(UPDATED) NAGA CITY-- Christi Lynn "Ashley" Landrito McGarry gets to keep her crown as Binibining Pilipinas-Intercontinental.
The Bicolana beauty queen, it will be recalled, already joined the same pageant in 2010 and was even named Queen of Asia and Oceania.
McGarry shared the same doubts with pageant fans.
Yesterday, she also posted the photo above, which she captioned: "Tentative title? Thank you Owen Reyes."
Binibining Pilipinas breaks silence
Borce's statement was later confirmed by the Binibining Pilipinas Charities, Incorporated (BPCI), which posted its official announcement on its Facebook page.
The announcement reads:
"All the winners of the Bb. Pilipinas 2015 pageant will keep their respective and original titles. Contrary to speculations, there will be no switching of titles following questions about the crowning of Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental Christi Lynn McGarry. McGarry is still eligible to compete in the Miss Intercontinental 2015 pageant. Bb. Pilipinas Supranational Rogelie Catacutan will also compete in the Miss Supranational 2015 pageant."
Earlier, the BPCI said: "The Binibining Pilipinas Charities, Incorporated is studying the issue about Christi Lynn McGarry who then competed for Miss Intercontinental 2010. We will update everyone should we arrive at anything final.”
