  1. Ok I get the “rules are rules” argument, but Miss Earth is the one pageant that actually has a social mission – environmental activism. The height requirement, coupled with the straight up WEIRD “body only, face covered up” fashion show is just not a good look for the franchise.

    Let her compete and then choose not to award her because she lied and violated the policy. But don’t let the Miss Earth South Africa franchise control the narrative. That’s a no brainer.

  2. Ang dami nyong kuda 🙂
    Sinabi ko na nagsend ako ang email sa ND ng SA pero ang tagal nilang magreply kaya inabot ng 2 linggo.:-)
    Alangan namang basta palayasin ko na lang c Miss Africa, mas mabuti na rin na sa ND manggaling para walang masabi sa akin ang ME-South Africa,,… Oo, mas may paki ako sa MEO-South Africa kesa sa inyong puro kuda na wala naman kayong naitutulong sa amin kundi lait dahil di kayo masaya kung anong meron kayo at hanggang dyan na lang kayo’t walang asenso hihihi…
    Love,
    Lukring Shock and Bitchy Penetration 🙂

  3. Ok may height requirement na pala ang pagiging earth wartior di ako inform. Ang matatangkad lang ang may kakayanang labanan ang mga bagyo o ano pa man.

  4. It’s unfair, ME Org. allowed her from Day 1 till recently, then the disqualification. What about Athena Imperial Ms Phils Earth 2011. She was short too only 5’4″ that’s less than 164 cm. and they even crowned that moon face as Ms. EARTH Water. Come on… the organizers are not ashamed to be bashed. I bet come coronation night, Top 16 will include Phils and Australia who is half Filipino. Just like last year, they included Sweden, a half Filipino whose body is not even at par with most Latinas. 😦

    • what is it with you against filipinas or girls having filipino blood do well in a competition just because it’s a filipino owned pageant or being held here? these girls have prepared hard to do well and you’re discriminating their chances.

  5. Kung ganun pala, dapat day 1 pa lang or at most by end of first week, me notice of disqualification na.. Bat pinaabot pa ng going 3 weeks.. So in a way, negligent din ang ME in enforcing its rules..

    • Ang dami nyo nmang kuda…hindi na pinasali sa 1st preliminary judging because she did not make the height requirement may hanash kayo…yung pauwiin nman agad agaran pagkadating dito sasabihin nmang rude ang mga organizers. People have always something to say. The point is Irini was treated well in her almost 2 weeks stay in the Phils. and she knows na shaky yung qualifications nya but MEO still accommodated her in the beginning but ruls have to be enforced. And it was enforced. Period.

    • in the first place, hindi na dapat siya pinadala ng ND niya.. since aware naman pala sila sa height requirement. right?

  6. Ang ganda ni Miss South Africa☺
    Hindi lng mga DOM sponsors ng MEO ang naglalaway sa kanya kundi pati ang mga tanim, hangin, tubig at apoy ay gusto syang makasama 😋hihihi
    Actually, nag-email ako sa ND ng SA tungkol sa height ng rep nila para Di nman mapahiya c gandara kung sasabihan cya ni lola angelo ebak reyes na “hoy, bakit ka nandito at Di ka na nahiyang makipagsabayan sa mga matatangkad sa group pictures at nagmumukha kang unano”… ganun kabastos c ebak reyes hihihi.😗
    Buti nman at naging professional ang MEO-SA at pull-out agad ang rep nila hihihi🙂ganern.

  7. Grabe ambongga ng MGI STAGE nakikipagsabayan sa Universe at Supra. Andameng bitter na Pinoy don sa Misso Post ng MGI stage kesyo di naman raw mapapanood sa TV eh wala raw interesadong network di raw mapapanood ng tao dahil no TV airing.
    May gawd!!! Who cares about TV nowadays?? Everything is on the internet!!! Kahit ABS CBN shows nga dabah kompleto don!

    • Bruka, ang stage nila nasa labas lang ng bakuran dahil wala sila sponor. LED lights lang nila pinaganda.. pano pag umulan? aber?

      • Bakit? Sila lang ba ang nag Open Air na Finals? Di ka ba nanood ng Miss Earth 2013 2013 at 2006, Miss World 2015? Hindi sa lahat ng oras maganda ang nasa loob! Mas maganda pag nilalabas paminsan minsan tapos ipapasok ule sa loob! GANERN!!!

