Robbed? Miss Jamaica’s striking good looks and unmistakable poise have left Miss Universe pageant viewers saying the Beauty Queen was robbed after being named fourth runner-up.
Miss Universe fans were in an uproar Sunday, Jan. 25 when Miss Colombia Paulina Vega was crowned 2015’s pageant queen, with audible boos heard as fan favorite, Miss Jamaica Kaci Fennell was named fourth runner-up.
Although coming in fifth is a tremendous accolade, many in the audience were extremely upset and felt that Miss Jamaica Kaci Fennell was robbed of the title.
As soon as the judges awarded the 22-year-old fifth place in the competition, the Twittersphere immediately expressed their shock and disappointment at the results.
There are several theories circulating regarding Fennell’s loss, which range from her short haircut to her Jamaican heritage.
The pageant, which is owned by Donald Trump, has seen its fair share of controversy lately, but this seems to have brought viewers over the top.
Jamaica’s Kaci Fennell may not have taken home the Miss Universe 2015 crown, but she is certainly reigning supreme in the international media.
Fennell certainly won over the hearts of millions during the annual beauty pageant in Miami.
From the British publication the Daily Mail to the Washington Post, Kaci Fennell has been the talk of the town.
Fennell gained a large following due to her striking beauty, confidence intelligence and unconventional style – wearing her hair in a Halle Berry-esque pixie cut instead of the traditional long pageant waves.
Fans claim Miss Fennell was denied the title after she proudly called Usain Bolt, the world’s fastest short-distance runner, and reggae-king Bob Marley her country’s greatest contributions to the world.
Fennell retrned to Jamaica on Monday at around 4:15 pm. She was met by her friends along with Miss Universe Jamaica pageant directors Carl Williams and Jacqueline Jackson, and chaperone Dionne Duncan.
Unfortunately, no government officials were at the airport.
Congrats Kaci Fennell, you’re still a winner!
