Celeste Cortesi of Pasay City has been named Miss Universe Philippines 2022. 

Cortesi reigned supreme among the 31 contestants at the pageant. She was crowned by her predecessor Beatrice Luigi Gomez, who had a Top 5 finish at the Miss Universe 2021 finals

Cortesi—who is set to represent the country to the 71st Miss Universe—was followed by Michelle Dee of Makati City (Miss Universe Philippines - Tourism), Pauline Amelinckx of Bohol (Miss Universe Philippines – Charity), Annabelle Mae McDonnell of Misamis Oriental (1st runner-up), and Ma. Katrina Llegado of Taguig (2nd runner-up).

This isn’t Cortesi’s first major beauty pageant. In 2018, she was the country’s bet to the Miss Earth pageant. She concluded her journey to the highly coveted crown in the Top 8.

The Miss Universe Philippines 2022 coronation night was held on Saturday, April 30 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena. It was hosted by past Miss U titleholders Pia Wurtzbach (2015), Iris Mittenaere (2016), and Demi-Leigh Tebow (2017).
