MANILA, Philippines — The stage is set for Miss Universe Philippines to crown its newest queen and set them on the path to further pageant glory.

With a number of highly qualified entrants in this year's competition, pageant aficionados are of the opinion that this batch will face a "bloodbath" before heralding a victor.

The high number of aspirants will necessitate a game plan that would cover all "bases" of the competition.

They include frontrunners who have already competed on the international stage and strong contenders who have done the rounds of competing in the national searches.

Here's hoping our national winner breaks the semis in Mexico (where this year's Miss Universe pageant will be held) as no Filipina delegate has placed in any of the four times — 1978, 1989, 1993, 2007 — that the Central American nation has hosted the international finals.

In alphabetical order, the 2024 candidates are:

  • Elaine Bernales (Albay)

Reigning queen Michelle Marquez Dee will crown her successor at the close of the coronation rites on May 22 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.
