Miss World was supposed to be held last Dec. 17 in Puerto Rico, but was postponed due to health and safety reasons. Seventeen contestants and personnel of the beauty pageant reportedly tested positive for COVID-19 in December.

The pageant date was moved to March 16, 2022, still at the Puerto Rico Coliseum Jose Miguel Agrelot.

Perez hopes to win the second Miss World crown for the Philippines, following Miss World 2013 Megan Young. The Cebuana beauty queen has been picked as a frontrunner in the competition by global pageant observers.  /ra
