It has been rumored that the Philippines will not be allowed to join any international beauty pageants for the next two years – like this one from Bubble.com. The reason allegedly was very shallow which is to give way to other countries to win such titles. However, although the Philippines got the Miss International title, other Filipino beauty pageant contestants were just in the top 5. Read this:
The Philippines last won the Miss Universe title way back in 1973 when Margie Moran took the title. But the first Filipina to win the crown was Gloria Diaz in 1969.
This year Ariella Arida became the 3rd runner-up in Miss Universe pageant and this is the fourth consecutive year that a Filipina has made it to the Miss Universe Top 5. http://www.emirates247.com/entertainment/philippines-beauty-queens-rule-the-hearts-but-miss-the-title-2013-11-10-1.527565
No doubt that the Filipino beauty queens did well in the recent international contests but I think, there’s no stopping them from aspiring the Miss Universe title in 2014. The Philippines is rightful to appeal if the rumor is true but perhaps, that will not be necessary anymore. The quest can continue, I strongly hope so!
