Our very own Rachel Peters is a true crowd favorite. During the preliminaries, Rachel has the loudest cheers from the crowd. The 26-year-old beauty debuted her “Infinity Walk”; much to the crowd’s delight.

The Fil-Brit contestant took the crowd by storm when she wore a classic black two-piece swimsuit by Yamamay for the swimswuit competition.

For the evening gown competition, Rachel wore a glamorous, sparkly gold ensemble by Val Taguba.

Rachel looks like a fierce goddess with her gold sarimanok-inspired national costume also by Val Taguba. She matched it gold gladiator heels designed by Jojo Bragais.

The preliminary contest is one of the “make or break” part of the competition. It will determine who will be included in the top 15 semifinals.
