Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach finally spoke about her controversial win in the beauty pageant held in Las Vegas, USA that aired live on Philippine TV this Monday morning, December 21.
According to an ABS-CBN News report, Pia, although happy for her victory, was sad for Miss Colombia Adriadna Gutierrez, who was mistakenly announced the Miss Universe 2015 by pageant host Steve Harvey.
In a press conference after the coronation night, Pia said that she will give Miss Colombia, “A bit of time and see how she is doing.”
Moreover, she said, “I’m sorry for what happened. Even I did not expect it. Like her, I also want to win,” adding that she did not take the crown from Miss Colombia whom she expressed her well wishes to.
Meanwhile, the Miss Universe organization also apologized for what happened on their official Facebook page.
“The excitement of live TV was evident tonight on The Miss Universe stage with over 10 million live fan votes tabulated. Unfortunately, a live telecast means that human error can come into play. We witnessed that tonight when the wrong winner was initially announced. Our sincerest apologies to Miss Universe Columbia, Miss Universe Philippines, their families and fans. We congratulate Miss Universe Philippines as Miss Universe 2015,” the statement says.
