I was just about to go to sleep when I received a tweet that Megan Young was “allegedly” denied by the Binibining Pilipinas Organization to screen for the 50th annual beauty pageant of the organization. I immediately checked the pageant site Missosology. Without official confirmation from Megan, the tweets of her handler Jonas Gaffud and someone close to him is apparent enough to conclude that Megan didn’t make it past the screening – she wasn’t even given a chance to screen, to begin with.
Megan was a heavy favorite of many pageant fans since last year, and this year, she was supposedly training very hard for the pageant but alas, the stars and the whole universe is against her.
Apparently, there was an “emergency screening” that happened yesterday afternoon, and this is one of the results of that sad day.
The organization’s view about these types of things is so outdated! Many aspirants worldwide were allowed to compete in their national pageant (some even posing nude), and Megan’s shot is for a fashion magazine, for jeez sake! It irks me that they are being so uptight about this. When will they stop wasting beautiful modern Filipinas?
I am now hoping that Megan will join the rival pageant of Binibini – The Miss World Philippines and aim to get the first blue crown for the Philippines! Madame Stella’s loss is Cory Quirino’s gain!
This post isn’t 100% confirmed yet. I’m still hoping for Megan to be allowed to join and give the candidates this year a run for their money and high heels!
