MANILA -- After a series of challenges, Miss Universe Philippines has trimmed down the 100 delegates to the final 30 candidates who will vie for the title on coronation night. 

On Wednesday, the Miss Universe Philippines organization named the final list of who survived several elimination processes of this year’s competition led by three fan favorites: Maureen Wroblewitz, Kisses Delavin, and Steffi Aberasturi. 

Joining the final cut were pageant veterans Miss Supranational 2018 first runner-up Katrina Dimaranan and Miss Globe 2019 second runner-up Leren Bautista. 

Maria Corazon Abalos, who was proclaimed winner of the headshot challenge, and Beatrice Luigi Gomez, who topped the introduction challenge, were also included in the list. Victoria Velasquez Vincent, the winner of the interview challenge, also made it to the finals. 

The 30 candidates will get to compete on stage for the Miss Universe Philippines 2021 crown on September 25.

Organizers said that from there, it will be "back to zero with a different set of judges."
