Original Miss Universe Canada 2013 winner Denise Garrido is demoted to 4th place due to tabulation error


Denise Garrido - the morning after she was crowned Miss Universe Canada 2013

     Just barely two days after she was crowned Miss Universe Canada 2013, Denise Garrido has been demoted to 3rd runner-up position due to a tabulation error.  Riza Santos,  26, who was 1st runner-up, has now been declared as the true winner. Beauties of Canada, the organizer of the pageant, has released the following statement:

MISS UNIVERSE CANADA 2013 FINAL RESULTS

The 2013 Miss Universe Canada pageant took place on Saturday, May 25 at the St. Lawrence Centre for the Arts in Toronto.  During the validation of the computerized scoring results (which occurs the following day), a typo was discovered in the top 5 entries, which significantly impacted the final results of the competition.  This is the first instance of this type of error in the 11 years that Beauties of Canada (BOC) has produced the Miss Universe Canada pageant.
This is an unfortunate circumstance where a human error was made, and in such a situation, as difficult as it is, it is only right to correct the error.  Therefore, the official results of Miss Universe Canada 2013 are as follows:
Miss Universe Canada 2013 ­ Riza Santos (Calgary, AB)
1st runner-up ­ Siera Bearchell (Moose Jaw, SK)
2nd runner-up ­ Diana Martin (Mississauga, ON)
3rd runner-up ­ Denise Garrido (Bradford, ON)
4th runner-up ­ Michelle McKay (Sarnia, ON)
We would like to offer our sincere apology to Denise Garrido for this human error discovered while validating the results. Miss Garrido’s example and grace represents all we look for at Miss Universe Canada. We have no doubt she will continue to succeed in her endeavours and we wish her well. We truly hope she remains a strong part of the Miss Universe Canada Organization.
Beauties of Canada congratulates Riza Santos as the winner of Miss Universe Canada 2013 competition, and looks forward to working with her as she prepares to represent our country at Miss Universe 2013. BOC would also like to congratulate all the runners-up on their proper placements at the pageant, as well as the other 52 extraordinary young women who competed for the title in Toronto.

Riza Santos: from 1st runner-up to Miss Universe Canada 2013 

     It is indeed unfortunate that a tabulation error has shattered the dream of Denise Garrido of competing in Miss Universe 2013 pageant. When she won two days ago, she automatically made history by being the first woman in Canadian pageantry to have won three grand national titles (Miss Earth Canada 2008, Miss World Canada 2010, and Miss Universe Canada 2013). Now this record has been claimed by Riza Santos. Santos, like Garrido, boasts of two grand national titles under her belt (Miss Earth Canada 2006, Miss World Canada 2011). And now the Miss Universe Canada 2013 title has just been added to her accolades.
