Like last year, eight titles are to given away this season, together with two runners-up titles. Of the 2021 titleholders, there are still two who have yet to compete at their respective international pageants - Shaira Rebortera for the Miss Multinational in India next month and Trisha Martinez for Miss Tourism International. The date and venue of the latter pageant is yet to be determined and arranged.

Of the 2019 queens, it was Miss Multinational Philippines Isabela de Leon who was not able to compete, due to the global pandemic that necessitated the cancellation of the international pageant finals for the years 2020 and 2021.

The Miss World-Philippines 2022 coronation night is scheduled to unfold on June 5 is SM Mall of Asia Arena.
