Is Miss Germany the most cruel candidate among the Miss Universe 2015 finalists? After her comment on Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach, there’s a new issue surrounding the German beauty.
According to GMA News Online, Wurtzbach’s mentor Jonas Gaffud revealed that Miss Germany Sarah-Lorraine Riek did “something bad” to them. Apparently, Riek lied to the Philippine team. The Mercator Artist & Model Management President shared the incident on his Facebook profile.
“So surprised with Miss Germany. She did something bad to our group. Pia asked us to go to her suite as Miss Universe. While waiting for the go signal from security, she [Riek] told us: “are you looking for Miss Philippines? She’s no longer here she’s on her way to New York!”
When Gaffud and the rest of the team told her that Wurtzback just sent them a message, the German beauty told them her proof.
“She answered ‘how could she text you? She’s already in the plane. I saw her!,'” Gaffud added. Despite Miss Germany’s claim, the Philippine team decided to proceed to Wurtzbach’s room. They celebrated with the third Filipina to win the Miss Universe title.
The site mentioned that Gaffud’s post came after Miss Germany made a controversial remark on Wurtzbach’s victory. Speaking to Natalia Cruz of blog Missology, Riek shared her dismay over the pageant’s results.
Riek claims that none of the 77 other candidates voted for Miss Philippines. Moreover, she mentioned that Miss Colombia “was robbed” of the title. For her, it was Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez who deserved the crown.
According to Independent UK, Riek’s interview was watched by six million viewers in the US. Later, she was criticised and bashed for what she said.
A statement on behalf of Miss Germany was then posted on Facebook. However, the following post has been deleted.
“She [Ms Reik] never intended to offend Miss Philippines in any way… She is really sorry if the video suggests anything else than that. It’s an emotional roller coaster… She and all the other girls felt so sorry for Colombia at that moment… That’s not the final result moment what you wish for anyone. And also for Pia.
Sarah-Lorraine is very happy a half German girl brings the crown of course a bit to Germany as well! Congratulations to our friend of Philippines for winning the crown after all. She wishes Pia all the best for this year as Miss Universe 2015.”
