Is it fair for the one of the judges of this pageant to be Virgelia's boyfriend? Also one of the judges is Wilhem Zeda who actually made dresses for the contestants. Am I the only one who sees a conflict of interest in both cases? I've heard that in this pageant the judges accept bribes. 

Today we heard a conversation in women's restroom at Redondo Beach Performing Arts center, where Karina Ayrapetova (one of the contestants) was discussing with her mom and one other lady to pay a bribe to one of the judges to increase her chances of winning. They had a dialogue asking if a certain person will definetely be a judge and Karina was saying we must give him a bribe, lets do it for sure. I think only a girl with low self-esteem would stoop so low to offer a bribe in an Asian contest when you are not even Asian and shouldn't have been participating in the first place. Because according to the rules of the pageant, the girls have to be at least 20% Asian and she is 100% Armenian. Now we  know who will be the winner, the person with the biggest wallet.

I've participated in this pageant as well and I have learned about this Scam first hand. They make you take lessons with their coaches and make dresses with their designers so they can generate additional profit. The prices they charge are ridicoulusly high and if you refust to pay you become their enemy and they try to kick you out of the pageant.

Complaint Response by Virgelia Productions, Inc.

AUTHOR: Virgelia Productions, Inc. - (United States of America)

Virgelia Productions, Inc., owner and producer of the Miss Asia USA Cultural Pageant offers this response to the published complaint #970499 submitted Saturday November 17, 2012, posted Saturday November 17, 2012 as reported by an Anonymous party: 



Though, many defamatory statements have been made in this complaint, Virgelia Productions, Inc., concluded an internal investigation and would follow with filing a law suit against the party and seek all legal remedies as permitted under the law. Certainly, this anonymous person has made reckless and irresponsible statements, and must be accountable for such defamatory statements.  The alleged factual basis for this anonymous complaint is wholly false and completely inaccurate.  Its falsity can be clearly demonstrated with independently verifiable facts.  First, the complaint was posted more than 12 hours prior to the start of the actual Cultural Pageant, secondly Armenia is considered to be part of the Asian Continent, something the anonymous individual failed to know or recognize, unfortunately there was no Armenia Delegate for this Pageant, and third the existence of uncorroborated hearsay that a judge would be bribed.  Here are the verifiable facts:  (i) No judge was identified as the recipient of a bribe, (ii) the Forensic Department of KPMG, one of the largest accounting firms in the world, is in independent control of the judge's scorecards and the tabulation of the scores and no one in the organization knows the scores until the envelopes are opened, (iii) all participating Delegates are introduced to the advisors, staff, vendors, consultants, etc., but at no time are required or obligated to engage their services or follow their advice or recommendations.  If you wish to verify any of these facts, please visit the Pageant's official website (www.missasiausa.org) or feel free to give us a call. 



Unfortunately, it is all too easy to defame hard-earned reputations with unsubstantiated, scurrilous rumors and innuendo through websites that unfortunately do not verify or are required to verify such complaints.  Some anonymous, disgruntled individual has sought to injure the excellent long-standing reputation of the Miss Asia USA organization with false allegations borne of cruel intentions.



Miss Asia USA Cultural Pageant will be celebrating its 25th Anniversary in 2013.  Within the organization there continues to be a dedicated staff and group of volunteers made up of professionals that year after year are give the responsibility to administer, and carry out the Miss Asia USA Cultural Pageant from Delegate Recruitment, Delegate Pageant Training, i.e. walking, modeling, posing, photo shoos, Delegate participation in Beyon the Beauty Leadership Academy, Press Delegate Launching Fashion Show and lastly the culminating Cultural Pageant Competition Show.  Throughout this process of preparation, Dlegates and Queens, attend cultural, educational, networking, leadership, and community events as Ambassadors of Goodwill & Unity representing their country, in addition to moments of spotlight in selected "Fashion Shows" and/or "Red Carpet Events." 



To maintain a continuing unbiased selection of the Cultural Pageant Queen, a panel of 7-11 judges are selected and are responsible for the selection of the Pageant Winner.  Each judge represents success in their selected industry as they may be a CEO, President, Chairman/Chairwoman, Artist, Actor, City Mayor, or other highly achieved distinguised professional and/or public official.  KPMG-Forensic Department, one of the largest world-wide accounting firms is given the responsibility for tabulation and score reporting fo the last 9 years.
