1 Miss Germany Sarah-Lorraine Riek is unhappy Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach was crowned as Miss Universe 2015. “I really couldn’t believe it. I was so upset because for me Miss France was the real winner. And I was very happy for Colombia, actually. She really deserves it. But I’m really not happy with the result and so do the other girls. I’m sorry to say that.”
She also stated the reason why she, along with her fellow Miss Universe contestants, rushed to the side of the disgraced Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez instead of congratulating Pia. “Because no one of us voted for the Philippines. I’m sorry to say that,” she said. Miss Germany adds, “I wish Pia the best of luck with her year but I’m really not happy with the result.”
2 Rumors have been circulating about a budding romance between Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach and President Benigno Aquino III in the months leading to the 2015 Miss Universe Pageant. Now, presidential sister Kris Aquino says that Pia “didn’t like Noy.” The host explained further, saying, “I think she entertained him. But the thing is, you can tell from her character, e. Single-minded. So, kinailangan, ito ang focus ko muna. Grabe naman, di ba, nangalahati ang katawan, at lahat ng training na pinagdaanan! Pero, di ba, pinadalhan ng flowers bago umalis? Gusto ko nga alamin kung nag-text, e!” (PEP.ph)
