After Miss Colombia was mistakenly crowned Miss Universe 2015, fans are fearing that she could be headed for a mental breakdown. The pain of Steve Harvey’s major error is still fresh, but could things be getting even worse for Miss Colombia?
Ariadna Gutierrez, 21, otherwise known as Miss Colombia, went through one of the biggest heartbreaks of her life in front of millions of people when Steve Harvey, 58, wrongly named her Miss Universe on Dec. 20. Once she was stripped of her crown and it was given to Miss Philippines, Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, 26, Colombian’s feared that Ariadna’s sadness on stage could turn into a mental breakdown.
As fans worked hard to cheer Ariadna up with support on social media — including Sofia Vergara, who tweeted that Ariadna is “still the queen” — two of Colombia’s highest political figures expressed the concern that many fans were feeling.
“I do think that she’s very affected by all this,” Maria Isabel Nieto, Colombia’s consul general to New York, told The Post. “I just think that when I was in my 20s and was in her situation, I would take a little while to recover.”
Although Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos told the outlet that Ariadna is “still Miss Universe” in his eyes because “they put the crown on her head,” having it stripped away the way Ariadna did surely made the loss even more difficult to bear. And considering fans’ concern for Ariadna, her tearful expression as Pia received the crown likely made their worries even bigger.
But while fans might think Ariadna is on her way to a mental breakdown, she has already broken her silence about Steve’s shocking mistake and seems to be doing okay. “Everything happens for a reason, so I’m happy,” Ariadna said in a video. “Thank you for voting for me.”
Plus, Donald Trump declared his opinion that bother Ariadna and Pia should be crowned co-winners, so maybe Ariadna should think like Trump. Even some of her fellow contestants including Miss Germany have said that Ariadna deserved to be the winner! It’ll probably take a while for Ariadna to get over Steve’s flub, but with the support she’s receiving, it seems Ariadna will easily be able to avoid a mental breakdown!
