Michelle Dee declared that she’s giving “200% of herself” in representing the Philippines in Miss Universe 2023 this coming November, saying she will do her best to not have any sort of flaws in her pageant bid.

Dee, who’s flying off to El Salvador at the “end of the month,” said in a 24 Oras interview that she’s been preparing for the global tilt “almost every day.”


“Tuloy ang training almost every day (I’ve been training almost every day). We also have requirements to fulfill, and responsibilities with our sponsors. If you see my schedule this month, puno talaga (it’s really full). But of course, we have to know how to choose our priorities,” she said.


The beauty queen then revealed in an interview with GMA’s Unang Balita that her gowns would be designed by Mark Bumgarner, although she didn’t give any hint about her preliminary or coronation gown.

Bumgarner was the creator behind Dee’s black evening gown during the coronation night of the Miss Universe Philippines 2023 pageant, where she bagged the Best in Evening Gown award.

“Let’s just say na same siya sa Miss Universe Philippines 2023. It’s Mark Bumgarner, of course. He knows what I want to achieve. He knows the vision. I truly believe that the gown will become iconic afterwards,” she said.

“I’m giving it everything that I have. Two hundred percent of myself, I’m dedicating it to my crown. I’m working on the different aspects of my campaign just to make sure that when I fly to El Salvador, I’m 100% ready. Walang mahahanap na butas (There would not be any loopholes),” she further said.

The crossover beauty queen is vying for the Philippines’ fifth Miss Universe crown after Gloria Diaz, Margarita Moran, Pia Wurtzbach, and Catriona Gray.

Reigning titleholder and Filipina-American stunner R’Bonney Gabriel will pass her crown to her successor at the end of the pageant, which is scheduled on Nov. 18. EDV
