Chelsea Manalo from Bulacan Crowned Miss Universe Philippines 2024

At the early Thursday, May 23, coronation event held at the Mall of Asia Arena, Bulacan native Chelsea Manalo won the prestigious Miss Universe Philippines 2024 title.

Over 52 competitors, many of whom were seasoned pageant participants, the native of Bulacan won victorious. The fourth-place runner-up was Christi McGarry from Taguig, followed by Maria Ahtisa Manalo from Quezon Province, Tarah Mae Valencia from Baguio, and Stacey Gabriel from Cainta in first place.

The Top 5 delegates that competed for the title of Miss Universe Philippines were eventually announced after the competition was reduced from 20 to 10. Stacey Gabriel (Cainta), Christi McGarry (Taguig), Chelsea Manalo (Bulacan), Tarah Mae Valencia (Baguio), and Maria Ahtisa Manalo (Quezon Province) were the Top 5.

Chelsea took first place in the Miss Jojo Bragais runway competition and made a strong impression during the preliminary interviews.

“As a woman of color, I have always faced challenges in my life. I was told that beauty has high standards. But I always believed in my mother’s advice to believe in myself and uphold my values. Because of this, I am already influencing many people who see me now. As a transformational woman, I stand here with 52 other delegates who have helped shape me into the woman I am. Thank you,” Manalo expressed during her Top 5 question-and-answer portion.
