In a recent interview, Ariadna said she did not expect the Filipina-German beauty queen to win the crown as she and her fellow candidates rarely see her, so she likens her to a “ghost.”

“I actually saw her twice during the competition, once at the dining area and during rehearsals. But a person like a… a ghost! You see her and never again, like the exit signs! Nobody saw her,” she said.

“I used to go with the Latinas but we sat with the Asians and I did not notice her. She was very solitary, too. I did not notice her and when I did, I did not think of her as my competition. That is the truth,” she added.

It can be recalled that Pia’s victory became controversial after host Steve Harvey announced that Ariadna was the winner of the said beauty pageant but later withdrew it and declared Pia as the winner.

Meanwhile, Miss Bulgaria 2015 Radostina Todorova – who received praise for the support she gave Pia Wurtzbach five years ago – was once again defended as a Pinay beauty queen on social media.

While Pia Wurtzbach has not yet commented on the issue, Ariadna clarified her statement in the comment section of her Instagram account.

“[I never said Pia was undeserving of her win]. People don’t understand what I said. I feel so sad for the super nice [Filipinos] I’ve met in my life. They are not like this,” she said.

Pia Wurtzbach is the third Filipina to win Miss Universe, followed by Catriona Gray who won in 2018.
