ICYMI, the Binibining Pilipinas 2024 coronation night was held last night, July 7. As the pageant’s 60th anniversary, the night was a big moment as dozens of past winners and contestants, including past Miss Universe winners Gloria Diaz, Margie Moran, Pia Wurtzbach, and Catriona Gray, attended a coronation that lowkey became Binibining Pilipinas All-Stars. Ultimately, at the end of the night, two new queens joined the winner’s circle as Abra’s Myrna Esquerra was named Binibining Pilipinas International 2024 while Pampanga’s Jasmin Bungay was crowned Binibining Pilipinas Globe 2024. The latter, in particular, got netizens talking for all the right reasons with her Q&A answer that was the definition of *chef’s kiss*.


During the Top 15 Q&A segment, Jasmin Bungay was asked, “If you were given 30 minutes to talk to the public, what would you talk about?” Her response was a fan-favorite that got cheers from the crowd both at the Araneta Coliseum and online. 

“I would be given 30 minutes to talk to the public, I would like to talk about the passing of the SOGIE bill, because in this celebration such as pageant, this community has contributed so much. And in this regard, we can give back to them by supporting this cause because as an individual, it is our responsibility that we ensure that everyone is treated equally, despite their SOGIE,” said the Pampanga beauty in her eye-catching Harvey Cenit gown

What made her answer even better was that the question was asked by Gloria Diaz, who made the rounds online for comments that were widely perceived to be transphobic when she was asked about trans women participating in Miss Universe. 

Jasmin’s answer hit the mark not only because she emphasized the importance of passing the SOGIE Bill and advocated for equality and inclusivity, but also highlighted the impact and influence of the LGBTQIA+ community on the pageant world, something that isn’t always reflected in the major pageants. Her saying that to someone who doesn’t think trans women should be in Miss Universe was the cherry on top. TBH, that answer alone deserved Jasmin her Binibining Pilipinas Globe crown. 


She also wasn’t the only queen to give a memorable answer during the Q&A though. When asked which historical figure she would like to have as a judge at the pageant’s 60th year, Calamba’s Vienne Feucht chose noted French author and feminist Simone de Beauvoir

“She may not be alive right now, but she is the most influential historical figure to me,” Vienne said. “Because, as an advocate of violence against anti-violence against women and children, she has opened my eyes that we women have the most right to be powerful, because we can lead an entire army. And I want her to see the strong women versions in this generation.” Period! These queens proving once again that a Binibining Pilipinas is more than just looks and beauty, but a woman who is socially aware, advocates for just causes, and champions what is right. 



Jasmin Bungay will represent the Philippines in The Miss Globe pageant later this year as she hopes to follow in the footsteps of her predecessor, Anna Lakrini, who reached 2nd runner-up at The Miss Globe 2023. Given her run in Binibining Pilipinas 2024, we have a feeling Jasmin will do fine, and while hopefully still using her platform to advocate and raise awareness for equality.
