Another Samantha is going to represent the country at the Miss Grand International pageant in Thailand.
Samantha Alexandra Panlilio from Cavite was crowned Binibining Pilipinas Grand International 2021 on Sunday, July 11 during the Binibining Pilipinas grand coronation night at the Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City.
Panlilio was crowned by Samantha Bernardo, Miss Grand International First Runner Up, who competed in March this year here in the kingdom.
During the Q and A portion, Panlilio was asked by fashion designer Rajo Laurel to name something she learned and did for the first time during the pandemic which she consider the most life changing of all.
Here’s the full transcript of Panlilio’s winning answer:
“The one thing that I did during the pandemic was actually cook food for frontliners, because I love to cook. I also have a food vlog that I do in my spare time. It was such a fulfilling and humbling experience, helping these people and helping contribute to the people who are actually at the front lines helping us Filipinos. I hope that what I did inspired other women too to also help out one another, because the only way we can survive, heal, and recover from this pandemic is if we help one another.”
The other five Binibini queens crowned with Panlilio are as follows:
- Binibining Pilipinas International 2021: Hannah Arnold, Masbate
- Binibining Pilipinas Intercontinental 2021: Cinderella Faye Obeñita, Cagayan de Oro, Misamis Oriental
- Binibining Pilipinas Globe 2021: Maureen Ann Montagne, Batangas
- 1st runner-up: Gabrielle Camille Basiano, Borongan, Eastern Samar
- 2nd runner-up: Meiji Cruz, Valenzuela City
Originally, the coronation was slated for April 26, 2020, but was postponed and rescheduled multiple times because of the pandemic. Out of the 40 official candidates of Binibining Pilipinas 2020, only 34 contenders remained in the competition.
Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray and Miss Grand International 1st runner-up Nicole Cordoves hosted the 57th edition of Binibining Pilipinas.
