Many of the hopefuls crossed over from other pageants, or were part of previous batches of Bb Pilipinas – with a couple coming close to a crown.
Here are some of the repeaters in this year’s pageant:
Pia was 1st runner-up in the Binibining Pilipinas 2013 pageant. She tried again in 2014, but only got into the top 15. This year, Pia said she is taking one last shot for one of the crowns because she does not want to regret anything.
Hannah was 2014 Binibining Pilipinas 2nd runner-up. She joined in 2013 but failed to win one of the crowns.
3. Christine Balaguer
UPDATE: Christine was removed from the Bb Pilipinas lineup of candidates this year, and replaced by Cannielle Faith Santos.
Christine joined Miss World Philippines 2014 and was part of the top 10.
4. Janicel Lubina
Janicel joined Miss World Philippines 2013 and was 1st princess to winner Megan Young, who won Miss World in Indonesia.
Anabel joined the 2014 Binibining Pilipinas competition but failed to make to the top 15.
Mae Liezel also joined Binibining Pilipinas 2014. She was part of the Top 15.
Kimverlyn is also a familiar face in the scene, competing in last year’s Binibini pageant. She previously joined Miss Philippines Earth in 2013, where she placed Miss Philippines Air.
8. Ina Dominica Guerrero
Ina joined Miss World Philippines 2014 and was part of the Top 13.
The others who made the cut are Toni Alyessa Hipolito (participant Bb. Pilipinas 2008 and 2010) Christi McGarry (joined Mutya ng Pilipinas 2010) Ria Rabajante (joined Bb. Pilipinas 2013) and Patricia Ejercitado ( joined Miss World Philippines 2013).
