Evangeline Pascual: First Filipina Miss World We Never Had

Miss Republic of the Philippines 1973 Evangeline Pascual, is the first Filipina Miss World that the Philippines never had.

The former beauty queen-turned actress, public speaker, model, painter and former radio anchor Evangeline Louise Ancheta Pascual could have been the first Filipina Miss World in 1973.

At a young age of 16, the 5’11” lass from Orani, Bataan is the 8th Philippine entry at the MW pageant held which was at the Royal Albert Hall in London, England in 1973. Evangeline and USA’s Marjorie Wallace were tied for the top spot at the coronation and a re-vote was made wherein an American judge, Gregory Peck tilt the decision in favor of Miss USA. Evangeline was eventually proclaimed 1st Runner-up.

The new Miss World was later on stripped of her title 104 day since her victory. Marjorie Wallace was fired due to her much publicized scandalous affair with a very much married man, popular Welsh singer Tom Jones, while still being engaged to another man, Formula One driver Peter Revson.

Miss World organizers arrived in Manila to offer the duties and responsibilities left by the winner to Evangeline but without the title and the crown. By then she was already an upcoming movie actress and a most sought after model so she refused for personal and professional reasons. She was already signed with several film contracts that she could no longer back out of.

The crown was then offered to the 2nd runner-up that year, Patricia Teresa Yuen Leung of Jamaica. Patsy Yuen accepted the offer to complete the Miss World duties without being officially crowned as Miss World.

IMHO it was an injustice to ask anyone to complete the reign of a winner without acknowledging her as the new queen. Evangeline should have been instated as the new Miss World that year…

IMG|WME in Financial Trouble, Miss Universe Pageant Survival in Question

The Miss Universe parent company Endeavor, suffered another setback as its credit ratings has been downgraded to a “substantial risk”.

Endeavor, formerly IMG|WME, has its S&P credit rating lowered. It has been downgraded from B to CCC, which means that the company is currently vulnerable and is dependent upon favorable business, financial, and economic conditions to meet its financial commitments. The credit rating agency also changed the company’s outlook to negative.

S&P Global Ratings (previously Standard & Poors) is an American credit rating agency that publishes financial research and analysis on stocks, bonds, and commodities. S&P developed the standard rating scale used to rate both short- and long-term debt.

HAIL ARI FULL OF DEBT

Endeavor currently has an astonishing $4.6 billion in long-term debts and overall liabilities totaling $7.2 billion. With a large chunk of its business is on live events like the Miss Universe pageant, the current coronavirus pandemic puts it in a more precarious state that it has raised questions about Endeavor’s ability to survive.

Pageantry and Covid-19

With the news of several new cases of Covid-19 found, how will that affect the national pageant season?

The Covid-19 virus scare is a hot topic in the news nowadays. No one can escape it on the news and even on social media. With this global epidemic becoming more widespread, we fear that this may affect the national pageant season and more so the international pageant season come 3rd-4th quarter of 2020.

First to postpone their inaugural pageant is the Miss Charm International pageant that is supposed to happen in Vietnam this month of March. It has made public that due to the continued spreading of the said virus, they are postponing their pageant towards the latter end of the year.

Another pageant that has made changes in their finals night is the Binibining Pilipinas pageant whose April 26th coronation night is moved to May 31st. Insider rumors are saying that the said move was due to the Covid-19 virus, although no confirmation is yet available. One thing is for certain, the events and public appearances of the Binibinis for this week have been postponed for safety reasons.
One of the latest cases of the Covid-19 infection discovered in the Philippines is an employee of Deloitte Philippines in Bonifacio Global City in Taguig. Taguig is currently the headquarters and base of operations for the Miss Universe Philippines pageant. It was earlier reported that the MUPh activities are postponed in light of this new development. It is also likely that even pageant fans are to take up more precaution and avoid the infected locations altogether.

Two of the countries gravely affected by the Corona virus is the United States, which is the headquarters of the Miss Universe org, and the Miss International pageant, which holds the annual Miss International pageant. It is likely that these countries would be very cautious in holding these pageants. It is also likely that the Miss Earth pageant may take necessary precautions in holding the pageant in the Philippines.

