MANILA, Philippines — Pasay’s Celeste Cortesi bested 31 other finalists to emerge as the Miss Universe Philippines 2022 held at the SM Mall of Asia Arena tonight. 

Raised in Italy, Celeste won the Miss Philippines Earth title in 2018.

At the question and answer segment, Celeste was asked by host Pia Wurtzbach: “If you could stop time for a day, how would you spend it?” 

“If I could stop time, I will spend it with my family, especially my mother. It's been two years since I didn't see my family because they live in Italy and I came here in the Philippines just by myself. So if I had a chance to spend one day I would definitely be with my mom. And I will tell her how much I love her and miss her,” she answered.  

Hosted by Miss Universe queens Pia Wurtzbach, Iris Mittenaere and Demi-Leigh Tebow, the pageant hailed other winners such as:

End Of The Year Review - Pageantry In 2021

  And the winner is... Miss Quasi-Normal. Runners-up include Miss Apartheid Universe and Miss Covid World.         2021 pageantry was characterized by a gradual return to normalcy as pageant competitions – which had been cancelled or postponed in 2020 due to the Coronavirus pandemic – succeeded in staging physical productions while paying close attention to universal safety guidelines. Even major events like the Tokyo Summer Olympics, which was cancelled in 2020, successfully took place in 2021. Miss Universe and Miss Grand International held two editions (one each for 2020 and 2021), The Miss World finals was postponed for March 2022 after several contestants had tested positive for COVID-19 in Puerto Rico which hosts the pageant.
