The 57th edition of Binibining Pilipinas will be held soon where the thirty-nine delegates will compete for the national titles and an opportunity to represent the Philippines at various international pageants.

The competition was initially halted after covid-19 pandemic begin across the world. The pre-pageant activities resumed in the month of November 2020 and the organization hinted the summer of 2021 for hosting the pageant.

While the batch of 2020 has been preparing with sincerity and dedication, there are a few who have caught everyone’s eye to win big this year. Vickie Marie Rushton, in our opinion, is an ideal candidate to represent the Philippines at the Miss International stage.



Vickie a Filipino-British actress, television presenter, and model is 28-years-old and stands 168 cm tall and is considered as one of the strongest contenders for the title. She pursued her education in Interdisciplinary Studies at the University of Saint La Salle in Bacolod and graduated in 2013. At an early age, she was weighed down by the familial responsibilities, which is why she participated in various pageants to be able to earn money as she was the breadwinner in her household. The diva did no let any obstacle stand in her way and emerged victorious from every challenging situation in her life.

She is not new to the pageantry as she has represented Talisay in the Lin-ay sang Negros 2009 pageant and won the title. In 2011, Vickie went on to win her first national crown Mutya ng Pilipians 2011. Rushton was supposed to represent the Philippines in the Miss Intercontinental 2011 pageant in Alicante, Spain. However, because of the delayed schedule of the local pageant, she could not fulfil that dream. Seven years later, Rushton came back to the pageant scene where she participated in Binibining Pilipinas 2018 and with her incredible performance, she placed as the first runner-up. Upon, joining the Binibining Pilipinas 2019, she was considered as an early favorite to win the competition but finished at Top 15.



Now, Binibining Pilipinas 2020 is going to be Vickie’s last attempt to represent the Philippines at the international stage and she wants to use every opportunity and activity to showcase that she is worthy of the title. She is using the platform to advocate about Down Syndrome. She has used her social media to stress out that she wants to advocate for people with special needs because "these children depend on us to voice out what they can't say and to fight for them." She urged the public to educate themselves "because there is so much, we can do for them and it's as simple as embracing them and being kind to them."

With such experience, determination, and zeal to not only represent the country at international stage but also use the platform for something good and beneficial for the ones who need it, Vickie is already emerging as one of the strongest contenders for the title and we believe that she could be the winner for Binibining Pilipinas International 2020.
