Days before the finals, Miss Universe Philippines National Director, Shamcey Supsup-Lee took time from her busy schedule to speak to select media about the pageant.

Through the innovative Ring Light series subscription on www.empire.ph, the pageant has been able to help beneficiaries chosen by the candidates. In addition to the candidates' beneficiaries, AHA Learning Center, WWF, United Filipinos, and the Philippine COVID Archive also receive proceeds from the subscriptions.
