Remember her? That beauty contestant who have a problem with the English language but was crowned during the Bb Pilipinas pageant this year?
Yeah, that San Miguel. Maybe she actually felt the pressure right now she had to quit.
Controversial beauty titlist quits
MANILA, Philippines—The Binibining Pilipinas World title abruptly changed hands Tuesday after the controversial winner last March, Janina San Miguel, resigned, the Binibining Pilipinas Charities announced.
According to a statement, San Miguel had backed out due to personal reasons, notably the recent death of a close relative.
“The untimely demise of her grandfather, among other personal reasons, has caused undue stress thus hindering her from fulfilling her duties for the said title,” the statement said.
First runner-up Danielle Castaño was picked to replace San Miguel for the Ms World Pageant in Johannesberg, South Africa in November.
San Miguel drew criticism over her remarks in the question-and-answer portion of the Bb Pilipinas Beauty Pageant, in which she went on to capture the Bb Pilipinas World title.
