Pilipinas-Universe last April 10, 2011 through the 2011 Binibining Pilipinas pageant and took over the crown from the 2010 winner and Miss Universe 2010 fourth runner-up Venus Raj.

The gorgeous contestants are now in Brazil for the big event and for the first time in the history of the Miss Universe, the organizers have allowed online voting. The candidate with the most number of votes will have an automatic spot in the top 15 finalist. Miss Universe 2010 from Mexico, Ximena Navarrete will crown the next Miss Universe on the pageant night. According to the Miss Universe organizers, the outcome of the online poll will give one fortunate contestant a spot in the semifinals. But it’s not the contestant with the highest number of votes but the one with the highest AVERAGE who gets a spot in the Miss Universe 2011 semifinals. Last year, an online poll was also conducted in the contest. However, it had no bearing on the results as it was probably a test run for this year. Venus Ray, Miss Philippines in last year’s event, got the most number of votes.
