Miss Universe Canada 2013 Riza Santos

OHMYGOSSIP — Riza Santos (born August 31, 1986) is a Canadian television personality and beauty queen. She competed in the Miss Earth 2006 pageant, in which she was given the Miss Photogenic and Miss Fontana awards. She also competed in Miss World 2011 contest, where she placed 30th out of 113 contestants. She will represent Canada in Miss Universe 2013 in Russia.

During her participation with Pinoy Big Brother: Celebrity Edition 2, Riza Santos played for Bantay Bata, ABS-CBN Foundation’s charitable institution.

Santos competed at the 2013 edition of Miss Universe Canada held in Toronto where she was hailed 1st Runner up to Denise Garrido. 24 hours later, it was later revealed that she originally won due to a typo error in the ratings of the top 5 entries, which afterwards, significantly impacted the final results of the competition. A week later, she was officially crowned as the new Miss Universe Canada 2013 in her hometown, Calgary, Alberta. 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. Garrido has actually ranked as third runner-up.

Miss Universe 2013 will be the 62nd Miss Universe pageant. It will be held on November 9, 2013 at the Crocus City Hall in Moscow, Russia. Olivia Culpo, Miss Universe 2012 from the USA will crown her successor at the end of the event. This will be the first time Russia will host. The pageant will be televised on NBC and Telemundo.

Miss Universe is an annual international beauty contest run by the Miss Universe Organization. The pageant is the most publicized beauty contest in the world with 600 million viewers. The contest was founded in 1952 by California clothing company Pacific Mills. The pageant became part of Kayser-Roth and then Gulf and Western Industries, before being acquired by Donald Trump in 1996. In 1998, Miss Universe changed its name from Miss Universe, Inc. to Miss Universe Organization and the headquarters moved from Long Beach California, to New York City that year. Donald Trump brought in a new team of professionals to the contest headed by its new CEO, Molly Miles, and president Maureen Reidy. The contest would use the slogan “Redefined for Today” for promotion of the pageants.
