It's no secret that Filipinos go crazy over the three Bs: boxing, basketball, and beauty queens.
The Philippines is currently holding an exemplary track record with 15 victories at the "Big Four" international pageants: Miss Universe, Miss World, Miss International, and Miss Earth.
The pageant season has already started in the country with the Binibining Pilipinas pageant hailing Cebuana Gazini Ganados as the new Miss Universe Philippines on June 19.
On July 10, Filipino-Italian model Celeste Cortesi passed on the Miss Earth Philippines title to another aspiring beauty queen.
In September, Katarina Rodriguez will relinquish her Miss World Philippines crown to another deserving candidate.
Through the years, the country has produced amazing beauty queens, many of whom have started their own families.
