Miss Germany says the media is manipulating the contestants.
After Miss Universe 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach’s controversial win last December 21, a post-pageant interview from Miss Germany Sarah-Lorraine Reik was posted online where she said she was disappointed with the results and that none of the girls voted for Miss Philippines.
Days after, Sarah-Lorraine has taken to Instagram to air her side of story.
“Hello beautiful people from all over the world. I'm gonna write a true statement from all my heart by tonight. There are some tryin' to hold me back to not start a war with media but I want to stop the fooling for money. Especially to the passionated fans from the Philippines, I love your country - I was there with my mom in 2013 to help in medical care after Haiyan and I made a lot of friends there,”
“I want Pia to have the fans And support she deserves and I want all our Queens to get the LOVE they deserve. Each and every one of them deserves respect and support, no matter what media is trying to tell you about who they are. Sadly there is a business behind it, a billion dollar business that only works with the right attention, the right scandals to make a lot of money. They don't care for 81 beautiful souls that just follow their dream, making friends for a lifetime. Please be patient. I will write with effort and all my heart, for each and every one of you, for 80 girls and for Pia #missuniverse #missuniverso #confidentlybeautiful.”