  8. Mga bes, if there are no rules and everyone is free to do whatever they want, most people will probably behave selfishly. We need rules to help us get along together and show respect to each other as rules are designed to ensure fairness, safety and respect for other people’s right. ME is still a beauty contest after all. More than simply planting trees and cleaning shorelines infested with garbage, physical beauty is required because she will be meeting different dignitaries and personalities hence the need to be physically appealing. Based sa statement ng SA, alam naman nila na may height requirement and while kinulang delegate nila sa height, they still allowed her to compete hoping it won’t be that imperative. Pero as you can see sa picture, standing side by side, naiwan talaga si Miss South Africa. And if ME organizers will allow her to compete despite failing the said requirement, it won’t be fair to others. Wishing you all a great weekend ❤️ Peace!

    • yes i agree…it will be a precedent. ND ng SA nagkamali. Aminado nman sila. Tinrato ng maganda candidate na. Walang discrimination na naganap. Wala clang mairereklamo sa MEO

  9. Putang inang HEIGHT REQ na yan!!! Kailangan may specific na tangkad ang isang babae para magtanim ng puno??
    Si Miss Honduras Universe 2012 nga pinayagan eh.
    Saka discrimination po un sa isang tao para sukatin ang height mo para sa trabaho na di naman kailangang may aabutin kang box o paninda sa pinakamataas na bahagi ng rack sa dept store.
    May afvocacy kaung nalalaman tapos ganyan kau makapaddiscriminate sa height?
    Sana bukod sa height ay sinukat nyu naden ung tangos ng ilong ng bawat candidates, ung sukat ng chin, ung sukat ng paa, ung kaitiman ng balat nila, ung sukat ng talukap, ung sukat ng butas sa ilong, at kung anu ano pa kasi walang pinagkaiba un sa pagsukat ng height para tanggalan sya ng karapatan makasali.
    Height and weight requirements should be remove in beauty pageants!!!! NOW NA!!!
    Hayaan nyu sila makasali man lang kung ayaw nyu panalunin.

    • Ang kitid ng utak mo baklah… di nga pumasa sa height requirement. Anong gusto mo ibend ng mEO ang rules nila NO. Sanay ka kasi sa utak pinoy na “pwede na yan”

    • puta! bat nagpapageant pa kung wala palang requirements.. ang boba mo bakla… hala! balik sa parlor at gupitan mo bulbol ko! pronto!

    • wHAt’s the point of joining a competition if you know the organizers will not let you win? kaya nga may mga qualifications kc bukod sa beauty pageant yan eh may specific job and duties yung mananalo. Pag nag apply kb ng job as a frontline receptionist sa isang 5 star hotel pero wala kang pleasing personality at over weight ka to the point of obesity na at hindi ka tinanggap masasabi bang discrimination yun?

  10. Parang Binibini lang yan pag di abot sa required height disqualified agad.
    Kasalanan ng ME south africa org yan alam na nga nilang kulang sa required height eh pinadala pa rin.

  11. Sayang naman, sana pinagbigyan ngayon lang, haba kaya ng biyahe from SA to Pinas! Pero Ms. Austria looks a bit like Olivia Culpo.

    • kaya nga di agad sya pinauwi at pinagstay muna for a while para nman maenjoy nya muna pinoy hospitality at ibang pre pageant activities. Mabait pa MEO sa kanya kc kung iba yan pinauwi agad yan. At hindi sya pwede pagbigyan kc magiging precedent yan

  12. She’s already in the competition why not let her finish the contest. She will not win anyway obviously because of her height.
    Sayang nandito na sya, madami naman silang mga talunan after the finals. Anubeeee???

    Do we smell something fishy?

  13. insider earth peeps said she is only 4’11. nothing wrong of being petite but lying about it is another story.

  14. Convenient scapegoat. Maaari naman siya’ng paunlakan sa mga activities without actually placing in the Elemental Court anymore, out of consideration na nasa Pilipinas na siya. Sayang ‘yung airfare.

    I smell fish. Miss Earth-Water, what say you? 😦
