miss Universe raised all kinds of emotions in its 2021 edition. The contest, in its 70th version, was held on Sunday, December 12. The representative of Colombia was Valeria ayos, who was born in Cartagena in 1994.
She was among the five finalists.
According to an article in this newspaper, Ayos “studied international relations at the Jorge Tadeo Lozano University and also has studies in Strategic Management, International Marketing and Business English from the University of La Verne, in California, United States”.
And although the gaze was focused on the typical costumes of the queens and their particular responses – the Miss Universe even meowed since they asked her to imitate the sound of some animal, This request, according to the fans of the pageant, bordering on the absurd -, the presenter Steve Harvey It also had a moment of ‘lapses’ that recalled the embarrassing episode of 2015 that had Ariadna Gutiérrez as the winner for only two minutes as a result of a compromising confusion.
In the recent contest the crossing of names was not so expensive to Harvey, although he did revive one or the other ‘ghost of the past‘.
‘Congratulations, Portugal; I mean, Paraguay ‘
Steve Harvey and Miss Universe are practically synonymous: the presenter has officiated more than six editions of the contest. He had to be absent in 2020, however, he returned for this year. And he did not do it alone: his daughter Lori harvey was among the team in charge of choosing the greatest exponent of world beauty.
Well, it did not start as expected since, half jokingly half seriously, Harvey recalled the incident with Ariadna Gutiérrez, in 2015, and asked not to be ‘confused’.
More than once he brought up the subject, although today it is just a bitter memory for fans of the contest.
In the final phase Harvey ‘skated’ at the time of congratulating the Miss Universe finalists. In this 2021 he won Harnaaz Kaur Sandhu, 21-year-old representative of India, who was selected as ‘The most beautiful woman in the world’.
The expectation for his crown was narrowly overshadowed by Harvey’s mistake. The two finalists were the representative of India and Nadia ferreira, Miss Paraguay.
Just when he was going to give the verdict he wanted to congratulate them, but he said to Nadia “Congratulations, Portugal”.
The two women laughed in some bewilderment, as did some of the attendees. Harvey corrected his mistake almost immediately. “Congratulations Paraguay; I said Portugal, I’m sorry”.
And although the cameras at the time were focused on the coronation of India, many remembered the 2015 episode, when Harvey announced Ariadna Gutiérrez as the miss Universe from that time. She managed to receive the crown of her predecessor — Paulina Vega, also Colombian — and greeted the public when, almost Two minutes later After reading the verdict, Harvey returned to the stage and said that he had ‘misread’: the real Miss Universe was Pia Wurtzbach, representatives of the Philippines.
Paulina’s image removing the crown a bewildered Ariadna went around the world at that time and each pageant remembers Harvey’s stumble.
