Ginebra San Miguel 2021 Calendar Girl Christelle Abello
Christelle Abello was drinking gin, neat, during the video conference that introduced her as Ginebra San Miguel’s 2021 Calendar Girl.
The 26-year old model based in California, USA, succeeded GMA 7 talent Sanya Lopez.
The 2021 edition of the Ginebra San Miguel calendar comes in six layouts. Its theme, “Ganado sa Bahay,” shows Christelle appearing motivated and productive amid the pandemic – working from home, playing her favorite video games, honing new skills like painting, and taking care of her body and well-being.
“More than just a pretty face, our Ginebra San Miguel Calendar Girl for 2021 personifies our latest campaign ‘One Ginebra Nation,’” said Ginebra San Miguel Inc. (GSMI) sales and marketing manager Allan Mercado. “We were not only charmed by her intelligence, but also by her optimism, her courage, her never-say-die spirit, her heart for others, and love for her kababayan. We feel that she best represents the brand and we are very happy to welcome Christelle to our Ginebra San Miguel family.”
Christelle was born to Filipino parents. Her father hails from Kalibo, Aklan, and her mother is from Silang, Cavite. She graduated with a degree in Communication from California State University San Marcos.
Growing up in the US, Christelle said her mom taught her Filipino culture and values. She learned to speak Pilipino by watching local teleserye and movies. “I grew up watching ‘Got to Believe,’ and ‘A Very Special Love,’” she recalled.
Christelle’s winning looks and intelligence led to her being crowned Binibining Pilipinas USA 2014. She flew to the Philippines in 2015 to join more beauty pageants. She made it to the Top 10 in Miss World Philippines.
Now she’s representing Miss Aklan at the Miss Universe Philippines, which holds its finals on 25 October.
Through the years, Ginebra San Miguel Calendar Girl had popular beauty queens, models and actors grace its calendars including Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach (2019), Arci Munoz (2018), Kim Domingo (2017), and Marian Rivera (2009 and 2014).
