Street smart queen made it to the finale as Odessa Jones declared the 9th queen to join the list of finalists. Despite her age and having less teeth, she is smart and witty. Her answers on 'wit lang' were unexpected to be amazing since she always choose sides which are few to be picked by candidates, yet she were able to defend it wonderfully. She is a veteran drag queen (on her time) appearing on different TV shows before; like performing some Grace Jones songs. Odessa is, as well, loved by many fans.

There is one more candidate that will be joining the list of finalists who is not yet revealed since the voting is still ongoing. Who among the semi-finalists who failed to make it to the finale will return as as a finalist?

A total of 10 grand candidates competing for one crown & a trophy, ₱500,000 worth of plastic surgery, a paid trip for two to Thailand, and ₱1 million tax free.

This will be the most elegant gay pageant on TV where intelligence wrapped the physical beauty, telling everyone that there is equality on whatever faces you may see.
