- An issue about the results of Binibining Pilipinas is arousing online
- Some netizens claimed that Bea Patricia Magtanong is Miss Universe-Philippines
- Jonas Gaffud immediately spoke up about the rumors
There have been rumors circulating on social media that Bea Patricia Magtanong is the real winner of Miss Universe-Philippines crown instead of Gazini Ganados.
KAMI learned that according to some netizens, Bea is a green-card holder and this became the reason why the highly-coveted title was not given to her.
Her fans also claimed that their bet performed better than Gazini, especially in the Question And Answer round, during the Coronation Night on June 9.
Several reports also said that the supporters of Bea will write a letter to Paula Shugart, the president of Miss Universe Organization, to solve the issue.
Because of this, beauty queen maker Jonas Gaffud aired his honest thoughts when the press recently talked to him.
He stated that the aforementioned issue continues to be a hearsay since no proof has been presented to the organization yet.
The now-Creative Director of Manhunt International was also asked if a green-card holder is not eligible to join the Mis Universe pageant.
"Puro hearsay lang at lagi kong sinasabi na kung walang proof, hearsay lang siya, so hindi ko alam kung saan nanggagaling ang isyu," Jonas quipped.
"Hindi ako privy sa contract ng national director sa Miss Universe at hindi rin ako lawyer so hindi ko alam yung nakasulat," he added.
When asked if the said beauty queen maker was present during the deliberation of Binibining Pilipinas judges, Jonas responded that he was not there.
"Ay, wala ako doon. Hindi pa ako welcome doon," he stressed.
In a previous article by KAMI, the winning answer of Gazini at Binibining Pilipinas 2019 was reported here.
Gazini Ganados is a 23-year-old beauty queen from Talisay City, Cebu. Her father, whom she has not seen since she was born, is a Palestine citizen. Gazini will be representing the Philippines in Miss Universe 2019 later this year.
