Gossip blogger Perez Hilton had a front row seat when Steve Harvey announced the wrong winner at the Miss Universe pageant this weekend. However, the pageant judge couldn’t have been more in favor of Miss Philippines winning.
Hilton denied interviews after the event so he could speak freely on the subject during his website’s podcast, The PHP, and boy, was it worth the wait. According to him, first runner-up Ariadna Gutierrez of Colombia definitely should never have had that crown on her head. Although Perez admits “Miss Colombia was the most beautiful contestant,” her attitude was anything but lovely.
“I don’t know if the people at home could see this. But Miss Colombia was being straight-out diva-bitch rude to her translator…She was giving the most awful side-eye, throwing major shade because Colombia was not happy with the pace or the way the translator was translating…I was dying. She’s being cunty right now,” he said. “It was a major turnoff.”
He continued, “It wasn’t just that she (Colombia) didn’t give the best answer. And it wasn’t just that she came across not just me, but several of the other judges (as) bitchy and arrogant. It was that Miss Philippines gave a better answer.”
Even though Miss Germany completely dissed the real winner after the results were revealed, Miss Philippines Pia Wurtzbach, Perez Hilton feels she totally deserved the title of Miss Universe. And he’s not the only one.
“I went with my gut and voted for Miss Philippines. And actually, I found out afterwards it was unanimous. Every single judge on that panel, all four of us, voted for Miss Philippines to be number 1,” he revealed.
With all the videos surfacing of other contestants totally ignoring Miss Philippines after her win, it’s nice to see someone stand up for her.
Perez Hilton also talks about thinking the pageant was fixed.
