Herlene Budol is ecstatic over finishing as first runner up in this year’s Binibining Pilipinas pageant, and bringing home as well the most number of special awards.

The comedian-turned-beauty-queen spoke about her pageant experience in a series of posts on her Instagram page yesterday, Aug. 1. Budol also showed herself offering to a cross one of her bouquets from the coronation night as an expression of gratitude to God.


“‘Di ko man nasungkit ang korona, may magandang premyo naman at yan ang respeto sa akin bilang mahusay na Squammy at natatanging babae,” she said. “Naitaas ko ang respeto [sa] mga comedian [na] hindi lang [sila] basta komedyante, kundi tao [sila] na may angking ganda at may kakayahan [na] gawin ang gusto nila.”

(I may have not won the crown but I still got a beautiful prize and that is the respect I gained as a remarkable squammy and a unique woman. I have further promoted respect towards comedians, that they are not only comedians but people who possess beauty and ability to achieve their goals.)


Budol then reminded her fans to believe in their own abilities, drawing an example from her pageant success which she described as “unexpected.”

“KUNG KAYA KO, KAYA MO DIN. ‘Wag kang matakot na ipakita kung ano ang meron ka,” she stated.”Binibining hindi inaasahan because I know for my self that I am uniquely beautiful with a mission.”

(If I can do it, then you can do it, too. Do not be afraid to show what you got. [I am an] unexpected Binibini because I know [in myself] that I am uniquely beautiful with a mission.)

“Kahit first runner up narating ko kagabi sa patimpalak ng [Binibining Pilipinas], sobrang saya ko dahil yung masama at nakahelera na ako bilang isang Luminaries ng BPCI ay sobrang ligaya at priceless ang feelings,” she added, showing herself with the Binibining Pilipinas winners during the event.

(Although I finished as first runner up during last night’s Binibining Pilipinas [event], I am so happy because I got to be in the lineup of the luminaries of [Binibining Pilipinas Charities, Inc.]. It brings so much joy and a priceless feeling.)


Other titleholders crowned in this year’s pageant were Bb. Pilipinas International Nicole Borromeo, Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental Gabrielle Camille Basiano, Bb. Pilipinas Globe Chelsea Fernandez, Bb. Pilipinas Grand International Roberta Angela Tamondong, and Stacey Daniella Gabriel as second runner up. JB
