Daniele Nanni, Hobert Lanham, Michael Kogan, Mirza Jasarevic, Robert Nichols and Russell Taylor were originally selected as alternates. (Names listed in alphabetical order.)

Viktor Svindland, a Top 32 contestant, elected to drop out of the competition, and two original Top 32 contestants were disqualified, allowing Daniele Nanni, Michael Kogan and Robert Nichols to advance from alternate to the Top 32.

Dwayne Monroe did not submit a country, and neither did Mirza Jasarevic, the next alternate in line, so Russell Taylor has advanced to the Top 32. Hobert Lanham is now the sole remaining alternate.
