Winning Streak for 2015 Binibining Pilipinas Queens
This year has seen a streak of victorious Binibining Pilipinas queens. In October, Ann Colis won the title Miss Globe 2015 in competition held in Canada. In the same month, Parul Shah placed 3rd Runner-up at the Miss Grand International pageant in Thailand. More sashes and crowns were snagged towards the end of the year. On December 18, Christi McGarry was Miss Intercontinental 1st Runner-up in a competition held in Germany.
Capping off the pageant season is the recent Miss Universe 2015 victory of Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach in Las Vegas, USA. This earns the Philippines its third title in the much celebrated international beauty pageant.
“How great it is to wake up every day knowing that we have now our new Miss Universe 2015, from the Philippines. Congratulations, Pia. And thank you for fulfilling every Filipino's dream,” says her Binibining Pilipinas sister Ann.
Christi also sends her love to the newly-crowned queen. “To my sister Pia, words cannot express how proud and happy I am for you, for us, and for our success. You did it, and I never doubted you could! Sending all the love to the most beautiful girl in the universe -- my friend, my sister, and my inspiration.”
Truly, hard work and perseverance have been Pia’s currency to success. Only on her third attempt at Binibini was she able to win the Miss Universe Philippines title. When she finally did, she studied, trained and prepared well for the international pageant, stopping at nothing to make sure she bags the most coveted crown. With Pia’s outstanding performance in the coronation night, she was able to show the world that she is confidently beautiful with a heart.
