Miss Asia Pacific World 2014 May Myat Noe dethroned

Uneasy lies the head that wears the stolen crown.

A dethroned beauty queen from Myanmar swiped her $100,000 tiara after she was ousted Wednesday for being rude and lying, pageant officials said.

May Myat Noe had an ungrateful attitude since she was crowned Miss Asia Pacific World in May — even after sponsors paid her $10,000 plastic surgery tab, said David Kim, media director for the South Korea-based pageant.

"We thought she should be more beautiful ... so we sent her to the hospital to operate on her breasts," Kim said.

The pageant hoped to turn the 18-year-old into a regional megastar and booked singing gigs and video deals for the teen.

But Noe was unappreciative of every gesture, Miss Asia Pacific World said in a statement released to Asia One News.

The pageant paid for the teen and her mother to visit Seoul for 10 days, but they stayed for three months, in what Miss Asia Pacific World calls an "illegal attempt" to get a visa.

Noe's "ungrateful attitude and (lack of) trustworthiness" forced the pageant to end her three-month reign Wednesday.

The 18-year-old was one of the first contestants from Myanmar to compete in — let alone win — an international beauty contest. A half-century of military rule and self-imposed isolation kept Myanmar contestants off the stage until 2012.

When Noe was crowned in May, it was seen as a new beginning for young, talented beauties. The pageant decided her small breasts could hold her back from stardom, organizers said, so it footed the bill for her plastic surgery, as it had for previous winners.

"It's our responsibility," Kim said. "If she has no good nose, then maybe, if she likes, we can operate on her nose. If it's breasts, then breasts."

Noes whereabouts were unknown following the content's decision to boot the beauty, but she could be back in Myanmar, BBC News reported.

A pageant staffer is tasked with tracking down the ex-queen and retrieving her crown and sash.
Noe was not immediately available for comment. She plans to hold a news conference later, according to Eleven Media, a Myanmar newspaper.
