The blogger turned television personality, who was one of the judges of the competition, is blasting Miss Colombia for her "diva" behavior during the pageant...and beyond.
"I don't know if the people at home could see this, but Miss Colombia was being straight-up diva b*tch rude to her translator," Perez, who was one of the judges of the competition, said during an episode of "The Perez Hilton Podcast." "She was giving the most awful side-eye, throwing major shade, because Miss Colombia was not happy with the pace or the way that the translator was translating."
And that was just the beginning of his rant against Ariadna Gutierrez. "I was like, 'She's being cu**y right now," he added. "It was a major turn-off." Then, he continued to slam her during an interview with Us Weekly when they asked him how he felt about the winner mix-up between Miss Colombia and Miss Philippines.
"She didn't win and she didn't deserve to win," the blogger turned television personality added. "We didn't vote for her and one of the reasons why I didn't was because she didn't answer the questions as well and also, to me, she gave off this arrogant vibe. Yes, you need to be confident and own it...But Colombia did it almost too much."
"Even now in defeat and the wake of everything happened, on her social media, Miss Colombia has not been handling it well," he continued. "She's putting these Instagram posts up about how she's the real winner, but she's not! We didn't vote for her! She didn't win!...What she is doing on Instagram is indicative of who she is as a person."
Perez also genuinely felt that Miss Philippines was the better choice, and said the other judges were "so confused" when Miss Colombia's name was first called as the winner of the pageant. "Miss Philippines gave a better answer. She deserves it," he said. "She is Miss Universe, whereas the Miss Colombia, I'm like, you're Sofia Vergara. You're not Miss Universe."
Ouch. Still, not everyone felt like Perez. Miss Germany came to Miss Colombia's defense after the show and threw major shade at Miss Philippines while she was at it. When she was asked how she felt about the results, Sarah-Lorraine Riek said, "I really couldn't believe it, I was so upset. For me (she was robbed) as the real winner...I was very happy for Miss Colombia because she really deserved it. I'm really not happy with the result and so are the other girls, I'm sorry to say it. None of us voted for Miss Philippines."
Whoever voted for who, the correct winner was announced after Steve Harvey's major flub...and that was Miss Philippines. Hopefully, this will all blow over at some point so she can enjoy her reign in peace.
