Miss Millennial Philippines 2018 is the second edition of the beauty pageant for female beauty queens from the millennial generation. The segment premiered on 25 August 2018 and concluded on 27 October 2018.

Unlike typical beauty pageants, Miss Millennial Philippines places a great emphasis on the culture of the provinces and cities from which each of the forty candidates originated.

Throughout the pageant's run, candidates provided a tour of must-see destinations, showcased local delicacies, and promoted the world-renowned Filipino hospitality. The pageant's goal is to make Filipinos realize how beautiful the Philippines truly is.

Shaila Mae Rebortera of Cebu was crowned as the grand winner of Miss Millennial Philippines 2018, winning against thirty-nine other candidates.

Danna Rose Socaoco of Misamis Oriental placed as first runner-up, while Chanel Mistyca Villamor Corpuz of Abra won as second runner-up. Marrielle Sarmiento of Oriental Mindoro bagged the title of third runner-up. Meanwhile, Marela Glospeah Caro Juaman of South Cotabato was named as the Bayanihan Queen.

Overview

Contestant selection

Like last year, Eat Bulaga! tapped local pageant titleholders from across the Philippines and challenged them to represent their hometown in a competition that is first of its kind in local television.

The second pageant is part of Eat Bulaga!'s celebration of its upcoming 40th anniversary. Hence, the pageant featured a total of forty candidates from different provinces all over the Philippines.

Introduction

All of the forty candidates of Miss Millennial Philippines 2018 were officially introduced on 25 August 2018.

In the following weeks, the candidates appeared one by one on the noontime show for the public to get to know them and their provinces a little better. Each day, the Eat Bulaga! hosts interviewed the featured candidate of the day with a great emphasis on the beauty of their provinces. The candidate also brought delicacies and other local dishes to share with the hosts and the studio audience.

A short promotional video was also shown during the interview to feature the rich culture and the various tourist destinations of the candidate's province. The professionally-produced videos were later posted on the official YouTube channel of the noontime show.

Talent week

The talent portion was held for two weeks from Monday, 15 October to Thursday, 25 October 2018. Four candidates each day provided impressive performances in the portion. The talent portion was a non-elimination round to determine who will receive the Best in Talent special award. It had no impact on the results in the grand coronation day. The criteria for judging were as follows:

  • 40% – Execution
  • 40% – Stage presence and personality
  • 20% – Audience impact
