This year’s Miss Universe winner had the shortest reign ever when a prime-time blunder forced officials to strip her of her crown and sash. The show hadn’t even gone to commercial.
iss Colombia, Ariadna Gutierrez, was in pageant heaven after host Steve Harvey announced her as the winner of Sunday night’s contest.
A beaming Gutierrez was smiling, waving and blowing kisses until it was announced that Miss Philippines, Pia Wurtzbach, was the true winner. Gutierrez plummeted to Earth as Wurtzbach, looked globally confused.
Then Miss Universe 2014, Paulina Vega, did the unthinkable. She lifted the crown from Gutierrez’s perfect coif and set it upon the rightful raven tresses of Wurtzbach.
