SAMANTHA PANLILIO – Pinoy pageant fans were puzzled by Samantha Panlilio missing the Top 20 of the Miss Grand International 2021 in Thailand

Pinoy pageant fans were puzzled by Samantha Panlilio missing in the top 20. On Twitter, “Miss Grand International,” “Samantha Panlilio,” and “Nawat” were in the top 5 trending topics. Nawat Itsaragrisil is the chairman of the pageant.
Netizens felt that Sam wasn’t given her due in the pageant, citing how impressive her performance was during the prelims. Meanwhile, some of them commended her for her hard work and for making them proud despite her early exit.

I honestly feel sad for SamPan. MGI didn’t give her a fair battleground. Being unplaced after showing an outstanding preliminary performance is just unacceptable. #MissGrandInternational2021

Yeah, most of us bashed MGI last year, pero is that the reason why did they not place SamPan to top 20? Where’s professionalism????? Kesyo na-affect ang score niya because of SamBer’s revelation last year, like whaaaaat???

Felt really bad for SamPan for doing a very hardwork to prepare yet she didn’t get waht she deserves to have and to be. We are still proud of you @SamanthaPanlil Thanks for raising our flag!