The Corona virus outbreak IMHO will pose a serious blow to tourism everywhere and it will severely affect both national an international pageants. What we can hope for is that this epidemic would have treatment options before it gets any worse…

The FrontRow Controversy

FrontRow made a huge splash starting several years back. This MLM company has made an even bigger news in the world of pageantry when it was one of the sponsors of the Miss Universe 2016 pageant in Manila and the main sponsor of the Miss Universe Philippines franchise in the country.

So it was a shock when a former member cast the company under a bad light. Former member Dave Villanueva reveals several labor issues and illegal practices with the company in his complaint on Raffy Tulfo’s program. These are the videos from Raffy Tulfo’s YouTube channel.

In the interest of fair reporting we are including the official statement that  FrontRow posted on their official Instagram account regarding this matter. They have opted to keep silent on the issue and let their legal team handle it properly.

It is yet unclear how will this affect the Miss Universe Philippines franchise or the pageant organization itself. We all have to wait and see how this controversy will pan out…

Rumor Mill: Is This Pageant Having an Ego?

Know your worth as the saying goes but it goes both ways.
We all know of the recent moves of international pageants “shopping around” for local franchises. It seems like they are slow dancing to Patti Page’s “Changing Partners” more frequently recently.

Now there is this rumored pageant that has been said to be very ‘demanding’ when it comes to its local franchise. It is said that said pageant has been wanting to move franchise holders locally for the past 3 years. Insiders say that the demand is to make their pageant the top title in the local franchise and several other perks. While we do acknowledge their wish to be given accommodations when they visit for the local pageant’s finals, they cannot be too demanding on the franchise fee that they are asking. Rumor has it that they are demanding around US$70,000 for the local franchise. That is roughly PHP 3.5 million, almost an equivalent to a condominium unit in any of the Ayala Land developments. And that figure is expected to rise up every year.
This is said to be one of the reasons why it was rumored earlier that it was going to move from its current local franchise holder to another local pageant that holds the franchise of its male pageant counterpart. Our moles are guessing that the current local franchise bid a higher number than that to retain the franchise of the pageant.
While the pageant is quite glamorous and has a superb production, it hasn’t yet achieved that longevity and level of prestige and accolades that the Big 4 pageants have. So this is one of the things that we are baffled about. Where is their loyalties lie when the local organization remained loyal to them during the time that the pageant ran into controversy when a splinter org from within created a separate same name pageant in India? Ego much? Dementia much?
How easy was it for them to forget?

Rumor Mill: 2 Pageants Goes Head to Head

In the mood for some gossip?

So here’s how the story goes Newbie Pageant is said to be in talks with a broadcasting network that is the home of a very prestigious Legacy Pageant. How sure are we that the talks has already happened? Well let’s just say that the table discussions happened just earlier today! How far are the talks gone now? Rumor has it that the heads are already talking about music copyrights for songs to be used in the pageant. It is said that NP will be paying for air-time in the said Family-Friendly Network sometime May of this year. Two rival pageants in one broadcast station, LET THE DRAMA UNFOLD!
This would be a huge declaration of war as NP is on the move to set the stage for the biggest pageant in terms of number of candidates. It is rumored that the target number of candidates this year is at the minimum of 50 delegates or more! Rumor has it that it was stipulated in their contract with a Foreign Pageant that NP has to have twice as much candidates as that of LP.  But then again that is not exactly how the rumored contract is worded. But it is clear that NP has to have the biggest number of candidates in record. LP on the other hand has not set in a date for its finals but there are talks that it is in negotiations to hold its finals either on April or June. LP is said to be unaffected with NP’s overly dramatic stunts on social media and is planning something up their sleeves themselves. Pageant insiders have been gossiping about how the number of applicants in LP is of larger quantities and are of better quality. While LP’s roster of candidates will be named soon, NP is said to be struggling to fill in the 50-80 slots with quality candidates.
But that is not the only thing happening that would put their rivalry into a boil. A high profile lady by the name of Laroja is seem at the premises of the LP pageant. What she is doing there is anybody’s guess, but it will be clear that Laroja will play a major role in LP’s pageant finals. How about NP?  Well our gossipy friends are saying that another high profile lady by the name of Azura will figure prominently in NP’s activities. So it seems that the paths for Laroja and Azura are meant to go head to head as much as NP and LP currently is. As fate would have it, Laroja and Azura’s loyalties will put them at odds with each other and will test who is the stronger high profile lady…
Question will be: which will the fans support and patrionize? NP or LP? Laroja or Azura?

