Riza Santos who is known here in the Philippines when she joined the Pinoy Big Brother: Celebrity Edition has just been crowned Miss Universe Canada 2013!
It was first announced last Saturday, May 25 at the St. Lawrence Centre for the Arts in Toronto that MissUniverse Canada 2013 winner is Denise Garrido and 3rd Runner-up position is former PBB Housemate Riza Santos.
But on Sunday upon the validation of the computerized scoring results, a typo was discovered in the top 5 entries, which significantly impacted the final results of the competition.
This is the first instance of this type of error in the 11 years that Beauties of Canada (BOC) has produced the Miss Universe Canada pageant.
