Herlene Budol aka "Hipon Girl" revealed that she will be joining the Binibining Pilipinas pageant.

In an interview with Karen Davila in her latest YouTube vlog, Herlene shared that it was her manager who encouraged her to join the pageant.

"Minotivate po ako ni sir Wilbert (Tolentino) kasi siya daw po nakakita ng potential ko. Parang sabi niya na para ma-boost pa 'yung confidence ko, maging maganda ako sa paningin ko kasi hindi rin talaga ako nagagandahan sa sarili ko," she said.


When asked if she feels nervous about joining the said national pageant, she relayed, "May kaba po sobra kasi 'yung utak ko medyo hindi masyadong pasado sa standard siguro ng Binibining Pilipinas, pang-barangay lang po ako. Kasi nanalo ako dito sa amin, Binibining Angono ng Sining 2017 kaya po ako natawag na hipon kasi parang kinanchawan lang po ako."

Herlene relayed that she is currently undergoing training to be a beauty pageant contestant.

"'Yung utakan po, iyon po 'yung dinagdagan po nila sa akin kasi wala po akong kaunting knowledge about sa kung ano... communication, tapos dapat kapag nagte-training kami English lang, walang Tagalogan. Tapos walking po, kung paano dalhin 'yung heels kasi dati nakalimutan ko na siyang dalhin, natutumba na po ako," she stated.

Herlene shared that there are some people who have ridiculed her for planning to join the pageant.

She shared, "Sasabihin nila ibigay na lang sa iba 'yung opportunity kasi hindi naman deserve tapos 'yung iba naman wala daw akong class bakit sasali ako sa ganon? Wala naman pinipili 'yun."

She stressed that she is joining Binibining Pilipinas to prove something to herself and not to others.

"Hindi ka naman sumali don para may patunayan sa iba, dapat may patunayan ka muna sa sarili mo kasi para ma-improve 'yung self-confidence, 'yung mga mali po sa akin maitama. Hindi ko naman 'to ginawa para sa iba eh. Ginawa ko 'to para sa sarili ko," she said. 

In the same interview, Herlene shared that she will be finishing her college education this year.

"Nag-aaral pa rin po ako. Ga-graduate po ako ngayong taon," she said.

Herlene will be earning her degree in Bachelor of Science in Tourism Management.

When asked why she decided to finish her studies, she said, "'Yung sabi kapag may kita kang pera, tatamarin ka nang mag-aral. Ang akin naman po, bakit ako magta-trabaho, para saan, para po makapag-aral. Pwede ka naman po magtrabaho habang nag-aaral. Pwede kang mag-aral habang nagtatrabaho."

She added that she also wants to make her parents dream for her to come true.

"Pwede naman po akong tumigil na talaga dati pero ayaw ko pong madismaya sila tatay tsaka si nanay, lolo at lola ko po kasi pangarap po nila sa akin maging flight attendant kasi may kamag-anak sila, matanda na ngayon, [sabi nila], 'Alam mo anak 'yung tita mo taga-Pangasinan nag-flight attendant, tingnan mo nakapag-around the world sila,'" she said.

Herlene rose to popularity after she joined a segment and became a regular host of Willie Revillame's Wowowin.

She is currently active as a vlogger with 1.7 million subscribers on YouTube.
