This is a diverse lineup – fewer than last year’s 41 candidates, with plenty of returning hopefuls. In the spotlight this year, for example, is Pia Wurtzbach, who’s back for a third and possibly final try – she made it to the top 10 last year. Hannah Ruth Sison, last year’s 2nd runner-up, is also giving it a go for the 3rd time. There’s even a celebrity daughter – candidate 34 is Teresita Marquez, better known by her nickname Wynwyn, is the daughter of comedian Joey Marquez and Alma Moreno.  (IN PHOTOS: The 34 Bb Pilipinas 2015 candidates)
