San Fernando crowned Binibining Cebu 2020

THE Binibining Cebu 2020 Coronation Night took place Monday Jan. 13, 2020.

As soon as the doors opened, fans immediately settled in their seats waiting in anticipation on who the next Binibining Cebu will be crowned. The audience got to meet the 54 lovely candidates. After the last contestant made her introduction, however, the emcee announced minutes after that they’ll have to redo the opening segment, leaving the audience wondering what was the cause behind the do-over.

Binibining Cebu organizers answered: “The reason behind the restart of the opening program for Binibining Cebu 2020 was to address technical difficulties involving the lighting so we can provide a better show for the audience and judges alike. In any event or project, there will always be unforeseen circumstances and areas for improvement that we all can learn from and apply moving forward. Repeat performances due to technical difficulties have also happened in national pageants. In this instance, the production team acted quickly to resolve the technical difficulty and ensured that the program resumed swiftly with the best interests of all in mind.”

Moving forward, the organizers look on this as a teachable moment. “With this year’s learnings, we will continue to work towards ensuring a better experience for all in the next one as we do every year.”

This year’s Binibining Cebu was awarded to San Fernando representative, Beatrice Luigi Gomez. Joining her court are Amanda Basnillo from Dalaguete as Bb. Cebu Ecology, Marla Alforque from Carcar City as Bb. Cebu Heritage, Betty Davis from Cebu City North as Bb. Cebu Charity and Ameena Allababidi from Cordova as Bb. Cebu Tourism. (MRL)
