Two Lovely Cebuanas In Binibining Pilipinas 2015

Yes, we got two entries to Binibining Pilipinas 2015! Last year, Cebu's Delegates to National Pageants did very well. Let's say some names - Ms. Jamie Herrell who was crowned as Miss Earth Philippines 2014 and the international crown itself, Miss Earth 2014. How about Steffi Aberasturi who was named as Reyna ng Aliwan 2014? Do Kris Tiffany Janson ring a bell? She did awesome at Binibining Pilipinas 2014 and won a crown of Bb. Pilipinas 2014 Intercontinental and internationally as Miss Intercontinental 2014 2nd Runner Up. How about Eva Psychee Patalinjug? She took Mutya ng Pilipinas Asia Pacific International 2014 title. And to mention the Male side of beauty pageant, our very own Judah Cohen was titled as Mister Tourism International Philippines 2014 and will soon contest in the international scene for Mister Tourism International 2015 in Panama. Indeed, Cebuanas/Cebuanos did very well in this Niche - beauty pageant! Now, who's excited to know our National bets for Binibining Pilipinas 2015?

First, we have Namrata Neesha Lucero Murjani who is Half-Indian and Half-Filipina (cebuana) who was named Miss Cebu 2013 during her 20th birthday. Her unique skin tone and killer smile are the keys to her journey on Binibining Pilipinas 2015 pageant. She is under Aces & Queens group and her beauty will surely stand out. By the way, Neesha looks like Miss USA 2010 Rima Fakih, now that's a hint! XD

Then we have Rogelie Catacutan who recently won Miss Casino Filipino 2014. She was groomed by Jonas Borces from team Kagandahang Flores Cebu for the upcoming Binibining Pilipinas 2015. She's 5’8″ tall and with that versatile face, she might have a place for a crown on this year's BB. Pilipinas. She was part of Top 12 Finalist of Miss World Philippines 2011 in which the crown was won by Gwendolyn Ruais.
