SEXY Shamcey Supsup
Sunday, April 10, 2011
(UPDATE 2) General Santos City-born Shamcey Supsup, the 2010 architecture board topnotcher, was named the 2011 Binibining Pilipinas Universe during the pageant coronation night on Sunday, April 10 at the Araneta Coliseum.
A surprised yet ecstatic Shamcey, who also graduated magna cum laude from the University of the Philippines Diliman, will represent the country in the Miss Universe Pageant in Sao Paolo, Brazil.
"I still can't believe it. Parang panaginip. Kanina nung nag announce na sabi ko it's God's will. If it's for you, it's for you. You just have to believe it," Shamcey said in an interview after the pageant. "Whatever happens, it happens for a reason and God has a plan for every one of us... Ang dami talagang magaganda. Ang dami talagang magagaling. Feeling ko the judges had a hard time choosing the winner for the year."
Asked if she's now feeling the pressure of accomplishing the feat of Venus Raj, who won fourth runner up in the Miss Universe pageant in Las Vegas last year, Shamcey said:
"I'm not pressured at all kasi I believe I was here for a reason and whatever my destiny is, I'll do my best. I'm just gonna give it my all and I hope that whatever I'm gonna do there [Brazil] yun ang hinahanap nila at kung para talaga sa 'yo para talaga sa 'yo," Shamcey said.
Shamcey bested 39 other candidates in the pageant. Aside from winning the major title, she also won three special awards: Miss Cream Silk, Ambassador of Philippine Airlines, and Miss Talent.
Meanwhile, Iriga native Dianne Necio bagged the Binibining Pilipinas International title and Pasig City resident Isabella Manjon was crowned Binibining Pilipinas Tourism.
For Dianne, it is a dream come true after winning the first runner up plum last year.
"Last year, I joined and I ended up as first runner up and it was talagang pinagdasal ko. Kanina I'm not expecting anything. Sabi ko lang, 'Lord ibigay mo kung ano yung gusto mo ibigay.' So I'm just thankful na I will have the chance to compete in an international title... Talagang pag di mo tinigilan yung dream mo, maaabot mo siya and keep on praying," Dianne said in an interview.
Isabella, on the other hand, could not contain her joy in winning the Tourism crown.
"I'm so overwhelmed right now. Sobrang I feel blank. I'm so happy," she said.
Other winners are First Runner Up Janine Tugonon and Second Runner Up Mary Jean Lastimosa.
This year's special award winners are:
People's Choice: The Face of Binibining Pilipinas: Angelia Ong
Best in swimsuit: Queenirich Rehman
Best in long gown: Luzelle Felipe
Ms. Friendship: Samantha Purvor
Manila Bulletin Reader's Choice: Luzelle Felipe

The Beauty Pageant season of 2011 is going to heat up even more in just a month. Starting with the Bb. Pilipinas 2011 which will have its’ finals in early April, followed by the Miss Philippines-Earth before summer winds up. And then there is the newly put-up Miss World Philippines of Cory Quirino which should select its winner for Miss World around June or July. Mutya ng Pilipinas should also be in action at right about the same period. Thereafter, the beauty carnival moves to Sao Paolo, Brazil in August for Miss Universe 2011 – a big thing for this blog. The other international pageants will come in succession from September to December – Miss International 2011, Miss World 2011 and Miss Earth 2011. I’m not even mentioning the lesser known competitions like Miss Tourism International, Miss Supranational, Miss Global Teen and the like.
ELIMINATED CANDIDATES DUE TO NAKED PHOTOSHOOT
Grendel and Jenilyn (pictured above) both joined Philippines' Next Top Model in 2007 where Grendel was the winner while Jen was the 2nd Runner Up.
No official announcement yet from Binibining Pilipinas Charities, Inc. but according to a source of Mykiru, the disqualification was due to a naked photoshoot they did for the said modeling contest.
