Rhode Island native, former BU student, and Miss Universe 2012 Olivia Culpo had the pleasure of sitting in one of the judge’s chairs for Sunday night’s Miss Universe 2015 pageant. Funny enough, one of the contestants she was judging was Olivia Jordan, a fellow former BU student who finished as the second runner-up.
Everything was going smoothly for Culpo until the final decision gaffe that the world continues to talk about one day later. She lended her account via Twitter in real time.
Like many, her initial reaction was shock and confusion.

Sympathy for host Steve Harvey.
And, finally, just one word.
