Miss Universe Australia is feeling the heat at the beauty pageant after being told that her evening gown and bikini are offensive and revealing.

The 21-year-old contestant Scherri-Lee Biggs was told that her satin evening gown was offensively “see-through” and her bikini way too sexy, the Daily Telegraph reported.

Along with being instructed to cover up, Biggs has also been ordered to make her bikini bottoms larger to ensure it holds everything in place while catwalking on the ramp.

Ranked third in the US betting market at 14/1, Biggs is not the only contestant who is facing the music. The judges have already warned three other contestants over risque photographs.

Scherri-Lee Biggs is a South African born model, beauty queen and pageant titleholder from Watermans Bay, Perth, Australia. Biggs, who is competing against 88 other women for the Miss Universe crown in Sao Paulo, Brazil is considered to be one of the favourites.
