Si Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach ng Cagayan de Oro City ang nanalo bilang Binibining Pilipinas 2015 (Miss Universe Philippines 201) sa kakatapos lang na pageant, held at the Araneta Coliseum in Cubao, Quezon City, last Sunday, March 15, 2015.

Naging emosyonal si Wurtzbach—who also snagged the Bb. Creamsilk award—after being crowned by reigning Miss Universe Philippines 2014 Mary Jean Lastimosa.

Samantala, nanalong Bb. Pilipinas International si Janicel Lubina ng Palawan, also bagging Best in Swimsuit and Best in Long Gown. Si Ann Lorraine Colis naman ng  Mexico, Pampanga ang nanalo bilang Bb. Pilipinas Tourism; ang Cebuanang si Rogelie Catacutan won Bb. Pilipinas Supranational; and Christi Lynn McGarry of Nabua, Camarines Sur was crowned Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental crown.

This is Pia Wurtzbach’s third try competing at Binibining Pilipinas; it seems the third time’s the charm for the 25-year old, who also managed to win first runner-up and reach the top 15 in the 2013 and 2014 Binibining Pilipinas beauty pageants respectively.

Pia will join the prestigious 64th Miss Universe pageant to be held later this year.
