MANILA, Philippines — The Miss Universe Philippines Organization formally presented its official 2024 lineup of its annual national search.

In a social media post, the organization wrote, “Hello, Philippines! Mabuhay! Meet the much talked-about delegates of the Miss Universe Philippines 2024 competition… Tomorrow, the stars shine brighter than ever in our Universe.”

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, because 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.
