A hundred girls auditioned for the competition out of which twenty-five had been selected as semifinalists and only eight of them will be joining the reality show.

Managing director of Yugen Group and Miss Universe Bahrain organization Ian Borromeo added that the organization “hopes to find a woman who is armored with her purpose in life and wishes to use the Miss Universe Bahrain platform to amplify her messages and advocacies.”
