MANILA, Philippines — Miss Universe Philippines 2023 Michelle Marquez Dee departed from Manila on St. Hallow's eve, en route to El Salvador, venue of the 72nd Miss Universe competition. Her mom, Miss International 1979 Melanie Marquez, will be watching her perform in San Salvador.

Fans and supporters are optimistic that Michelle will be victorious in her bid for the country's fifth crown. In the Miss Universe online poll, she is one of three delegates leading the fan vote for the Asian region. She shares the leader board with Anntonia Porsild of Thailand and Amara Bo of Myanmar.
