Beauty pageants are always prestigious events where grace and beauty are featured in the center stage. Sometimes though jealousy and pride can come in and rear its ugly head. That is exactly the case when a runner up was caught on camera trying to literally steal the crown from the winner.
In Colombia, a very shocking event was recorded on camera when the woman who placed as runner up in the National Bambuco Queen beauty pageant expressed just how much she thinks she deserves to win. In the video, which became a viral sensation, runner up Yeimy Lizeth Gamez was seen as standing next to the winner, Valentina Neira as they were posing for photographs. Without any warning, Gamez surprisingly grabbed the crown from Neira.
After getting the crown, Gamez can be seen in the video placing it on her head and then afterward tossing it back to Neira. Gamez then stormed off the stage expressing her disappointment in just placing second.
Neira on the other hand appeared shocked by what Gamez did but she certainly kept cool and calm all throughout the incident. After the latter threw the tiara back at her, the winner simply blew a kiss at the runner up and she smiled at the crowd.
The audience showed their disgust at Gamez by booing her off stage. It will be interesting to see just exactly how Gamez can bounce back in the beauty pageant scene after this very embarrassing incident.
