Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez has finally opened up about being named Miss Universe as a shocking mistake, and her response is as classy as she is beautiful. She feels that this was her ‘destiny.’ Find out why, here!
Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez, 21, is a class act. After any beauty queen’s worst nightmare – having your crown taken away – happened to her, she has responded as gracefully as humanly possible on Dec. 22, saying “my destiny was this.” Here’s what else she said.
Ariadna looked understandably horrified on Dec. 20 when Steve Harvey demanded back the Miss Universe crown he had mistakenly given her. She stood quietly as it was handed over to Miss Phillippines Pia Wurtzbach, thanks to an error that created the most embarrassing moment of her life. After spending a couple of days simmering, Miss Colombia has finally given a full response to the evening’s events, and instead of anger or sadness, she expresses gratefulness and poise.
“After the storm comes the calm,” said Ariadna on Instagram on Dec. 22. “I want to thank each and everyone of you who have sent messages of support and strength. Every one of you has become an incredible human being in my book and I am the most fortunate and thankful for having the support not only from one country but from the whole entire world.”
Ariadna went on to explain that she feels that this mistake, no matter how shocking, was meant to happen. “Your destiny is written for you. And my destiny was this. I was able to bring happiness to my country after becoming Miss Universe for only a couple of minutes… Today because of that COLOMBIA and the LATIN COMMUNITY are being talked about in every corner of the world.” The fact that Ariadna is okay with having endured something so upsetting to bring attention to her country is truly touching.
Furthermore, she did the hardest thing ever and made peace with the woman who took the crown instead. “I also want to congratulate the Philippines for their new Miss Universe 🙏🏼. The happiness that you must be feeling must be incredible. Life continues and in the future we will find out why things happen the way they happen. Thank you all for your LOVE SUPPORT and KINDNESS. ❤️” Wow. This woman is truly a class act and we’re sure that we will see great things to come from Ariadna!
