The mighty queens of Bb. Pilipinas are set to conquer the international stage as they banner Filipina excellence during the Miss Intercontinental, Miss Globe and Miss Grand International pageants happening this October.

“Pasabog Queen” Gabrielle Basiano is eyeing a back-to-back win for the Philippines as she prepares for the 50th Miss Intercontinental pageant in Sharm El Sheik, Egypt on October 14.

The Waray beauty hailing from Borongan, Eastern Samar aims to follow in the footsteps of reigning Miss Intercontinental 2021 Cinderella Faye Obenita.

“Nobody said it would be impossible. I am here to make history; giving me a sense of place,” Basiano said.

Basiano advocates for mental health and grief support, and she hopes to touch more lives as she strives to win the Miss Intercontinental crown this year.

Meanwhile Bb. Pilipinas Globe Chelsea Fernandez has her eyes on one thing and one thing only: winning the Miss Globe crown for the Philippines for the second straight year in a row in Tirana, Albania on October 15.

“My heart is so full, witnessing all your support, and for believing in me. Let’s all use social media to spread positivity. I am in a winning mindset. Now that I’ve been given the chance to wear a Philippine sash, ‘di ko sya sasayangin. A back-to-back win is hard but, with determination, it is possible,” said the Tacloban queen.

Fernandez recently won the Head-to-Head challenge where she competed against the top 20 finalists of the Miss Globe pageant this year.

She hopes to empower women and children through her advocacy through education.

“Education is important because it empowers the future. I wish that all Filipino children would have access to education so that they can pursue their aspirations in life,” she wrote on Instagram.

For Bb. Pilipinas Grand International Roberta Tamondong, this is the year for the Philippines to win the Miss Grand International Crown, as no Filipina has ever won the crown.

Tamondong expressed her gratitude for being chosen as the country’s representative for the said pageant happening on October 25.

“Every day is a day for us to learn, to learn from our mistakes and turn it into a lesson, for us to grow as a person,” said the beauty queen who hails from San Pablo, Laguna.

Tamondong is known to be an advocate for environmental awareness, and she will surely banner her mission as she jet off to Jakarta, Indonesia for the pageant’s Grand Coronation Night.