Jolene Marie Rotinsulu Shades Frederika Cull for Her Bad Attitude

There is no smoke if there is no fire. Remember that.” Those are the strong words of Miss International 2019 top 8 placer Jolene Marie Rotinsulu of Indonesia allegedly referring to the beef between her and Puteri Indonesia 2019 winner Frederika Cull.

In a screenshot of her conversation on Intagram, the baby-faced Jolene revealed that Frederika attempted to spread lies about her to fellow Puteri runner up Jessica Fitriani. Jolene even hinted that their friendship was destroyed by the work of Frederika’s mother, Yulia Peers, who was a self-proclaimed ‘Mama Universe’. Jolene also revealed that she never had or currently have any issues with any of the mothers of other Puteri winners.
You don’t know anything, Fred once instigated Jessica to hate me. But because of our good relationship Jessica did not believe the rumors and immediately confirmed with me [the truth]…” Jolene said in an Instagram chat. (Blogger’s Note: Pardon my limited translating skills as I am no longer fluent in bahasa Indonesia)

It seems that the diminutive main winner is a trouble maker like her fans as it was reported that Frederika’s fans were also diminishing Jolene’s achievement in Miss International earlier this year. This year, only two of the Puteri winners trained in Manila under the Kagandahang Flores group, Jessica and Jolene. The other went and rumored to have gotten training in the US with someone who eventually was a Miss Universe judge.

RUMOR MILL: The Mistake Announcement

This is perhaps one of the most problematic edition of the pageant.

WARNING: this only a rumor mill, it may or may not be true. We cannot validate the truth to these gossips and it’s up to you the reader whether or not to believe if there are any truths to these at all.

One of the issues that has been quite problematic was the mistake in one of the special awards of the pageant. During the live telecast the winner was flashed across the screens. For those who were seated at the back of the stage, they saw on the teleprompter that the winner from a pageant powerhouse country. However when the live interview was shown, it was a different girl who was invited onstage! Those at the dark VIP seats at the back who saw the teleprompter clearly were shocked. They immediately thought that the host committed another booboo in the announcement of the actual winner. Well part of the blame is on the production crew who had the other girl dress up in her national costume. Said girl thought that she won the best in national costume award. This should have been clarified to the girl that she was there just to showcase her national costume and had not really won the award. Continue reading “RUMOR MILL: The Mistake Announcement”

RUMOR MILL: Venue

To say that this pageant was a mess is an understatement…and apparently there are more cleaning up that needs to be done!

WARNING: this only a rumor mill, it may or may not be true. We cannot validate the truth to these gossips and it’s up to you the reader whether or not to believe if there are any truths to these at all.

Rumor has it that the pageant is supposed to replicate its 2009 edition. Finals and prelims is supposed to happen at a ballroom of a hotel. Problem is, it’s football season and everyone was busy with the sporting event. In a country that is majorly a fanatic of football, baseball and basketball the pageant just isn’t in the priorities to watch.  In a country that the large majority thinks pageants are passé, being held in the same city as the civil rights movement is born during football season… well that seems to be a recipe for a disaster. Some peeps who kept sending us messages and we’ve talked to were describing that nobody seems to notice that the supposedly biggest deal to pageant fans around the world is happening in their city. Even cab drivers said that they have no idea. Is that because they rarely left the hotel for any outdoor activities? Or perhaps the week just passed by and nobody really noticed them?

RUMOR MILL: Tickets, VIPs and More!

So this time we are gonna dish out some behind the scenes shockers of a recently held pageant and what happened on the ticket sales…

Gird your loins because this isn’t going to be a nice read.

WARNING: this only a rumor mill, it may or may not be true. We cannot validate the truth to these gossips and it’s up to you the reader whether or not to believe if there are any truths to these at all.

Tickets was a huge problem this year. And the reason for that is because of the relatively tiny venue. Usually said big pageant would book a huge venue to stage their finals to maximize ticket sales. This time around though the seating capacity is only an estimated 2,500 seats versus previous editions with 5-6k seating. So to recuperate the expenses incurred, a couple of things was set into place: VIP packages and more expensive tickets.

