Always the bridesmaid but never the bride, poor Syrian actress, Sulaf Fawakherji , has once again been pipped to the post. This time the much-loved star has fallen short at the last hurdle in an 'Arab Celebrity Beauty Queen' contest, sponsored by MBC.net.
According to the site, the drama queen  only got 2 million votes, ranking her third, with favorites Buthayna al Raesi (from Oman) and Marwa Ahmad (from Saudi) going through to the finals.
But although Sulaf missed out on the finals, she did manage to pull in more votes than some of the region's other favorite stars. Sexy Lebanese celebs, Haifa Wehbe and Cyrine Abdel Nour, didn't even make it to the last three!
