Maria Mika Maxine Medina was the biggest heartbreak of Bb. Pilipinas 2012. She was already proclaimed as an Official Candidate and pinned with the number 12 (aside from completing Aces & Queens’ Dazzling Dozen in that batch). In fact, she has already joined a couple of pre-pageant activities, only to be handed the sad news that she has been disqualified due to conflicts in endorsement contracts. Mentor Jonas Gaffud was the most disappointed with the exclusion.
I’m not all too familiar if the obstacles (read: contract stipulations) to her Bb. Pilipinas participation have already been removed (or expired if you will), but the pageant somehow owes her a big favor of being given a fair shot at one of the crowns. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that she gives the pageant a second try, and be free of whatever hassles this time around.
