Well, the people behind the Miss Earth South Africa Organization sent a Press Release explaining her no-show (please read below), and just to sum it all up – height became a big concern as Irina is measured at 164cm. Check out the group photo above during the welcome party where you can see her standing side-by-side the other ladies. She actually looks even shorter than the reported 164 cm. on the website. This inspite of their national franchise holder Ella Bella Leite being aware of the minimum requirement at 165 cm.Your thoughts, dear readers?
What is your take on the disqualification of Irina based on height?
