Congratulations to Beatrice Luigi Gomez , 26, representing Cebu City, for being crowned Miss Universe Philippines 2021 on September 30 . An openly member of the LGBTQIA community, she will now represent the Philippines in Miss Universe 2021 pageant in Eilat, Israel in December. I was actually very surprised by her win as she wasn’t even on my list. Goes to show you that pageants could be unpredictable. Katrina Dimaranan of Taguig, whom most fans have predicted to be the winner, ended up placing second and winning the Miss Universe Philippines Tourism 2021 title. She will succeed Beatrice if the latter is unable to fulfill her duties as MUPH 2021. Victoria Velasquez of Cavite was crowned Miss Universe Philippines Charity 2021. The first runner-up is Maureen Wroblewitz of Pangasinan. And the second runner-up is another crowd favorite, Steffi Aberasturi of Cebu Province.
