MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Strike one: she asked fellow contestant Miss Austria if Adolf Hitler was from her country. Strike two: she said of Miss Ecuador: her nose, chin and breasts were all fake.
“She” is Miss Philippines Earth Imelda Bautista Schweighart who was the country’s representative to the recently concluded 2016 Miss Earth Beauty Pageant held in Manila.
Schweighart who didn’t make it to the pageant’s semi-finals was heard and seen on video tape asking Miss Austria the dreaded question, and telling fans about Miss Ecuador’s “fakery.”
Miss Ecuador, Katherine Espin, won the title.
Filipinos love their beauty queens, but when a beauty queen embarrasses them, that’s a different story.
Schweighart has since tendered her resignation as Miss Philipines-Earth.
We hope this unfortunate incident will be buried beneath the earth.
