I don’t watch beauty pageants, but the PowerLine guys do:
Tonight’s Miss Universe pageant concluded with a fiasco, as the announcer apparently misunderstood the final rankings and announced Miss Colombia, Ariadna Gutierrez Arévalo, as the winner. Miss Colombia was crowned, presented with flowers and paraded around the stage for a couple of minutes when, to the astonishment of all, the announcer returned and said that he had made a mistake: the real winner was Miss Philippines, Pia Wurtzbach. They mercifully pulled the plug on the broadcast a few moments later. I don’t think the television audience saw the crown lifted from Miss Colombia’s head.
Here's video of Steve Harvey imitating an NFL ref & totally blowing the call for the Miss Universe Pageant. https://t.co/8fyZ3Eq3Jw

Situation Normal: All Fouled Up,
Beauty contests are a very big deal in LatAm. El Espectador has an entire section on it, and video,
More, way much more, at Twitchy.
