TIMOW’S BLOG expected the Binibining Pilipinas Grand Coronation Night last Sunday to knock GMA’s “Clash of the Titans” and others. According to Kantar Media, the latter grabbed the audience with 12.9 rating, up 0.6 from Dos’ Sunday’s Best.
Evidential reasons why the unexpected score for Channel 7 in the 10 o’clock pm limelight includes the delayed yet speedily-edited broadcast of Bb. Pilipinas and an unexpected heist from SM Mall of Asia. Social media, particularly Rappler, was heavily relied to know, in real time, the awards and results of the pageantry as Dos aired the aced, birthday special of Gandang Gabi Vice.
Nonetheless, the Philippines has now a representative for Miss Universe this year: Mary Jean Lastimosa, 25, from Mindanao. Lastimosa’s ambition to be a beauty queen follows a common maxim: “Try and try until you succeed.”
Now, we will wait for the rest of the nations to pick their representatives and hope that our very own delegate reach the consistent Top 5 for the fifth consecutive year.
