A solution for Miss Universe New Zealand

June 17th, 2012 at 8:25 am by David Farrar

The HoS reports:

Beauty pageant winner-in-limbo was spotted out shopping yesterday, apparently with time on her hands as a dispute over her eligibility is sorted out.

The newly crowned Miss Universe New Zealand may be stripped of her tiara because she was born in South African and is not yet a New Zealander. She has yet to fulfil any assignments as the crown holder. Yesterday, she told the Herald on Sunday she could not comment. However, a friend said the 22-year-old was looking forward to the situation being resolved and she was remaining positive.

The waitress has called in lawyers after being told to give up her tiara by organisers. The Herald reported pageant director Val Lott delivered a letter to Bohm, advising her that she was ineligible to represent New Zealand.

Miss Bohm should file a dispute with the , claiming barring her is a trade barrier against South Africa.

It is understood Bohm’s is unlikely to come through in time for Donald Trump’s Miss Universe pageant.

Why not? If Bill Liu can get his, why not Avianca Bohm? A quick citizenship decision by the Government could be a popular move!

    She clearly doesn’t have enough identities to get the urgent straight-to-the-top package.

    I disagree it would not be popular, NZ citizenship should not be for sale or available to anyone who fails the character test as Miss Bohm clearly does.

    As organiser of the pageant, Mrs Lott should be prosecuted for fraud.
    She took forms and monies from people she knew personally and knew they didn’t qualify for entry under the rules of the competition.
    Further she has shown she doesn’t understand the responsibilities of directorship nor the moral judgement to be leading young people in any role so should have the Role she has with the pageant removed from her.

    Further Miss Bohm knew she didn’t qualify for the competition according to Mrs Lott when she entered and should be stripped of her title and prosecuted alongside Mrs Lott.
    The Australian who came 2nd should also suffer the same fate.

    Miss Wellington who is a bona fide new Zealander should be awarded the tile and represent us at the global competition.

    I don’t like how hung up they are about her citizenship. If she is a permanent resident and has been here most of her life, then I think she has every right to call herself a Kiwi. Change the rules to allow permanent residents to compete. Simple!

    Perhaps someone here could volunteer to adopt her?

    Avianca Bohm should be a full New Zealand citizen before the week is out.

    That’s a bit rough. She may be a bimbo but one day she might make a great housewife.
    I’m totally on her side. What a great gal to stand up for herself.
    In many international beauty contests the rules specify residency as the only criteria. In San Francisco, estimates are that 70+ % of residents were not born here. You’re going to be shit out of luck for many occupations if you were to specify citizen only eligibility.
    Right up Winston Peter’s alley though and one way to make NZ a socialist xenophobic backwater is to bang on about immigrants

    Why have rules when people obviously cannot be bothered abiding by them? It is part of an international competition not just a little kiwi..”oh we’ll change the rules just for you, sweetheart..” Mind you this govt behaves the same way, changing the rules to employ that pommy tosser at treasury..What I like about the Safas I know , is that they are usually sticklers for the rules..It is quaint and old fashioned in a country where everything can be bent , for love , money or fame.

    Hey, three years ago the winner was a construction project manager and had her pilot’s licence. Hardly a bimbo.

    In Canada you don’t even have to be a woman; you can be a guy with a strap-on vagina. In comparison, the fact that she’s a permanent resident rather than a citizen doesn’t seem that big of a deal.

    Full of your usual sweetness and light, V2. If you are amongst those who don’t care, a perfectly legitimate position for you to take, you should not feel compelled to make a comment.

    Ohaha Out come those that protest too much.

    Its a bimbo contest and it has rules like all bimbo contests. So the young Lady ignored the rules. Hard luck. Before Bill Lui and Dover Sameuls citizenship wasn’t for sale.
    Don’t like the rules. Go away or lobby to have the rules changed.

    calander girl. one gets fed up with whinging people. This for you. Its not rude just sets out the case.http://screencast.com/t/F5DPv8Jfi

    Tas & Ras
    wake up guys.
    New Zealand Miss Universe.

    The entry date is when they hand in the signed form and their money, a contract has been agreed too, they are Kiwi’s or not on that date and have signed off on it and should be held accountable as should Mrs Lott.

    Don’t tell us you have a day job where you make serious decisions that affect lives please, what companies do you work for so we can avoid them!

    I feel for the third placed girl who had two imposters above her in the winnings, that both the organiser, sponsor and chief Judge knew about, I hope she sues their arses off as well as competes at the Miss Universe Competition as Miss NZ Universe as is her right according to the rules.

    So, as far as many are concerned, she is eligible for a shot at being the most beautiful ‘in the universe’, but fails to qualify because she fails to hold a piece of paper which ‘proves’ she is ‘from’ New Zealand.

    Does this mean that New Zealand isn’t part of the the universe as we know it? Where is New Zealand’s bit of paper proving it exists, and was it shown to the judging panel?

    If one wasn’t produced will we all disappear in a puff of fairy-dust according to the rules of the judging panel?

    Maybe the elegant reason for all this has been staring us in the face all this time.

    She’s too beautiful to be from New Zealand and this competition has proved it.
