The Philippines is leading the Miss Earth beauty pageant with four wins in 2008, 2014, 2015, and last year, which is 2017. Karla Henry, Jamie Herrel, Gabriela Ong, and Karen Ibasco just made a quadruple victory to elevate the status of the Philippines as the most successful country in Miss Earth beauty pageant since its debut in 2001. The Philippines only failed to reach the semifinals round twice since 2001. These are the years 2010 and 2016, which makes the country to have a rare stance for being included in the semifinalist round of the pageant.
This year's representative is now aiming for a possible back-to-back win for the country for Miss Earth 2018. Celeste Cortesi is hoping that she could be the fifth woman to win Miss Earth 2018 in her parent's hometown, the Philippines. She is aware that it is a challenge for the Philippines to win another crown since the reigning winner comes from the Philippines. If optimism speaks, it will not be a problem if a country could win more crown, especially that Celeste is from a country that is equipped with numerous beauty pageant camps, fashion designers, and sponsors to fully support her beauty pageant journey.

If Celeste will win, there will be another wave of backlash towards the Miss Earth Organization. One main reason is that the pageant can be a hotbed of criticisms since it is operated by a Filipino staff, speculating favoritism to a fellow countryman. In this regard, Celeste will surely experience numerous unfavorable reactions from pageant fans. As an expectation, there will be a higher level of undesirable comments and feedbacks towards Celeste than her predecessor, Karen Ibasco. Even if the judging is fair and square during the course of the competition.
In this period of the 21st century, the Philippines already proved its prowess as one of the major countries that consistently place in almost all beauty pageants around the world. Each year, the country bags at least one or two international crowns since 2013, making it a serious competitor in the world of pageantry. However, there are other countries to watch out for in order to win the crown. They are the delegates of Portugal, Nepal, Indonesia, Colombia, Mexico, Venezuela, USA, Brazil, Vietnam, Nigeria, Slovenia, and the People's Republic of China.
