PIA ALONZO WURTZBACH (MISS UNIVERSE) Instagram!
Filipina beauty queen Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach made history when she won as Miss Universe - the first in 42 years.
The Philippines' last win in the Miss Universe Contest was 42 years ago, when Margie Moran won the crown in Athens, Greece in 1973, while movie actress Gloria Diaz earlier won the crown in 1969, in Florida, USA.
Wurtzbach is the only third Filipina to win the prestigious crown.
The Philippines' historic win in 42 years, almost, if not completely, got overshadowed by a major TV blunder that will go down in the history books as one one the worst faux pas, ever committed on live global television.
One of the show's presenters, US comedian Steve Harvey, mistakenly announced the winner as Miss Colombia, giving her some minutes to celebrate the moment, wave and blow kisses to the crowd, cry in joy, and even actually be crowned, only to be stunned shortly later, that she is not the real winner.
Harvey apologized as he said he committed a mistake, and that the real winner as Miss Universe is actually Miss Philippines!
The Miss Universe crown has to be taken off back from Miss Colombia.
