Colombia’s president Juan Manuel Santos on Monday said he was shocked when Miss Colombia won and then immediately lost the Miss Universe crown.
“Our queen was marvelous. She looked spectacular. It was such a disappointment when the host said he’d made a mistake,” he told Radio Nacional.
Santos said as far as he was concerned Ariadna Gutierrez remained the winner.
“I was watching Miss Universe with my family. We started a huge celebration when they said Colombia had won the Miss Universe title for the second straight year,”
“To me, our queen is and will remain Miss Universe. They put the crown on her head. The photos are there to prove it. To me, as a Colombian, she is still Miss Universe” he concluded.
