Miss Universe this year follows the same format from last year.
From 94 candidates, the selection committee will trim it down to 20 semi-finalists. They will pick five candidates from the three major continents (Europe, The Americas and Africa and Asia Pacific). And then they will pick five wild cards.
The Philippines made it to the semi-finals. Below is the complete list:
Africa and Asia Pacific
- South Africa
