On Friday, 12th December a crowd of thousands at the Reem Riviera Beach Resort witnessed another colorful extravaganza as a new set of Ginoo at Binibining Turismo Filipinas winners were enthroned.
Fifteen-year old Amira Rose Santos, a junior high school student at Durrat Al Sharq International School was declared the new Binibining Turismo Filipinas 2014 while The Cheesecake Factory’s Aldrin Villadoz nabbed the Ginoong Turismo Filipinas 2014 title.
All of the eighteen final candidates were awesome as they paraded their unique ensembles for each of the segment competitions – Philippine festival costume, beach-chic attire, casual, and formal wear i.e. ‘Filipiniana’-themed evening gown for the binibinis and ‘Barong Tagalog’ for the ginoos.
As with Ginoo at Binibining Turismo Filipinas from the previous years, this year the spectacular Philippine festival costume competition showcased an amazing set of proudly Filipino designed costumes reflective of different local festivals in the Philippines. The candidates’ formal attire were all similarly original creations by select Filipino designers who are based locally. The designers have definitely taken their game up to the next level this year.
After the rounds of segment competitions were concluded this year’s batch of eighteen candidates was winnowed to the Final Top 11 – 5 Ginoo and 6 Binibini – who were quizzed about Philippine Tourism to test their intelligence, knowledge about Philippine Tourism, as well as their skills in the art of communicating with quick wit under pressure whilst maintaining regal composure.
From among this Top 11 the ultimate Ginoo at Binibining Turismo Filipinas winners were declared.
