Budol’s manager, Wilbert Tolentino, who was recently named national director of Miss Planet International Philippines, meanwhile, revealed that he now has the exclusive rights to pick the country’s candidate in the international pageant, and he has chosen Budol to compete in it. This he said in his YouTube vlog last Sunday, Aug. 28.
“Sana nandiyan tayo at suportahan natin si Herlene all throughout,” he said. (I hope you will be there and support Herlene all throughout.)
Tolentino added that Budol will speak in Filipino during her stint in Miss Planet International and the local organization will provide an interpreter when she competes in the pageant. It can be recalled that Budol also opted to use Filipino when she competed in Binibining Pilipinas.
Budol was hailed Binibining Pilipinas 2022 first runner-up during its coronation night last Aug. 1. The comedian-turned-beauty queen admitted that her success in the pageant was “unexpected,” and she hopes to inspire fans through her experience.
Tolentino earlier disclosed that Budol will continue her career in pageantry through international competitions and he had already asked for permission from the Binibining Pilipinas organization. /ra
