"The crown goes to the first runner-up," Mrs World announced onstage.
Earlier this month, the Mrs Sri Lanka pageant ended up in a messy controversy after Mrs World Caroline Jurie stood up on stage, announced that the newly-crowned winner doesn’t deserve it, and proceeded to yank the crown off her head.
