The said pageant is the first edition of Miss Grand Philippines competition under the ALV Pageant Circle management, after Binibining Pilipinas Charities Inc. withdrew from the franchise.
Herlene, also known as 'Hipon Girl', is an actress, comedian, and social media star who broke through in showbiz as a contestant on “Wowowin” and later became a host. Herlene was first runner-up and won several minor awards at the 2022 Binibining Pilipinas pageant.
Recently, Herlene admitted that she has been feeling extremely nervous about the Miss Grand Philippines 2023 pageant. The beauty queen has also been anxious about the possibility of people criticizing her performance at the pageant. Amid all of the anxiety, Herlene expressed her appreciation for Wilbert Tolentino, her manager, who she described as her “Mima” who is always there for her. Herlene also thanked Madam Inutz for always giving her valuable pieces of advice.
Previously, Herlene's video as one of the contestants for Miss Grand Philippines surfaced online. In the video, one of the judges asked her if aside from her huge following on social media, what else does she think will get her the crown. Herlene had the judge repeat the question, which prompted the latter to repeat it, but this time around, in Tagalog. The beauty queen then answered with a mixture of English and Tagalog.
