Miss Universe Philippines 2022 is Celeste Cortesi of Pasay City

Miss Pasay City, Celeste Cortesi bested 31 other beauties to be crowned Miss Universe Philippines 2022 in a glittering competition held at the Mall of Asia Arena on Saturday, April 30.

The 24-year-old Filipino-Italian model also bagged the Miss Photogenic and Best in Swimsuit awards. She succeeds Beatrice Luigi Gomez of Cebu City and will now prepare to represent the Philippines at the Miss Universe 2022 pageant later this year.

Former Miss World Philippines Michelle Dee of Makati City was proclaimed Miss Universe Philippines Tourism while Pauline Amelinckx of Bohol clinched the Miss Universe Philippines Charity title.

Annabelle Mae McDonnell of Misamis Oriental and Maria Katrina Llegado were named the first and second runners-up, respectively.

The new Miss Universe Philippines is no stranger to pageantry. In 2018, she won Miss Philippines Earth and finished in the Top 8 at Miss Earth competition.

This year's Miss Universe Philippines edition gathered former Miss Universe winners Pia Wurtzbach, Iris Mittenaere, and Demi-Leigh Tebow as hosts while the reigning queen from India, Harnaaz Sandhu, was invited as a special guest and judge.
