MANILA – Even if she did not win a crown, Vickie Rushton still got to join the winners of the Binibining Pilipinas 2019 pageant in their visit to the office of the local broadsheet Manila Bulletin.
The former “Pinoy Big Brother” housemate was reunited with her Bb. Pilipinas 2019 batchmates as the recipient of the Manila Bulletin Readers’ Choice special award during the pageant.
“It’s so good to be back! Thank you so much for today, Manila Bulletin! Thank you also to Bb. Pilipinas for inviting me today,” Rushton said in an Instagram post on Monday.
Newly crowned Bb. Pilipinas International Patricia Magtanong also shared a clip of their group – including Rushton – goofing around in the Manila Bulletin office.
A Mutya ng Pilipinas 2011 titleholder, Rushton first joined Bb. Pilipinas in 2018 and finished first runner-up to Catriona Gray.
The actress was widely tipped to win the Miss Universe Philippines crown this year, but she fell short of getting even a runner-up finish because of her performance in the question and answer round.
