I missed watching this event live on TV. This was held the same night I was hosting a party with college friends, so I totally forgot about it. I heard that this pageant wasn't done very well though. And, I've read from Fashion Pulis that Miss USA Nicole Kelley badmouthed about this pageant and Manila in her Facebook account. Hmmm.. this year's pageant is controversial eh?
