A lot of Pinoys flew to Bangkok to support her as evident in the loud cheer from the crowd everytime she is on stage.

A new process was introduced this year in choosing the top 20. The girls were grouped into three based on their continents – Africa and Asia Pacific, Europe, and The Americas. Five girls from each group were chosen to enter the top 20, plus five wildcards.

Miss Philippines Catriona Gray was the second to be called from Africa and Asia Pacific, receiving loud cheers from the crowd.

After the top 20, a new round was again introduced – the girls’ opening statement. The round aims to enable the contestants to let the judges and the audience know a little more about them.

Miss South Africa was named 1st runner-up, while Miss Venezuela was 2nd runner-up.
