Asian Journal - - WORLD -

Bo­gota: Colom­bian me­dia and so­cial net­works lit up with re­ac­tions to the botched Miss Uni­verse fi­nale on Sun­day night, which saw the na­tional con­tes­tant crowned and de­throned in a mat­ter of min­utes. The pageant host, US co­me­dian Steve Har­vey, an­nounced that Miss Colom­bia Adri­ana Gu­tier­rez won the cov­eted crown but mo­ments later cor­rected his mis­take, giv­ing the ti­tle to Miss Philip­pines, Xin­hua re­ported. Colom­bians went from ec­static to dis­ap­pointed emo­tions in the blink of an eye, as Har­vey tried to set things right. “Adri­ana Gu­tier­rez was Miss Uni­verse for four and a half min­utes,” Colom­bia’s Cara­col news net­work head­lined a story about the bun­gle on the front page of its web­site.
