Pia Wurtzbach is the real Miss Universe 2015 winner, not Colombia

Miss Philippines Pia Wurtzbach has just been crowned Miss Universe 2015 winner in Las Vegas, becoming the 3rd woman from the Philippines to win the crown.

26-year-old model-actress Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach won over 79 other Miss Universe 2015 candidates. 1st Runner Up was Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez while the 2nd Runner Up was Miss USA Olivia Jordan.

In the Top 5 were Misses Australia and France, while Misses Curacao, Dominican Republic, Japan, Thailand and Venezuela were in the Top 10.

Those who stopped in the Top 15 were Misses Belgium, Brazil, Indonesia, Mexico and South Africa.

I actually predicted only 9 of the Top 15, but I can boast that I got the Top 3 so right, with Philippines as my predicted winner and Colombia and USA as her runners-up. (READ: Miss Universe 2015 winner predictions: Miss Philippines FTW!

It took more than 4 decades (42 years) before the Miss Universe crown went back to the Philippines. Past Pinay winners were Gloria Diaz in 1969 and Margie Moran in 1973.

It also took three tries for Pia in the national pageant, Binibining Pilipinas, before finally winning the Miss Universe Philippines 2015 crown and now she's Miss Universe 2015.
