Miss Colombia Paulina Vega Crowned Miss Universe 2015
Paulina is the beauty queen to rule them all!
Miss Colombia Paulina Vega wowed the judges with her beauty, talents and intelligence in the 2015 Miss Universe Pageant. As a result, she came out the big winner followed by runner-up Miss USA Nia Sanchez, along with Miss Ukraine Diana Harkusha.
Vega, a 22-year-old student of business administration from Barranquilla, Colombia, said she would wear the crown with "pride and excitement" as she heard the news that fans in Colombia had taken to the streets to celebrate.
Although she was far from home, Vega said she still felt the support from local Latinos.
"It felt like home. I felt like I was in Colombia with my people. I felt that support in every moment of the pageant," she said, wearing a sparkling silver gown with vertical stripes at a press conference after the competition.
But not everyone was on board with Paulina’s big win. Fans went wild on Twitter and spoke out against the judges’ decision. It was Miss Jamaica who stole the show — or so they say.
Apparently Miss Colombia was not really the crowd favorite.
