The Miss Universe Philippines (MUPH) organization revealed in a video posted on Wednesday, April 6, that 32 of the 50 candidates have made it through to the finals.
According to host Nico Locco, the panelists chose these 30 beauties according to their performance in the online challenges.

During the initial screening, the candidates went through six different online challenges for three weeks: the headshot challenge, introduction challenge, swimsuit challenge, fashion and runway challenge, casting video challenge, and interview challenge. Their application videos were submitted via the streaming platform kumu as part of their requirement.
Meanwhile, the other two, Shawntel Cruz of Benguet and Davao del Norte’s Jeanne Nicci Orcena, won through the streaming platform Kumu. They will be advancing with the other 30 to the pageant’s in-person coronation. Cruz was named Kumunity’s Choice.
