Bb. Pilipinas-Universe queens from 1964 to 2019 and their Miss Universe placements

Starting 2020, the representative of the Philippines to Miss Universe will be selected through a standalone beauty pageant called Miss Universe Philippines. Before this, the representative was chosen through Binibining Pilipinas, which gives more than one crown annually.

Through Bb. Pilipinas, the Philippines produced four Miss Universe winners. Gloria Diaz, Margarita Moran, Pia Wurtzbach and Catriona Gray won nationally and internationally in 1969, in 1973, in 2015 and in 2018, respectively.

Bb. Pilipinas-Universe has been the most coveted title in Philippine pageantry from 1964 to 2019. Here is the complete list of the titleholders and their respective placements in Miss Universe:
