She's a born winner.
As Binibining Pilipinas season approches, a name familiar to Filipino volleyball fans started making noise online, following her reported application to the national beauty competition.
Michele Gumabao, who recently joined the Creamline Cool Smashers with longtime DLSU and Pocari teammate Melissa Gohing, was reportedly one of the interested women who filed their names into the ballot.
And while she's yet to confirm or deny the report, it actually is a sound suggestion to have one of the most recognizable volleybelles in the Philippines to represent flag and country in the beauty pageant stage.
Not convinced? Let's list down 10 reasons why Michele Gumabao would make the perfect Bb. Pilipinas!
1. She has undeniable swag
Almost every member of the DLSU Lady Spikers has been baptized with the 'Swag Queen' monicker, and Michele Gumabao is a prime example.
Known for her fearless and exhalting nature on the court, just imagine the 25-year-old opposite spiker representing the Philippines with the same passion.
2. She's a hard worker
You won't be in the game for as long as Michele has if you're not dedicated. And that dedication has led her to be one of the most prominent volleybelles in the country.
That same dedication is what she uses to work out and improve daily. With a quick browse of her Instagram, you'll easily witness her relentless work ethic and equally exhausting workout routine.
3. She's incredibly fit
Being fit comes with being a successful athlete, and Michele is no exception. As a veteran volleybelle, she's managed to stay in incredible shape. Case in point: her entire IG feed.
4. She's a stellar fashion inspiration
Aside from her envy-inducing physical fitness, she's also a low key fashion icon. She doesn't necessarily have any uproarious fits but any outfit, any time, one thing's for sure: Michele will slay.
5. She's calm, articulate, and professional
One of the most underrated traits a beauty queen has to possess is her ability to think clearly and confidently under pressure.
Aside from being under immense pressure every time she's on the court, her experience on TV and as a celebrity has taught her how to keep calm and composed.
6. She's pretty versatile on and off the court
Aside from being able to launch unstoppably quick kills, she can also rise up and block shots, as seen in her Best Middle Blocker awards in the UAAP and in the Premier Volleyball League. More than that, though, she's also multi-talented as a celebrity host, AND a volleyball commentator.
Talk about a woman in action.
7. Her Champion mentality
From her collegiate days in La Salle with the Lady Spikers, to her dyanstic run with the Pocari Sweat Lady Warriors in the V-League, Michele Gumabao has proven that she's a born winner.
8. She's not afraid to show her true self
When she's not out there improving her self and slaying, Michele Gumabao is out with her friends being her goofy and bubbly self. Her real self.
9. She's a complete stunner
She's an athlete, she's a TV personality, and she's also a full-fledged model who can stun anyone with her distincly Filipina glow.
10. She's a proud supporter of Filipino athletes
