Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, January 22) — Miss World has announced its top 40 finalists, with the Philippines' Tracy Maureen Perez securing a spot to win the crown in the pageant finale in March.

Perez is among the 15 "fast track winners," the pageant organization said in a Facebook post.

In December, the Cebuana beauty made it to the top five of Miss World's Beauty with a Purpose challenge for her advocacy that aims to empower single parents.

The organization will also finance her project, Perez earlier said.

She also secured a spot in the Top 30 for winning the second round of the Head to Head challenge.

If the 28-year-old Perez wins, she would bring the country's second Miss World crown after Megan Young in 2013.

The Miss World coronation night will be held on March 16, 2022, at the José Miguel Agrelot Coliseum in Puerto Rico.
