the two toppled down Ruffa's total scores in the final tally still remained a mystery to me. But as I'm only a mere pageant spectator who is not privy with the real actions behind the scenes and how the final deliberation had been made, all I could possibly do is to speculate based on the resources at hand.
Good thing, Ruffa was all gracious in her defeat. After all, representing the country in the world's oldest surviving beauty derby and eventually winning the Miss World Second Princess and Queen of Asia and Oceania title in a sea of world-class contenders is definitely a spectacular feat not every beauty delegate could have the chance to achieve. Along with Megan Young and Valerie Weigmann, Ruffa for me is certainly one of the most gorgeous few Filipinas who have ever graced the Miss World stage.
