Not a Hoax: Commission on Audit has a beauty pageant!
It’s all about the auditors who manage to look good despite work-related pressure.
Remember Heidi Mendoza during her kick-ass whistleblower days? Now, she’s organizing a beauty pageant.
We guarantee that this is true...even if we had a hard time believing it at first.
The Philippine Star’s Michael Punongbayan reports that Commission on Audit (COA) Commissioner Heidi Mendoza announced earlier this month that the search is on for Mr. and Miss COA 2014, a pageant that’s "about discovering audit personnel who display the most natural beauty and remarkable qualities amid the pressures of their jobs."
According to Mendoza, the contest won’t have a bikini or swimwear category but will have the sportswear, business or corporate attire and formal, or evening wear competitions. There will also be talent and question and answer portions.
The pageant proper and coronation night will be held at the COA Sports and Cultural Complex on May 9. The winning Mr. and Miss COA will get P15,000 in cash, a sash, a trophy, and a bouquet.
