  1. Good point xyz.

    The double standards of “scrutiny” is perhaps the perception politicians, or corrupt politicians to be specific, are a dime a dozen. Corruption is almost a given. In contrast, there are annually only six BbP queens that represent the Philippines at an international stage where the country is an established powerhouse.

    The unfortunate incident of Samantha Lo’s fake passport dilemma, whether knowingly or unknowingly, occurred in France. It was an unexpected and embarrasing blow to national pride and in addition to millions of global pageant fans to witness.

    I agree. It is a double standard. Hopefully Samantha and BPCI can learn and grow from this sad circumstance.

  2. While Samantha is being vilified for the unfortunate turn of events, how many politicians, celebrities, multinational business entrepreneurs do we physically see (as in literally) obtain their Philippines passports?

    Was there an indisputable proof of ill-intent on Samantha’s part?

    Dethronement, uninviting for future activities will only solidify the notion that BPCI is such a vindictive and punitive enterprise, which is kind of ironic for their message of women empowerment.

    Whether Samantha will be doing activities associated with BPCI is almost inconsequential at this time. She already did what she intended to do: represent Philippines in an international pageant.

  3. I think she will be pageantry-blacklisted or something … she can still do modeling or commercials

  4. REPUBLIC ACT No. 8239 – PHILIPPINE PASSPORT ACT OF 1996
    2. Uses or attempts to use any passport which was secured in any way by reason of any false statements, shall be punished by a fine of not less that Fifteen thousand pesos (15,000) nor more than Sixty thousand pesos (60,000) and imprisonment of not less that three (3) years, but not more than ten (10) years;

    May admission of getting a fixer from her parents. Unfair talaga ang Philippine justice system. Selective justice won again. Tsk tsk samantala yung maliliit tinotokhang!

    • Hinde porke kumuha ng fixer, peke ang passport. Kung di mo pa alam ang detalye wag masyado oa. Small knowldge is dangerous.

    • @ Patriotic Am not Attorney like Patitay, but (just) MY understanding is that the falsification is willful/deliberate. I seriously doubt any malice on SAL’s part. Minalas lang talaga siya.

  5. Her fighting spirit is commendable! It’s the winning aura that every beauty queen should possess!

    But being a “spitfire vixen” and scribing words like “Bullshit” and “stupid” in social media is so unqueenly and tawdry!

    Lee Kuan Yew once said that the “Philippines is a very forgiving society”……. not anymore! Especially for those who are “pseudo-Filipino” or in vernacular “nakiki-Filipino.”

    Yes, Samantha! You can still be a beauty queen! But not in the Philippines in anymore, try USA instead! After all, you are an American citizen, right? Ma-traffic na sa Filipinas, huwag ka na makisiksik!

    BPCI should not dethrone her because she earned that title! But she should be removed in future BPCI activities & events and she not also be given the opportunity to have her final walk at Binibining Pilipinas 2020!

  6. Uuwi ba siya ng Pinas para harapin mga ginawa niya? May lawyer na ba siya? Or babalik siyang US to avoid legal battle?

  7. To Madam Stella Araneta, thank you for trusting me to carry the title of Binibining Pilipinas Grand international, for seeing my potential to perform in this competition.

    YAS GIRL. BUT LAST MINUTE, YOU WE’RE NOT REALLY CARRYING THE TITLE. girlllllll…. lol

    Lakas maka thank you pero puro shade pa kay BPCI. ni hindi mo nga sila tinatag sa post or hashtag. tapos mag tthank you ka.

    hahahaha. wait, message of gratitude? or Farewell speech.. Resign ka nalang then take a rest. 26.. malay mo makasali ka pa next year sa ibang pageant.. but before that… kuha ka na ng legit na docs. ehehehe

    • Para mapatunayan na may claim siya sa Filipino citizenship, kelangan at the time of her birth ay Filipino citizen ang tatay niya. Kapag wala mai-present na documents ang tatay niya, Anjanette Abayari yan!

    • Practice practice muna pag May time
      Pero wala na yata since she’s already 26-27
      Can’t believe A&Q and the BPCI allowed her to walk onstage like that . Hindi pure self confidence . Dapat May Sikap para May nilaga

  8. Yes Samantha, truly “it’s been a hell of a ride.”
    Live, triumph, fail and learn.
    Now it is time to move the hell on!

