MANILA, Philippines — Pageant organizers disqualified a Binibining Pilipinas contestant from this year's competition allegedly over a sexy shoot done in the past.

On Wednesday, Jonas Gaffud, president of Mercator Models and Aces and Queens beauty queen camp vented his frustration on the disqualification of Kim Ross Delos Santos, contestant 20, on social media.

 

The 26-year-old model was booted out of the competition by the pageant organizer’s legal team, or BPCI, because of a sexy fashion shoot she did in the past. The BPCI has yet to make an official statement.

"Yes, it is true. But our legal department and BPCI are still having a meeting about it,” the article said.

This is not the first time the organizers disqualified a contestant because of a racy shoot. Miss World 2013 Megan Young was also not permitted to join Bb. Pilipinas for the same reason.

An early favorite and a strong contender for the crown, Delos Santos came from the same beauty queen camp where Pia Wurtzbach trained.

Several pageant fans aired their sentiments on Twitter over the disqualification. using the hashtag #JusticeforKimRoss.
