1. And the runner up steals the crown….
Someone made a major boo-boo at the Miss Universe Cananda pageant over the weekend. Twenty-six-year-old Denise Garrido was crowned the winner, only to be told the next day that there had been a scoring error and she had only in fact come fourth.
In what was apparently a case of ‘human error’, someone who may need an optical check-up entered the judges’ handwritten scores incorrectly into the pageant score calculation computer (probably just a calculator, but whatevs), which resulted in the top 5 places being jumbled.
The actual winner (who was named the first runner-up on the day) was Riza Santos, also 26. She was given the crown in a private ceremony the next day – in what was probably every first-runner up’s dream come true. She will now represent Canada in the Miss Universe pageant later this year.
Garrido, who is too old to compete again next year (no Miss Universe can be older than 26, OBVIOUSLY) said that when she was told the crown was not hers to keep: “My heart sank. I was so sad.”
