Bb. Pilipinas Universe 2010 winner Maria Venus Raj is out.

Venus Raj was dethroned from her crown as Bb. Pilipinas Universe 2010 by Binibining Pilipinas Charities, Inc (BPCI) because of the issue of her citizenship.  Last March 6 she was crowned as one of the most beautiful women in the Philippine and won the crown in Araneta Coliseum
According to Jenny Inocencio Marcial, Corporate Affairs and PR Manager of BPCI that there are inconsistent document and statement between Venus and her mother.  
"We found inconsistencies in their statements. Both Venus and her mother said she was born in Doha, Qatar, while yung na-submit nilang legal documents say she was born in the Philippines  We don't want din naman to give her family the pain of being in a situation like this. I'm sure Venus has nothing to do with this and we will find a way to deal with this problem,"
This is an excerpt of BPCI statement thru text:
"Today March 29, 2010, Bb. Pilipinas Charities, Inc. decided, with a heavy heart, to let Bb. Pilipinas-Universe 2010 Maria Venus Raj go, after the organization discovered inconsistencies contained in her birth records, in contrast to her personal account of her birth."

2nd runner-up Helen Nicolette Mercado Henson is now the official candidate for the upcoming Miss Universe 2010

    I feel sad, when I heard the news. Why BPCI org. did not checked the documents before hand. Miss Raj had a great presentation during the BB.Pilipinas pageant. She got my attention with her great body stats. She can represent the country in international pageant very well. With all this mess, I guess this will questioned the credibility of BPCI and other organizers.
