Contraversy



Thai pageant fans have expressed their dismay on social media after the anticipated beauty contest did not crown Thai top model Kusuma “Kung” Chawdon as the new Miss Universe Thailand on Saturday night.

Much like the Philippines, rooting for beauty pageants is a favorite pastime in Thailand, and things got ugly when the committee announced Chalita “Namtan” Suansane, 21, a science student from Samut Prakarn, as the new Miss Universe.



Kusuma, who people said performed well in the contest, did not even make it to the top five.

The model is signed with Wilhelmina New York and works mostly in the U.S. She has also been featured in campaigns for domestic designer brands such as Issue, TheOddyssee and CPS.

Over the weekend, unhappy hardcore pageant fans flocked to leave comments on the official Facebook page of Miss Universe Thailand. Many demanded a press conference on why Kusuma was not crowned the most beautiful girl in the kingdom.

"I give up my respect for this pageant contest. You hurt the feelings of all pageant fans around the world. People around the world think Kung deserves the title, but you ditched her! You have to issue a statement! Why did Kungnot make it to top five? All pageant fans are ready to throw a bomb at you," Tararat Brown said.

The most disturbing thing about the comment was not Tararat speaking for pageant fans “around the world,” or his casual bomb threat, but the fact this is the top comment that has over 200 likes.

"I feel sorry for Kusuma "Kung" Chawdon. The judges were blind. You need to change the whole panel. RIP," Alisa Martini commented.
