Miss Colombia accidentally named Miss Universe

Colombia Reports


Colombia only barely failed to repeat last year’s win at Miss Universe on Sunday with representative Ariadna Gutierrez taking home second prize.

The South American country’s representative was declared Miss Universe 2015 for a minute, but only due to a major error by host Steve Harvey, who later stopped the Colombian party and clarified Miss Philippines had won.

Gutierrez and the Philippines’ Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach had been speculated favorites days ahead of the event.

A consecutive win would have been unprecedented in Colombia’s decades-long participation in the global beauty pageant.

Thus far, Colombia won the pageant only in 1958 and 2014 in spite of being among the favorites multiple years.

The Philippines also won the event twice prior to this one, in 1969 and in 1973.

Gutierrez, born on Colombia’s Caribbean coast, won the national title little over a year ago in coastal city Cartagena where the national beauty pageant has become part of the city’s celebrations commemorating its independence from Spain.
