What’s up with these Miss Earth candidates passing out?
Perhaps they need to eat burgers with a ton of fries on the side.
We can’t help but think about the "weight issue" again, as another Miss Philippines-Earth candidate, Benz Bianzon, also passed out backstage over the weekend. She collapsed during the Q&A portion. She claimed that fatigue did her in.
Days earlier, on April 30, Miss Philippines-Earth Leslie Ann Pine collapsed during the pageant’s bikini competition on April 30.
During that incident, fellow contestant Pircelyn Pialago, who gained instant if unwanted fame for saying that Pine had "passed away," had revealed, "We’re under weight watch.

Pine, who is alive and well, subsequently denied being under weight watch.
