GERALDINE ASIS: BINIBINING PILIPINAS UNIVERSE 1987

Geraldine "Pebbles" Asis was only 22 years old when she competed at the Binibining PIlipinas 1987. She was a fashion model back then who hailed from Roxas City, Capiz. During the pre-pageant activities of Bb Pilipinas 1987, Pebbles was never a fan favourite because at that time, the early stand-outs were Maria Luisa Jimenez, Maria Lourdes Enriquez, fashion model Ana Margarita Pobre, and Marie Avon Garcia who was the daughter of Philippine actress Marissa Delgado. Pebbles started to shine during the coronation night of the pageant because of her oozing confidence and bubbly personality.

Jump to 12:30 and you will see how Pebbles stole the spotlight from Ana Margarita Pobre, one of the early favourites for the crown that year, as the former stood behind the latter during the evening gown competition. Pebbles wore this baroque-inspired black velvet number by Louie Mamengco, one of the popular fashion designers in the '80s along with Inno Sotto and Patis Tesoro.

Pebbles became a Top 10 semifinalist at the Miss Universe edition that was held in Singapore that year. The Miss Universe crown eventually went to Chile for the first time in the person of Cecilia Bolocco. At any rate, we were thankful to Pebbles for making a mark at Miss Universe that time when the Philippines did not have any beauty camps or standard training regimen at all. "Mabuhay ka, Pebbles!"

One of the best reps Philippines had in Miss U! Full of class and sophistication! Even better than most Binibinis produced in the last decade tbh!

This woman is so tall in person, even without heels! She grew old gracefully. She still has that elegance and grace.

My uncle said this woman can make everyone stop what they are doing when she enters a room just by her mere x-factor.

Patok na patok si Geraldine Pebbles sa Singapore. The moment she landed, she was already favorite to win. I remember, Manila Bulletin ran an article about her being favorite among the candidates several days before the final's night and true enough, she was placed top 10 easily. During her introduction, she was heavily applauded. If you ran her video introduction in the Miss Universe pageant night and you'll see and hear how the audience strongly awed before she even started speaking on stage. Manila Bulletin mentioned that she was favorited because of her Eurasian features, porcelain skin complexion and most important of them all is her mighty height. However, during the pre selection process of Binibining Pilipinas, I heard from various stories here that she was invited by no less than Madame Stella Marquez to be screened out because of her mestiza look while she was seen accompanying a friend for engagement then was fast tracked during the screening selection as a Binibini candidate. From an early stage of her pageant days, she already had the potential to win with her oozing self confidence and physical features.

Did I say that she was patok na patok sa Singapore with the local media so that's why she was heavily favorite. I don't think that if she was sent to Panama, she will conquer the same placement she had in Singapore. It was just right and she got what she deserved so there's no need to regret if she was sent to another edition.

.

Yes, her questions in the interview portion were so pathetic and bland. Even, an elementary student can answer the same with ease. Unlike the other candidates, they were given so much time to expound their personal experience on and off the pageant world but with Pebbles, it was just about her college degree and family living in the United States. Likewise, it what was like filling up a personal/biographic data to be passed on for a driver's license or state ID. However, she reclaimed that lost when she was chosen to be asked backstage prior to the swimsuit competition with Ms Singapore and Ms USA. Even Miss Chile Cecilia Bolocco who ended up Miss Universe was waiting to be asked for but Ms Mary, the co host just passed by her. I believe, she got what she deserved because during pre pageant activities, she was already all over the media in Singapore and back in the Philippines. Even her chaperone in Singapore was so surprised and amused about the receptions that she was getting over there. However, it could have been an icing in the cake if she had won the competition but it wasn't not quite sure. On the other hand despite of it, we should be just thankful that she represented our country beautifully at that time that it was a very stiff competition among the candidates there was. Everything back then was all glitz and glamour.

yes she was the maldita type. I remembered her sour expression when Italy was called to top five and not her. she even gave a bad sideway look to miss Italy during the announcement. other wise her bubbly personality and beauty with height makes up for everything

Ito yung panahon na halos walang salamat dok na candidates kaya expected na bitch talaga ang mga beauty queens. Ang malala yung mga nineties girls, andaming maldita talaga, pero andami ring mga nag-Bruneiyuki from that decade ha, LOL! In fairness naman kahit clapper ang maraming girls from Binibini during the eighties and nineties, may mga career sila sa modeling at di lang puro pageants ang focus.

Yung mga beauty queens ngayon may mga crowns/placements nga pero waley namang ganap talaga, masyadong nag-invest sa pageants pero wala halos ibang focus kaya ang cheap ng datingan. Maraming nasayang na beauties pero antaas naman kasi ng kaledad ng beauty queens noon. Ngayon dinadaan sa research, memorized answers and mga kacheapang pasimbulo, very calculated na ang Miss Universe.

She was stunning in that gown at Miss Universe. She would have placed much higher, establishing a great first impression, if they had done the EG portion first.
