The four-month reign of Miss Puerto Rico Kristhielee Caride, has come to an end following months riddled with several incidents.
According to Desiree Lowry, one of the organisers of the Puerto Rico franchise of Miss Universe “She just wasn’t a good fit”.
Lowry reveals that there’s a new Miss Universe Puerto Rico after this year’s title holder got her crown stripped and the final straw was what she told the national media.
“When I’m listening and she says, ‘I don’t like the camera,’ I say that is a big problem,” Lowry said at a Thursday news conference. “Miss Puerto Rico is a public figure and part of your job is to be in front of the camera.”
But Caride said she will learn from her mistakes.
“It is human to err, also it’s the valiant who remember their errors and want to move forward being the example of a real woman, holding the head high before all adversity that happens in life,” she said on Facebook. “I will always have the memory of that night, November 12, where I won the title and all the experiences and beautiful memories that I have had as Miss Universe Puerto Rico 2016.”
