CARACAS, Venezuela (The Adobo Chronicles, New York Bureau) – All the controversy regarding the travel woes of Miss Philippines Samantha Lo are much ado about nothing.
Lo, who is the Philippines’ representative to the Miss Grand International being held here, was reported to to have been barred in Paris from continuing on to Venezuela because of “passport issues.”
Reports indicate that she had a “fake” Philippine passport, having obtained it from a “fixer.”
But all that doesn’t matter. As reported by ABS-CBN News, the local pageant organizer, Binibining Pilipinas Charities, confirmed Lo had a U.S. passport, proof she is a citizen of the United States.
With all that said, U.S.A. has two candidates for the Miss Grand International Crown.
How cool is that?
