As it was expected, Myrka Dellanos did not remain silent and immediately responded to those who pointed her out for allegedly selling her votearguing that the group of judges was made up of more people, so it was not the only one that evaluated the qualities of each of the participants.
“But ma’am, I only have one vote. There were 7 other people. I can’t speak about my personal vote, but you have to keep in mind that we are 8 people, not just one, ”she wrote on one occasion.
“We are 8 on the jury, I have one vote. Mathematics is a science and obviously mine is a vote. They must understand that ”, reads another message.
“There is no fraud, that is for sure. But there are 8 judges and they all vote or obviously each person votes in secret and has their own criteria. All the finalists were ready to be Miss Universe.”
