Congratulations to Nicole Borromeo, our newly crowned Miss International Philippines! Get to know 7 fun facts about our reigning queen.
During the 58th Binibining Pilipinas competition, four beauty queens were crowned with competing titles in international pageants. Chelsea Fernandez will be competing in Miss Globe, Gabrielle Basiano in Miss Intercontinental, Roberta Tamondong in Miss Grand International, and finally Nicole Borromeo for the Miss International competition. They competed against 40 hopefuls from all over the country for a chance to compete in an international pageant during the upcoming months. The most prestigious out of the four would have to be the Miss International crown, which is the winning pageant of Kylie Verzosa, Bea Santiago, and Melanie Marquez.
This year our Miss International bet is Nicole Borromeo who hails from the city of Cebu. We got to know her better on the catwalk and from the Q&A segment, but we still don’t know much about the young queen. We do know she’s a model, advocate, and has previous experience in pageantry. But, what are her interests and who is the girl who will compete for us in Miss International? Here are 7 fun facts about her.