    All the best.

  9. She’s the worst BbPilipinas representative since Mariel De Leon. I still can’t forget her, “I will give you the performance you’ve never seen before”. Of course you did Sam, you’re the Macedonia version of the Philippines.

  10. off topic

    postponed ang RH
    atat na atat kasi punta sa Bolivia eh hindi naman fake passport nya
    LOL

  11. Gorg and well-spoken! You should’ve been MUP, Sam. Kaso dun naman biningay sa nganga sumagot

    • She was well-loved naman by pinoy fans even as MGIP until lumabas yung pamemeke ng passport, yun yung sumira sa kanya. Just imagine kung sa MU sya nagkalat, baka isumpa na sya ng mga pinoy.
      She is gorgeous…yes, until she moves.
      Well-spoken…well, maayos ang English sentence construction ang mas akmang term, and that’s because she grew up in the states.

  12. Thank you Sam for representing our country. You did very well. You are a symbol of modern Filipina. Empowered and independent. You are amazing and made us proud. Good luck to your endeavors. Don’t mind the envious haters. You are gorgeous and they’re not. You’re pretty and they’re not. You’re sexy and they’re not.

    We love you. Maraming salamat Miss Grand International Philippines Samantha Ashley Lo.

    You can still try for Miss World but not Miss Earth. Joining from BBP to MEP is like downgrading from Iphone X to Iphone 4.

    We love you.

    World peace 🙂

    • That is just so rude to debase Miss Earth!! It’s been around for 19 years and it has a good advocacy. Climate change is in time and it’s a big problem right now.

      • I’m not debasing MEP or anything I was just stating the fact that BBP is more prestigious and that it’s rare for a crowned BBP queen to crossover to ME.

    • hello at least Miss Earth di niya kailangan ng passport. CHAROT.

      She can’t join naman tlaga miss earth. dahil ni wala naman siyang advocacy for the mother earth. but if i were to choose between MW and ME? baka ME na lang. mas makabuluhan. mas transparent sila. lol

  13. The farewell speech is well crafted. Good luck Miss Philippines. Next stop Miss Earth Philippines. No passport, visa and traveling needed. I am sure your will and determination is what is needed in that ME pageant. Start to look for your advocacy for mother Earth.

  14. Kung ano man kina labasan at questionable pagiging pinay nya wala din naman magagawa pagngitngit nyo. Hindi mag dethrone ang bbp. It will be just like how Cortessi was missing and zara the ms earth philippine air crowned the winner.
    Like i said di naman pupunta yan dun kung may alam sya na mali sa docs nya. Pinaghirapan nya din manalo sa bbp if may problem sila NG bbp magusap dun. No hate di naman natin alam story of each side

  15. Anong safe safe ka dyan. Hindi pa namin alam ang buong kwento. Wala ang buong story mo at lalong wala pang buong story ng BPCI at DFA. Mag guest ka muna kay Tulfo ng magkaalaman. #ALYASPIYOK Samantha Ashley Lo MISS GRAND PILI-PINS

    • Ingitera! Ginamit mo pa talaga ang pangalan ni Catriona para lang makapag hasik ka ng galit mo.

      • I do have social media and I check the news regularly. There is no detailed explanation given on the contradicting statement given by Sam and BPCI. Also DFA also gave their statement but no detailed information. Since Sam represented our country, she is also needs to clear everything and not just move forward without us knowing what really happened. This will also help future candidates on the things they really need to prepare and make sure in case they really want to pursue their dream of becoming a beauty queen.

  16. Paalam na ba ito bago ma-dethrone? Ngayon bigla nagpapasalamat na sa A&Q at BPCI after ang outburst at paglaglag sa kanila. Si Caloy naman ngayon ang hindi pinasalamatan. This girl has some serious issues. Hope you are humbled by your previous actions, Sam! And also, fix your passport before aiming for another pageant. Pasalamat ka pa nga eh kasi fasification of documents yun eh. The DFA rescued you in Paris kasi serious offense yung ginawa mo eh. Dapat nga yata US government tumulong dito kasi di naman yan Pinoy!
