Creative and Daring: "G. and Bb. Gasan 2010"

The town of Gasan, since the staging of the first Bb. Gasan Beauty Pageant in 2002, in connection with the “Araw ng Gasan” celebration then, has consistently encouraged many of the town’s beauties to join the said contest. Many, from different social backgrounds have joined the pageant, with some colegialas even coming home from the big cities just to join the event, probably seeing it as an opportunity to be recognized for the qualities they possess and use the happy experience as a step towards achieving their goals in life.

'Prestige' has increasingly been associated with the contest as winners are not expected to depend entirely on good looks alone but must show their other talents and convince the judges and the audience that they possess enough wit and intelligence to bag the title.

For the first time last year, the pageant organizers decided to include a search for “Ginoong Gasan” (Mr. Gasan), that also coincided with the pageant. The concept of male beauty pageants is fairly new here, but with the introduction of similar pageants in the national level, many of which have been shown on TV, and many other similar searches for not just female but male finds, people are getting used to male and female contestants parading themselves before a usually huge audience in the style of ramp models.

These beauty pageants are quite a hit and they often highlight the weeklong festive celebration. It is a given that the audience from all ages and from all walks of life are ever on the look-out for surprises and various amusement aspects that inevitably goes on stage during these pageants – topics for new stories to be told and retold for quite sometime again.

While some girls in previous pageants have been noted to have no qualms at all about wearing skimpy bikinis, an observer has noted that the girls wore “outdated 50’s swimwear”, but the boys appear more daring as these photos show.

“Ginoo at Binibining Gasan” is expected to get even more ‘glamorous’ than before as personality-improvement workshops, photo-sessions, courtesy visits and tours, not to mention ‘fabulous’ prizes’, are becoming a permanent part of the pageant.
