Miss Universe 2017 kicked off in Manila, Philippines and the competition further heated up as host Steve Harvey announced the Top 13.

After the 86 candidates had a glimpse of several tourist spots in the Philippines and experienced the hospitality of the country’s people, the actual competition was underway. Harvey called in the Top 13 one by one.

The first country that was called in was Kenya. The candidate was the first from Kenya who made it to the Top 13 of the most prestigious beauty pageant in the world.

Here’s the list of the Top 13 of the Miss Universe 2016.

Kenya

Indonesia

USA

Mexico

Peru

Panama

Colombia

Philippines

Canada

Brazil

France

Haiti

Thailand

One of these women will be Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach’s successor. According to Harvey, 1 million votes from viewers got in for this year’s candidates. Miss Philippines Maxine Medina received the most applause while Harvey said, “I can’t believe this is happening again.”

Harvey’s statement comes after Miss Colombia and Miss Philippines’ announcement to the Top 13 came back to back. Both candidates making it to the top opens the possibility for Miss Universe 2017 repeating history. The ladies were graceful in thanking Steve Harvey, despite his nervousness.

The Top 13 candidates were judged based on the preliminary competition held last Thursday at the Mall of Asia Arena in Manila. The judges included Miss Universe winners Dayanara Torres and Riyo Mori, producer and activist Francine LeFrak, and Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey. World-renowned marketing director Rob Goldstone and People’s Choice Awards President Fred Nelson also joined the judges’ panel.

In today’s grand coronation day, Torres, Bailey, LeFrak, and Mori are coming back to judge the contestants. Miss Universe winners Sushmita Sen, Leila Lopes, and fashion magazine PAPER editorial director Mickey Boardman will also sit in the panel.

Steve Harvey’s return

Meanwhile, Steve Harvey once again apologized for the mistake he made in December 2015. At the time, the Family Feud host accidentally crowned Miss Columbia Ariadna Gutiérrez as the winner instead of Wurtzbach.

Tune in to the 65th Miss Universe happening now at the SM Mall of Asia Arena. Catch the live streaming at the official website of the pageant. The two-hour event will also stream online via the Miss U app and the official Facebook page of the pageant.
