Caroline Subijano is a Filipino model, and a newscaster who became Binibining Pilipinas-World 1994,[1] Her career began in fashion modelling when she won the Supermodel of the Philippines competition during a summer break from her political science and journalism studies at UC Berkeley. She endorsed several products in the Philippines, from Sunsilk, Creamsilk, and Ovaltine Light.

After graduating college, Cara competed and won in the Binibining Pilipinas competition. She was preceded as Bb. Pilipinas-World, by Ruffa Gutierrez, who had won the title Miss World 2nd Princess during her year. When Cara competed in the international pageant a year later, she placed among the Top Ten Finalists. She five weeks in South Africa helping raise millions of dollars with her co-contestants for the United Nations Project ‘Operation Hunger’, gained close friendships with Patinya Thongsri (Miss Thailand) and Aishwarya Rai (Miss India and the crowned Miss World 1994), and had the privilege to shake hands with former South African President Nelson Mandela.

After passing her crown to the next Binibining Pilipinas-World 1995 (Reham Snow Tago), Cara continued modeling and became a Board Member of the Philippine Models Association of the Philippines (PMAP). She was also chosen to be one of two first CalCarries Models to be sent to Asia, and became the face of the ready to wear fashion Giordano in Hong Kong. She had also taken the lead role in several commercials and fashion shows in Japan, Taiwan, Indonesia, and Hong Kong.

Although her career in fashion was flourishing, Cara decided to her dream of working in journalism and newscasting. Back in college, she had already started her training as a Public and Community Relations Intern for KRON/NBC Channel 4 and as a Broadcast News Intern for KTVU/FOX Channel 2. Fortunately, Cara soon became a sportscaster and entertainment anchor for local channels in the Philippines. She later joined the news team of Sky Cable News, an affiliate of ABS-CBN Broadcasting Corporation. And two years later, Cara signed up with the Genesis Artists Management Company of Gary and Angeli Valenciano and started doing television and special events hosting.

Cara relocated back to California, and has been working in a management role for several companies in the high-tech and medical device industry.

When ABS-CBN International decided to produce Balitang America, a Filipino-American Week-end News Program, Cara was tapped to become the show's news anchor. Working with the ABS-CBN Company has allowed Cara to experience different aspects of the media industry, from her anchor position, reporting stints, special events hosting, TV commercial productions, and TV advertising sales. Balitang America Week-end News ended its run after seven years, but Cara continues to be part of the ABS-CBN family as she fills in special hosting and anchoring stints in other productions.

Cara currently lives in the California with her husband, Ken, and her daughter, Ashley. In her spare time, she keeps in touch with her parents Art and Cynthia, and siblings (Ivy, Carlo, Dino, and Kathleen), and friends from all over the world.
