A wrong beauty contestant was crowned Miss Canada Universe at the final stage of the beauty pageant on May 25th.
According to the report, pageant organizers originally gave the award to Denise Garrido of Ontario. Garrido wore the crown for about 24 hours until the judges realized that they crowned the wrong contestants.
The organizers of the event later released a statement, saying: “This is an unfortunate circumstance where a human error was made, and in such a situation, as difficult as it is, it is only right to correct the error.”
Garrido, who won Miss Earth Canada in 2008 and Miss World Canada in 2010, said that she was heartbroken when she heard that she didn’t actually win the Miss Canada Universe contest.
A spokesman for Garrido said “She totally understands. You can do the right thing and correct it, or do the wrong thing and try to cover it up.”
