Exactly 24 hours after being named winner of Miss Canada Universe, Denise Garrido was informed that she was in fact not the winner of the prestigious title. The mistake reportedly occurred because of a typo which the organizers later admitted to.
According to reports the organizers attributed the mistake to “human error” and said the results showed that Garrido has landed the No.4 spot, while Risa Santos of Alberta won the crown.
Garrido later told reporters,”My heart sank. I was so sad” after she learned that she was not the winner.
