MANILA -- A poll held to decide which among the 40 candidates of the Mutya Pilipinas pageant deserves to be called the "People's Choice" was opened this Wednesday.
The contestants were presented in beautiful black-and-white photos, all of which can be seen in the Facebook post below:
It remains unclear what being the "People's Choice" means during the coronation night of the pageant, scheduled for August 18 at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.
The winners of the Mutya Pilipinas, formerly known as the Mutya ng Pilipinas, will represent the country in the World Top Model, Miss Asia Pacific International, and Miss Tourism International pageants.
