Wroblewitz, who represents Pangasinan, wore minimal makeup in the casting video where she talked about what makes her happy.
“My cats make me happy, and ice cream,” she said.
Votes were cast through Miss Universe Philippines’s official app from Aug. 16 to 20, the organization stated through an earlier Instagram post. It added that social media engagements had no bearing in the selection of its winners.
The challenge is the fourth since Miss Universe Philippines Organization announced its top 100. Each challenge will trim the roster until only 30 candidates remain.
The organization started with an initial list of 100 delegates, which was trimmed down to 75 earlier this month. It is set to announce its top 50 soon.
All final candidates can be seen at the live coronation ceremony on Sept. 25. JB
