The Miss Universe Philippines Organization said they will launch an online series to document the journey of its candidates leading up to its finals night.
The online series Ring Light features 8 episodes and follows the 50 candidates’ journey in the competition.
Right Light is described as “the first of its kind in the Philippines” and promises to give pageant fans an inside look into the transformation of the candidates.
“From rigorous training to fascinating challenges and fun, behind-the-scenes activities, Ring Light proves that there’s more to beauty than meets the eye,” reads the show’s media release.
“We’re very excited to launch Ring Light, the first-ever fundraising online pageant series that will allow fans to take the same journey to the crown while making a positive impact,” said Miss Universe Philippines national director Shamcey Supsup-Lee.
“With this online series, we hope to inspire our viewers to find their own light and empowerment and show that beauty is not only skin deep.”
The series won’t be streamed for free, since it’s also a fundraising activity. Portions of each subscription goes to a candidates’ chosen beneficiary and partner organization. Fans can check their chosen candidates’ Instagram page for the referral code to use in buying their subscription.
All episodes will be streamed through the website Empire.ph. Fans can subscribe to the early bird promo (P249) from July 22 to August 31. A subscription also gives you access to the livestream of the first ever Miss Universe Philippines finals night.
