CEBU CITY, Philippines – As predicted by pageant bloggers and enthusiasts, San Fernando representative Beatrice Luigi Gomez was crowned the new Binibining Cebu by the reigning Miss Cebu 2018-19 Steffi Aberasturi early Tuesday morning, January 14, at the Pacific Grand Ballroom, Waterfront Cebu Hotel.
Here is a look back at Bea’s performance during the competition – from pre-pageant activities up until the coronation night.
Swimsuit and Long Gown Competition
As one of the first activities of the pageant, the Swimsuit and Long Gown competition served as the candidates’ first appearance onstage. It was also how the top 20 semifinalists were selected.
On January 7, 2020, the Binibining Cebu 2020 candidates visited victims of a huge fire that razed approximately 70 houses in Brgy. Duljo-Fatima the day after New Year’s Day.
Pictured below is Bea alongside her fellow candidates giving supplies and boosting the morale of the families who were left homeless after a fire broke out in their neighborhood.
A huge crowd favorite, Bea gave her supporters a lot of reasons to cheer for her when she won Best in Swimwear and two corporate awards, namely Miss Foton and Miss Body Worx Medical Spa.
Catriona Gray, Miss Universe 2018 serenaded all 54 candidates prior to presenting the titles to the new titleholders.
Congratulations, Bea and to the people of San Fernando, Cebu! – Rappler.com
