#TurningPhenomenal Series No. 14
This is a pure and unadulterated “fanciful” entry into this series of potential Miss Universe Philippines 2021 for obvious reasons. But I am posting it to engage everyone in a discussion.
Kim Layne of Idaho is, of course, the Miss USA 2020 1st Runner-Up to Asya Danielle Branch. She is also half-Filipina, and proud of it.
Now there are talks that – should there be no staging of Miss USA 2021 due to lack of time – Kim might be pulled up to do the job of participating in the next Miss Universe this coming December. Otherwise, pageant fans have expressed some approval that she could be taken in by Miss Universe Philippines to vie for the national crown.
This is not a wild possibility. But I am pretty sure that resistance from different groups will be in strong play. After all, there are several Filipinas who are just as qualified to represent the country. Why import a delegate?
Our Thai neighbors have already made similar moves to that effect, but more felt in countries in Europe (or Canada) where halfies have been beautifully born and raised. We don’t want to go that route now. Or are we?
What are your thoughts, dear readers?
