Delavin’s fellow candidates who also made it to the top 15 of the challenge include Steffi Rose Aberastusi, Katrina Dimaranan, Leren Mae Bautista, Maria Corazon Abalos, Kamille Alyssa Quinola, Noelyn Rose Campos, Cheri Angel Anne Flejores, Angela Nikki de Grano, Gianne Kryssee Tecson Asuncion, Isabelle de los Santos, Mirjan Hipolito and Princess Kristha Singh.
Votes were cast through Miss Universe Philippines’s official app from Aug. 2 to Aug. 6. The organization stated through an earlier Instagram post that social media engagements had no bearing in the selection of its winners.
Delavin, who represents Masbate, talked about her work as an actress and performer in her introduction video. She also gushed over her love for food.
“A fun fact about me is that I am a food lover. I love rice, I love ulam, all kinds of ulam, and everything in between,” she said.
The Miss Universe Philippines Organization is having its delegates will go through a series of challenges to determine who will advance further into the competition. Each challenge will trim the roster until only 30 delegates remain.
All final candidates can be seen at the live coronation ceremony on Sept. 25. JB
