Miss Millennial Philippines 2019 is the third edition of the beauty pageant for female beauty queens from the millennial generation. The segment premiered on 31 August 2019 and concluded on 26 October 2019.

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.

Nicole Yance Borromeo of Cebu was crowned as the grand winner of Miss Millennial Philippines 2019, making it a back-to-back victory for the province who also won last year's pageant.

Angela Maria Robson of Pampanga placed as first runner-up, while Annabelle Mae Tate McDonnell of Lanao del Norte won as second runner-up. Maica Cabling Martinez of Nueva Ecija bagged the title of third runner-up.


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. Representatives of Eat Bulaga! participated in the selection of some candidates as judges in the local beauty pageants.

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


All of the forty candidates of Miss Millennial Philippines were officially introduced on 31 August 2019.

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 candidates brought delicacies and other local dishes to share with the hosts and the studio audience. They also shared a trip itinerary on a ₱2,000 budget for viewers who may be interested in visiting the provinces. A short promotional video was shown during the interview to feature the rich culture and the various tourist destinations of the candidate's province. The professionally-produced videos were posted on the official YouTube channel and Facebook page of the noontime show.

Talent week

The talent week was held from 21 October to 25 October 2019. Eight candidates each day impressed the audience with their talent in the portion. The talent portion was a non-elimination round to determine who will receive the Best in Talent special award in the grand coronation day. It had no impact on the final results of the competition. The criteria for judging were as follows:

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

Prejudging round

The prejudging round was held on Wednesday, 23 October 2019. Hosted by Luane Dy, the nearly three-hour event was live streamed only on Eat Bulaga!'s official Facebook page after the live telecast of the noontime show. The prejudging round determined the Top 10 candidates in the grand coronation day.

The prejudging round was a question-and-answer portion where each candidate was given the same simple question:

  • How would you convince someone to visit your province?

Each candidate was given a particular person or group, ranging from a local farmer in Nueva Ecija to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, whom they must direct their marketing pitch to.

The judges included Reina Hispanoamericana 2017 Winwyn Marquez, fashion model Hideo Muraoka, Megasound Smart Pro Videoke CEO Ezekiel Kim, Miss International 2005 Precious Lara Quigaman-Alcaraz, Suzuki Philippines advertising assistant Lawrence Dimunahan, Mang Inasal assistant brand manager Julia Karina Palaad, Philippine Airlines international route marketing manager Lits Ong Cuevas, and Eat Bulaga! host Paolo Ballesteros. The criteria for judging were as follows:

  • 40% – Beauty and personality
  • 40% – Intelligence and wit
  • 20% – Digital presence

No decision was immediately announced at the end of the round. Announcement of the Top 10 was made on Saturday during the grand coronation day.

  • 50% – Intelligence and wit

For the final time, the forty candidates took their introductory walk during the opening presentation of the pageant. Each wore the sash and the crown of the local beauty pageant that they won prior to Miss Millennial Philippines.

The Top 10 finalists underwent a final question-and-answer portion. Their wit and intelligence were tested with video questions provided by several Filipino netizens from all over the world. The questions were hidden behind quirky online expressions which the candidates must select.

The first half of the portion was hosted by Paolo Ballesteros and Maine Mendoza, while the second half was hosted by Pia Guanio and Ryan Agoncillo.
