DRAMA UNFOLDS As Philippines' Pia Wurtzbach Is Crowned Miss Universe 2015!

Las Vegas, Nevada - In a glamorous night where there is a drama of high and lows, the visibly shocked 26-year-old half-German, half-Filipino model, actress, tv personality and journalist Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach of the Philippines was crowned Miss Universe 2015 by outgoing Miss Universe 2014 Paulina Vega of Colombia held at the AXIS Theater of the Planet Hollywood Resorts and Casino. The Cagayan de Oro City (which literally means "river of gold") native bested 79 other gorgeous contestants to win the coveted the 64th Miss Universe title. This the third time the Philippines won the Miss Universe crown after they won it in 1969 and 1973.

Few minutes earlier into the somewhat awkward crowning moment in the history of the pageant, host Steve Harvey mistakenly announced Colombia's Ariadna Guttierez as the winner but in fact she was 1st runner-up. 2nd runner-up is USA's Olivia Jordan. The remaining Top 5 finalists were Australia's Monika Radulovic and France Flora Coquerel. This is also the first time Miss Universe is under its new owner WME/IMG Inc.  

Also earlier in the night there's a fitting tribute to Miss Slovenia Ana Haložan who has to withdrew from the competition after suffering an injuring upon her arrival in Las Vegas.

Another milestone took place in Miss Universe history this year. Two editions of Miss Universe took place this year. First, 63rd Miss Universe 2014 took place last January 25 with Paulina Vega of Colombia winning the crown and this 64th Miss Universe 2015 took place last night December with Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach of the Philippines winning the coveted DIC Crown.
