The event was graced by former Bb Pilipinas title holders. Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach also made a special appearance to wish the ladies luck in the competition.

The ladies wore swimsuits by Jeffrey Rogador and shoes by Jojo Bragais for the presentation. 

This year’s competition will have some changes. For the Miss Photogenic award 2017, the public will have a chance to vote, which will be added to the media’s votes. To choose your favorite candidate, go to or through the Bb Pilipinas mobile app, which can be downloaded via Android and iOs.

One candidate, #36 Mae Lanie Chan is no longer part of the competition. Bb Pilipinas has yet to announce who will replace her or if they will stick to 39 candidates this year.
