A lot of recycled beauties have made it to Binibining Pilipinas 2012's official candidates, including last year's runners-up Janine Tugonon and MJ Lastimosa (photo below).

It's great that MJ is back. I got disappointed when she didn't get a title last year, and hopefully she'll succeed this time.

In the past 3 years, three Bicolana beauties were consecutively crowned each year with a Binibining Pilipinas title: Melody Gersbach (RIP), Venus Raj and Diane Necio.

We'll see if the streak continues in Bb. Pilipinas 2012, as 4 of the 30 official candidates come from Bicol and they are:

Jaine Hidalgo from Naga City (Miss Philippines Earth 2011 candidate)

Elaine Kay Moll from Buhi, Camarines Sur (Miss World Philippines 2011 Top 10 semi-finalist)

Roxane Joy Jesalva from Irosin, Sorsogon (Miss Bicolandia 2011 titleholder).

and Anna Czarina Buenviaje from Malinao, Albay (1st Runner Up to Dianne Necio in Tabaco City's Miss Tabak 2009)

The Binibining Pilipinas 2012 Press Presentation will be held tomorrow, Feb. 13.
