If there are candidates who will be the next gem for Miss Universe Philippines 2020, it will be these two ladies. Maria Ahtisa Manalo and Patricia Magtanong who will soon vie for the first edition of MUP 2020. Pageant experts and fanatics want them to participate and will have an edge to edge competition for a quest to become the next representative of the Philippines for the upcoming Miss Universe 2020 beauty pageant. The question is, who will you support, Patricia Magtanong or Ahtisa Manalo to become the successor of Gazini Ganados?

Going through with Patricia Magtanong, she is one of the front runners of Binibining Pilipinas 2019. Patricia made a head to head competition with Gazini Ganados to become the strongest competitor to become the successor of Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray. Patricia then fell a bit short enough to receive the first runner-up placement that is the equivalent of Binibining Pilipinas-International 2018. Patricia then became the official representative of the Philippines for the Miss International 2019 competition. The lawyer representative managed to end up as one of the top 8 finalists of the pageant.

What makes Patricia Magtanong special about joining Miss Universe Philippines 2020? The main answer is her fresh beauty, which is her invisible advantage not only to Ahtisa but to other possible contestants of Miss Universe Philippines 2020. Patricia Magtanong is one of the few queens who is a licensed practicing lawyer after passing the Integrated Bar of the Philippines examination. For many, Patricia is the fresh face that people want to see and reign the world of pageantry.

Moving forward to Ahtisa Manalo, which is a heavy favorite to participate in Miss Universe Philippines 2020. During her stint in Binibining Pilipinas 2018, many are wondering who will be the toughest competitor of Catriona Gray. The answer is no other than Ahtisa Manalo, the silent competitor with a beauty that is comparable to the goddesses of the forest. Ahtisa represented the Philippines in Miss International 2018 and then placed as the first-runner up of Venezuela. She is the first Pinay to place as the first runner-up in Miss International 2018.

Ahtisa has one of the few that possesses an angelic face with elegance and poise. Her experience as a beauty queen is another advantage because she was already exposed to several local and regional beauty pageants before setting her foot in national and international beauty pageant stages. Ahtisa is still in her best form to become a hopeful to win Miss Universe Philippines, which can make her shine through the stage. Pageant fanatics are hopeful for her to finally submit her application to become one of the official candidates for Miss Universe Philippines 2020.

Recently, the Binibining Pilipinas Charities Incorporated announced it will no longer responsible for holding the franchise of Miss Universe Philippines. As a result, the Miss Universe Philippines franchise is now an independent organization with a new set of directors, sponsors, and supporters in the Philippines.

Shamcey Supsup is the rightful queen who will now hold the responsibility as the chairwoman of Miss Universe Philippines Organization. Shamcey is a product of Binibining Pilipinas and represented the Philippines in Miss Universe 2011. The ethereal queen placed as the 3rd runner up of Angola's Leila Lopes who won that year.

Next year, Miss Universe Philippines Organization will soon announce its new set of candidates. If these two queens will join Miss Universe Philippines 2020, who will you choose, Patricia or Ahtisa?
