MANILA. Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – President Rodrigo Roa Duterte’s War on drugs will not spare anyone, not even beauty pageant contestants.

Today the Philippines announced that the Miss Universe contestants from Venezuela and Brazil will not be allowed to participate in the international beauty pageant to be held here next January.

The announcement came as two female foreigners — one from Venezuela and the other from Brazil (not the pageant contestants) — were nabbed by authorities at Manila’s Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) for trying to bring in illegal drugs.

Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief Ronald ‘Bato’ De La Rosa warned other countries that their Miss Universe contest representatives will also be banned if any of their female citizens are caught trying to smuggle drugs into the country.

With the banning of Venezuela and Brazil, the Philippines’ representative, Maxine Medina  will have a much better chance to win the crown (back to back) now worn by Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach.

Venezuela and Brazil are among the consistent winners and finalists in the 65-year-old pageant.
