Jehza Huelar indeed walked the Miss Supranational 2018 pageant stage clad in a ripped gown last December 7.
When she posted this photo with the Philippine flag, she was perfection from head to toe.
But a few hours later, her Instagram story revealed the safety pins holding her whole gown in place.
The only detail she provided was that it happened after the announcement of top ten.
Netizens were quick to speculate that she was sabotaged.
Some labeled it as "fake news."
But Mister Supranational Philippines Marco Poli, who watched the pageant, said that when Jehza's name was called as one of the top ten semifinalist, the zipper of "her gown really broke."
He stressed it was not fake news.

Marco is the country's bet for the pageant's male version. The finals is taking place today, December 9, (December 8 in Poland).
Good job, Jehza! Good luck, Marco.
