The Miss Universe Philippines organization released on Sunday, August 29, the list of candidates who won the pageant's various challenges – from the headshot to the interview challenge.
The winners of the challenges, according to the organization, were selected by panelists. They had previously announced the top 15 of each challenge, which were based solely on fan votes.
"For the past weeks, we've narrowed our delegates down from 100 to 75 to 50 based on the combined votes of our panelists and the fans. Your votes definitely mattered and supported your favorite delegate's journey," the organization said.
"We already know the verdict from the fan votes, and with the completion of our last virtual challenge, it's time to let the Universe know of our panelists' decisions from the previous challenges!"
Here's the full list of challenge winners:
The 2021 edition of the pageant started with 100 delegates from all over the country. From 100, candidates were trimmed to 75 then 50, based on votes from fans and the organization.
Only the top 30 will compete in-person during the pageant coronation night, set for September 25. Once the top 30 candidates are selected, the organization said all their scores go back to zero with a different set of judges. – Rappler.com
