The Miss Universe Philippines (MUPH) organization finally unveiled its top 50 delegates who will vie for the crown for the 2022 edition of the prestigious beauty pageant.

According to reports, they were chosen from a group of applicants who were shortlisted and went through an online interview screening over the weekend.

Among those who entered the top 50 are former national pageant titleholders, popular frontrunners from previous national pageants, provincial beauty queens and professionals with sterling backgrounds and credentials.

“This is a highly-competitive batch. We can see a number of the girls actually giving us a good chance of winning our fifth Miss Universe crown eventually, but for now, it’s really going to be anybody’s ballgame,” an unidentified source was quoted as saying to a news outlet.

The 50 delegates will undergo a series of challenges to prove themselves worthy of the crown. The coronation is set on April 30, 2022.

The winner will succeed Miss Universe Philippines 2021 Beatrice Luigi Gomez and participate in the upcoming 71st edition of Miss Universe.

MUPH said that it will further narrow down the delegates to 30.

“This also allows our Accredited Partners and their teams to hone in on fewer women and give them maximum support in the online challenges and preparations,” it said on a Facebook post.

Filipinos can get to know the chosen 50 through a Kumu livestream.
