The Miss Universe Philippines (MUP) organization announced on Monday, July 19 the top 100 delegates for its 2021 edition.
In a series of Facebook posts, MUP revealed the 100 ladies who qualified for the prestigious national beauty pageant. "Who will be our next queens? Let the games begin," they wrote.
Familiar names on the list are Miss Globe 2019 2nd runner-up Leren Mae Bautista, Miss Supranational 2018 1st runner-up Katrina Dimaranan, actress Kisses Delavin, and Asia’s Next Top Model season 5 winner Maureen Wroblewitz.
For this year’s edition, the pageant will start with all 100 delegates. In the succeeding weeks, they will undergo several remote challenges. They will then be narrowed down to 75, then 50 based on the votes from the Miss Universe Philippines mobile app.
The top 50 will then fly to Metro Manila for in-person interviews with the organization. From the 50, 30 delegates will be announced on August 31. They will serve as the official candidates who will compete live and in person during coronation night.
