Queen for a day? Computer glitch crowns wrong winner in Canada beauty pageant

The reign is over -- time to give back the crown.
Just 24 hours after winning the Miss Universe Canada pageant on Saturday, organizers told Denise Garrido that she actually finished in fourth place, due to a computer error, the Toronto Sun reports.
“During the validation of the computerized scoring results (which occurs the following day), a typo was discovered in the top five entries, which significantly impacted the final results of the competition,” pageant director Denis Davila said in a statement.
Davila visited Garrido in Bradford, Ontario, on Monday to tell her about the glitch.

“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,” Davila said.
Calgary’s Riza Santos, who was declared the real winner, will be flown back to Toronto this week, the Toronto Sun reports.
