Riza Santos - the real Miss Universe Canada 2013 winner!

Riza Santos has been announced as the real Miss Universe Canada 2013 winner and not Denise Garrido.

Last Saturday, Denise Garrido was the one crowned Miss Universe Canada 2013 winner while Riza Santos was the 1st Runner Up. But a day after, it turned out that Garrido was only the THIRD Runner Up, while Santos was the real winner.

According to Beauties of Canada (BOC), who organizes the Miss Universe® Canada pageant, there was a typo error in the calculation of the scores.

"During the validation of the computerized scoring results (which occurs the following day), a typo was discovered in the top 5 entries, which significantly impacted the final results of the competition. This is the first instance of this type of error in the 11 years that Beauties of Canada (BOC) has produced the Miss Universe Canada pageant," the statement says. "This is an unfortunate circumstance where a human error was made, and in such a situation, as difficult as it is, it is only right to correct the error."


Miss Universe Canada 2013 ­- Riza Santos
1st Runner-Up ­- Siera Bearchell
2nd Runner-Up -­ Diana Martin
3rd Runner-up ­- Denise Garrido
4th Runner-up ­- Michelle McKay

That just means, there will be two "Filipina" in the upcoming Miss Universe 2013 pageant this December: Miss Canada Riza Santos and Miss Philippines Ariella Arida.

Riza Santos was a former Pinoy Big Brother housemate and already represented Canada in Miss Earth 2006 and in Miss World 2011.
