Ariella Arida (24) beat 49 other beauties to be crowned the 50th Binibining Pilipinas at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Manila last night. The new Miss Universe Philippines stands 1.73m tall and will now start preparing to represent her country at the 62nd Miss Universe Pageant later this year. Arida was also awarded the Best in Swimsuit title on the final night.
The winner is really pretty. She wasn't one of my overwhelming favorites but I think she's really beautiful. I think she'll be top 10 at Miss Universe for sure. Not sure if she can do as well as the last three girls. The girl who is going to Miss International is quite an interesting choice. I'm not sure how she will do at that pageant. I think the Tourism crown is wasted on Cindy Miranda. She's stunning. The girl who is going to Supranational is gorgeous too. Good results. Pia Wurtzbach and Charmaine Elima should return for sure!
