Ariadna Gutierrez says Miss Universe ruined her dream

12:36:00 PM

"In four minutes they destroy your dreams, they throw it in a bag, and they throw it in the trash," Ariadna Gutierrez said Tuesday on Univision.

On December 20, 2015 the colombian beauty queen was all smiled after the host Steve Harvey announced that she won the crown but minutes after she was left devastated when Harvey clarified that he made a mistake of announcing the winner.

The crown was removed from her head on national television and given to its rightful owner, Miss Philippines Pia Wurtzbach — leaving Gutierrez furious with the way the situation was handled.

"They could have done it another way," she continued in a translation provided by ABC's "Good Morning America." "I feel like it doesn't matter to them the feelings of a girl who has worked her whole life for a dream."

The Colombian stunner remained composed as Harvey announced the correct winner and apologized for misreading the winner card, but the distraught contestant broke down immediately after the show.

"I went up to my parents' room and obviously, I was very sad," she said. "I was in bad shape. I was crying. I cried a ton that night."

Gutierrez, among many others, has suggested she and Wurtzbach share the crown following the "humiliating" incident — but the pageant's eventual winner has no plans of doing so.

"I think it would be a little difficult for two girls to share a crown," Wurtzbach said on "Good Morning America" on Tuesday.

Harvey, meanwhile, has continually expressed his regret since that fateful night, consistently claiming it was an innocent mistake and not some twisted publicity stunt.
