Miss Colombia is a gracious winner-er-oops!-actually-runner-up. Ariadna Gutiérrez posted a message on Instagram Tuesday after she was accidentally crowned Miss Universe, then quickly un-crowned, People reports. "After the storm comes the calm," she writes. "I am the most fortunate and thankful for having the support not only from one country but from the whole entire world." She adds that she brought happiness to Colombia even by "becoming Miss Universe for only a couple of minutes."

"Today because of that COLOMBIA and the LATIN COMMUNITY are being talked about in every corner of the world," she writes. "I also want to congratulate the Philippines for their new Miss Universe. The happiness that you must be feeling must be incredible." "Your destiny is written for you," she notes. "And my destiny was this." In less heartwarming news, TMZ reports that Vivid Entertainment has offered Gutiérrez $1 million to make a sex tape. (Despite the massive error, host Steve Harvey will probably be back at the pageant.)
