A Miss Universe 2015 parody video is now making rounds on social media, where gay comedians re-enacted the mistake of host Steve Harvey in announcing the wrong winner. But instead of Miss Colombia being the first-runner up, Miss Philippines was initially announced the winner, but later revealed that Miss Thailand as the real winner. Watch the video below.
First spotted on Missosology Facebook page, the spoof video shows the host announcing that Miss Philippines won the Miss Universe 2015. As you can see, ‘Miss Philippines’ is wearing a blue gown that seems to be like what the real Miss Philippines Pia Wurtzbach won at the night of the pageant. You can also hear ‘Pia’ screaming “Mabuhay” as the audio crowd cheered.
When the supposed Miss Universe 2014 winner passed her crown to ‘Miss Philippines,’ the ‘host’ apologized and announced that, “Miss Universe 2015 is Miss Thailand.” And just like what happened during that awkward moment for Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez, the crown was taken away from ‘Miss Philippines’ and was transferred to ‘Miss Thailand.’
But unlike the actual scene where Miss Philippines and Miss Colombia continue to maintain their composure despite the confusion, the ‘Miss Philippines’ on the parody video got mad and repeatedly slapped the ‘host’ while ‘Miss Thailand’ waves to the crowd and enjoying her victory. Before the video ends, ‘Miss Philippines’ screamed after she was slapped by ‘Miss Thailand’.
For the serious news, Miss Australia Monika Radulovic was interviewed on local morning show ‘Sunrise’ where she was asked about her comment on what happened during the controversial night, According to her, she was happy to be part of the Top 5 but she said she and all the other Miss Universe 2015 contestants couldn’t believe what happened.
“We could see the teleprompter. It said ‘Philippines please take your walk as Miss Universe after Miss Colombia was crowned. So we were looking at each other thinking, ‘what are we waiting’” Miss Australia told the TV hosts, noting that after Steve Harvey corrected himself, they all went to console Miss Colombia. She also wishes the best for Miss Philippines.
