What happened to world peace?
Brazil’s Miss Amazon contest this year actually descended into real tears and tiaras, when the runner-up ripped the crown from the winner’s head and threw it to the ground:
The runner-up with the grievance is Sheislane Hayalla. We’re not sure of the translation, but you can expect the words – and finger – pointed at winner Carolina Toledo weren’t encouraging.
The stoush went down on Friday night at a convention centre in Manaus, the Amazon’s largest city.
Hayalla faced the media the following day and could only offer this as an explanation for her behaviour:
“Money talks in Manaus and I wanted to show the Amazon people money doesn’t talk here. She didn’t deserve the title.
Toledo, who will now represent her state in the Miss Brazil contest, kept a low profile, saying only that “I don’t have words to explain the way I feel.”
