It looks like you can help your favorite Binibining Pilipinas contestant make her dreams come true. Yes, according to PhilStarLife.com, the pageant is launching a fan vote system, where fans can vote for their favorite candidates via the newly launched Binibining Pilipinas mobile app.
The contestant with the highest number of votes on the mobile app will secure a ‘wild card’ slot in the Binibining Pilipinas Semifinals, which is slated for July 11. A registered user of the Binibining Pilipinas app can only vote once a day, so you better your vote count. Voting ends on the midnight of July 10, so you have a few days to help your favorite beauty get that coveted spot.
To put things into perspective, this is the first time the Binibining Pilipinas pageant is utilizing an online fan vote system that could get the contestant into the competition’s semifinals.
Since 2017, the Binibining Pilipinas pageant narrows down its candidates to a Top 25 during the coronation night, before announcing a Top 15 and, ultimately, its final set of winners.
However, a lot of changes are to be made in this year’s pageant. Aside from the ‘wild card’ slot, it is rumoured that the pageant will do away with the Top 25 and Top 15 cuts, and will instead announce a Top 12 after the introduction of contestants.
There are four prestigious titles up for grabs this year in the Binibining Pilipinas pageant, namely: Binibining Pilipinas International, Binibining Pilipinas Grand International, Binibining Pilipinas Intercontinental, and Binibining Pilipinas Globe.
Knowing how wildly popular beauty pageants are in the country, it should be expected that a lot of Pinoys worldwide will support their favorite girls. It’s only a matter of time until new queens will be crowned, and the new ‘wild card’ slot just made the competition much more interesting.
