With less than a month away from its coronation night, Miss Universe Philippines 2022 continues to go all out in what could be the pageant's grandest finale yet. This year, Miss Universe 2021 Harnaaz Kaur Sandhu is gracing the event as one of its special guests.
The news was announced by Miss Universe Philippines Organization in a social media post today, April 9.
"A #UniquelyBeautiful historic event in the making! Miss Universe 2021 Harnaaz Kaur Sandhu is one of our very special guests for the Miss Universe Philippines 2022 Finals on April 30, at the SM Mall of Asia Arena!" it says in the caption.
"The whole country is excited to welcome our Miss Universe flying on Air Beauty One," the organization added.
In a separate Facebook post, pageant media portal The Philippine Pageantry revealed that Air Beauty One is the "counterpart of USA's presidential plane 'Air Force One.'"
It is owned by Narvacan Mayor Luis "Chavit" Singson and will be used to fly Harnaaz from India to the Philippines in time for MUPH's April 30 event.
Beauty pageant aficionados couldn't help but express their excitement for this year's event.
Apart from Harnaaz, Miss Universe Philippines 2022 will feature queens Pia Wurtzbach (2015), Iris Mittenaere (2016), and Demi-Leigh Tebow (2017) as hosts.
"Wow! The most exciting edition ng MUPH!!!" one Facebook user said.
Another one commented, "Expected na maganda yung productions and all [fire emojis]. Super excited for this year!!!"
"Wow what a pasabog MUPH," a netizen quipped.
"JUSKOOOO waaah for sure once ilabas ang ticket sold out agad! Hahahaha," one user commented.
The organization will crown the next Filipina to compete for the international title on April 30 at the SM Mall of Asia Arean in Pasay City.
