A new Miss Universe Thailand has been named.
And as expected, she is the 1st Runner-up Pimbongkod ‘Ellie’ Chankaew who will now assume the responsibility of representing the Land of Smiles in Miss Universe 2014.
The tall (1.79m) US-bred Ellie has been announced as the replacement of Weluree Ditsayabut who abdicated her title yesterday.
Some of our concerned Thai readers were actually surprised that there was so much sympathy for Weluree. They claim to know the actual reasons behind the opposition. And the details are just long and dizzying (embarrassing, if you will) that I opt not to share too much info anymore.
Anyways, that matter is settled. For now.
