Miss Colombia Universe believes the Miss Universe crown should be shared with her because of the blunder at the December pageant when host Steve Harvey wrongly announced her as the winner instead of Miss Philippines.

Miss Colombia, in an exclusive interview on Univision, said she was saddened, and humiliated.

“I was in bad shape, I cried a ton that night,” she said.

“In four minutes, they destroyed your dreams. They threw it in the bag and they threw it in the trash.”

But while Miss Colombia believes the Miss Universe crown should be shared because of the announcement blunder, Miss Universe Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach does not seem to agree.

“I think it would be a little bit difficult for two girls to share a crown but I have high hopes that this will give great opportunities for me and Miss Colombia and the rest of the girls,” Wurtzbach said on ABC's Good Morning America.

The Miss Universe also said she understood the humiliation and embarrassment that Miss Colombia would have suffered.
