It’s been two weeks since we all stared at the television and shouted “NO WAY” as Steve Harvey admitted he had “made a mistake” in announcing the winner of the Miss Universe pageant. The mess up resulted in removing the crown from the head of Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez and placing it on the rightful winner, Miss Philippines Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach…all on live television.
Even though judge Perez Hilton said Miss Colombia was a huge snob during the pageant and Miss Germany claimed none of the contestants wanted Miss Philippines to win, you have to feel bad for both of them.
Now, Miss Colombia is speaking out about the ridiculously embarrassing moment.
In an interview with the Latin Timesshe revealed, “It was very humiliating for me, but also for the whole country and for all the people not only from Colombia but the other Latinos that were in the auditorium.”


Gutierrez literally couldn’t believe the moment was unfolding. She thought “this is going to be a joke, because in the rehearsals he used to play around with questions and I thought he was going to continue with that same tone to make people laugh.”
Of course, there is some speculation that Harvey’s mistake was all a ploy to get ratings and buzz about the pageant, especially because it was the first year in forever that Donald Trump wasn’t involved. Gutierrez admits, “If that was the goal, they succeeded.”
Donald Trump was asked about the fiasco in a phone call to NBC’s Today show and suggested that Wurtzbach and Gutierrez be named co-winners.
“For the first time I agree with him,” Gutierrez said.
Maybe she doesn’t have the crown, but Gutierrez is definitely going to be just fine. She already has one offer – to do porn. Hopefully she’ll hold out for something more lucrative – like a guest starring role on Modern Family as Sofia Vergara’s younger sister.
