All was good at this Brazilian beauty contest until the evening took an ugly turn when the winner’s crown was ripped off of her head.
The pageant in Manus, northern Brazil, had just awarded 20-year-old Caroline Toledo with the title of “Miss Amazon 2015” when a runner-up decided to steal the glory, in what seemed to be a jealous fit of rage.
Like a scene right out a chick-flick, runner-up Sheislane Hayalla dramatically swooped in during the crowning ceremony and snatched the esteemed piece of jewelry right off her competitor’s head before throwing it away and storming off the stage.
The shock and awe is clearly visible on everyone else’s face.
While the world is regarding Hayalla’s actions as lack of etiquette and sportsman spirit, the runner-up is complicating matters even more with allegations of contest rigging.
“Money talks in Manaus and I wanted to show the Amazon people money doesn't talk here,” she expressed. “She (Toledo) didn't deserve the title.”
