Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez reigned as the 2015 Miss Universe winner for approximately two minutes. Yep, the beauty queen's title was taken away from her after host Steve Harvey mistakenly crowned Ariadna as the winner instead of the Philippines’ Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach. The Miss Universe organization has since released an official apology to both Miss Colombia and Miss Philippines-Universe.
In a tearful backstage interview, Ariadna wiped away her tears and said, “Everything happens for a reason, so I’m happy. I’m happy for all [of] what I did.”
A swarm of her fellow Miss Universe contestants then screamed “We love you, Colombia!”
Tight hugs, Ariadna! Watch her full statement below:
