Newly-crowned Miss Earth Katherine Espin dared her Filipina rival, Imelda Schweighart, to prove that she underwent plastic surgery.

Schweighart resigned as Miss Philippines-Earth on Monday after she was caught in a viral video telling supporters after Saturday night's pageant that Espin had work done on her face and chest.

"I’ve never done anything in my face, never. I’ve never even done plastic surgery in my face. No. Her saying that, she will have to prove it I guess," Espin told ABS-CBN News’ Mario Dumaual on Monday night at a dinner reception at Manila Polo Club Forbes Park Makati.

The 23-year-old Espin is the second Ecuadorian to win Miss Earth, a Manila-based pageant that aims to promote environmental awareness. Schweighart failed to reach the semifinals.

Espin also addressed Schweighart's other claim that the yellow Leo Almodal that she wore to the finals was originally meant for the Filipina beauty queen.

The Ecuadorian beauty said Almodal failed to finish her dress in time for the pageant.

“When I got into top 16, I was like, ‘Where’s my dress?’ His assistant was telling me, ‘We didn’t finish. We have this yellow dress. Try this yellow dress.’ I’ve never even tried the yellow dress in my life. I never even knew how it looked on me. They just put it on me and I never knew it was Imelda’s dress,” she said.

Espin said Almodal should take responsibility for the mix-up.

“Imagine, I [did not have] a dress. It was crazy backstage. No one knows about this. I think Imelda got upset about this. She must know that it wasn’t my fault. It was actually a misunderstanding with Leo. He didn’t know what to do. I’m clarifying that right now. Leo will do it on social media and probably have an interview explaining all these issues. It’s his responsibility actually,” she said.

Espin said she accepted Schweighart's apology for her rant, saying she wished the Filipina well in her decision to move on after resigning as Miss Philippines-Earth.

“I have nothing against her. She is a woman. I truly respect her. I hope that anytime, I can be able to talk to her about it. I wish the best for her… I hope she really puts all her best to overcome the issues and be able to make her dreams come true because she really wants to be successful,” she said.

Espin also reiterated no amount of intrigue or hurtful words will ruin her triumph as her country's new international queen, a dream she worked hard to fulfill.

“Despite any of the things that I’ve seen, I am happy with what I’ve done. I’ve done my best. There have been many rumors but I don’t really pay attention to any of that because I know what I’ve done,” she said.

She is also set to take the Bar exams in her country after finishing her law studies.

"I want to practice international law but that will have to wait as I prepare for my projects as Miss Earth," she said.

Espin wants to work with farmers to push her agricultural advocacy.

  3. Lahat naman ata ng sumasali sa pageants eh. They will always have some parts of their bodies surgically altered. Or some non-invasive procedures to enhance their features to make themselves seem 'perfect'.

  4. Miss Earth 2016's rival? Mga bes, walang rivalry dito. Rivalry is something between individuals who are deemed to be equal in almost every way. Kathrine is not on Imelda's level. Katherine is a queen and should not even bother herself to a sore loser like Imelda.

    1. Ang OA mo ha. Pinagsasabi mo jan? Ravals sa pageant! Actually lahat ng candidates! Mema ka pang din eh noh?

      Delete
    2. 1:12, Bes, sa mga pageants or kahit saang competition, competitors ang tawag sa mga kalaban mo sa prize, ang rivalry ay between 2 people lang who are deemed equal, eg. Nora/Vilma, Juday/Claudine, Kathryn/Nadine, Brittney/Christina, etc.

      Delete
    3. 12:25 1:24 "Rival" and "competitor" are the same. Sige tignan mo sa dictionary at thesaurus. Pag tama ako, bigyan mo ko 1000 pesos ha.

      Delete
    4. Actually tama nmn and rival is competitor i checked sa miriam. Pero cguro mas maganda lng gamitin ang word na "rival" for 2 groups/ person gets niyo?

      Delete
    5. Sana nagresearch kayo:
      "Eventhough the two words (rival & competitor) are synonymous, rival has a connotation that the competition is more on a personal basis. So if I go to a marathon and calls 1000 other runners as "my" rival is just plain silly."

      Gets niyo na?

  5. Love it Miss Ecuador, very classy unlike some people I know, *cough* Imelda *cough*

  6. True. Imelda wanted to steal the limelight against the Miss Earth 2016 winner. She wanted to divert the attention of her not being included in the Top 16 by kunwari making a fuss over the yellow gown.

    1. May point ka. I think she was trying to say that she was robbed of the crown because she didn't get to wear that yellow gown. As if naman may mauuto sya sa ganung reasoning.

    1. Oo, candidate nga ito for libel pero ang babaw para pagaksayahan ng panahon. Besides, hindi naman tatagal ang issue, Ms. Earth lang naman to, hindi global warming. For entertainment lang ito, ate.

  10. Hindi ako nagagandahan sa gown. Parang nabibili sa 168 dun sa lugar ng mga souvenir at gowns na pang kasal. Parang kulay mirengue sa palengke.

  11. In my opinion, wala naman masama na may enhancements ka sa sarili mo. Lalo pa kung mas nakadagdag sa confidence mo. Tong si Imelda kasi sinaunang panahon pa mag isip.
