Wow! I’d say this had got to hurt! Imagine your name being called out as the winner … only to have minutes later be revoked and being told that there was a mistake. Wow! That is all I can say. The recent Australia’s Next Top Model tv show just had that anomaly. Although I have to admit the real winner is more beautiful that the other one, they should have stuck with what was announced.
The reason was that total vote count changed at the last minute, I would say that was lame. There is always a cut off time where all votes before that will be counted as valid. The 1st runner up should still have been declared as the winner. Instead, she had the awkward moment on live television telling the host that it is alright. It is not alright. I know her ego was hurt.
People said that happened because they wanted to boost up the ratings. I do not think that is a fair assumption. It was really just a bad mistake. Still, congratulations to the winner. She is more beautiful and taller. But the way the announcement of the winner was handled. I would say they should have stuck with their initial announcement.
