Michelle Dee is a step closer to winning the head-to-head challenge of Miss World, where candidates are asked to talk about their respective advocacies.
The Filipina beauty queen emerged as the winner in her group, beating representatives from Rwanda, Aruba, Dominican Republic, and Ghana.
Dee and 19 others are set to compete for the 10 guaranteed slots in the Miss World finals in London on Saturday.
She will go head-to-head with Miss World Turkey in the next round.
