Miss Bicolandia 2014 candidates include a former Pinoy Big Brother housemate

Miss Bicolandia 2014 has 20 official candidates, one of them is an ex-housemate of Pinoy Big Brother (PBB).

She is candidate #9 Casey Anne Austria representing Legazpi City.

In 2011, Casey was one of the housemates of PBB Unlimited, the 4th season of the ABS-CBN reality show.

It's actually her 2nd time already to join Miss Bicolandia. She was already a candidate during the 2011 pageant (before she joined PBB later that year) and finished 4th Runner-Up. The winner then was Roxane Joy Jesalva who later competed in Binibining Pilipinas
2012, but was unplaced.

Will Casey finally win the title this year?

One of the smallest candidates, but among the prettiest, Casey is competing against a much stronger batch this year. Some of the candidates already competed in national pageants, while others have already won other pageants in Bicol.

Among them are two former Miss Philippines Earth 2012 contestants: #7
Meryl Angeline King from Daet, Camarines Norte and #12 Ina Dominica Guerrero from Daraga, Albay. Both were "thank you" girls in the said pageant, but King, a registered nurse, went on to become Miss Tourism World Philippines 2012 later that year and represented the country in

Casey also competed in Miss Philippines Earth last year, but was also a clapper.

It would be surprising if these 3 won't place high in Ms. Bicolandia 2014, the grand coronation night of which is already happening tomorrow, Sep. 11, at the Jesse M. Robredo Coliseum in Naga City with Bela Padilla and Enzo Pineda as hosts, and Dion Ignacio as performer.

However, having an experience in a national pageant isn't always a guarantee in winning Ms. Bicolandia.

Last year, Miss World Philippines 2011 candidate Mae Liezel Ramos joined Ms. Bicolandia but finished only in the Top 10 ('coz she didn't do well during the Top 10 Q&A). Earlier this year, she luckily made it as an official candidate of Bb. Pilipinas 2014 and was among the Top 15 semi-finalists.

A look at the other Miss Bicolandia 2014 candidates would just make it harder to imagine how tight the competition is. I've seen them all twice already during their public appearances and mostly are crown-worthy.

Candidate #1 Jian Cayla Salazar from Guinobatan, Albay is probably the most active in pageants of them all. Imagine, Ms. Bicolandia is already her 5th pageant this 2014 alone. Earlier this year, she's Miss Mandaluyong 1st Runner Up, Ms. Kaogma 2nd Runner Up, Ms. Las Piñas Waterlily and Ms. NCAA 2014. Last year, she's also Miss Ibalong and Miss Silka Philippines 1st Runner Up. Whew! (Ikaw na girl!)

Candidate #11 Marvi Ann De Lima from Iriga City, a registered nurse, is Miss Daragang Magayon Tourism 2014, Ms. Camarines Sur 2014, Ms. Iriga 2014 and Mutya ng Ibalong 2014 2nd Runner Up.

The other candidates are:

#2 Kyla Danise Santos from Naga City
#3 Lailanie Marie Murillo from San Fernando, Camarines Sur
#4 Micca Jan Villalobos from Naga City
#5 Marian Grace Yang from Daet, Camarines Norte
#6 Christine Arnedo from Legazpi City
#8 Sarah Christine Bona from Iriga City
#10 Princess Camu from Tiwi, Albay (Miss Kaogma 2014 1st Runner Up)
#13 Marie Sheery Ann Tormes from Bula, Cam. Sur (Ms. Bicolandia 2013 Top 10 finalist)
#14 Esther Tapia from Concepcion Grande, Naga City
#15 Claudine San Antonio from Daet, Camarines Norte
#16 Jonalyn Pan from Peñafrancia, Naga City
#17 Ruby Ann Morales from Concepcion Pequeña, Naga City
#18 Ira Mae Moraño from San Felipe, Naga City
#19 Louise Pauline Christelle Resoles from Naga City (Miss Rinconada 2014)
#20 Denise Ann Ysabelle Medenilla from Canaman, Camarines Sur

The biggest pageant in the region, Ms. Bicolandia had previous candidates who eventually won titles in Bb. Pilipinas. Among them are
Venus Raj, Dianne Necio, Yvethe Marie Santiago and even the late Melody Gersbach. - Mykiru.ph