With national directorship comes with privileges. And one of those privileges is the pre-selling of tickets. One new ND however, abused that privilege by giving out the codes to her fellows. That is why you can hear the venue seemingly filled with people from that country, whenever their chick is on stage. This was good for them but bad for other NDs who had the finesse of being considerate to others who also wanted to watch. Such pedestrian tactic from said ND is known to the head of the pageant and was said to admitting that the pre-selling code was a mistake/ lapse of judgement on their part. Because this meant that there were a few remaining tickets left for the actual selling. So blame this new ND for you running out of tickets to buy. A clue? Well, the ND comes from a country that punched a pageant fan from Asia and broke their flag.

That isn’t the only issue with the tickets though. Here’s a not-so-very-important-treatment complaint from a number of those that purchased the “expensive $700-1300” tickets. First was the holding area of the VIP ticket holders, they were promises a “priority entry line” to which they found themselves in the same waiting area with the rest of the general audience. Then there was the “front row” or “row 7 seat” that was problematic. Originally in the booking of the VIP tix it said that the guests will be seated at Row 6 then was bumped to Row 7 several days later. But they found themselves exiled in the back of the stage where it was dim in their are, all they see were the backs of the candidates or the tree props, and basically missed the entire show. A parent of a candidate who placed in the top 5/3  of said pageant was also in the dark being seated at the “VIP” area.
Some say that in the host country, this can be a case for false advertising so a number of them complained to the org reps. And now some are demanding or are being refunded a $200 off their ticket purchase. If you will only see the backs of the candidates for a VIP tickets then it might have been more cost-friendly to watch at home. Rumor has it that a rep even said that the venue provided a large screen for the VIP to watch the proceedings at the back, which is not equal to watching at home for free in your pj’s versus spending $1.6k on the ticket (not to mention the hotel and airfare) on the finals.

That wasn’t all that was a mess on the said pageant… there might be more to come in the coming days…

20+ Questions for Samantha Lo

All these rumors and gossips surrounding Binibining Pilipinas winner Samantha Lo has put everyone into a tailspin. So many questions, and yet so little answers available…

  1. Why is Samantha carrying a tampered and altered /fake Philippine passport?
  2. She has been in the Philippines for several years now, why didn’t she made steps to procure or file for a legitimate passport?
  3. Why didn’t the BPCI undergo a more thorough inspection of her passport? Was the fake passport look so real that they were duped to believe it was a valid one?
  4. Did BPCI commit negligence in this area?
  5. Will BPCI file a case against her for breaking the rules against filing falsified documents?
  6. Did Samantha knowingly lie about her passport to the BPCI officials?
  7. Did she knowingly committed falsification of public documents with her fake Filipino passport?
  8. Does her parents’ statement that they used a “fixer” to procure for her a passport constitute an admission of a crime? Can they be legally culpable for committing a crime?
  9. If she or her family falsified her Philippine passport, does this mean she is not a Filipino Citizen? Does she have any other proof of citizenship? Was she born in the Philippines?
  10. If her proof of Filipino Citizenship is only her passport and she does not have any other legal documents proving that she is a Filipino, does this place her and her family as ‘illegal aliens’ in the Philippines?
  11. If she isn’t a Filipino Citizen, does this mean she is overstaying in the Philippines and thus an illegal alien? Is this grounds for deportation? Grounds for a legal case?
  12. If she or her family is found guilty in knowingly falsifying a Philippine passport, will they face jail time?
    Republic Act No. 8239 otherwise known as the Philippine Passport of 1996 states that anyone who – A) Makes any false statement in any application for passport with the intent to induce or secure the issuance of a passport under the authority of the Philippine Government, either for his own use or the use of another, contrary to this Act or rules and regulations prescribed pursuant hereto shall be punished by a fine of not less than Fifteen thousand pesos (P15,000) nor more than Sixty thousand pesos (P60,000) and imprisonment of not less than three (3) years nor more than ten (10) years: or  B) Uses or attempts to use any passport which was secured in any way by reason of any false statements, shall be punished by a fine of not less that Fifteen thousand pesos (15,000) nor more than Sixty thousand pesos (60,000) and imprisonment of not less that three (3) years, but not more than ten (10) years

