April has come, which only means one thing for pageant fans—the month-long countdown to Miss Universe Philippines 2022 has begun! Although the journey is coming to a close, it was not without its difficulties.

For this year’s edition, the pageant started with 50 delegates from all over the country. After that, they were given a set of online challenges to put their skills and training to the test. At the end of each challenge, the Top 3 will be selected by fan votes and a panel of judges.

These challenges will help determine the Final 30 who would go on and continue their fight for the crown. We’ll meet them in a few days, but for now, here’s a quick overview of the previous challenge winners.
