Miss World Philippines’ new queen Tracy Maureen Perez stumbled onstage twice during the beauty pageant’s coronation night yesterday, Oct. 3. Fans surmised that this may have been caused by the ceremony which lasted for almost seven hours.

A Twitter user, @nielsendanes, showed videos of the Cebuana beauty yesterday, falling onstage before the announcement of winners and shortly after she was crowned. During the first instance that Perez fell, she can be seen assisted back onstage by pageant host Xian Lim and fellow Miss World candidate Emmanuelle Vera. Meanwhile, another video showed her stumbling as the crown slipped from her head.

The coronation ceremony started around 8 p.m. yesterday and ended early morning today, Oct. 4.

One @pcisnotinuse called out the Miss World Organization on Twitter, also yesterday. The netizen pointed out to Miss World that it should prioritize the welfare of its pageant delegates over production value.

“Our Miss World Philippines 2021 Tracy fell twice — first, prior [to] the announcement; second, while taking her walk after being [crowned]. Pagod siya/sila (She/they are tired),” he said. “I hope the organization [thinks] of the welfare of the ladies than having ‘world-class’ production.”

Another netizen, @haksfairie, meanwhile expressed concern over the incident on the same day. She blamed the pageant organization for letting the coronation ceremony run for over six hours.

“Dalawang beses nahulog si Tracy? Kasalanan talaga ‘to ng Miss World. Pinatagal nito [nang] sobra. Napagod at napuyat na yung mga contestant,” she lamented. (Tracy fell down twice? This is really Miss World’s fault. They had the ceremony last this long. The contestants were already tired and sleepless.)

She also noted that the situation should not have happened if the organization managed time and production better.

After several postponements, the Miss World Philippines held its coronation at the Subic Bay Exhibition and Convention Center (SBECC) at the Subic Bay Freeport Zone.

Perez, an industrial engineer from Cebu City, bested 43 other aspirants for the Miss World Philippines crown, inheriting it from Miss World Philippines 2019 Michelle Dee. No competition was held last year due to the government-imposed restrictions on live events because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The national pageant also crowned the country’s representatives in different global tilts:

  • Reina Hispanoamericana Filipinas – Emmanuelle Vera
  • Miss Eco Philippines – Kathleen Paton
  • Miss Multinational Philippines – Shaila Rebortera
  • Miss Tourism Philippines – Tricia Martinez
  • Miss Environment Philippines – Michelle Arceo
  • Miss Eco Teen Philippines – Tatyana Austria

Perez is set to compete in the 70th Miss World pageant in Puerto Rico this December. JB
