25-year-old model Seifert was disqualified from Bb. Pilipinas 2 days before the coronation night because the management discovered that she has a sexy photo-spreads in FHM magazine last 2007.
“I really want to portray that i’ve grown up, that i could also be edgy and you know, we’re only gonna be slim once in our lives,” Seifert explains regarding the sexy pictorial.
“It’s not that it was a secret that it was meant to be hidden from them. The lesson for me is that in life although we live one day at a time, there are certain things that could have a consequence long term,” she added.
The management of Bb. Pilipinas, on the other hand, stood firm with their decision.
Lorraine Shuck, one of the organizers of the Miss Philippines and Miss Earth pageants, said there’s no reason why they won’t accept Sandra Seifert if she joins Miss Philippines 2009 as long as she pass all the criteria for the pageant.
