Ariadna Gutierrez is a 24-year-old actress and model from Colombia, who rose to fame during her beauty pageant career due to unfortunate circumstances.
Gutierrez was the reigning Miss Colombia 2014 when she was introduced to the world stage at Miss Universe 2015. It was then that Gutierrez was mistakenly announced as the winner of the Miss Universe pageant by Steve Harvey, a moment that instantly went viral and one that he will never live down.
“I went up to my parents’ room and, obviously, I was very sad, I was in bad shape, I was crying. I cried a ton that night,” Gutierrez told Univision after the public humiliation.
“In four minutes, they destroy your dreams. They throw it in a bag, they throw it in the trash. They could have done it another way. I feel like it doesn’t matter to them the feelings of a girl who has worked her whole life for a dream.”
Gutierrez and Harvey eventually conducted an interview together where the comedian and host gave a heartfelt apology and all seemed to be forgiven.
She eventually joked, “You need to learn how to read cards, because it was on the card. You wanted me to win, you know.”
Since then, you may have seen Gutierrez on the silver screen in the film xXx: Return of Xander Cage, alongside Vin Diesel.
Gutierrez is currently being reintroduced to the American public as a cast member of the inaugural season of Celebrity Big Brother on CBS.
