2015 has been one of the best years for Bb. Pilipinas, with their crowned queens making at least the Semifinals of their respective pageants and winning two of the 5 possible crowns that year through Ann Lorraine Colis (Miss Globe 2015) and Pia Wurtzbach (Miss Universe 2015).
This is probably the challenge back on the sleeves of Maria Mika Maxine Medina (Miss Universe Philippines) and Nichole Marie Manalo (Miss Globe Philippines) for 2016. While others are already pinning on the hopes of just sustaining a good finish, the girls are undoubtedly aiming for a back-to-back.
Maxine and Nichole are on the receiving end of bashing: with Maxine’s Q & A and the big transformation of Nichole Manalo, but your blogger believes that one, it can be polished (for Maxine), since Bb. Pilipinas and Aces and Queens would find ways to improve that and Nichole Manalo’s transformation was indeed something for the better. She looked different from the first time she competed in 2014, but the confidence level is x 2 of what she has then.
We all had different bets for the crowns but at the end of the day, when Miss Universe and Miss Globe 2016 starts, we would all place our support for Maxine and Nichole who at the end of the day would do the best for the Philippines.
