Call it fate. Call it a most controversial turn of winning moments. Call it whatever you like. The essence of Miss Universe is who rightfully won the DIC crown.
Ariadna Gutierrez of Colombia had her brief shining moment. But it wasn’t meant to last because in less than 5 minutes, the real winner was announced and the crown transferred ownership in a flash. Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach of the Philippines is Miss Universe 2015.
Host Steve Harvey owned up to his mistake and showed the card containing the Philippines as the true victor. I have to pinch him hard for taking away a most genuine image of our Queen getting the crown from Paulina Vega. But I can take the twists. If there is one spot I wouldn’t want to fill in now is that of real 1st Runner-Up Ariadna Gutierrez because she is the one who had to go through an embarrassing minute or two on worldwide TV as having to give up what was already planted on her head and step down accordingly.
If it’s any consolation, the Philippines was hastily announced right before the Live Telecast was cut short because of the awkward scenes happening onstage.
We now have a proud 3rd member of the sisterhood which had only Gloria Diaz and Margarita Moran as members for 42 years now. They have a new recruit and she is MISS UNIVERSE 2015 PIA ALONZO WURTZBACH! 😀
