Herlene Budol Tries Her Luck In Miss Grand Philippines Pageant

Will Herlene Budol finally be able to snag the crown?

Herlene Budol continues her journey as a beauty queen as she competes in another national pageant. 

The social media star and comedienne, known to many as “Hipon Girl,” is part of the first batch of Miss Grand Philippines 2023 candidates.

Herlene also announced the good news in a series of Instagram posts, which included photos from her final screening last week.

Mga ka-squammy ko, congrats me at nakapasok ako sa first batch screening ng Miss Grand Philippines,” she said.

Herlene’s next journey

Herlene admitted that she has no preparations for Miss Grand Philippines because she’s busy doing her GMA-7 show “Magandang Dilag.” 

Nagte-taping kasi ako ng ‘Magandang Dilag,’ ipapalabas na siya sa June 26 kaya sobrang gipit po ako sa oras pero lalaban,” she added.

The Kapuso drama show is Herlene’s first title project which she described as “The beautiful revenge story na palaban ang bida.”

Before joining Miss Grand Philippines, Herlene finished first runner-up in Binibining Pilipinas 2022. 

Her manager signed her up to compete in Miss Planet International last year, but she eventually backed out due to “uncertainties by the organizers.”

Miss Grand Philippines will hold another screening for its second batch of official candidates on June 7.

Bb. Pilipinas previously held the Miss Grand International license in the country with Herlene’s batchmate, Roberta Tamondong, as its last representative.

Starting off as a model, Herlene gained popularity when she joined the “Wowowin” segment “Willie of Fortune.” Owing to her talent and funny jokes, Willie Revillame decided to make her a regular co-host of his show in 2019. Her co-hosting stint lasted for three years.

After this, she appeared on several Kapuso shows such as “Madrasta,” “Daddy’s Gurl,” and “False Positive,” among others.
