Ariella Arida - Binibining Pilipinas Universe 2013: Her chances in Miss Universe 2013?

Ariella Arida is the newly-crowned Binibining Pilipinas Universe 2013 and will soon represent the Philippines in the Miss Universe 2013 pageant.

Ariella "Ara" Arida is 24 years old from Alaminos, Laguna. She's a BS Chemistry graduate from the University of the Philippines-Los Banos (UPLB), same university with Binibining Pilipinas Universe 1976 Elizabeth "Lizbeth" de Padua, who interestingly graduated with a BS Biology degree (Summa Cum Laude).

Considered as among the favorites for the crown, Ariella showed
overwhelming performances in the 3 rounds of competition during the Bb. Pilipinas 2013 Grand Coronation Night.
Ariella may not have the best body figure, but she was the one named Best in Swimsuit, which is actually not an award for having the best figure around, but on how a candidate carries and presents herself in a swimsuit.
Ariella looked regal (like a Greek goddess) in her white evening gown, and her witty response during the Question and Answer portion (Q&A)
could have been the ultimate deciding factor for the judges (and Madame Stella of course) to giver her the highest title, Miss Universe Philippines 2013.

She was asked, "What lesson in life can women teach
men?" And her answer: "One lesson in life that we, women, can teach men is being sensitive. Because we all know that men are more logical when it
comes to decisions. They usually are more rational and straightforward. Unlike we, women, we use our hearts and we tend to get emotional when we make our decisions. For me, sensitivity is
something that we, women, can teach to men."

Winning answer indeed!

Not new to national pageants, Ariella was Alaminos Laguna's representative in the Miss Philippines Earth 2012 pageant but didn't even make it as semi-finalist.

And just like Venus Raj, Shamcey Supsup and Janine Tugonon, the newly-crowned queen Arielle Arida is also from the Aces & Queens team, under Mama Jonas Gaffud.

The question now is: Will Ariella Arida match or surpass what Venus, Shamcey and Janine have achieved in Miss Universe? Will the crown be finally ours this time?
