For the third time, Vickie Rushton is joining Binibining Pilipinas! She’s eyeing the Bb. Pilipinas International title since the Miss Universe Philippines title is now being carried out as a separate pageant.
According to the Qrown Philippines website, the former housemate of the “Pinoy Big Brother” reality show secretly filed her application for Bb. Pilipinas 2020 last January 29.
Rushton took to Instagram on Tuesday night to thank all those who supported her 3rd shot at Bb. Pilipinas.
“Since the announcement, I have been receiving lots of words of encouragement. I’ve read your messages, comments, and posts. And for that, thank you. You are the reason why I will never stop trying. I just want to thank all of you for believing in me. Yes, I have fears, it’s normal, but I know I can do this because I have you by my side,” she said.
Rushton first joined Bb. Pilipinas in 2018, wherein she finished as first runner-up to Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray.
In 2019, she joined again in hopes of taking home the prestigious title of Miss Universe Philippines but ended up finishing in the Top 15 after falling short on the Q&A portion.
Bea Patricia Magtanong, the reigning Bb. Pilipinas International, expressed her support for Rushton’s goal to bring home the title this year. She showed her support by commenting on Vickie Rushton’s Instagram post.
