Miss Eco Teen Philippines winner, Vanessa Walters is stripped of her title due to multiple violations of the pageant’s rules.
Her unruly character and displays of unruly photos on her social media came to be the grounds for her to be unfit of the title Miss Eco Teen. The Miss World Organization, labeled her actions as “misrepresentation of her credentials,” “unprofessional behavior,” and “indecency.”
Miss World National Director Arnold Vegafria oversees that all title holders must be held accountable for their actions since not only do they carry the organization’s name but they also serve as a role model for the youth. The organization’s statement said: “The Miss World Philippines Organization wishes to maintain high ethical and moral standards and uphold the integrity of the title holders.”
It is said that Walters exhibited discourteous behavior towards Vegafria by walking out on meetings, failure to promote her title, and refusal to sign the contract with Miss World. A recent photo that she uploaded on her Instagram was deemed “indecent” because of it being borderline nude.
Walter’s position of Miss Eco Teen will be replaced by Mary Daena Zaide Resurreccion and will compete in her place.
