Bernadette, Gerlie and Monique, the BPCI said, are among those who achieved the next highest ratings culled from the series of screenings it conducted.

In effect, there are still 40 official candidates [view the updated list] who will vie for the Bb. Pilipinas-Universe and Bb. Pilipinas-International crowns during the coronation on April 10th despite the removal from the roster of Grendel Alvardo, Jen Olivar and Roxanne Cabanero apparently due to their nude photos spreading in the internet.

Grendel and Jenilyn were reportedly disqualified while Cabanero had resigned over photo scandal issues.
