Here are the candidates that Erika personally wants to vie for the inaugural crown:

It must be noted that the age requirement for Miss Universe is 18 to 27 years old. Miss Universe contestants must be at least 18 years of age and under 28 years of age on the date the national pageant competition commenced.

Three of the women on this list are already 27. They will all be qualified if the Miss Universe Philippines 2020 coronation night takes places before they turn 28.

Following the tradition of Bb. Pilipinas, the national beauty pageant usually takes place either in March or April. Here are the dates when these possible candidates are turning 28:

  • Mutya Datul: April 17, 2020
  • Teresita Marquez: May 4, 2020
  • Katarina Rodriguez: August 1, 2020
