Earlier in 2015, Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez was wrongly announced as the winner of Miss Universe by the host Steve Harvey, only when minutes later her moment of pride had to be ripped apart. Steve was forced to apologize for his blunder and then Miss Philippines, Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach was crowned as the rightful winner. A somewhat similar ‘hard-luck’ for the Columbian beauty took place on the 5th of July 2016 during the Colombia’s Miss Bambuco International pageant where the queen’s crown was taken away by an envious runner-up.
Ms. Valentina Bonilla, the winner of the contest, was smiling at the cameras after receiving the crown when suddenly out of nowhere, Ms Lizeth Silvestre, the runner-up leaned over and slipped the crown right off her head. What she did next spread awkwardness all over as she wore it on her head. Although it was highly embarrassing for the winner to witness something like this, she still didn’t lose her pace and continued to express her happiness at the photographers, when the runner-up ‘put’ the crown back on her head, when done posing in front of the media. After shaming the reputation of the pageant she was escorted off the stage by the security. So, Beauty Pageants are not so boring, after all!
