During the show’s coronation night, some of the viewers noticeably caught sight of how the candidates almost slip when they sashay onstage.

Also, they were irritated to the loud and shrilly female emcee Serah Teshna who failed to pronounce Myanmar properly. Sadly, Miss Guatemala thought she was the one who won a special award, but had to step aside and give way to the real winner and had to settle for humiliation as a prize.



Did Miss Vietnam copy Miss Universe Catriona Gray’s Lava walk and gown?



It was in the preliminaries that some of the candidates fell victim on the marker that looked like a paper plate on the stage. Gallman was not exempted from almost falling due to the prone-to-accident marker.
