Binibining Pilipinas candidate #35 Theresa Fenger voluntarily backed out from the pageant due to alleged racy photos from FHM men's magazine and other magazines.
Binibining Pilipinas Charities, Inc., enforces a rule that any candidate who has posed for sexy magazines will be automatically disqualified.
It looks like Ms. Fenger belatedly came to know about the ruling thus realized her indiscretion. This prompted her to withdraw voluntarily from the the competition after weeks of participation in the pre-coronation activities. Incidentally, Ms. Fenger was also the female winner in the Century Tuna Superbods 2009.
Binibining Pilipinas has not yet released an official statement as of this publication. However their website no longer includes the name of Theresa Fenger on the roster of Binibining Pilipinas 2013 candidates.
If we recall, former Binibini candidate, Sandra Seifert, was also disqualified for posing for FHM magazine. But she recovered from that and joined Miss Philippines Earth 2009 and eventually won. She further vindicated herself by placing Miss Earth-Air 1st Runner-up in the Miss Earth Pageant.
Meanwhile, model KC Gonzalez Cajandig from General Santos City was chosen to replace Ms. Fenger.
