Joining a national pageant takes tremendous commitment. But joining the Binibining Pilipinas for three straight years is a testament of one’s loyalty and determination.
And that is what Samantha Bernardo is showing us for this past 3 years.
Ending up with the same 2nd runner up finish in the Binibining Pilipinas pageant for two consecutive years is nothing short of heart-breaking for one who is aiming for a title. More so with Samantha who has been eyeing a Binibining Pilipinas crown since 2018. She could have opted to join the Miss Universe Philippines pageant and yet she kept her loyalties to the BPCI. Because of that loyalty, she has endeared herself to pageant fans. That kind of loyalty is rare for girls who are more accustomed to pageant hopping if they aren’t getting the results that they wanted.
With her third try, she visibly is more relaxed nowadays. The ‘gigil factor’ has gone down and is replaced with a quiet confidence. But that doesn’t mean she’s slacking behind, it only shows how she is retooling her strategies so as not to put full efforts on areas that need not be given too much attention to. And to reserve her energies on areas that matters most. These days you see her with a more natural approach to her hair and makeup. In person she also exudes an aura of a woman who has no baggage going into the Binibini competition.

Fresh! Samantha Mae Bernardo with light make-up is a sight to behold, pictures don't do her justice in these instances. She was among the standouts last Feb 14. And she really is glowing these days. Perhaps we are to see a crown finally given to her come finals… . . . . . . #SashesandScripts #PageantBlogger #UltimatePageantBlog #PageantBlog #PageantBlogger #BbPilipinas #BinibiningPilipinas #BPCI #BBP #IamBinibini #BbPilipinas2020 #samanthabernardo #samber #iSAMkoronanayan
It is our belief that when a more relaxed and fun approach to pageants is employed, a pageant girl’s chances is higher. It is that resignation to enjoy the experience while giving it your best is the best way towards securing a victory, crown or no crown. That is what we are seeing and hope to see more from Samantha. And hopefully a Binibining Pilipinas crown by the end of the finals night in April 26th…
