Denise Garrido Mistakenly Crowned Miss Universe Canada 2013

It was a huge day for Denise Garrido, who was selected as the winner of the 2013 Miss Universe Canada pageant on Saturday (May 25), but when Sunday rolled around her world was crushed.

Apparently the judges at the organization messed up the whole scoring process, choosing Garrido over the actual winner Riza Sanos.

During an interview shortly after the error was corrected, Denise explained, My heart sank. I was so sad, also noting that it was her dream to compete in the Miss Universe pageant.

A rep from Miss Universe Canada told press, “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.
