Ariadna Gutierrez Arevalo, Miss Colombia, had every right to throw the biggest tantrum of life after wrongly being crowned Miss Universe. But, she didn’t.
Following the Miss Universe pageant on Sunday night, Arevalo, who was actually first runner up, said in a video message that “everything happens for a reason.”
“I’m happy,” she explained. “Thank you all, thank you for voting for me.”
In case you missed it, the pageant’s host, Steve Harvey, announced Ariadna as Miss Universe, but it was Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, Miss Philippines who should have been crowned.
“It’s a very non-traditional crowning moment,” Miss Philippines said following the show. “It’s very 2015.”
