Four more queens were also crowned after Chelsea Manalo of Bulacan was proclaimed as the new Miss Universe Philippines at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City on May 22, their titles under the national pageant’s sister search The Miss Philippines.

Tarah Valencia of Baguio inherited the Miss Supranational Philippines crown from Alethea Ambrosio, winner of the first staging of The Miss Philippines Culture and Heritage Celebration held in the same arena in October last year.

Krishnah Gravidez, who was proclaimed as Miss Charm Philippines after finishing in the Top 3 of the 2023 Miss Universe Philippines pageant, relinquished her national title to Cyrille Payumo of Pampanga.


Alexie Mae Brooks from Iloilo City received the Miss Eco International Philippines title from Chantal Schmidt, a finalist in the first edition of The Miss Philippines search, and finished as first runner-up in the 2023 Miss Eco International pageant in Egypt in April.


A new title, Miss Cosmo Philippines, was awarded to pageant frontrunner Ma. Ahtisa Manalo of Quezon Province, and is set to represent the Philippines in the first staging of the Miss Cosmo pageant in Vietnam in October.

Ahtisa Manalo and Valencia were second and third runners-up, respectively, in the Miss Universe Philippines pageant, while Brooks and Payumo were in the Top 10.

The four new national titles were a surprise addition for the aspirants of the 2024 Miss Universe Philippines pageant, who joined the national competition knowing that only one title was at stake. It was announced only on May 13 that the ladies have more crowns to compete for.

Jonas Gaffud, head of Empire Philippines that mounts both the Miss Universe Philippines pageant and The Miss Philippines search, told that three of the four additional titles’ winners will compete in 2025.

Because Ambrosio is still scheduled to compete in the 15th Miss Supranational pageant in Poland in July, her successor will be reserved for the 2025 edition of the international competition.

This is also the case for Gravidez, whose participation in the second Miss Charm pageant is yet to be scheduled. Her national successor will only get to see action in the global arena next year.


And because Schmidt had just competed in the Miss Eco International pageant’s 2024 edition held last month, her successor will participate in the global competition’s 2025 edition.

Gaffud also mentioned that starting next year, all national titles under The Miss Philippines will be bestowed to winners who will be coming from the Miss Universe Philippines pageant.

Two more finalists from the first edition of The Miss Philippines had already received their titles in February, Miss Asia Pacific International Philippines Blessa Figueroa, and Miss Aura International Philippines Isabelle delos Santos. Semifinalist Hana Uyan was crowned as Miss Eco Teen International Philippines.

The three ladies will compete in their respective international pageants later this year. Their national successors will also be chosen from the candidates of the Miss Universe Philippines pageant next year.
