“I really just want to say, from the bottom of my heart, thank you so much. All your love and your support every year, for the past few years, has been so moving and so heartwarming and has been one of those driving factors that really kept me going and that really drove me to always want to become a better and transformed self. So to all of you, thank you, thank you so much,” said Amelinckx, who also won Miss Universe Philippines Charity in 2022. 

“This journey is meaningful to me because I had so many firsts. I want to share I had my first airplane ride, I had my first private island tour, I had my first Boracay, and all of those experiences are so meaningful to me. I’m just really in gratitude right now and I’m looking forward to representing the Philippines on the international stage, Miss Charm, and I hope that I can make you all proud,” Gravidez said. 

The separate awarding ceremony took place after the coronation night on Saturday, May 13, where Michelle Dee (Makati) won the highly coveted Miss Universe Philippines crown

Christine Opiaza (Zambales) was named first runner-up, followed by Angelique Manto (Pampanga) who won second runner-up.
