Paulina Vega now becomes the 1st from Colombia to win Miss Universe in 56 years, and only the 2nd, after Miss Universe 1958 Luz Marina Zuluaga. She stands 5'9", is a student and model, and just celebrated her 22nd birthday 11 days ago.

It wasn't surprising that she won, 'coz she was a huge favorite by many and even topped most pageant fans' hot picks and predictions. This blog (as well as major beauty pageant sites like Global Beauties and Missosology) has predicted her to win Miss Universe 2014, and it indeed happened (though she wasn't particularly good during the Q&A).

Majority of the crowd at the pageant venue wanted Miss Jamaica Kaci Fennell to win the title, and so they booed the results the moment she was called as 4th Runner Up, or only in 5th Place.

Miss Jamaica was such a stunning lady, very classy and answered great (perhaps the best) in the Q&A portion. She should have placed higher than 4th Runner Up, or as the FIU Arena crowd wanted: she should have won.

On this video by ThePageantGuy, you can hear the crowd chanting 'Jamaica' and many candidates rushed to Miss Jamaica as if she's the winner:

It was like a repeat of last year's Miss Universe. Venezuela's Gabriela Isler also didn't have the most impressive answer at the Q and A, and yet she won the crown.