  13. If she falsified her Philippine passport, does this mean that she broke rules of the Binibining Pilipinas Charities Inc. regarding citizenship?
  14. If indeed she submitted fraudulent/ tampered documents, will this be enough grounds for dethronement?
  15. Will she be willing to resign her title if proven that she committed falsification of public documents? If she won’t, can BPCI file a case against her?
  16. Was her camp, mentors, social media team, etc… aware that she didn’t have a valid Philippine passport? If they did, were they accessory to the crime or innocent victims of circumstances?
  17. If she doesn’t have a Filipino passport a or is proven not to be a Filipino Citizen, can she still return to the Philippines?
  18. Will she return to the Philippines if she faces legal action and/or jail time?
  19. If returns to the Philippines, will she be detained for not having a passport? Will she be immediately deported in the US or will face legal court?
  20. What should she do next?

We personally hate this predicament both parties are in. Both committed shortcomings but it is clear that Samantha and/or her family committed the bigger crime by obtaining a fake passport. This is a crime punishable by law and goes beyond breaking BPCI rules.
IMHO, when she arrived in Venezuela she should have just posted a short message that says she has arrived and that she is competing. She shouldn’t have added the snide shady comments against her ‘local organization’ because it prompted BPCI to release a different statement of their own. A statement that will question her integrity and honesty. Painting the BPCI in a terrible light has only backfired as her can of worms is now open for everyone to see. Samantha may have the fighting spirit but she lacked the tact, grace and diplomacy to navigate these troublesome waters she is in. She and the BPCI should have kept quiet and settled this behind closed-door meetings rather than see it made public…

Signs that You are Watching an Omega-level Pageant

I once had funny discourse between myself and a former colleague in the fashion biz. We were discussing about a controversy about a pageant result which lead to my colleague blurting out a list of signs that a pageant is a ‘minor’ pageant (Omega level pageant if you will). Plus the fact that he is friends with a number of our beauty queens and their horrid and horrible backstage stories would either be a source of laughter, dismay or a full-body cringe.
2019 UPDATE: Initially published in 2016, this blogpost had been one of the most popular articles among our blog readers. So 3 years later, we thought that you might enjoy an update on this list as well as the addition of two more signs…

