Technical Problems In Miss Universe Philippines 2023
Technical issues hounded the Miss Universe Philippines 2023 pageant. It happened during the evening gown competition.
The names of the Top 10 were already announced prior to the short break.
After the short break, host Xian Lim announced that there were “technical issues” in terms of the scores of the candidates. For this reason, the Top 18 finalists had to come back on stage and go through again the evening gown competition.
Xian said in his announcement: “To everyone watching here tonight and to everyone watching at home via online streaming we have an announcement to make. This is gonna make tonight a little interesting.
“Due to technical issues, we’ve resulted to manual tallying, which means, our Top 18 candidates will go through the evening gown and compete for the Top 5.”
