By the time the clock struck 5 P.M. on January 6, almost 100 girls had stopped by Araneta Coliseum to apply as candidates for the Binibining Pilipinas 2018 paegant. Suffice to say that we'll be seeing plenty of new faces if they make it past the screening rounds. But based on earlier reports, a few familiar ones have already been spotted. Among them were volleybelle Michele Gumabao, actress Vickie Rushton, and model Catriona Gray.
If these girls are lucky, they may be crowned either Binibining Pilipinas Universe, Binibining Pilipinas International, Binibining Pilipinas Grand International, Binibining Pilipinas Supranational, Binibining Pilipinas Intercontinental, or Binibining Pilipinas Globe. Whoever wins will get to represent our country and compete in their title's corresponding international competitions.
Regardless of the outcome, this year's roster faces some serious competition. Let's get to know the three they're up against!
