VIDEO: Miss Florida Crowns WRONG Winner As Pageant Chaos Continues
What is going on with beauty pageants?
Earlier this week, Miss Delaware Amanda Longacre was stripped of her crown for being too old, and now Miss Florida Elizabeth Fechtel (pictured on left) has been dethroned after just six days because it turns out officials miscounted the votes and mistakenly gave her the title.
Victoria Cowen (pictured on right), who had been the runner-up, has now been announced as the correct winner.
According to a statement released by Miss Florida organizers, an “error in the tabulation process” led to Fechtel being initially crowned even though Cowen had higher scores.
Cowen will now compete in September’s Miss America pageant.
