MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – While Philippine President Rodrigo Roa Duterte is a known lover of women, he is just sick and tired of Filipinas winning international beauty pageants. So he has issued an Executive Order banning all Philippine beauty pageants.
“The results are so predictable, Filipinas will win most of the international beauty crowns,” Duterte said.
Duterte issued the EO after yet another Filipina won an international beauty crown, that of Miss Diamond of the World 2016. The pageant was held in Algeria.
The Philippines holds both the incumbent titles of Miss Universe (Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach) and Miss International (Kylie Verzosa), not to mention other previous recent titles like Miss World (Megan Young), Miss Earth (Angelia Ong), Miss Globe (Ann Lorraine Colis).
Oh, and as far as male beauty pageants are concerned, we’re not even going to go there.
