This year's Miss Universe pageant gets more exciting as the days go by!
After their activities in Ilocos Sur and Boracay last weekend, and at the Governor's Ball last January 16, the candidates flew to Cebu to meet the Little Miss Universe girls, and flaunt their beach-ready figures at the Yamamay Swimsuit Competiton on January 17.

Held at JPark Island Resort and Waterpark in Lapu-Lapu City, the contestants wore one-piece swimsuits with different cuts and designs, each complementing their figure. Among those present during the competition are Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach and Miss Universe Organization Vice President Shawn McClain.
We chose 20 of our favorites from the competition, including our very own Maxine Medina. Who is your pick for Best in Swimsuit?
