(5). Rachel forgot to make a smize factor during the evening gown competition. Many fans observe that Rachel's facial expression was totally blank during the top 10 evening gown competition. She only showed one facial expression, which did not complement her gown.

(7). The stage presence of Rachel was strong during the first part of the competition. She exudes a high level of confidence level with her infinity walk as well as her elegant way of presenting her gown competition during the prelims. During the coronation night, her stage presence was different during the evening gown competition. She lacked energy and strong stage aural power when she was given the chance to display one of the best creations of Val Taguba and kept looking on the floor like invisibly singing "on the floor" by Jennifer Lopez. Until she wasn't able to execute her pose well because the host already announced the next candidate to slay on stage.

(8). Many are objecting the gown design of Miss Universe Philippines 2017, Rachel Peters. The gown is elegant, the cut is well defined, and the overall design implies elegance.

The design is similar to Rachel Peter's evening gown, which made Rachel Peters as Kristal 2.0 during the top 10 presentations of creative evening dresses.

(9). Rachel Peters failed to execute a strong pose that should have been her final statement during the evening gown competition. It was observed that she was not sure on what will be her pose as she approached closer to the judges during the gown competition. This is brought about by the complications of nervousness, very fast track presentation of the candidates, and the wild card effect towards her. She became confused on which pose she will be displaying to the judges, losing their interest to make a good mark on her at that point.

(10). Unity factor is another reason why it can affect the performance of candidates when sending them to international competitions. There is an obvious rivalry between the beauty pageant camps in the Philippines wherein candidates are handled by one pageant camp to international competition. The problem is that if that candidate was trained by a particular camp, other camps should not interfere with their own strategies due to fastidiousness, pride, and fame. This is an issue that crumbles the unity of Filipinos because they try to take against each other, risking the essence of unity. If their candidate fails to win, blaming game sparks by an uninvolved camp to an involved beauty camp.
