TeenVogue.com – Pia stopped by Good Morning America to chat about the mixup and when they asked if she’d consider going halvsies, she played the drama off like a pro.
“I think it would be a 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 contestants,” she told GMA.
Usually, pageant runner-ups fade into the background when a winner is crowned, but since literally everyone from Twitter to TV to your fam was talking about the Steve Harvey snafu, it’s doubtful Miss Colombia will do the same. Her fans have taken to social media to express their displeasure with the situation, but Pia totally gets it and isn’t offended.

The excitement of live TV was evident tonight on The Miss Universe stage with over 10 million live fan votes tabulated. Unfortunately, a live telecast means that human error can come into play. We witnessed that tonight when the wrong winner was initially announced. Our sincerest apologies to Miss Universe Colombia 2015, Ariadna Gutierrez-Arévalo, Miss Universe Philippines 2015, Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, their families and fans. We congratulate Miss Universe Philippines as Miss Universe 2015.
