Mariel de Leon at the center of another controversy

by | Entertainment

In a previous interview with PEP, Mariel de Leon said that the online bashing she has received is the worst part of her reign; unfortunately, she is going through that cycle again after comments on Catriona Gray drew flak from netizens.

It all started when de Leon, the reigning Binibining Pilipinas – International, said that she prefers “dark horses” to win a title in the national pageant, instead of the popular ones.

“I like a good underdog. Ayoko yung pinaka-popular… I like the dark horse, I think, as they say. I like Sandra Lemonon, Candidate No. 35 yata. Tapos yung number 21… I don’t know her name kasi true Filipina beauty yung No. 21,” she said.

Her comment did not sit well with the fans of Gray who is considered as one of the most popular candidates in this year’s Binibining Pilipinas.

De Leon drew even more criticism after she gave Gray a piece of constructive criticism on the Binibining Pilipinas 2018: Road to the Crown episode which was aired last March 11.

In the said episode, the candidates of the pageant had to go through what seems to be a mock question-and-answer portion wherein Gray said that music helps her connect to people.

“My strength is that… I feel everything very strongly and I find that when I sing. Through music, it helps me connect to people,” Gray eloquently said.

After giving her answer, de Leon decided to air her opinion by saying that Gray’s way of speech is a “tiny bit scripted”.

“I really love your confidence and the way you speak. But sometimes, it seems just a tiny bit scripted,” de Leon said.

Beauty pageant enthusiasts took it to Twitter to defend Gray who has already proven her strength as a beauty queen when she finished as a Top 5 finalist in Miss World 2016.

On the other hand, De Leon decided to also defend herself through a series of tweets.

She also said on a now-deleted tweet that her comments on the show have been edited wrong.

“Adding and editing is the key! #ratingspamore,” she tweeted.

Amid the online war on the Twitterverse, Gray said that she accepts de Leon’s constructive criticism and that she wants everyone to stop bashing the reigning beauty queen.

Binibining Pilipinas 2018 will happen on March 18 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum wherein Gray will be competing and de Leon will be passing on her title.
