Herlene Budol, also known as "Hipon Girl," is shooting her shot in the prestigious Binibining Pilipinas pageant.
On her Instagram page, the comedian-host shared the preparations she did in the past week before submitting her application for the pageant, which will only be open until April 8.
Among her efforts include undergoing a makeup trial for her shoot and trying out swimsuits.
Sharing a photo of her in full-glam makeup on April 4, Herlene wrote, "Makeup trial ni Hipon at subukan ko lang makipagsapalaran mag-register sa Binibining Pilipinas nitong April 8. Sana pumasa ako sa audition at suportahan niyo pa rin ako kung ano lang kaya ni Hipon, ah."
The 22-year-old vlogger then gave a shoutout to her trainer Rodin Flores of Kagandahang Flores for helping her gear up for the pageant, and her manager, Wilbert Tolentino, who encouraged her to join Bb. Pilipinas.
"Salamat sa aking KF family specially kay Tito @rodinb.flores at willing po ako mag-undergo training! Wala naman mawawala kung subukan natin, 'di ba, mga solidong ka-Squammy?I will give my best hangga't may taong naniniwala sa akin tulad ni Manager @sirwil75 at gusto ko maging proud siya sa akin. Dahil siya rin naghikayat at nag-motivate sa akin. At siyempre, gusto ko rin magkaroon ng improvement on my own!" she wrote.
On her next post later that day, Herlene showed off her curves in a maroon bikini from her swimsuit try-on for the shoot.
Herlene gave another update, saying that she and her team took until midnight to finish shooting the looks she needed for her application.
"Kahit inabot ng madaling araw ang Hipon girl niyo sa shoot para makapag-submit ng application sa darating na April 8 para sa Binibining Pilipinas, lavarn at go lang sa iba't-ibang look!! Walang pagod at suko akong maramdaman! Basta tiwala ako kay Lord at well-motivated ako matuto sa lahat ng bagay [na] ipinagkaloob sa akin sa itaas!"
"First time ko ito sasali ng national pageant, sana isama niyo ako sa mga prayers niyo, mga ka-Hipon, ka-Budol, at ka-Squammy! Pagmamahal at suporta niyo pa lang ay malaking bagay para sa akin. Love you all," she added.
Herlene first revealed her plans of joining Bb. Pilipinas in an interview with Karen Davila uploaded on April 2. In it, the comedian said that she wanted to join the pageant to prove something to herself, and not to others.
"Hindi ka naman sumali doon para may patunayan sa iba, dapat may patunayan ka muna sa sarili mo kasi para ma-improve 'yung self-confidence, 'yung mga mali po sa akin maitama. Hindi ko naman 'to ginawa para sa iba, eh. Ginawa ko 'to para sa sarili ko," she stated.