Now, don’t get me wrong, I like a number of pageants but we have to agree that because of the over abundance of pageant nowadays (they seem to reproduce like rabbits on Viagra), the standards and the expectations are just quite too high from pageant connoisseurs to be called a certain level of quality.
I wouldn’t take credit on this list as it was not mine, but please take no offense as this was made purely as a joke with loads of sarcasm… I was just entertained with the funny one liners in the conversation…
1. Not enough food for the candidates – when candidates bluntly tell that they are starving, hungry or there is not enough food, that’s a sure sign of a low budgeted production. More so when candidates would post later on that they have to buy food on their own because ‘they ran out of breakfast’ at the hotel… Imagine the scenario of starving skinny beauconeras saying “gutoomm na kameeehhh“…
2. No Finals Night Rundown of events/ script – not this is something that the production team should have. Not having this would make the pageant susceptible to errors in announcement of winners. Just think of this, if a highly produced MU pageant managed to have a mistake last year, how much more for those that don’t have a script.
3. When there is only one or two good looking candidate – for an international competition, this would be bad. Guaranteed that standards of beauty may vary but when the pendulum swings on polar opposites in terms of candidate quality then that might not be a good indicator. More so if those two end up only as runners up with a ‘questionable winner’… or as my friend would say “nautusan lang bumili ng patis tapos beauty queen na nung bumalik“.
4. Year in an Year out, pageant couldn’t break more than 18-25 candidates & when there are two reps from one country – yep, that’s an Omega sign for sure. If the pageant has been running for 5 years now and still have  25 candidates competing annually. It means that there are no interested parties who wanna join your competition. This is more pronounced when 2 different candidates represent separate regions/ provinces of that country. How would you feel having a Miss North Philippines, Miss Middle Philippines and a Miss South Philippines all in one pageant? As my friend would say ‘the more, the many-er’…or ‘pandagdag tao sa stage‘…
5. When your prizes as winner are gift vouchers – we once have heard of a pageant runner up whose prizes were in gift vouchers from corporate sponsors, in China… So pano yun? Travel to Shanghai for a spa treatment? Yung mas mahal pa ang ticket to travel than the prizes itself. At least we can look at the bright side, you have one year to use up those vouchers.
6. When you have multiple versions of the pageant name or have different versions of the same pageant – need we explain more? #pageantversionabc #pageantspamore #misstourismpamore #unlipageant #unlibeauconto888
7. No official sponsors – no makeup sponsor, no swimsuit sponsor, no official media partner, no official hotel/ accommodation partner, etc… makes you question where do they get the money to run the pageant? This would specially be fishy as the money would be coming mainly from the pockets of the candidates or the national org sending candidates. “Yung pinagkakakitaan lang kayo…” as my friend would say. And then you get the shittiest breakfast and accommodations with the same breakfast of egg and cereal each morning and a futon at night to sleep in. Also there is no makeup room/ area, or there is not enough makeup artist & hairdressers. Now that’s a sign to be alarmed when candidates do their makeup and hair on the bathroom of the hotel or on the floor of the halls. Gives a whole new meaning to the Andrew E song “Banyo Queen”.
8. When a National Director or a Mentor of a candidate also serves as a judge on the finals – we know a number of pageants guilty of this, both on the male and female pageants… even an Alpha pageant is found guilty of this. But this is more pronounced when some thesis beauties make top 3 versus more deserving girls. Add to this is that ‘ballpen at papel lang ang ginagamit for judging‘ meaning no computerized scoring or official tabulators. Yung after a commercial break ‘may nanalo na agad’ even the first cut has just been made prior to the break. Maybe you entered a paygeant…
9. Last minute change of pageant format – No sash or trophy for special awardees/ runners up and yet these are announced suddenly during the finals. Yung biglang may 5th runner up kahit wala sa original announced set of winners. Or when a candidate suddenly makes top 10 or top 5 without prior information that a candidate will make semis/ top 5 if they win a certain special award – this is just obvious people. Rigging as its best, or what Latinos call ‘tramoya’
10. When a part of the stage collapses during the finals night – remember the Kris Aquino joke in the late 90’s? Well you get the picture…
11. Pageant owner keeps on dethroning its winners even after their reign ended – as 1st runner up you’ve taken over someone’s crown when the original winners resigns her title after safety concerns, then you finish your reign. And when invited for key events after your reign, you still attend. Then you wanted to join another pageant years later, you receive news on social media that you have been dethroned as winner from a pageant you’ve served your time years ago… So what is that pageant gonna do? Keep upgrading their winner until the 4th runner up becomes the recognized titleholder from years ago?
12. When a pageant keeps getting postponed – after postponing to 3-4 separate dates and still you don’t have a finals date for the competition? More so if you or your national director has already paid the  joining fee/ franchise fee… You might just have been scammed.
Can you think of more signs to add to this list? LOLs

PS, photo no relation to the blogpost… And thanks JGBeks for making me laugh with this topic…

Scandalous Revelations from “Exposing Miss World Contest” Pt.2

How has the Miss World used the Filipino pageant fandom to gain buzz? How has it been using former Miss World Megan Young and the Miss World Philippines national director to further its pageant base in the country?
The Facebook page Exposing Miss World Contest continuous to reveal shocking allegations against the MW pageant.
Disclaimer: these are expose lifted from the page itself and were copied verbatim so as not to alter meaning of the material posted on the page.

These are some of the shocking revelations…
Post Dated December 12 –  During the couple of days… I have had many messages from Filipinos to speak out against the 2016 results. Although I am not the biggest fan of Catriona (I had my other favourites) that contest was also fixed. MWO decided to no longer continue to crown Mexico (intended winner) after she posed nude on a social media site, Instagram. Which was deleted 3 minutes after. Lupita Jones the former director for Miss World in Mexico had sent the organisation the snapshot. We still don’t know why Lupita would have done such a thing. While the org assumed that it was photoshopped, Miss Mexico 2016 made a public apology to the contestants and organisation for posing nude. Yes, she admitted it! However, Miss World is a conservative brand and rightfully so. Any contestant of the 2016 class would tell you this is true. But the 2016 pageant wasn’t rigged for Catriona. She was lucky to even make it that far. I will be posting more about this soon and telling you how Megan and Arnold are being used for a PR crisis due to the 2016 incident…
Reply to a comment on December 13
Comment – All the results are fixed and Megan was also a personal choice of JM.
Exposing Miss World Contest reply – She was. It was a business deal.
Post Dated December 30 – FILIPINOS, if you all had integrity you will boycott Mr World in your country. Because with Stephanie as advisor to MWO and Beauty With a Purpose ambassador (she took over from the late Irish Indian, Krish Naidoo) will make sure to sabotaged The Philippines. Poor Arnold is being used. When MWO received the backlash from 2016 from Indonesia’s director Lilliana judging. MWO decided to make Arnold a scapegoat. He will be sitting on the judging panel annually to make it seem national directors should judge and justify Stephanie’s win. Since he started judging, Stephen Morley has not invited Crookish Lilliana. Indonesia crown is near but MW doesn’t like the plain janes, Lilliana sends.
Poor Arnold is being used! He will sit on the judging panel thinking Miss World is fair. While Donna, Mike, Andrew and Julia all have the same exact results.

