Miss Philippines put up a great effort to win the crown, wowing the judges and audience with her poise, grace and class. She also slayed the Q&A portion. But it was not to be for Elizabeth Clenci. Still, she deserves our congratulations for being the lone Asian contestant in the Top 5.

Third runner up is Miss Puerto Rico while Miss Czech Republic is fourth runner-up.
