Bangkok, Thailand – After today’s fourth-place finish of Annalie Forbes, the Philippines’ representative to the Miss Grand International Beauty Pageant in Bangkok, Thailand, the  Association of Beauty Pageant Franchise Holders (ABPFH) has banned the Philippines from future international beauty competitions, citing “enormous advantage” by Filipina candidates in practically all pageants this year.

The  disqualification will be in effect for two years.

The Philippines holds the distinction of having won the title in all major beauty competitions like Miss Universe, Miss World and Miss International.  Additionally, every new international beauty competition has seen a Filipina winning the title or placing in the top 5.  Earlier this year, Mutya Datul won the 2013 Miss Supranational Pageant.

Forbes is the fourth Filipino to make it to the top 5 in competitions this year. Megan Young, of course, bagged the 2013 Miss World title this year, the first-ever for the Philippines.  Before Young, Evangeline Pascual reached the finals and was first runner-up in 1973 while Ruffa Gutierrez was second runner-up in 1993.

Ariella Arida, the country’s bet in the 2013 Miss Universe Pageant in Moscow, Russia, placed fourth.

Other Filipina beauties who have won international titles include Gloria Diaz and Margie Moran (Miss Universe) and Gemma Cruz, Mimilanie Marquez, Aurora Pijuan, and Precious Lara Quigaman (Miss International). Karla Henry won the Miss Earth title in 2008.

In 2010, 2011 and 2012, the Philippines’  Venus Raj, Shamcey Supsup and Janine Tugonon were all in the top 5 in the Miss Universe competition.

ABPFH said that it is time for the Philippines to give other countries the chance to win international beauty competitions, adding that “the world already knows how beautiful and talented Filipinas are.”

  1. I think that’s not fair, its not our fault if the Philippines is lucky enough to win the global beauty contest. If they will do this, why not impose this to Miss Venezuela and other Latina countries, they dominating wins the contest? Also, what is the main purpose of this global beauty contest? The beauty queens will serve as an ambassador of goodwill, representing their respective countries. Each country has its own right time to win.

  4. Filipino women are the most stunning women on this planet. There are no ugly Filipino women, you know? I mean, Filipino women are thin and small. OK, some Western guys complain about too skinny Filipino ladies but they are beautiful. What else do you need from a girl?

    Pinoy Pride pala, ha! PRIDE = ONE OF THE SEVEN DEADLY CAPITAL SINS!

    1. The word pride has varied meanings. The “pride” you are referring to as one of the capital sins is not the same as the “pride” when one feels deep pleasure and satisfaction for the achievement, qualities or possessions that do one credit.” Filipina beauty queens who brought honor for the country is one’s PRIDE and JOY for every Filipino. And that is far and away from the capital sin “pride” you are referring to, which is intrinsically evil of being self-conceited, self-centered, and egoistical. Or the quality of being narrow-minded and excessively conceited or absorbed in oneself.

    2. Following your concept of the word pride, we all know that “Dr. Jose P. Rizal is the pride of the Malay Race;” now, is it a sin to say so?

  6. The Philippines won four international beauty titles this year [2013] which no other country for that matter had achieved so far, namely: Miss World, Miss Supranational, Miss International and lastly Miss Tourism International. This spectacular achievement sets a new benchmark in beauty contest records. A herculean challenge for others to replicate, duplicate or imitate; to outdo, outshine or overshadow. The Philippines has etched its name and levitated itself in the hallmark of beauty pageants; whether or not these are prestigious, popular, minor or whatever… It is bound by destiny to rewrite history and shatter world records in the annals of beauty pageants. A magnificent milestone in the realm of beauty. This outstanding accomplishment is A BITTER PILL SO HARD TO SWALLOW for those who refuse to accept and acknowledge this stark and glaring reality. Indeed, “Truth is stranger than fiction.” I believe, this spectacular feat is written among the stars for a nation blessed by God. No matter how hard you try to forestall the course of destiny, it will always find its way to fulfill its promises, precisely because it was meant to be, according to God’s plan. “You can never put good women down.” They will succeed no matter what odds come along, simply because they were born achievers and winners. CONGRATULATIONS TO PHILIPPINES! In support hereof and to attest this fact, please check the following websites, to wit:

    By way of this unparalleled and remarkable achievement, the Philippines “ADDED THE MOST UNIQUE AND COVETED FEATHER IN ITS CAP,” aside from holding the distinction of being the FIRST AND ONLY country SO FAR, to win and collect the following titles AS OF DECEMBER 31, 2013, to wit:

  9. Miss Phillippines won Miss International 2013 because of one reason and ONLY ONE REASON, she got the SYMPATHY VOTES of the judges! The horrific devastation of Haiyan gave her a huge advantage, a sure sympathy win hands down. A win is a win, CONGRATULATIONS!

    1. It is not only a question of beauty, but also a question of intellectual capacity. Learn how to exercise tolerance. The judges have handed down their verdict which deserves respect and Miss Philippines won the coveted crown, take it or leave it. Respect begets respect. Hatred is reserved for hatred in return. And the cycle goes on… We are civilized people and should behave so, in a civilized and polite society. The Philippines won three titles this year which no other country for that matter had achieved so far, Miss World, Miss Supranational and Miss International. This achievement is now a new benchmark in beauty contest records. Where, and how did your country fare in these pageants? The Philippines has etched its name as the hallmark of beauty pageants; be these pageants are prestigious, popular or not… or whatever… Sorry to say, but eat your heart out.

    2. The competent judges have sensed from her not only beauty [considering beauty is in the eyes of the beholder; depending on how deep or shallow you define beauty] but behind her sweet and lovely face is her vision for the welfare of mankind, the values of sympathy, compassion and the virtue of hope; all of paramount importance and for the best interest of humanity, in general. This is her shining vision and primordial objective as Miss International which made her stand out among the other candidates. And it did transcend over what was superficial about beauty pageants. Determined and confident as she was, and she still is. CONGRATULATIONS! MISS PHILIPPINES! You deserve that crown!

    3. Far more important than physical appearance is the innermost character of every human being. The intangible character of every person irrespective of her belief shall linger in everyone’s mind especially who could be an ambassadress of goodwill to men of all nations.

    4. Assuming without admitting it was sympathy votes, since only the judges know for sure, then, she must be undisputably WITTY for turning a misfortune to her HUGE advantage. A metamorphosis of negative aspect of life into a positive result in life. That constitutes mental sharpness and acumen perse and certainly falls within the purview of mental hardwork. Anybody could be in the same footing, but if you are not mentally keen and astute, how can you convince those judges and earn their votes? Therefore, it still boils down to hardwork to bring home that crown, it was not served on a proverbial “silver platter.” She rightfully deserves that crown and title more than anybody else. Again, CONGRATULATIONS TO PHILIPPINES!
