Miss Philippines was crowned Miss Universe 2015 in the pageant’s finals night Sunday December 20 (Monday December 21 in Manila) at the AXIS Arena in Planet Hollywood Las Vegas, Nevada USA.

Pia Wurtzbach beats 79 equally stunning and beautiful ladies around the world to get the title of Miss Universe 2015. Pia won the 3rd crown for the Philippines following Gloria Diaz in 1969 and Margie Moran in 1973. Following Pia in the top 3 were Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez 1st runner-up and Miss USA Olivia Jordan 2nd runner-up.

The Drama in the announcement of winners

But before she gets the crown, there has been a dramatic turn of events. Miss Universe 2015 host Steve Harvey mistakenly called Miss Colombia as the new Miss Universe 2015.

After Miss Universe 2014 Paulina Vega already crown her successor, Harvey took the stage again and apologize for the gaffe. He showed the Miss Universe elimination card bearing the name of Philippines as the real winner of Miss Universe 2015.

A shocked and surprised Pia Wurtzbach cannot believe what has happened and was needed to be cheered by 2nd runner-up Miss USA and the other contestants to go in front of the stage to get her crown.

An awkward moment enveloped the arena as Miss Philippines approached the front stage to get her crown from Miss Colombia. After Paulina Vega transferred the crown to her, Wurtzbach approached Guttierez to somehow comfort her.

Indeed a controversial night which will be remembered for the rest of Miss Universe history.

Meanwhile, here’s the complete list of winners in the 2015 Miss Universe pageant.
