The Modelesque Girls of Binibining Pilipinas 2017

In pageants they say that height is might… and even the Czar de Belleza Osmel Sousa rumored to have said that he prefer tall women as there is no cosmetic surgery to fix short girls. For Filipinos, if a girl stands 5’5″ that is already considered quite tall as the average Filipina height falls at 4’11″*. So it is no wonder that we put a premium on girls who are tall in pageants.

This year, there are a number of girls who fall into that ‘taller than average‘ and they are positioned dead center in the numbering of the Binibining Pilipinas candidates. They are all 5’10” in height Rachel Peters, Christagale Borja and Jamaica Ambal. Coincidentally, they are also camp sisters under Kagandahang Flores. With their towering heights comes with the advantage of modelesque body proportions in swimsuits and would be able to carry any evening gown easily than their shorter counterparts. These girls are at an advantage in terms of swimsuits as their legs will be more emphasized with two piece swimsuits. Those with shorter legs would appear even shorter as two-piece bikinis would only go to a certain curve on the hips, unlike two piece swimsuits which can have cuts higher to create illusion of longer legs. Those aren’t going to be a problem with these three.

Rachel is the quintissential Sports Illustrated model, she has body-type that would not get lost with the likes of Paulina Vega and Gabriela Isler. Christa on the other hand is what gays would call as “thin slender paratrooper”, owing to the line in the cult classic movie “The Devil Wears Prada”… which coincidentally applies very much on Christa being one who works in the fashion industry. Then let’s not forget the mile long legs on the dusky Jamaica, which looks even longer when she strides on the ramp. But height is not the only thing that these three girls going for them, all three are quite conversant and have interesting faces. Not to mention that they all glide onstage. It would be interesting to see later on the finals night who will perform best in the competition…
