Commando Miss Colombia causes flap for going nude (PHOTOS)
With just days before Miss Universe 2011 is crowned, the 89 beauties are already more than set up in Sao Paulo, Brazil -- just like us, where we'll offer you all the exclusive details. And just when we thought everything appeared under control, we've got our first Miss 'Scandalous.' Unfortunately, she is a Latina candidate: Miss Colombia, Catalina Robayo.
The 22-year-old beauty has apparently gotten herself into a scandalous situation after being caught in no underwear on more than one occasion at official events. We got to the bottom of the story.
According to a Fox News report, we've learned that Catalina has on numerous occasions worn the smallest of miniskirts, leaving little to the imagination. The only problem is that she "forgets" to wear underwear.
"[Miss] Colombia had to be told that it was absolutely necessary to wear underwear, and that what she was doing was completely inappropriate," the Fox News source said. "Many people are very upset and uncomfortable with her after photos have emerged in several media outlets where you can see everything."
Fox spoke to Paula Shugart, president of the Miss Universe Organization, who said she was flabbergasted to hear the news about Miss Robayo from her team.
"There were several ladies wearing very short dresses, which is a little disconcerting, but when I saw the picture on the front page of a Colombian newspaper, where you could tell she wasn't wearing underwear, I was very, I mean very surprised," Shugart said.
"Our supervisors spoke to all the participants on the appropriate dress code, and one of our public relations representatives spoke to Robayo, who apparently said that she was wearing underwear. Either way, it's caused quite a scandal here the last few days."
So did she go overboard attending official pageant events sans underwear?
In this image, you see Miss Colombia facing the camera with her pageantmates as she strategically covers herself with a purse:
There's also news of a scandal of another kind, a minor one, after pageant officials returned the bottoms of contestants' bikinis to sponsor Brazil Catalina Swimwear, because they say the bikini bottoms are too tiny for broadcast television. Brazilian bikini designer? Really? What did they expect?
E! Online also contacted Miss Universe representatives, who confirmed that the Fox News report about Robayo was true, but they said they did not want to offer further comment. They also published an image of Robayo showing her goods in a miniskirt, with a censor bar covering her not-so-private area, of course.
AOL Latino will continue to investigate and see what Miss Scandalous, Catalina Robayo, has to say for herself.
Meanwhile, we'd like your thoughts. Is this truly a big deal?
