Miss Universe Philippines 2021 prediction: 13 most promising candidates

The 2021 batch of Miss Universe Philippines has to be the most competitive group of Filipino beauty pageant candidates I have seen in the past few years. It is a pity there is only one crown at stake while there are more than 10 candidates who deserve a title.

Miss Universe Philippines 2020 Rabiya Occeña Mateo, 24, of Iloilo, Philippines will crown her successor on September 25, 2021. On July 19, 2021, the list of 100 Miss Universe Philippines 2021 candidates was unveiled.

It is too early to predict who among the candidates is most likely to become Mateo’s successor. With the limited knowledge I have about them, these are the 13 candidates who I believe are the most promising ones:
