Bb. Pilipinas as a pageant has still that air of sophistication and glamour. The days when it had the sole dominance of the Philippine pageant scene is long gone but the respect is still there. The year 2023 will be an interesting one for Bb. Pilipinas. The main winner will be sent to Miss International 2024.
