Miss Universe 2015 crowned Pia Wurtzbach from Philippines as their new winner yesterday. However, the Miss Universe 2015 crowning was not so joyful, like every other year because the host of the show Steve Harvey, a famous comedian, announced Ariadna Gutierrez as the winner instead of declaring her first runner-up. Ariadna was from Colombia which also crown last year with the courtesy of Paulina Vega. Hence Ariadna thought that she made a back to back, only the second time in history of Miss Universe. She was sashed, she was crowned, she was handed over the bouquet and she started taking her first walk as the new Miss Universe.
However, while she was sinking in this happiness, she received a shock of her life. Steve Harvey came back on stage to declare that it was his mistake that he declared the result in wrong order and Miss Philippines was the real winner. While he said he wanted to apologize to the crowd, everybody thought that he was joking, including Miss Colombia. But later Paulina came on stage and comforted Ariadna and then gracefully took over the crown from hear head and placed it over Pia’s head. All this drama was such a shame on the part of Miss Universe that led to extreme bashing of the host and the organisation. Although we do understand it was an honest yet unfortunate mistake, we can’t get away from the following facts:
Miss Universe 2015 Crowning Moments
- In mere 2 minutes, Ariadna received two extreme opposite feelings which is not good for health. First of happiness for winning back to back crown of Miss Universe for Colombia and second is shock for not being the real winner of the show. She cried a lot later on. However, she also accepted that whatever happens, happens for good and accepted the result gracefully.
- The similar two extreme opposite feelings were experienced by Pia as well, although the intensity might be lesser. Her reaction at winning the crown was not what we expected..!!! We are sure she also felt extremely bad for Colombia and hence, her reaction got squeezed in the moment. She had no clue whether to be happy, shocked or sad? Many people blame her for the loss of Colombia, which is not correct. After all, the host has made mistake, Miss Philippines had no fault in this.
- This is the first year of IMG as the new owner of Miss Universe and creating such blunders brings only bad name. You check up any national newspaper, this is the headlines. After the PERFECT show till end, Miss Universe 2015 Crowning moment erased all the good happened till then.
This is the statement Steve Harvey released it on his Social Media account:
I made a terrible mistake tonight in announcing the wrong winner and runner-up for the Miss Universe pageant. I know how much pride many countries, fans and most importantly, the contestants take in preparing for this night. I hope that you can forgive me.
All contestants were amazing but I want to specifically apologize to Miss Colombia and Miss Philippines again and wholeheartedly. You both represented well for your countries, families and yourselves.
We do hope that Ariadna has a great career in life ahead and appreciate her for keeping herself brave throughout these moments and showcasing the class.
