Miss Universe swimsuits are recycled in Binibining Pilipinas 2010

Like what I have promised you in my previous post, here is the separate blog entry on the swimsuits that were recycled by the Binibining Pilipinas Organization. When the official swimsuit photographs of the 24 Binibining Pilipinas 2010 candidates surfaced in the internet, I have observed that two ladies are wearing the bikinis worn by former Miss Philippines Gionna Cabrera who competed in Miss Universe 2005 in Thailand.

Candidate No. 1 Mariella Castillo is wearing the preliminary swimsuit of Miss Universe 2005 while candidate No. 10 Maria Venus Raj is wearing the official swimsuit that was used during the final night.

In the first picture is Mariella while on the second one is Gionna during the 2005 Miss Universe.

Venus Raj is in the first picture while Miss Universe 2005 winner Natalie Glebova of Canada is in the second photo.

Fans are asking if these were the same swimsuits Gionna wore during the Miss Universe pageant. Or are these another swimsuits separately bought by Stella Marquez Araneta, the head of BPCI?

If these are the same swimwears which was used by Gionna, they are supposed to keep them as souvenirs. How come BPCI are keeping it instead of the delegate, then recycle?

A bigger problem of recycling these swimsuits is health reason. It is gross and disgusting of letting the girls wear panties which have been overused.

Wake up, BPCI!
