Nicole Herlene Budol, better known as “Hipon Girl,” is creating a buzz in the ongoing Binibining Pilipinas 2022 search.
The 22-year-old former co-host of Willie Revillame’s game show is dead serious about making her dream to become a beauty queen come true.
“Any of the titles. I hope it would come true. I would stop acting, if I get a crown,” said the 5-foot-8 rising TV comedienne during a recent meet-and-greet occasion.
Budol, who is in the cast of GMA’s romance-comedy False Positive, has chosen Autism Awareness and Detection as her social platform for the competition. She temporarily stopped her studies at the College of St. John Paul after getting a break in entertainment.
Born and raised in Angono, Rizal, the YouTube top vlogger is under the tutelage of beauty queen maker Rodgil Flores and managed by Wilbert Tolentino.
