Migbelis Castellanos Speaks on the Miss Venezuela Scandal

The Miss Venezuela pageant has closed doors last March 21st for an internal investigations after accusations surfaced that some former pageant candidates would perform sexual favors to get wealthy sponsors to pay for surgeries and designer clothing. The scandal has been brewing on social media for weeks now with some past candidates flinging allegations of involvement. The controversy also involved Venezuelan government officials who allegedly misused government funds.

Former Miss Venezuela winner Migbelis Castellanos has spoken up and spilled some  beans on the issue.
Castellanos, who was Miss Venezuela in 2013, said she never had any indecent proposals but admitted that she got invitations to meet with wealthy businessmen who could pay for expensive things she needed for the pageant. Although she turned them down, she adds that she witnessed other contestants received special treatment. “In my year there, you would see a girl get there in public transportation or in a taxi, and three months later that girl had her own car, an apartment, and they came from dubious origins,” she revealed.

Her revelations has seriously put the embattled Miss Venezuela organization at a stance that they would really have to do ‘in-house cleaning’. The MVO is considered the most successful pageant at producing international winners with a record of 20 alpha pageant crowns including a Miss Universe back to back win in 2008-09.
