    ok, all that fraud thing aside, in that recent sunday times article, she said the pigini and all that was because she was trying to speak singlish........

    hello, that was a pretty damn bad forced ang mo accent i was hearing. it was definitely not an attempt at singlish.

    Ris Low gives up title
    MISS Ris Low has resigned as Miss Singapore World 2009, days after her past conviction for credit card fraud was exposed.
    The organiser of the local beauty pageant, ERM World Marketing, said in a statement on Tuesday afternoon she will no longer represent Singapore at Miss World 2009 in South Africa.
    ERM said it will be interviewing a new representative to represent Singapore at Miss World 2009 in the coming days and will announce her shortly.
    The organiser said it has met Ms Low and her parents and 'they have agreed to allow their daughter to resign from the crown as we feel is in the best interest for the Miss Singapore World Pageant and Singapore at large.
    'We are accepting her resignation,' said ERM.
    On Ms Low's conviction in May and her bipolar disorder, ERM said there was no way of checking if a contestant has a criminal record or suffering from depression.
    'Ris Low was determined, well behaved and performed well throughout the 2 month competition and even went on to win eight special awards. This is not easy task to accomplish from a group of 22 contestants. With her good performance and beauty, she excelled in the competition.'
    On her command of English language, which has been criticised by the public, the organiser said: 'We felt that person who made fun of her on YouTube was malicious and did not do her justice. The video clip was presented in a way to ridicule her.
    'The incident was a one-time interview which misled the Singapore public to believe she spoke English poorly. During the Grand Finals competition held at the Shangri La hotel on the July 31, she spoke perfectly good English, had a good answer (short, sharp and sweet) and performed very well to impress the 11 judges that she was good enough to win.
    'So perhaps her spoken English could also be an effect from her Bipolar disorder.'
    ERM said it felt sorry for Miss Low but added: 'We cannot compromise on our contest rules, regulations and the image of the Miss Singapore World Pageant.'
    ERM, which broke its silence only on Monday said it did not give any comments earlier to the media and press because 'we were taken aback by this incident and we did not have any documentary evidence to justify the allegations and could be faced with legal implications later'.
    'Ris Low committed this offence as a young offender, and we had to be sensitive to handle any comments delicately where a young offender is concerned. The treatment would be different if she was over 21 years of age,' it added.
    'We like to add that this is the first time in Singapore beauty pageant history that such an incident has occurred. We had to be careful with the approach.'

    ERM is blaming public criticism and media for having to react the way they did. Not surprising though: if Ris Low had indeed informed ERM of her conviction and they'd indeed say it's OK as long as it's not made public, then they would had been the ones squarely in the spotlight instead. No idea what really happened, but my hunch is that ERM really didn't know.

    Either way, are they referring to the video where Ris Low was interviewed, or the many spoofs done of her? I thought the original video was already telling enough of her problems with English, something that she admitted to herself. Now they're saying that she actually speaks very well. Who to believe?

    The organiser blamed the Youtube video for making fun of her. How can that be when that interview was conducted by a TV program, the unedited version was already bad enough.

    There are actually 2 unedited videos, one is the BOOMZ video, the other one is the DUDE video conducted inside Singapore Flyer. Both showed how bad her English language is, on 2 separate occasions.
    Even the replies she gave to newspapers interviews are condemned one.

    The organiser and Ris Low are really a match made in heaven.

    I haven't seen the Singapore Flyer version before, so no clue what was said in that. But you're right: ERM is really blaming the bipolar disorder - it's all that fault, even poor English.

    ERM has worded their statement very diplomatically. On one hand, they are able to go ahead and select another contestant, on the other hand they give enough space for Ris and her parents to deal with the non-pageant repercussions of her big boo boo in the whole saga. I think ERM's blaming of the media is an inevitable step because they have to do that in order to make themselves look not too bad (who wants to take the blame for a wrong decision in selection?). We can understand their stand.
    But right now, it is left to see still, if ERM will take any legal action against Ris.

    i think there is a youtube video where there is some guy imitating her speech in the boomz video........ maybe it's that?

    otherwise i don't really get what the organiser is saying.

    it is not as if the video is a pure youtube video, is it?

    It is very unlikely that ERM will start a court action against Ris. The legal costs far outweigh any possible damages and/or even the enforcement of a damages order.
