As early as now, Bb. Pilipinas Disqualifies a Contestant?
UPDATE: The pageant grapevine is abuzz with the rumor that not only one, but TWO contestants are out of the game: aside from Sherlien Dass, Dianne Querrer has been disqualified. Due to issues with height of all things! Both are only 5′ 4″. They will reportedly be replaced by Aiza Faeldonia and Carla Lizardo. But still no official word from BPCI so keep posted.
Almost every year, one poor girl gets the axe in Bb. Pilipinas, usually for so-called ‘racy’ photo spreads in magazines, citizenship issues and whatnot.
Last year it was Teresa Fenger who had to drop out. In 2011 it was Bianca Paz and in 2009 Sandra Seifert was forced to resign days before coronation night. And let’s not forget the time when Bb. Pilipinas dethroned winner Venus Raj but through her sheer determination to fight for her crown, got reinstated.
Now, I hear that Sherlien Dass has dropped out of the competition just a couple days after being announced one of the official candidates for the Bb. Pilipinas 2014 beauty pageant. Is this true? I checked out She Dass’s Facebook and saw this:
No reason was given and Bb. Pilipinas has yet to make an official confirmation that Sherlien Dass was indeed disqualified. Meantime, I spotted one comment by a visitor to the Bb. Pilipinas Facebook which claims that Sherlien was replaced by as certain Aiza. Hmmm… do any of you know if this is true?
If it is true, it’s sad news specially because Sherlien Dass is a fresh new face in the pageant scene and a pretty one at that. I hear, just like Venus Raj, she is part-Indian. I guess we just have to wait for Bb. Pilipinas to say something about this…
