Despite not making it to the finals for this year’s Binibining Pilipinas Beauty Pageant, Cagayan de Oro’s Pia Wurtzbach did not go home empty handed.
Pia nabbed the Miss Philippine Airlines & She’s so JAG Award, two of the special awards given last night. After named as among the 15 semi-finalists, Pia’s pageant night was marred by a Tagalog question from Senator Ed “Sonny” Angara, which probably was not understood by some of the foreign judges. Nevertheless, last night’s main winner, Mary Jean Lastimosa of North Cotabato was competing in her 3rd Binibining Pilipinas pageant. She was second runner-up during the Binibining Pilipinas 2011 pageant won by Shamcey Supsup, and a semifinalist in the 2012 pageant won by Janine Tugonon. This was Pia’s 2nd try.
