The President of the Miss Venezuela Organization, Osmel Sousa, expressed his opinion about the scandalous situation that took place on Sunday night during the Miss Universe pageant, where the event’s host, Steve Harvey,crowned the wrong finalist.
“I was in shock because I don’t think it’s justified that in such an important moment, like it was the end of the pageant, this mistake was made. If it had happened, I don’t know, during the announcement of the 10 or 15 finalists, then yeah, maybe a mistake like this could be justified,” Sousa told El Heraldo Colombia.
The Beauty Guru, who is considered to be the driving force behind the large number of Miss Venezuelas who have made it to the Miss World, Miss Universe, Miss International, and Miss Earth pageants, added that if he was in charge of the Miss Universe Organization, he wouldn’t have fixed the faux pas and let Miss Colombia, Ariadna Gutiérrez, happily walk away with the crown.
“She [Miss Colombia] should take advantage of the situation and rise to fame. Because I told Raymundo, ‘Raymundo don’t worry, this girl is going to be more important and more famous than Miss Universe,” he concluded.
Osmel Sousa also said that Pia Wurtzbach is undeserving and Gloria Diaz was actually 4th runner up not Miss Universe way back in 1969!
