The controversial dethronement of this year’s Binibining Pilipinas Universe, Maria Venus Raj, has become a trending topic for weeks in the news, talk shows and online forums. This Saturday, Raj explains her side as she proves that she is worthy of the title and crown in “The Bottomline with Boy Abunda.”
Raj was dethroned by the Bininbining Pilipinas Charties Inc. (BPCI) due to the inconsistencies discovered in her birth certificated that she submitted. However, for the first time in 46 years, BPCI pulled out its decision with the condition that Raj may have her title and crown back if she can show her Philippine passport and for humanitarian reasons.
Rumors have been circulating that Raj is enjoying all the issues and drama because she’s getting free publicity. But what is she really thinking about? How affected is her family? With all the support that she’s getting, can the Filipinos hope that she can bring home the Miss Universe crown? What makes her different from the beautiful candidates of Puerto Rico, Venezuela and Mexico? Does she have enough wit to outshine the rest of the finalists in the question and answer portion?
Find out as Venus Raj beauty-queen skills get tested by the country’s King of Talk Boy Abunda in “The Bottomline” this Saturday after the primetime telecast of Banana Split on ABS-CBN.
