In celebration of the 62nd Araw ng Nabunturan, a competition of beauty, sophistication, and advocacy dubbed as Binibining Nabunturan 2019 exhilarated the Nabunturanons on the night of July 21, 2019 at the Assumption College of Nabunturan Gymnasium.
The pageant aims to choose a woman who will carry the responsibility and take the lead in promoting Nabunturan in the local, regional, and national setting.
She will also become the town’s Ambassadress of Goodwill and will represent the municipality in the Bulawan Festival in Compostela Valley.
Twelve (12) stunning ladies from the twenty-eight (28) barangays of the municipality flared and braved the final phase of the pageant.
With elegance, the binibinis hyped the enthusiasm in their Opening number and self-introduction.
Ms. Trina Marie Logronio, BBN 2018, also shared her enthusiasm and advice for the candidates,
“Ladies, you are all beautiful. You just need to be yourself… and be confident in who you are…”
The swimsuit competition then took place, and the strikingly hot binibinis tread the runway in their one-piece swimsuit by Pigarro Swim, a well-established international swim provider in the pageant scene.
As the ladies prepare for the next part, an audio-visual presentation of their individual advocacies for the environment, culture, and society took place.
In the long gown competition, the ladies sophisticatedly wore Jimlani Haute Couture’s very own design and took the crowds breath away.
Among the twelve ladies, top six were called and proceeded to the most-awaited part of the pageant, the question and answer portion.
The six candidates, namely Kate Ella Antonio, Christine Orfanel, Carla Torregosa, Antonette Ledafe Ayco, Sweetsell Rhose Nisnisan and Hashem Balaba imparted their wit and eloquence for the question and answer portion.
Possessing the qualities of an empowered woman, the crowned Binibining Nabunturan 2019 is Ms. Sweetsell Rhose Nisnisan.
