In 1991, Anjanette Palencia Abayari was crowned as Binibining Pilipinas-Universe but dethroned because she was an American citizen. Alou Gonzales, that year's Bb. Pilipinas-Maja International replaced her as Miss Philippines in the Miss Universe pageant held in Las Vegas, Nevada.
^ In 1998, Olivia Tisha Carlos Silang was crowned as Binibining Pilipinas-Universe, but dethroned due to her Canadian citizenship. Jewel May Lobaton, the first runner-up, was selected as the Philippine representative in the Miss Universe pageant held in Honolulu, Hawaii.
^3 In 1999, Janelle Delfin Bautista was crowned Binibining Pilipinas-Universe, but was dethroned because of citizenship issues. Miriam Redito Quiambao, the Binibining Pilipinas-World was asked to assume the title.
^4 In 2010, Maria Venus Raj, the winner of Binibining Pilipinas Universe 2010 was dethroned due to "inconsistencies" between her birth certificate and the personal account of her birth and for a few days was replaced by Helen Nicolette Henson, the 2nd runner-up of the same pageant. Politicians criticized the pageant's decision of dethroning Venus Raj[1] and not immediately replacing her with the first runner-up[2] On April 10, 2010, the Binibining Pilipinas Charities, Inc. (BPCI) reversed their decision allowing Raj to reclaim her title pending correction of the minor technicalities or clerical error contained on her birth record and obtainment of a valid Philippine passport.
^5 In 2011, the Miss Universe-Philippines 2012 Janine Marie Tugonon placed 1st runner-up in Binibining Pilipinas 2011 edition but refused the placement and joined Binibining Pilipinas 2012 where she won the top crown.
