Binibining Pilipinas 2022 Grand Santacruzan standouts


Last March 14, the Grand Santacruzan finally returns to Araneta City, as Binibining Pilipinas begins its pre-event activities. It has been a few days since the procession but the hangover among fans still lingers!

This is because, for the first time since the start of the pandemic, pageants fans and even regular bystanders got to see the 40 official candidates in-person. Furthermore, also gracing the event were the reigning Bb. Pilipinas queens as well as Miss International 2005 Precious Lara Quigaman.

For the traditional Flores De Mayo procession, each Binibini was given a religious title. All of them looked lovely in costumes designed by our talented Filipino designers.

Seeing them up close and in the flesh, the candidates made quite a first impression, leaving the crowd stunned. However, here are six of them that managed to catch our eyes.

Bb. 1 (Cainta, Rizal) Stacey Gabriel

Starting off the procession of the candidates is the pretty Stacey Gabriel. As one of the new faces in the pageant scene, the former ‘Ang Probinsyano’ star looks like a doll!

Bb. 8 (Angono, Rizal) Nicole Budol

Undeniably THE crowd favorite from the procession, Nicole’s contagious personality charms the crowd. Unlike her name though, Nicole’s beauty ain’t ‘budol’.

Bb. 21 (Lipa City, Batangas) Gracia Elizabetta Mendoza

Gracia’s overall look would have to be one of the best. It wasn’t difficult to spot her during the procession because as stunning as she is, so does her costume!

Bb. 25 (Bataan) Anna Valencia Lakrini

As one of the faces of the competition, Anna might be portraying a Pasteur, but she can also pass as Mama Mary! That’s how immaculate she is.

Bb. 40 (San Pablo, Laguna) Roberta Tamondong

Roberta might be the last in the procession but that didn’t stop her from being a scene stealer. Her face and overall presence are divine.

With the coronation night still unannounced, it’s still everyone’s game at this point. As the competition progresses, it is only expected that the girls will do their best to win one of the crowns at stake. It might be too early too call but this year’s batch has already proven to be a strong one.
