Oprah Winfrey‘s reported comments on the recently concluded Miss Universe 2011 will surely put a black eye on this year’s result if this is really true.
Miss Universe 2011 crown was given to Miss Angola Leila Lopes.
However, the high profile celebrity, Winfrey, reportedly expressed her disappointment with the final results of the Miss Universe 2011. Twitter and Facebook posts say that she specifically pointed out how the contestants answered in the question and answer portion. Oprah expressed her favor on Miss Philippines Shamcey Supsup over the rest of the Top 5 contestants.
Below is Oprah Winfrey’s reported comments on the Miss Universe 2011 as stated on Twitter and Facebook posts.
I have a reservation with the result. If the only basis is the Q & A portion, after having been trimmed down to 5, Miss Philippines deserve to win. What made her different from the rest is that she had no seconds to re-think of her answer as she had no interpreter to break the ice. The rest had their interpreters and having breaks on seconds to think about their answers. Hands down, Miss Philippines answered straight to the point.
Note: The above quote was taken from several social networking sites and as of posting, neither Oprah nor NBC has confirmed the accuracy of the statement.
Update: Oprah Winfrey’s camp denied that the host made a comment about the Miss Universe 2011 Results
