Imagine being crowned the winner of a beauty pageant only to be told a couple of days later that the organisers got it wrong and you didn’t actually win! This happened to Synthia Nath…
New Zealand beauty pageant queen Synthia Nath was crowned Miss Globe New Zealand 2014 on Saturday, 10th May.
However, two days later, the 19-year-old was told that she was mistaken for another girl and wrongly announced the winner – not cool.
Apparently, Synthia was mixed up with Loriza Latif and was told “it was another Indian girl that should have won”. Organisers said it was an “honest mistake” because the two girls “look alike”.
Not surprisingly, Synthia is now seeking compensation for her entry fee and wants organisers to apologise.
According to reports, Synthia was told to give the crown and sash to the real winner, although she was late informed in an email: “You can keep it and pretend that you still are Miss Globe.”
That would just be weird!
