Bb. Pilipinas bruhaha

Like most of girls, I had wished at one point in my life to be a beauty queen. But because of my genes, I didn't grow up to as tall, as statuesque and as pretty as any pageant contestant should be. So I just resigned to be a fan. But I am not a beauty pageant freak like my better than ice cream friend Mau. I just have a fascination of it and when our bets manages to bag the international titles - I am like every Filipino, jumping with pride. But alas this Bb. Pilipinas 2008 seemed to robbed me of what little respect and fascination I had for the institution. I was horrified watching this video Ria forwarded. It's like watching a Bubble Gang episode except that there were no Michael V. and Ogie making faces after the cue, and her statements were not meant to be punchlines at all. Makes me wonder how could the judges let her win?
