After Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach has been rightfully crowned as the winner after the botched announcement made by pageant host Steve Harvey, a new controversy on Wurtzbach’s win is brewing.
Hours after the controversial coronation night, Missosology posted a video of Miss Universe Germany Sarah-Lorraine Riek saying that she was upset by the results of the pageant, claiming that other candidates did not want Wurtzbach to win.
Riek said that Miss Universe 2015 first runner-up Ariadna Gutierrez was “robbed.”
“I couldn’t believe it. I was so upset because, for me, she was robbed…I was very happy for Colombia, actually. she really deserved it. But I’m very unhappy with the result and so were the other girls, I’m very sorry to say it,” Riek told Missosology’s Natalia Cruz.
