    But it looks like a fake mistake.
    Maybe the 3 are acting out a pre-arranged script.
    The financial backers of the contest wanted something sensational to get into the news?

    Otherwise it is just another contest that will never be known and never make it onto the prime time news, right?

    Common sense tells you that such contests e.g. Miss Universe, Miss World, etc have been around long enough for people to know how to have the SOP to prevent this highly foreseeable boo-boo.

    An interview after the stuff-up:

    Proud to see the girls kept their cool in such tensed situation.

    Looks like youtube has made them famous worldwide because of it.

    Its showbiz sensationalization!!! I believe more people will take notice of blunders than good and correct reporting of pageant results. Isn't it? Rest my case.

    Agreed.. if they end up fighting in front of the camera.. then I'll believe it's a genuine blunder..
