Twenty-eight different candidates stepped forward in the competition with statements such as, "My name is Luciana Fernández and I represent the city of Huánuco, and my measurements are: 13,000 girls suffer sexual abuse in our country."

Miss Peru 2018 winner Romina Lozano also said, “I represent the constitutional province of Callaomy and my measurements are: 3,114 women victims of trafficking up until 2014.”
