The 28 Miss Universe Philippines 2021 candidates paraded their respective national costumes on Thursday, September 23.

In the video released by the MUP organization, the candidates were dancing to BGYO’s “KULAY” while showing off their respective outfits. The national costume has no bearing in the pageant but is one of the most anticipated parts of the competition.

Two from the Top 30 candidates had to withdraw from the competition. Zambales’ Joanna Maria Rabe caught dengue while Davao City’s Ybonne Ortega tested positive for COVID-19. 

The remaining 28 candidates are currently locked-in in their pageant bubble at Clark, Pampanga for their pageant activities. The preliminary interviews segment airs on Friday, September 24 while the preliminary swimsuit and evening gown competitions airs on Sunday, September 26. 

A new date for the coronation night has yet to be announced after the organization postponed the initial September 25 schedule.