Post Dated December 30, 7:45am – Meet Donna Derby Walsh. The Dance choreographer of Miss World. She is the mother of homosexual Miss World host, Barney Walsh. Barney has been having gay sex with Frankie Cena but Barney has a girlfriend, oh sweet Stephanie Del Valle… Donna has been sitting on the Miss World judging panel every year to manipulate the already known result. Come 2019 Miss World, Donna will be sitting on all the preliminary judging panel and the finale judging panel to fixed the pageant to Stephen Morley wishes. How can an unqualified dance coach have knowledge on Top Model and sit on the judging panel every year? The right questions you guys don’t ask 👀 But I don’t blame you… Mike Dixon profile is coming up next.
Post Dated December 30, 7:50am –  So you have already met Donna Walsh aka Donna Derby. Meet now, one of Britain’s best musical director and a close friend of mine, Mike Dixon. I wouldn’t be too harsh on Mike as he is a nice guy. He is the most talented producer I have ever known. Her majesty recommend him. But Mike, stop this nonsense! Mike has been on the judging panel annually to rigged the competition that is already determined. Hence Miss World under STEPHEN Morley has been using the same judges. This never happened in Eric Morley days.

Post Dated December 30, 7:58 AM – Next profile is the snobbish cunt that is Andrew. Andrew is the official hair and make up stylist of Miss World. In order for Stephen Morley to manipulate the results, Good for nothing Andrew sits on the panel to manipulate the results. Ask yourself why does a hairstylist sit on the panel every year. Aren’t they more qualified judges? Laugh out loud. Franchises are dumb not to see all this mess. I’m happy that delegates are sharing my posts and former national directors. Thank you guys so much. 
Come 2019, Andrew, Donna, Mike and Julia will sit on the panel to manipulate the results. Julia, No longer sits on the preliminary judging panel e.g. top model. Mike, Donna and Andrew still do. They will never invite professional judges.
Post Dated December 10Mexico win was POLITICAL – Miss Mexico 2018, Vanessa Ponce De Leon victory was a political move. She knew she had won Miss World as she was told by the team. Everything was a plan and she was a part of it. Vanessa knew about the Multimedia challenge before anyone. Since July. Hence she started on Mobstar (an app used for the contest) prior every other contestants. She wasn’t the one operating her Mobstar account. There were several people back in her country posting for her. Nepal became a threat for Vanessa. They led the Multimedia competition. A competition Vanessa thought she had. France win in the Top Model fast track was also determined beforehand. They tried to saved her as there wasn’t any other preliminary contest she could have done well in. As I said, France is geared towards winning in the future. This is because of a potential host country of Miss World and before Miss World 1953 from France dies. It is her dream to see France wearing the converted royal blue crown. Stephen Douglas Morley on the day for the Head to Head challenge (round two) told the judges that T&T would get in through the judges choice hence for the three (3) Miss World judges to choose Vanessa. Vanessa upon an invitation with Steve, Eric, Mike and Donna choose the remaining 13 contestants. Possible threats for her such as Australia, Philippines and Trinidad and Tobago (Oxford University Lawyer) were left out. Those three (3) countries should never send delegates to Miss World again. Hence you have seen girls that cannot speak well got in. Also, countries that are good business wise. Delegates were intentionally kept out.
Sashes&Scripts believes that there is more to this story and that we haven’t heard the last of it. We are also waiting for any signs of counter from the Miss World organization as it paints their pageant negatively. The best we can do for now is wait and drink tea…
