Will third time be a charm for Vickie Marie Rushton at Binibining Pilipinas?

Vickie Marie Rushton will prove the saying ‘third time is a charm’ right as she has decided to participate in Binibining Pilipinas for the third consecutive year and finally win a chance to represent her country at an international beauty pageant. The stunning 27-year-old beauty had this one chance to qualify to participate as the age limit is 28 in every pageant.

Vickie has had an impeccable journey in the pageantry in this decade as she began in 2009 where she 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. Thereafter, Vickie made it her life long dream to win the crown and again tried her luck in Binibining Pilipinas 2019. As luck would not have it, Vickie fumbled in the question and answer round as she got distracted and ended up being placed in the Top 15.

With her absolutely incredible journey in the pageant world, Vickie is bound to give her last try to her coveted dream before she it expires. Being an experienced beauty queen and having a vast career in TV in Philippines, Vickie is surely a strong competition as everyone knows. She needs no introduction as she is very loved and famous in the Philippines.

Vickie is a Eurasian beauty as she gets her Filipina heritage from her mother while her father is British. 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.

There is no doubt that she could take on any challenge in life and we sure would love to see her give the national pageant a last try before she can finally let go of her dream. After Miss International increasing the age limit to 28 years for the national delegates, we feel she could be the perfect representative of Philippines at Miss International 2020, winning the right through Binibining Pilipinas 2020.
