Miss World favorite Megan Young faces disqualification issue

"Predictable, but she really is the best choice. She is one, if not the most beautiful girl I've seen from the Philippines", says Ecuador's Pageant Expert, Maria Andreina as she releases her Miss World 2013 Final Prediction.

Megan Young increased her chances of taking home the first ever Miss World title to the Philippines by winning the Top Model Competition. But as Megan moves on top of the Miss World point system and to the crown, her topless photos in Rogue Magazine start to dampen her chances, similar to what the photos did to her unsuccessful bid to join Binibining Pilipinas.

The International Business Times, a UK-based news agency where the headquarters of the Miss World Organization is also based, published on its website www.ibtimes.co.uk that Megan's topless poses in the March 2012 issue of Rogue Magazine, a magazine circulated in the Philippines, "has surfaced and drawn ire from the fans."

"Rules are rules when it comes to the Miss World beauty contest. It seems that contestants taking their clothes off is a clear breach of the laws", says one user who sent a letter to IBTimes UK but she requested anonymity. Beauty queen should be seen as role models and not sex object", the letter further said. IBTime UK reported though that the Miss World Organization is "readying to host all 130 official candidates" and that "Miss Philippines remains to be listed on the pageant's official website."
