Tinuldukan na ni Winwyn Marquez ang mga haka-hakang sasali siya sa 56th edition ng Binibining Pilipinas sa June 2019.
Hindi ito ikatutuwa ng mga naniniwala at nagbibigay sa kanya ng pag-asang malaki ang tsansa niyang makuha ang Miss Universe Philippines title.
Wala nang dapat patunayan pa si Winwyn sa mga beauty pageant dahil siya ang kauna-unahang Asian na nanalo noong 2017 ng international beauty title, ang Reina Hispanicoamericana, kaya tama lang sundin niya ang kasabihang "Don’t push your luck too far."
Ito ang opisyal na pahayag ni Winwyn tungkol sa kanyang final decision na huwag nang sumali sa Binibining Pilipinas, na sinubukan na niya noong 2015 pero hindi siya pinalad magwagi:
"Thank you so much to everyone that shared their kind words and comments these past few months. I’ve read All your messages and comments!
"I’m so humbled by your thoughts and words of encouragement in joining this pageant season.
"Sobrang nakakataba po ng puso but due to my work commitments and upcoming projects with my current network, I will not be able to join BBP since I have an existing contract and projects lined up.
"Due to the nature of the competition, BBP has strict rules that you cannot have existing contracts when joining.
"There will always be a part of me that wants to compete in the pageant setting at masakit din sa akin na hindi ako makakasali pero alam ko na hindi pwede sabay-sabay ang lahat ng bagay.
"Kailangan mag-focus lang po sa isa to be able to succeed and do things well.
"I’ve given this much thought and careful consideration especially since when I focus on something, I commit 101% to it.
"So for this reason, I’ve decided to focus on the next phase of my career/journey.
"I’ve been very fortunate to share my passion for competing in the pageant world and represent our country in the best way I can.
"I am so grateful to contribute in bringing home a crown since that’s not an easy thing to do.
"Importante sa akin na naipakita natin ang talento at KAKAYAHAN ng FILIPINO on the world stage.
"I will never forget my experience as the first Filipino Reina Hispanoamericana and for the life long friendships I’ve made along the way.
"Now, I would like to focus on improving my craft and to continue building on my community engagement program for children in local communities. I’ll share more of this soon.
"We will never know kung ano pa ang puwedeng mangyari sa future but I do believe that God will always lead us to the best parts of our life. Di ba?
"Nakakataba po ng puso ang SUPORTA ninyo sa akin, even from people from different countries! I hope you all understand and sana suportahan niyo pa din ako sa journey na ito kahit hindi na sa pageant stage.
"Maraming maraming salamat po."
