Miss Universe wrongfully crowned


On December 20th, 2015 Miss Universe was crowned. However, this year's Miss Universe host, Steve Harvey, accidentally announced the wrong winner of Miss Universe 2015. It had come down to Miss Columbia and Miss Philippines. When it came time to announce the winner, Harvey misread the card, announcing the runner-up, Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez. Gutierrez took the crown and bouquet, waving a Colombian flag to the cheering crowd and even blowing kisses. A few moments later, Harvey interrupted the crowds cheers apologizing for have announcing the wrong winner. Harvey then announced that the actual winner of Miss Universe 2015 was Miss Philippines, Pia Wurtzbach. Completely stunned, Wurtzbach walked back down onto the stage to claim her crown. Gutierrez dropped her smile, and you could see the disappointment in her eyes. The crown was removed from Gutierrez and placed upon Wurtzbach, along with the sash and bouquet. There is no feud between between the two beautiful ladies. However, it is rumored that Gutierrez will be suing Harvey for $5 million, although it is not officially confirmed. Donald Trump, previous owner of Miss Universe Pageant, stated that he believed both women should have been co-crowned. What are your opinions? Do you think Mr. Harvey should be sued, or was it just an innocent mistake? Should the ladies have been co-crowned, or was it rightfully Miss Philippines' victory? Let us know what you think!
