From 12 candidates, they were deduced to 5 finalists. The top 5 ladies then took turns to answer this question:  “If you were to take Pope Francis to dinner in Cebu, who would be your Cebuano guests and why?”

“If I were to take Pope Francis for dinner here in Cebu, I would take with me the students of Cebu. Because our students are the hope of our future and our Pope Francis is the hope of our country. Therefore we can talk about how we can strengthen, unify,  and share love and respect so we can encourage our citizens to take part and make a change here in our society,”  answered effortless and confidently by the Mass Communication graduate Wynonah to the final question which won her the title .

Her court are Ms. Ma. Genefe B. Navilon (1st Runner-Up),   Ms. Aivy Mae R. Castro (2nd Runner-up), Ms. Lucena Rose M. Magdadaro (3rd Runner-up ) and  Ms. Domenic L. Reynes (4th Runner-up .)
