Maria Venus Raj was briefly dethroned after The Binibining Pilipinas Charities, Inc. (BPCI) discovered inconsistencies in her birth records, which differed from her personal account of her birth. The inconsistencies centered on her being born out of wedlock in Doha, Qatar of a Filipino mother and an Indian father. The BPCI later retracted its decision and announced that "for humanitarian reasons", Maria Venus Raj would be allowed to reclaim her title if she was able to obtain a valid Philippine passport. Raj subsequently obtained a Philippine passport and was reinstated as the Philippines' Miss Universe 2010 candidate.
