What are the Binibining Pilipinas candidates doing outside of the pageantry?
Outside of the glitz and glamor of being a beauty queen, Binibining Pilipinas applicants are pretty busy with interesting day jobs – and incredible dreams.
In an exclusive interview with GMA News Online, some 34 Binbinis shared fun facts about themselves, including what they do apart from being a beauty queen or who they wish to be.
Candidate no. 6 Shannon Tampon from Caloocan said that she is often seen on construction sites because she is … mechanical contractor.
Candidate no. 18 Ma. Ruth Erika Quin from Nueva Ecija is a clinical veterinarian and would treat dogs, cats and other exotic animals including snakes, rodents and rabbits.
Candidate no. 17 Masbate’s Hannah Arnold proudly shared that she is a sleep scientist who monitors “people sleeping to make sure they are breathing and I can help give them treatment.”
Candidate no. 29 Alexandra Faith Garcia of Olongapo City is an entrepreneur and triathlete.
Meanwhile, candidate no. 8 Patricia Denise Babista from Quezon Province shared her ambition to become a banker and “I hope that one day I will be a charter financial analyst and next door I will be a racing driver”.
The big coronation event will take place on July 11 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum. It was hosted by Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray and Miss Grand International 2016 1st runner-up Nicol Cordoves.
This year’s competition will crown four queens with the titles of Binibining Pilipinas International, Binibining Pilipinas Grand International, Binibining Pilipinas Intercontinental and Binibining Pilipinas Globe.
Binibining Pilipinas 2021 Grand Coronation Night will be broadcast live on YouTube.
