Miss Universe Goof Stirred Rage Amongst Latina Contestants

The most sought after pageant of the year, “Miss Universe 2015” ended on a very unexpected note when the show’s host Steve Harvey announced the wrong winner. Miss Columbia’s crown was taken away and then given to Miss Philippines which started a war of words amongst other contestants of the pageant. Many Latina contestants displayed their rage to Miss Philippines who was herself not able to realize what happened to her.

As per the sources Miss Puerto Rico, Miss Costa Rica, Miss Mexico, including various Latina contestants, came in a group to give their heartiest sympathies to Miss Columbia.

According to the sources, they blamed the winner Miss Philippines for all mishap rather than blaming the show’s host Steve Harvey who actually made a mistake. Steve Harvey has been gracious, according to them, and conducted an outstanding show.

In the previous year too, the ultimate title of Miss Universe was given to Miss Philippines and this year’s winner has therefore become a matter of scrutiny for many. Most of them actually didn’t even congratulate her on her victory and started criticizing her backstage.

Meanwhile, reacting to this news, Donald Trump, who sold off his stake in the pageant this year, believes that both Miss Philippines and Miss Columbia must be named as co-winners, rather than calling any one of them as the winner.

As told by Shanna Moakler, a former Miss USA and pageant honcho, “competition between Colombia and the Philippines was extremely fierce.”
