I think it's unhybridized orbital because of electrons like to spread out as much as they can before having to be spin paired with another electron, so they will fill up the unhybridized first before they spin pair.
An electron will prefer to occupy the unhybridized orbital because it takes less energy for the electron to be in the higher p orbital since the electron repulsion as a spin pair in a hybridized orbital would be too unstable.
