Charo Santos-Concio and Hilda Koronel led the list of top 10 beauty queens who became accomplished actresses in the recent episode of FYE Channel’s showbiz talk show “Best 10 Bets.”
Host Butch Francisco named Hilda as his top pick while his co-host Leo Katigbak picked Charo as his bet.
According to Butch, a very young Hilda emerged as first runner-up in the pageant Miss Night Owl before she entered showbiz and made her mark.
“Parang 12 years old, nanalo na siya ng FAMAS for the war movie ‘Santiago’ with FPJ. Ngayon, basta pag sinabi mong Hilda Koronel, dekalidad,” shared Butch.
Meanwhile, Leo hailed Charo, a former Miss Calapan and Baron Travel Girl, for her great contribution to the movie industry and achievement as a former president of ABS-CBN.
He said, “Charo has reached a level that no one has really accomplished. She is also the producer responsible for the very good movies of the experimental cinema in the Philippines.”
Also joining the show as co-host for the first time was Gandang Morenx or Johanna Ariexia Quilinderino in real life, a former flight attendant turned social media influencer who gave her two cents on the topic and named Catriona Gray and Pia Wurtzbach as the beauty queens who have accomplished so much in the current generation.
