    PHILIPPINES BANNED FOR TWO YEARS FROM THE BEAUTY PAGEANTS?

    The Philippines has had a bumpy year. While the country is still recovering from the desolation caused by Typhoon Haiyan, rumours have started floating around that the country has been disqualified from all future International beauty pageants for the next two years. And this is because of a prodigious advantage. The country went on to win three titles this year including Miss World, Miss Supranational and third Runner up title in Miss Universe. But is this dominance a reason good enough to disqualify Philippines?

    The answer is no. And this rumour remains a rumour which was reportedly fabricated by The Adobo Chronicles. The report stated that the Association of Beauty Pageant Franchise Holders (ABPFH) has banned Philippines from future international beauty competitions citing 'enormous advantage' by Filipina candidates in almost all the pageants this year.

    It may be noted that The Adobo Chronicles is a false news website which publishes mordant articles. The website states "Everything you read on this site is based on fact, except for the lies."

    The rumour has spread like a wildfire setting twitter on ablaze. "Philippines is disqualified from Miss Universe Pageant for 2 years because the judges want the other countries to have a chance at winning LOL" tweeted a fan. Another fan tweeted "As a Filipina, I don't know whether to feel offended or flattered."

    A Miss Venezuela 2013 contestant has revealed that she had sewn a mesh to her tongue to prevent herself from eating solids.

    Wi May Nava, first Runner-up, who was interviewed for a BBC special 'Secrets of South America: Extreme Beauty Queens', said that she had breast implants, dental work and a nose job, along with having a piece of plastic mesh sewn to her tongue, the New York Post reported.

    She explained that it makes her lose weight quicker because it hurts too much to eat anything but liquids.

For me it's an opportunity that no girl rather no one would want to miss out on and I consider myself no exception to that.

    I'll give my best in every challenge that comes my way, rest I'll leave it to the jury.

    What are your hopes and aspirations for the future?
    Hope to be a better person each day I look myself into the mirror. Aspirations: MISS WORLD 2014!

    Any final thoughts?
