Fioralba Dizdari has replaced Kristina Bakiu as the new Miss Universe Albania 2013! She will represent Albania in the upcoming Miss Universe 2013, scheduled for November 9th, 2013 in Moscow, Russia.
Is this confirmed?
Who is flanked by Miss Univers Kosovo 2012 and Miss Universe Kosovo 2013? It is surely not Kristina Bakiu.

What happened to Kristina Bakiu?
There has been no official announcement from the Miss Universe Albania. However, the most likely possible reason is Kristina Bakiu‘s underage for the pageant. Kristina was born on April 5, 1995 and technically, she is 18 years old. Nevertheless, it is Miss Universe Organization’s rule that a contestant must have turned 18 before February 1 in the year she competes.
Same thing happened to Urvashi Rautela, the original winner of Miss Universe India 2012, last year. She was dethroned shortly after being crowned for being underaged (Urvashi was born on February 25, 1994 – just three weeks later than the deadline).
Rule is rule, the Miss Universe Organization did not bend the rule for the case of Urvashi so Kristina could not be an exception.
That’s say, good luck to Fioralba Dizdari and hope that Kristina Bakiu will join next year.
