Can Recalled Contestants Carla Lizardo and Aiza Faeldonia Still Win in Bb. Pilipinas 2014?
I truly wonder how these two ladies feel after this emotional roller-coaster ride.
At first, it seemed that Carla Lizardo and Aiza Faeldonia were destined to be included in the Top 40, passing every screening session until the final day when they were told to go home. They didn’t make it! Imagine their disappointment after getting so far then being left out.
But then a strange thing came about: 2 girls in the official list of candidates were suddenly out of the running just two days after the announcement of the Top 40!
Carla and Aiza were then invited to join the final line-up of contestants in the Bb. Pilipinas 2014! Did they cry when they got the phone call? Or were they tempted to say no? Whatever they felt, it must have been positive because both girls grabbed the opportunity to be included in the final line-up.
And based on the photos above, both girls look more than qualified!
Meantime, the two other girls – Sherlien Dass and Diane Querrer – who had to drop out of the pageant were reportedly disqualified due to height issues. No, I do not envy these ladies who did their best to shine in the screenings. It’s no fault of theirs if they made the cut. Now, whether height (both are believed to 5’4″) was the reason for their disqualification has not been verified; Bb. Pilipinas has yet to make a formal announcement on the matter. The only proof of the change in line-up is the addition of the photos of Carla Lizardo and Aiza Faeldonia and the removal of the photos of She Dass and Diane Querrer on the official Facebook page of Bb. Pilipinas.
But now my question is: Do contestants who are ‘replacements’ have any real chance at any of the 4 crowns? At the very least can they enter the semi-finals? Will the judges and organizers ‘discriminate’ against them because they are just ‘recall’ girls? How well have previous ‘recall girls’ performed in Bb. Pilipinas?
As for this author, if either wins a crown, I will rejoice because such vindication is so sweet. And from what I’m seeing, these two girls could pull a shocker on coronation night, March 30, 2014. Wouldn’t that just be so fun?
