The preliminary scores are very crucial alongside with the closed-door interview in determining the Top 15 Semi-finalists which will be revealed on the coronation night come December 20th (Monday morning in Manila and Bangkok).
For 5 consecutive years (from 2010 to 2014), the Philippines maintained its Semi-final placement in Miss Universe. And for 4 years in a row, the country has managed to place in the Top 5 until last year. What do you think are Pia's chances now? Does her preliminary performance equate a Semi-final spot? Or will she be able to bring back the Philippines in the winning circle this time?
