Binibining Pilipinas Crowns Six New Queens for 2017

Rachel Peters, a 25 year old event organizers, took home the top prize at this year's Binibining Pilipinas Pageant when she was crowned Miss Universe Philippines 2017. She stands 1.75m tall and will now start preparing to represent her country at the 66th Miss Universe Pageant that might take place early in 2018.

Hot favorite, Maria Angelica de Leon, was named Binibining Pilipinas International 2017 and will try to secure a back to back title for her country at the Miss International Pageant in Japan this October. De Leon is 23 years old and stands 1.73m tall.

Chanel Thomas (26) was crowned Miss Supranational Philippines 2016. She stands 1.75m tall and will represent the Philippines at Miss Supranational 2017 in Poland.

Elizabeth Clenci (26) is the new Miss Grand International Philippines. She stands 1.68m tall and will travel to Vietnam where she will represent her country at this year's international final.

24 year old Katarina Rodriguez was named Miss Intercontinental Philippines 2017. She stands 1.7m tall and is expected to represent the Philippines at the next Miss Intercontinental Pageant. 23 year old Nelda Ibe was named Miss Globe Philippines. She stands 1.75m tall and will represent her country at Miss Globe 2017.

Another hot favorite, Charmaine Elima, could not bag a crown, much to the shock of her supporters. She was named the first runner-up and will replace one of the winners should they be unable to compete internationally. Kristel Guelos finished as the second runner-up.

I am not too crazy about the results. The winner came as a surprise for me. I don't find her as strong as some of the last few winners, but I know she will be competitive. I like the International and Supranational winners best based on these photos.

  1. Of what I could watch of the Miss Binibining Philipinas 2017 competition I really can see why Rachel won Miss Philippines Universe 2017. She was simply amazing during the competition and was the clear winner at the end of the event. When Rachel answered her final question she reminded me of Pia with her interviewing skills. Rachel in my opinion has a great shot at bringing back the Philippines to the Top 3, if not winning it all!!!
