Nevada, USA – Pia Wurtzbach from the Philippines gets crowned Miss Universe 2015 out of 80 competitors on December 20 in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.

The win comes after a controversial announcement where first runner-up Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez was incorrectly announced Miss Universe 2015 winner by host Steve Harvey, who later apologized for the confusion.

Gutierrez is followed by second runner-up Olivia Jordan from the USA.

Wurtzbach was an online favorite, where she also received support from AlDub fans in the Philippines.
