In the same report, Stella also spoke about what they were looking for in a Bb Pilipinas candidate: "We're looking for beautiful girls and hoping that the most beautiful girls will have the education, and know how to handle hard work. Because we make them learn a lot of things before we present them to the press in a year."
"We are looking for those girls who will endure the things they have to do," she added.
Pia is currently in New York, where she has been doing a series of media interviews. She is also scheduled for activities that the Miss Universe organization has lined up for her. – Rappler.com
