Katrina Dimaranan, Miss Universe Philippines 2021 representative of Taguig City, topped leaderboard forecast of pageant pages on Facebook ahead of the coronation night on September 30.

The much-anticipated event will take place at the Henann Resort Alona Beach in Panglao, Bohol this Thursday. It will be streamed live on KTX.PH.

Missosology, a long-running pageant website with one million followers, chose Dimaranan as its top pick candidate to represent the country in the international stage of the competition.

“After the preliminaries (national costume, interview, swimsuit and evening gown), our panel of experts and correspondents sat down to discuss who among the contestants the Philippines’ best bets for Miss Universe,” read its post on September 28.

In its list, the top five bets are:

  1. Taguig – Katrina Dimaranan
  2. Pangasinan – Maureen Christa Wroblewitz
  3. Cebu Province – Steffi Rose Aberasturi
  4. Cebu City – Beatrice Luigi Gomez
  5. Cavite – Victoria Velasquez Vincent

Instagram page Miss U Updates with 137,000 followers similarly picked Dimaranan. The blogger described the Taguig representative as someone who radiates “experience.”

“Taguig @katrina_dimaranan just radiates ‘experience’, and screams ‘prepared and ready’ which is why I think she’s the one to be sent this year with less than 2 months of preparation left until jetting off to MU,” the post read.

“Why Katrina? She is ready, anytime and anywhere! What PH needs right now is someone who can carry the full weight of Filipino pageantry might, someone who can deliver the goods with such limited time on her hand plus she can carry the double edge sword of Filipino fandom, the craziness, the enthusiasm and the passion and obsession of pageant fans,” Sash Factor said.
