happen this year.
