Miss Philippines Reacts to 'Confusing' Miss Universe Mistake

Miss Philippines Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach walks the red carpet at a press conference following the 2015 Miss Universe pageant on Sunday (December 20) at The Axis at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, Nev.

The 26-year-old beauty opened up to Entertainment Tonight about being crowned Miss Universe following a major mishap in which she was originally announced to be the runner-up.

“I was confused. I wasn’t sure what was going on,” Pia said. “I didn’t expect that to happen at all.”

“I had to ask my [manager] many times like, ‘Did I really win? Am I really Miss Universe? Are you going to take the crown from me now?’ And they [said], ‘No, no, you’re really the winner,’” Pia added.

Pia says she still has not spoken to Miss Colombia Adriadna Gutierrez after the mistake.

“She was crying and then there was a crowd around her, the girls who were comforting her,” Pia said. “I was actually very close to her already, but I decided that maybe it was bad timing to do it now — to apologize to her for what happened. So maybe I’ll do that in the future.”
