The newly hailed Miss Universe PH 2022 is also this year’s Miss PLDT Home!

Celeste Cortesi of Pasay City won Miss Universe Philippines 2022, beating out 31 other competitors with her distinctive beauty, humor, and love for her causes. The Filipina-Italian beauty has also been named the new Miss PLDT Home.


Cortesi, 24, is no stranger to pageants, having represented the Philippines in the Miss Earth competition in 2018. Cortesi triumphed on the Miss Universe Philippines stage this year with grace, intellect, and authenticity. "I am thrilled to be a member of the Miss Universe Philippines Organization," she says. I will collaborate with them to strengthen my advocacy for women's education as well as the safeguarding of our country's indigenous peoples and rich cultural heritage."


Aside from her causes, Cortesi demonstrates that she is a queen with a strikingly lovely heart. She has been open about her love and concern for her family during the Miss Universe Philippines event. "My parents have taught me the importance of thankfulness and friendliness to everyone I encounter since I was a child." "I always feel that being appreciative generates a ripple effect that brings out the best in others."


Cortesi further emphasized the importance of strong bonds with family and loved ones. In her winning answer at the final question and answer portion, she said, “If I could stop time, I would spend it with my family, especially my mother. It’s been two years since I haven’t spent time with my family because they live in Italy, and I came here in the Philippines just by myself. If I had a chance to spend one day, I would definitely be with my mom, and I would just tell her how much I love her and I miss her.”


As the newest PLDT Home Ambassador, Cortesi shows that strong connections can powerfully conquer distances. After winning the Miss Universe Philippines title, she even shared a heartwarming tribute for her mom on social media with the caption: “Far from each other, but always connected. To make you proud is the greatest fulfillment of my life.”


Joining Cortesi as this year’s Miss Universe Philippines titleholders are Miss Universe Philippines Tourism Michelle Marquez Dee, Miss Universe Philippines Charity, Pauline Cucharo Amelinckx, Miss Universe Philippines 1st runner-up Annabelle McDonnell, and Miss Universe Philippines 2nd runner-up Ma. Katrina Llegado. 


PLDT Home is the official broadband partner of Miss Universe Philippines. As the fastest and most powerful internet connection in the country, PLDT Home has been enabling families – just like Cortesi’s – to do things better and to build stronger and more meaningful bonds at home. 


Cortesi will represent the Philippines at the Miss Universe 2022 pageant to be held in December in San José, California.
