Crossover contestants at Binibining Pilipinas 2023

Crossover beauties are nothing new at Binibining Pilipinas or the majority of the most established national beauty pageants in the Philippines.

Lucky for these ladies as they are given second or even third chances to try and pursue the national crowns of their dreams — a true test of courage and determination.

A really good example is Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach, who had to join three times to win and eventually bag her highly coveted international title. She became one of the most talked about Binibini and Miss Universe ever.

Another one is Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray, the first Filipina beauty queen to capture both Miss World and Miss Universe Philippines titles. After missing out on winning Miss World 2016, she joined Binibining Pilipinas and lava-walked her way to the universe.

At this year's Binibining Pilipinas, a lot of contestants in the Top 40 have either competed in other pageants or have already won a national title.
