Top favorite Karla Paula Henry from Cebu did not even manage to crack the top ten. Many pageant fanatics questioned the decision of Karla's non-inclusion. Few months after, she resurfaced at the Miss Philippines Earth pageant and won. Not only that, she also managed to win the Miss Earth that year, which made globalbeauties website remark, "the crown stays at home."
The eventual winner of Binibining Pilipinas World was highly questioned because Janina San Miguel did not even managed to answer the question very well, and oh, the wrong grammar. San Miguel said on national television: "Well, my family’s role for me is so important b’coz there was the wa- they’re, they was the one who’s… very… Hahahaha… Oh I’m so sorry, Ahhmm… My pamily… My family… Oh my god… I’m… Ok, I’m so sorry… I… I told you that I’m so confident… Eto, Ahhmm, Wait… Hahahaha, Ahmmm, Sorry guys because this was really my first pageant ever b’coz I’m only 17 years old and ahahaha I, I did not expect that I came from, I came from one of the tough 10. Hmmm, so… but I said dot my family is the most important persons in my life. Thank you."
Some of the Former Binibining Pilipinas title holders including former Miss International Precious Lara Quigaman was allegedly banned in the coronation night of the Binibining Pilipinas last 2009 at the Araneta Coliseum.
To add fuel to the controversy, the Philippine title holders who brought international pride like Gloria Diaz, Margie Moran and the other Miss International winners were given special citations. Interestingly, Precious Lara was not even mentioned.
And former Binibining Pilipinas Universe Maria Isabel Lopez was not also invited to the pageant.
Last year, Sandra Seifert was also disqualified few days before the pageant night for her FHM photos. Interestingly, one of the hosts the pageant was Carlene Aguilar, who also posed for FHM. Lol.
Sandra venerated herself when she won later as Miss Philippines Earth and even won first runner up in Miss Earth international finals. Lately, she also won first runner up in The Sexiest Woman Alive in globalbeauties website.
FAST FORWARD. 2010. WHAT SCANDALS WILL COME OUT THIS YEAR???
Laboyboy hopes for the things that are better. Hope no controversies were spring up.
