Melanie Marquez was seated at the back of the BBP 2015 judges carrying a placard of candidate no. 34, her niece Wynwyn Marquez. Melanie Marquez paraded down the floor behind the judges table with the placard, egged on by numerous supporters of Wynwyn Marquez seated in the upper sections of the coliseum. The supporters of the other candidates were up in arms with what Melanie Marquez did and they shouted to her, “Bawal yan!” and went on to boo her.
Hosts Toni Gonzaga and Xian Lim eventually announced during the show that Stella Marquez Araneta and or BPCI has formed a committee of five which will invite Filipino designers to design the national costume of the eventual winners in all their respective international pageants. No word yet on the most important evening gown design.
Wynwyn Marquez failed to snatch a crown, despite what some supporters say that she did pretty good in the Question and Answer portion.
Meanwhile, eventual BBP 2015 top plum winner, Miss Universe Philippines 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, rumors say, had her opening number dress sabotaged by allegedly a fellow candidate/s. The dress went missing and when it was eventually found, it was dirty.
Another BBP 2015 scene: When host Toni Gonzaga asked the audience who was the most beautiful candidate, the audience chanted: “XIAN XIAN XIAN” rudely referring to host Xian Lim who is rumored to be gay.
