Miss Philippines, Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, was crowned Miss Universe Sunday night but not before the host, in an epic boner, declared first runner-up, Miss Colombia the winner.
You had to feel for poor Miss Comombia. She had the crown, the sash, the flowers and tears of joy when the host, Steve Harvey, delivered the bad news. Pia Alonzo, an actress and model was about as surprised as Miss Colombia. After wowing everyone in the swimsuit portion (who knew she had all that going on?) and actually delivering a cogent answer in the question portion of the contest, I thought she had it, and was shocked when she ‘lost’. But God is in his Heaven, the wrong was righted and all is good in the world.
