They always used to say that – in beauty pageants – height is might.
But with Miss Universe Philippines, height is an asset, but if one has a middling stance, no problem. There is no minimum requirement starting this 2021.
Some eyebrows will be raised for sure. But we live in an age of inclusivity. And it can only get better for the beautiful Filipinas who did not have the confidence to join because they fall short of the minimum height that our national pageants prescribe to joiners.
So what could that instantly mean? For starters, more applicants will file their form. The Accredited Partners will have less of a headache in selecting their representative/s.
Let’s see who will step in and step up to the call for entries. Who knows? The next Miss Universe of the Philippines might just be petite in height.
