Disputed title: Binibining Pilipinas-Universe 1991
Pageant problem: This dusky buxom beauty possessed a sex appeal that would have had the whole world in awe. Unfortunately, she did not possess the citizenship that would have made her eligible to represent the Philippines in the Miss Universe 1991 pageant. She is American.
Queenly aftermath: Abayari, who was replaced by Alou Gonzalez, went on to reign as a sex symbol. She also became a sought-after movie actress. She even got to play the iconic Pinoy heroine Darna in Darna: Ang Pagbabalik in 1994. However, in 1999, Abayari was jailed in Guam for alleged possession of shabu. She has since regained her freedom and is now enjoying a quiet life in the US.
