Understandably, Filipinos on Twitter exploded with joy and pride:
Prior to Pia's eventual victory though, host Steve Harvey mistakenly announced Miss Colombia as the winner before redacting the statement and announcing the correct victor. Twitter did NOT let him go unscathed:
Harvey has since said that that mix-up in the announcement was a "horrible mistake" on his part. Well, tell that to the people in Colombia.
As for us, Filipinos? We're just happy for Pia! Congratulations, Ms. Wurtzbach!
