Russia lends a beauty to Sakartvelo2011-10-08 18:03
No good luck for beauty contests in Georgia! Once it was a married woman with a poor legal record. This year's Miss Georgia is... a Russian citizen. Jeannette Kerdikoshvili, 19, who was crowned Miss Georgia 2011 on October 1 acquiring the right of representing the country at Miss Universe contest in Great Britain, has a Russian - not Georgian - passport. Oh, these women are so cunning!
"Woman is flighty..." . She may change herself and everything including citizenship. This is what Miss Georgia 2011 as well as all citizens of Sakartvelo saw for themselves. On October 1 Batumi held the final awarding the title of Georgia's first beauty and a diamond diadem to Jeannette Kerdikoshvili, 19. The country did not have enough time to admire the young lady when a scandal flared up. As it turns out, cunning Miss 2011 is not a citizen of Georgia. This is not all: she has a Russian passport. A US or European passport would be much better. Yes, the story looks like a real scandal.
Fastidious journalists watched the winner closely and learned that Jeannette had lost her Georgian citizenship a year before exchanging it for the Russian one. Her old passport and ID were cancelled. This fact does not seem to be a problem to her: she lives in Saint-Petersburg and she came to Batumi to participate in the beauty contest. She does not even have a permanent resident status in Mikheil Saakashvili's favorite town.
Yet the contest rules are rigid: even the most beautiful girl in the world can't take part in the contest if she is not a citizen of Georgia. There is a special clause in the application form that all diamond diadem challengers must fill in. Most probably, Jeannette was not totally sincere but truth was revealed and now nobody knows what to do about it. However, it should be remarked for justice's sake, that there are three versions.
For instance, the Georgian ministry of justice assures that the dishonest girl really lost her citizenship by changing it for a Russian passport. Ia Kitsmarishvili, head of Image Center company in charge of beauty contests in Sakartvelo, assures that Jeannette has double citizenship - Russian and Georgian. The winner herself swears to have only one citizenship - Georgian. What a mystery!
