The finals of the Miss Universe 2015 competition witnessed bizarre sights as the wrong candidate’s name was announced. Hardly had Miss Columbia Ariadna Gutierrez worn the crown for about 90 seconds, when the error was pointed out, and the crown was handed over to Miss Phillipines Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach.
It was a sight both hilarious as well as sad, as host Steve Harvey interrupted the celebrations by saying, “I have to apologise. The first runner up is Colombia. Miss Universe 2015 is Philippines”. Miss Columbia Ariadna Gutierrez had to silently hand over her crown to Miss Phillipines Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach.
The Miss Universe franchise is not new to controversy, as Donald Trump had bought off all the stocks of the company, only to sell them three days later. The Miss Universe competition is organized by the Miss Universe Organisation based out of New York.
