Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, January 8) — Miss World Philippines 2016 Catriona Gray is once again joining a beauty pageant.

The 23-year-old, Filipino-Australian model went to the Binibining Pilipinas Charities Inc. office on Monday to file her application for the 2018 pageant. 

In an Instagram post, she said her move to apply for the Binibining Pilipinas was not in her plans at all.

"Today marks the reveal of an evolution of self that has been quietly happening away from the public's eye for a little while now.  It was in no way planned, but sometimes the stars align to make things happen," she said in her post with hashtag #CatrionaBBP2018 or Binibining Pilipinas 2018.

Gray finished in the Top 5 of Miss World 2016 in the coronation night held in Maryland, U.S. in December 2016.

Other reported Binibining Pilipinas 2018 applicants are volleyball star Michele Gumabao and "Pinoy Big Brother" housemate Vickie Rushton.
