Cuba is NOT competing in Miss Universe

During the past days, several news outlets have been informing that Cuba would return to the Miss Universe pageant, represented by Jamillette Gaxiola, a 26-year old Cuban-Mexican former beauty queen.  Gaxiola represented Cuba in the Miss Grand International 2013 pageant in Thailand, as well as competing in several events throughout the years.

Noemi Melendez, director of Miss Cuba Organization, confirmed to Telemundo and other media sources that the information is indeed, not true.   Melendez also added that Gaxiola, a resident of Las Vegas – who now works as an Octagon girl with UFC – is retired from beauty pageants.

This goes to show that in these days, where Social Networking has taken such a toll over traditional news shows, some journalists are not checking facts before publishing reports such as this one.
